ERNESTO CORDERO  

(b 1946 )

Composer and guitarist Ernesto Cordero (born in 1946 in New York and raised in Puerto Rico) has composed a large, rich catalogue distinguished by its Caribbean flavour. He has written eight concertos (four for guitar, two for violin, one for flute/piccolo and one for the Puerto Rican cuatro), orchestral compositions, a variety of chamber works in which the guitar appears in diverse ensembles, and numerous guitar solos, some of which have become standards. Ernesto Cordero began his higher studies in 1963 when he entered the Conservatory of Music in Puerto Rico and he continued at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Madrid, Spain where he earned a diploma in 1971. Subsequently, he did post-graduate work in composition with Roberto Caggiano in Rome, Italy from 1972 to 1974 and with Julián Orbón in New York from 1977 to 1978. He first studied guitar from 1961 to 1964 with Jorge Rubiano and he later worked with several teachers, most importantly Regino Sainz de la Maza in Spain in the 1960s and Alírio Díaz and Claudio de Angelis in Italy in 1972. Since 1971 he has taught composition and guitar in the music department of the University of Puerto Rico. In addition to his activities as composer, performer and teacher, Cordero was music director of the International Guitar Festival of Puerto Rico from 1980 to 1997. He has received important awards for composition and his music is performed and recorded worldwide by the finest artists. To date, there are more than forty recordings of Cordero’s works and most of his several dozen compositions have been published under the banners of leading publishers. He is in demand throughout the world as a distinguished participant in leading competitions and festivals. For more information, please visit www.ernestocordero.com.
