Under his father’s guidance, Marcos Díaz started to play the guitar when he was eight years old. Shortly after that, he began his studies with the guitarist Isaías Savio, teacher at the Conservatorio Dramático e Musical de Sao Paulo, Brazil. Some years later, he moved to Spain and took up his studies at the Conservatorio Profesional de Música de Ourense where he studied under Tomás Camacho. Shortly thereafter, he enrolled in the Real Conservatorio Superior de Música de Madrid, where he studied under José Luis Rodrigo and won the ‘I Premio Extraordinario Fin de Carrera de Guitarra’ in 1984. During this period, he also attended several international guitar courses receiving master classes from such prestigious artists as David Russel, Manuel Barrueco, Sergio and Odair Assad.

 Work & Activities

So far, he has released three CDs for the recording label ‘Ópera tres’. One of these CDs includes pieces by Dowland, Bach, Sor, Barrios and Rodrigo and the other two contain his own guitar transcriptions of the six suites for the cello by J. S. Bach. All three CDs have been extraordinarily well received by critics worldwide.

 Other Interesting Aspects

Having been awarded first prize in several guitar competitions, he has been regularly invited to take part as a soloist in important festivals and concert halls in Europe and the United States.
