The Concurso Internacional de Guitarra is considered as one of the most important at a world level and a reference of Spanish guitar. The main aim of this competition is to help young talents to be known for their art and promote the exchange of technical knowledge and of guitar works, both old and contemporary. As a novelty, this edition has made a qualitative leap establishing relations with other international competitions and favouring concerts in other international festivals.
Promoted by the Fundación GSD and with the collaboration of the Real Conservatorio Superior de Música de Madrid and the Sociedad Española de la Guitarra, Artemus Sociedad Cooperativa Madrileña is the company entrusted with organising both the Concurso Internacional de Guitarra Clásica GSD and the Festival de la Guitarra de Madrid.
From this year 2015, Madrid already counts with a guitar event equivalent to the most important musical capitals, welcoming the I Festival de la Guitarra de Madrid, with world class figures in the field of guitar like Javier Somoza, Pablo Márquez, Joaquín Clerch or Marco Tamayo, as well as from the world of early music, like Hopkinson Smith.
