Artist info

Javier Vázquez Grela

Spanish born pianist Javier Vázquez Grela studied at the Conservatory of music of A Corunna with the prestigious pianists Natalia Lamas and Rafael Sebastiá, obtaining his Diploma in 1995 with distinction. In 2001 he moved to Barcelona to study with pianist Antonio Ruiz Mellado at Luthier Academy, where in 2003 he was uninamously awarded the Concert Diploma Cum Laude. From 1998 he has been the accompanist at the Conservatory of A Corunna.

He has played extensively as a soloist, accompanist and Chamber musician in different concert halls of Spain (Barcelona, Zaragoza, Madrid, Galicia), México (Guadalajara, México DF, etc.), Portugal, Holland (Amsterdam, Utrecht) and Budapest (Franz Liszt Museum). He toured Mexico in 2007, playing all the songs and dances from Federico Mompou as well as his Variations on a theme by Chopin to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Mompou’s death. His wide repertoire — covering all periods and styles with special emphasis on the twentieth century — has brought first performances of many piano works and songs of Galician and Mexican composers playing first premiere of Fernando Arias’ “Concert for Piano and Orchestra” at Santiago de Compostela. He has made recordings for Radio Galega, radio Nacional de España and Television de Galicia. He recorded Gershwin’s Rhapsody in blue with the Melide Symphonic Orchestra and a CD with works of Brahms and Poulenc with clarinetist Antonio Suarez.
