Mariano García

“Mature concertmaster, deep and sensitive. An artist in fullness.”
“Mariano García is endowed with that characteristic personality that distinguishes the best instrumentalists”. – Justo Romero
Versatile musician, Mariano García has the ability to sound different in each work he performs, taking care of the particularities of each score without losing his own personality.
Mariano García has developed his career in a triple facet: as a soloist, as a chamber musician and as an orchestra musician, all of them enriching each other.
He has performed concerts in the main cities of Spain, France and Italy, performing in venues such as the National Auditorium in Madrid, the Palau de la Música in Valencia or the Zaragoza Auditorium. He has worked with directors such as Zubin Mehta, Juanjo Mena, Pinchas Steinberg or Fabio Biondi, and has participated in festivals such as the Autumn Musical Soriano, the International Festival of Cagnes-sur-Mer or the International Music Festival of Deià.
As a soloist he has interpreted the main works written for cello and orchestra, from Haydn’s Concerto No. 1 to Beethoven’s triple, including concerts by Schumann, Saint-Saëns or Dvorak or Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations.
Passionate about chamber music, he was a founding member of the Mendelssohn Trio, with which he won the National Music Chamber Award for Musical Youth of Spain, and is currently a member of the Rebek Trio, which regularly performs with a collection of Stradivarius donated by the prestigious Parisian luthier Claude Lebet.
He has recorded for the EMI label the integral music for cello solo, and cello with piano by Joaquín Rodrigo.
Educated with professors such as Lluís Claret and Asier Polo, he studied music at the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Valencia, obtaining the highest grades in cello and chamber music. He has received advisory from artists such as Mirolslav Rostropovich, Charles Tunell and Stefan Popov.
Currently he combines his activity in recitals and as a soloist with orchestra with his work as a soloist teacher of the Orchestra of Valencia, and with chamber music projects.
