About Grisha Goryachev
A native of St. Petersburg, Russia, Grisha Goryachev is renowned for his extraordinary musical sensitivity and technical virtuosity in both classical and flamenco styles. Grisha is one of very few guitarists in the world who is reviving the tradition of solo flamenco guitar in a concert setting that was practiced by legendary flamenco masters such as Ramón Montoya and Sabicas. He creates his own interpretations of these masterpieces, using dynamics and tone colors usually associated with classical guitar.
Grisha received his Bachelor, Master and Doctor of Musical Arts degrees from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, where he studied under famous guitar virtuoso Eliot Fisk. Since his immigration to the United States in 1995, Grisha has toured extensively in the states and abroad as a performer, instructor, and judge for many prominent festivals and venues.
