Marco Granados epitomizes the 21st century musician, having maintained a versatile career as an innovative chamber and orchestral musician, an international concerto and recital soloist, and a lead teaching artist and educator. He is one of the world’s leading flutists of Latin American music, and his diverse repertoire spans folk to classical music.
Since his New York City debut recital at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall in 1991, Marco has gone on to perform in Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium for “Sonidos Latinos”, a celebratory festival of Latin American music. He has performed the Jacques Ibert Flute Concerto and the Mozart Concerto for Flute and Harp with the New York City Symphony at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall and Merkin Concert Hall, and has been a featured soloist at Wigmore Hall in London. Marco has performed with many of the leading symphony orchestras in Venezuela, his native country, premiering both the Jacques Ibert and Aram Khachaturian flute concerti with the Maracaibo and Venezuelan Symphony Orchestras. In Peru, he gave the South American premiere of the Concerto for Flute and Orchestra by Mexican composer Samuel Zyman with the Philharmonic Orchestra of Lima. As an international soloist, his performances have taken him all over the world, including South Africa, Slovenia, Scotland, Japan, and China.
