At the age of 18, Paco Montalvo became the youngest violinist to make a 21st century debut in the main hall of Carnegie Hall of New York, with a virtuoso performance of the Paganini’s “1st Concerto for violin”. International critics consider him as one of the most outstanding maestros of the world and
the best Spanish violinist.
Creator of an innovative style, Paco Montalvo brings new highlights into the violin on its leading role in flamenco music.
In a totally different artistic contribution, he plays his own versions of Paco de Lucía, Falla, Sarasate, Granados, Tárrega and Albéniz masterpieces, as well as contemporary artists of Spanish music. Moreover, his musical arrangement includes popular flamenco songs and peculiar and universal masterpieces.
“Flamenco violin’s soul”
is his first album, in which he reflects his flamenco roots. With an original approach, the violin sings between different flamenco styles and harmonic combinations, showing emotions only reserved for flamenco singers and guitarists until now.
After being number one in sales, Paco Montalvo brings out his new album “Corazón Flamenco”. It becomes top seller just a few hours after its launch. In this new album
he insists again in the violin’s main role on flamenco’s different variations and other musical genres such as boleros, tangos or even on pop songs, without forgetting memorable songs of Camarón, Paco de Lucía or Spanish classics.
He has received many international and national awards, including the
“Arthur Rubinstein International Award”, Premio Libertad, Premio Bandera
de Andalucía, Premio Flamenco “Pepa de Utrera”…
In words of this institution’s President, the prize is “a well-deserved tribute to its original contribution to the new instrumental music with flamenco roots".
The consolidation of the new instrumental style he has created, “the flamenco violin” as main voice in flamenco, is the result of the evolution of flamenco in relation with
the main classical musical instruments and particularly with the most
sophisticated of them, the violin.
Few of his musical videos overpass 1.550.000 views, with more than 15.000 recognition and support comments just in one video written by people from all over the world that start following him every day.
Many media outlets reflect his excellent work,

"Talent and virtuosity overflow in every note (...). The public ended up standing and clapping (...) has come to stay. He is a safe value"
