Gonzalo Grau (percussion)

Gonzalo Grau began his musical studies at the age of three in Caracas and has developed skills in many instruments, from the viola da gamba and the cello to the flamenco cajón and his principal instrument, the piano. A Berklee College graduate, Gonzalo has established himself as a multi-instrumentalist and his varied credits include performances with Venezuelan music projects Maroa, Schola Cantorum de Venezuela, Camerata de Caracas and the Simón Bolivar National Youth Orchestra, jazz icon Maria Schneider and the Latin jazz giant Timbalaye.

As a music director he leads two projects of his own, Plural (a Latin jazz-Flamenco-Venezuelan fusion ensemble) and La Clave Secreta (salsa fusion), which was nominated for the 2008 Grammys in the Best Tropical Album category. As a recording artist, Grau has participated in over 80 productions that bridge both classical and popular music.

His most recent productions include the studio recording of Golijov’s La Pasión según San Marcos (winner of the ECHO award 2010), Rolando Villazón’s album México (winner of the ECHO award 2011), and Nazareno with pianists Katia and Marielle Labèque, all released by the German label Deutsche Grammophon.
