María Luisa Anido, the Great Lady of Guitar, when hearing Iliana play, wrote: “I am impressed by your wonderful guitaristic art, and I am proud to know that a woman came to such a degree of artistic perfection.” – Barcelona, 1995
After hearing Iliana Matos perform in Caracas, the legendary Alirio Díaz wrote: “Her refined technique, always put at the service of a personal musicality, is what more can surprise in the guitar art of the virtuosa Iliana Matos. All this, added to other exquisite qualities, has made her an appealing personality within our world of music.” – Venezuela, 1992
Prize winner of eleven major international competitions, Iliana Matos made history by becoming the first woman to win the prestigious S.A.R. La Infanta Doña Cristina International Guitar Competition, and the only guitarist to win the special prize for Best Interpretation of Spanish Music in two consecutive years.
