An Evening With Ottmar Liebert June 15th, 2014
A five-time Grammy Award nominee, Ottmar Liebert has received 38 Goldand Platinum certifications in the United States, as well as certifications in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, and his debut album Nouveau Flamenco (1990) sold double-platinum in the United States. Liebert’s incredible global success on a musical level often seems like a simple outgrowth of his cultural background and powerful wanderlust in his formative years. Born in Cologne, Germany to a Chinese-German father and Hungarian mother, he began playing guitar at 11, and traveled extensively through Europe and Asia intent on fully absorbing each musical tradition he encountered. Liebert has since become one of the most successful instrumental artists of the past decade, thrilling audiences throughout the world and releasing a total of 25 albums including live releases, Christmas CDs, 15 CDs of original music, a DVD, and various remixes.
