Winner of five grants in composition from the Chile Council of Arts, Javier Farías C. (1973) has been a faculty member at the Modern School of Music in Santiago, Chile since 2001. In his compositions has shown a constant predilection for the guitar, an instrument that appears in several of his chamber works, and for which he has written many solo pieces. Some of them have won first place in important Composition Contests in Europe, including Andrés Segovia (Spain) in 2005 for his work "Retorna", and Michele Pittaluga (Italy) in 2004 for his "Sonata for solo guitar". He also received the first place at the XIV Concorso 2 de Agosto in Bologna, Italy for his work "Canta la Tierra" written for symphonic orchestra and synthesizer. His catalogue also includes two concertos for guitar (the first one premiered by distinguished cuban guitarist Joaquín Clerch Díaz in Salzburg, Austria in 2001) and also a concerto for four guitars, percussion and string orchestra (2000). Among the interpreters that have performed his works are: L'Orchestra Filarmonica di Torino, Aspekte New Music Ensemble, Orquesta Sinfónica "Simón Bolivar" del Táchira, Orchestra del Teatro Comunale di Bologna, The Alturas duo, bandoneonist of Astor Piazzolla's sextet Daniel Binelli and guitarists Emanuele Segre, Gabriel Bianco, José Antonio Escobar and Carlos Bonell, among others. In December, 2003 the Modern Orchestra of Chile honored him with their "Best Composer of the Concert Season Award" for his work "Dezlía" for flamenco group, jazz ensemble and string orchestra. He is the founder and director of the Chilean Guitar Ensemble, dedicated to the expansion of guitar repertoire by Latin American composers with a special emphasis on those from Chile.
