The winner of many prestigious awards, including first prizes in the Andrés Segovia in Palma de Mallorca, Luys Milán, and Manuel Ponce International Guitar Competitions, Iliana 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 Best Interpretation of Spanish Music in two consecutive years, 1995 and 1996. “Her name deserves to go down in guitar history as one of the great players of our time.” Classical Guitar Magazine; “She, simply, radiantly shines, a virtuoso in service to the music“, American Record Guide.
