He began his studies of guitar at age 7. His principal teachers were Abel Carlevaro, Guido Santórsola and Héctor Tosar.
Rewards in Competitions: * 1972 Porto Alegre (Brazil) * 1975 Radio France (Paris) * 1975 Andrés Segovia Competition in Mallorca (Spain). His New York debut in 1977 won critical accolades. Fernández has returned to the U.S.A. every season since then, playing with prestigious orchestras as well as giving recitals, always to great acclaim from critics and audiences.
His London debut, in Wigmore Hall (1983), had also a great impact. It resulted in an exclusive recording contract with Decca, a label for which he made 18 recordings (solos, and with the English Chamber Orchestra and the London Philharmonic), that cover a wide section of the repertoire, from Bach to the contemporary. He has also made a recording with violinist Alexander Markow, covering most of Paganini's work for violin and guitar, and two duo CDs with Japanese guitarist Shin-Ichi Fukuda in Japan. He has recorded the complete lute suites by Bach and "Romantic Guitar" a 19th-century guitar recording on a period instrument. In 2005 was the release of the CD "Between two worlds". Fernández has also played, with the same success, in most European countries, and in the Far East (Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Hong Kong and China, Thailand and Singapore), as well as in South America and Mexico. He has a vivid interest in historical instruments, and he plays often the repertoire of the XIXth century on a period guitar. As a teacher he taught several years at the University's School of Music in Montevideo, where he is now a fellow researcher and gave masterclasses and lectures all around the world.
He has written a major book on guitar technique (Technique, Mechanism, Learning, published by Chanterelle Verlag, Heidelberg and in Spanish edition by ART Ediciones, Montevideo), a book of essays on Bach's lute music, published in 2003 by ART Ediciones, and several articles in leading guitar publications. He was the secretary of ISCM Uruguay for two years. He is also a founder the CIM/UNESCO section in Uruguay, Artistic Director of Montevideo's biannual International Guitar Festivals since 1996, and of Colombia's Encuentros Nacionales de la Guitarra since 2000.
