His numerous awards and prizes include the Vladimir Horowitz Award, and grants from the Mozarteum Argentino, Martha Baird Rockefeller, and the Concert Artists Guild.

Delgado has been awarded a medal of honor by UNESCO of Buenos Aires, and also by the Mayor of Rosario, Delgado’s hometown, for his contributions as an ambassador of music. In 2012 he played with Martha Argerich at the Teatro El Circulo in Rosario, and in 2014 he performed as guest of honour at the Universidad Nacional de Rosario.

Delgado has been on the artist piano faculties of several universities in Japan and in California. He is currently a full professor of piano at California State University, Fullerton, where he has established a scholarship fund for talented pianists in tribute to the renowned pianist Alicia de Larrocha. Delgado has served on the juries of such international competition as the William Kapell, the Gina Bachauer, the Vega in Japan, the second Martha Argerich International Piano Competition in Buenos Aires, the San Jose International Piano Competion, and the Jose Iturbi Competition in Los Angeles.

“Virtuosity, clean sound, and passion… the best” reports La Capital of Argentina. Following an appearance in Tokyo in the Pablo Casals Hall, critics hailed his playing as “a marvellous performance, deeply emotional as well as lyrical” (Musica Nova – Tokyo). Norwegian critics described Delgado as “a pianist of a thousand nuances, a fantastic experience.” (Kristiansand).In Russia, “Delgado’s Bach had brilliance, a profound meditation and a musical tone rarely heard” (Sovietskaya Kultura – Moscow).
