I am currently promoting two different concert programs.
CON/TRASTS - SOUND EMOTIONS - 2022
CON/TRASTES – SOUND EMOTIONS is a classical guitar concert that proposes the listening of different works of the contemporary guitar repertoire in order to take the public on a sound journey through different sensations that range from euphoria to deep reflection, at the same time that there is a pleasant interaction with the attendees to talk about the power of music to make us move from one emotional state to another.
The program includes works that represent a contrast both in rhythm and in intention and musical discourse, which helps to be aware of the changes they produce in our state of mind when comparing them. At the end of the concert, an exercise is carried out with the public so that they share their experience during the recital, turning the event into a collective playful experience.
"OF SADNESS, MELANCHOLY AND NOSTALGIA..."
“In this album I intend, in a very personal way and with a humble interpretation, to provide a sound accompaniment to those moments of memories, reflection, sorrow or longing, without the greater purpose than to lighten their weight and make their transition easier, remembering that the melancholic state has a unique power and a magic that means that, by recovering certain memories from the past, we can renew our desire to be alive.”
