The specific proposal is to find a space to hold a concert-talk in which part of the repertoire contained in the record material that I am promoting is performed, the cd is entitled "De tristeza, melancolía y nostalgia...", in addition to a pleasant interaction with the public to talk about the great power that music has as a transforming agent of deep and cathartic emotions in the human being.
RICARDO HERNÁNDEZ REYES - CLASSICAL GUITARIST
Originally from Mexico City and graduated from the Faculty of Music of the UNAM, specialized in concert guitar and winner of multiple national and international chamber music competitions. Founding member of the Guitar Orchestra of the National School of Music and currently an active member of the contemporary music guitar ensemble Sicarú.
He has been presented both in Mexico and in various European countries as well as in North and South America, obtaining important awards, among which are first places in festivals such as the Guitar Foundation of America (GFA) 2017, Southern Guitar Festival 2017, Brownsville Guitar Ensemble Competition 2017, EBAUABJO International Guitar Festival 2016, Honorable Mention at the Villa - Lobos Festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 2016, CDMX Youth Award 2014, Manuel M. Ponce Award 2014, Raúl Sánchez Clagett International Guitar Competition, Uruguay , 2014, first prizes at the Musile di Piave, Corato and Philadelphia festivals in Italy, 2014.
At the same time as a soloist he has performed on different stages in Mexico, Europe and South America. He is currently promoting his latest record production, which he presented at the Carolina University in Prague. He also collaborated with the Virtual Guitar Orchestra in three editions and is about to release a new album of Afro-Latin American music with the Sicarú ensemble, among other projects.
The project was born from the idea of recording a disc with representative works of the contemporary guitar repertoire that have sound characteristics linked to deep reflection, sorrow or longing, which provoke a mood of sadness, melancholy or nostalgia, being an ideal accompaniment to channel these emotions without the purpose of transforming them into joy, but rather as an accompaniment that helps us lighten the weight of those moments, music being a sublime vehicle that even allows us to enjoy them.
"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 magic that allows us to renew our desire to be alive by recovering certain memories of the past. "
To make possible the event it is only necessary:
• 1 room, auditorium or space that allows the public to be seated in the capacity allowed by the health contingency.
• 1 medium chair without armrests.
• 1 music stand with ambient or instrument microphone and simple amplification system (only necessary if the space is very large and does not have adequate acoustics for the natural sound of a classical guitar).
• 1 small display area for record material.
