For two pianos and presenter


At the outset of the twentieth century there was an outburst of new forms of artistic creation with very different social origins and aesthetic approaches. In the United States, jazz was born. This style of composing and performing music emerged in New Orleans and was based on rhythms with Afro-American roots such as the blues and ragtime. The success of this new style was such that it soon reached Europe and was embraced by classical-music composers. This concert narrates the history of an encounter between two different musical worlds, which, nevertheless, wound up intertwining.

AFRICA INSPIRES THE WEST. Polyrhythms and polyphonies For percussion, piano, projections, lights and narrator


We are always inclined to believe that the West exercises a cultural supremacy with respect to the rest of the world. But this recital will show just the opposite: the rhythmic sophistication of African music is very superior to European music, to the extent that it has inspired many European composers.

This concert will also explain how to discover and reproduce the richness of African rhythms and melodies, as well as the main instruments used in African music.
