Since his early days, Agustín Luna has been a promising figure in the Argentine musical and guitar scene. Now, this promise has become a reality that presents him as an authentic example of performer, arranger and composer. Ever since his teens, he has mixed academia with a deep exploration of the musical languages of our land. That patient and, at times, painstaking search brought him close to those he considered his mentors. From them, he gained knowledge and experience that merged with his own skills. Agustin’s restlessness in the pursuit of his musical roots is one of the traits for which I value him the most. To keep a culture alive, one must not be a mere spectator, but also a participant and creator. Agustín Luna has made himself into an interpreter, commanding the subtle signs of musical languages and becoming a messenger of his people. As such, he combines an outstanding technique of academic and popular elements, blended with his own particular sound. Luna displays a singular creativity in composition and interpretation due to his polyphonic command of the guitar. As a result of a deep study of the classics, the influence of composers such as Bach and Villa Lobos, intermingled with tango and folklore, can be heard in his music. In a few words, Agustín is a mixture of virtuosity, sensitivity and emotion.
On this occasion, he will perform with Ljubica Damčević, who has been involved in tango music and dance since the age of thirteen, first in the "Tango Juventud" orchestra under the leadership of Aleksandar Nikolić (Beltango Quintet), and since 2013 in the "Tanguango" quintet, in which she acts as a violinist, singer, composer, arranger and lyricist. She collaborated with important artists of the tango scene, including Giacomo Medici, Luciano Tobaldi, Agustin Luna, Leonel Capitano, etc. In 2021, she performed the main role in the tango operetta "Maria de Buenos Aires" by Astor Piazzolla.

I was quite amazed at just how great groove this was! The band could be swinging, rocking, funking, jazzing or whatever, that tango rhythm was embedded in it all. That was the charm of this unique band. Rarely the tempo remain constant with mood swings plenty! This “senors” are tension building maestros”

“Tango Jazz Quartet, from Argentina. A foursome that demonstrates how tango and its variants support a music culture more than they offer just an excuse to take the floor with risqué intent, the TJQ tour the world like missionaries”.

By Nigel Jarret. Wales Arts, Review

This new approach to Tango and Jazz has received an enthusiastic reaction both in Argentina as well as internationally.

“SILENT LANDSCAPES” – CONCERT OF PIANIST ERATO ALAKIOZIDOU (Greece)

"SILENT LANDSCAPES"

Piano Miniatures inspired from Mediterranean /Composers from Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece

(Works from New cd Release “Silent Landscapes” and the cd “In Blue and White”)

ERATO ALAKIOZIDOU, piano (Greece)

322304792_508592294718544_4601729378589293329_n

The concert will take place on

Saturday, 25th March 2023 at 20:00h

Entrance Free

Reservations are mandatory: info@guarnerius.rs  or  066/8028-368

Silent Landscapes CD is based on works composed for the pianist’s MMS (Mediterranean Miniature Sketches) project and on pre-existing material selected by Erato. During that project a total of 70 works were publicly performed in various Mediterranean countries, the majority as world premieres.

Each of the 32 miniatures narrates its own unique story, yet as a whole they synthesize a descriptive work that combines images, feelings and tone colors to form the pianist’s grand narrative. Erato arranged the pieces in this order so that they fit her story, since the Mediterranean – a common reference point for all composers from Greece and – served as both motive and inspiration.
