PROMENADE PIANO DUO
Pilar Martín, Álvaro Saldaña

25 March, 2020
8pm

A piano duet invites us to a musical “Kátharsis”

The Promenade Piano Duo includes Pilar Martín (Málaga, 1994) and Álvaro Saldaña (Toledo, 1995), two pianists working together as one in a notable display of grace and equilibrium, elegance and assured confidence -in short, expressing all the brilliance and technical skills which characterise the new generation of Spanish musicians.

With the title “Kátharsis”, the Promenade Piano Duo presents a surprising programme of works by Mozart, Kapustin, Infante, Anderson and Ravel in a concert organised in partnership with Juventudes Musicales de Sevilla. Although the duo was formed in the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Aragón, they are based in Málaga for professional reasons, where they combine teaching and concert performances. Their repertoire includes works for two pianos and for four hands.

From the classicism of W. A. Mozart’s Sonata K.448 for two pianos, composed in 1781 and once credited with the ability to develop the “Mozart Effect”, increasing the intelligence and cerebral activity much more than other music -although unfortunately this theory has been debunked- the duo passes on to “Paraphrase on Dizzy Gillespie’s Manteca” by the Ukrainian composer and pianist Nikolai Kapustin, born in 1937, closely linked to jazz and its hybridisation with classical music, as shown in this homage to the famous “Manteca” (1947) by the trumpeter D. Gillespie and Chano Pozo, one of the most rhythmic and robust expressions of Afro-Cuban jazz.

“Three Andalusian Dances” by Manuel Infante is probably the best-known piece by this composer, who was born in Seville in 1883, moved to Paris in the early 20th century, and died there in 1958. This piece is an example of the Spanish nationalism which Infante expressed in many of his works, which became popular thanks to the high profile of the great pianist José Iturbi, to whom he dedicated several pieces.

“Carmen Fantasy”, by Greg Anderson (1981) is a virtuoso piece in the great Romantic tradition, based on themes from the opera “Carmen” by G. Bizet.

And finally, “La Valse”, by Maurice Ravel, is a transcription for two pianos of the famous choreographic poem, composed in 1920, which Ravel began as a Romantic homage to the Viennese waltz, and which after the disasters and barbarism of the First World War became a kind of musical metaphor for the destruction of Western civilisation. This fantastic transcription for two pianos has attracted great pianists, from the Ravel specialist Martha Argerich to brilliant young talents like Alice Sara Ott and Francesco Tristano.

The concert has been organised in partnership with
