The project: AMERICA
George Gershwin & Astor Piazzolla; two of the greatest composers from this vast continent divided in North and South: AMERICA.
These composers found a unique way to combine the popular music of their countries (Jazz and Tango) with classical music. The result was one that hardly could be envisioned. They quickly became among the most performed composers worldwide and wrote some of the most beloved tunes of all times.
AMERICA sheds new light on the works of these composers, bringing well known compositions (such as the four Seasons of Buenos Aires from Piazzolla, or Summertime from Gershwin) to the world of the virtuoso piano transcription.
This is a new and valuable contribution to the piano literature, both for the music lover as well as for the professional. If it gets the attention that I believe it deserves, it surely will gain worldwide recognition and add to the enjoyment of their followers all around.
This project has caught so much attention in its initial stage already, that recording dates have been settled for May 2018, and even some concert promotors have shown interest for the season 2018-2019 in Europe and abroad!
The CD production will be done with the foremost Spanish label for Classical Music: IBS Classical. Based in Granada, Spain, they have top notch technicians, equipment, one of Spain´s best recording hall´s and a great staff of producers. The release will be distributed worldwide (so the physical CD can be bought in most countries around the globe) and will be included online in all major digital streaming platforms (itunes, spotify, google, amazon, etc).
As you can imagine, such conditions require a very high cost. Your collaboration will greatly help with all the costs of production involved.
The recording will take place on the 2nd week of May 2018 in the spectacular Manuel de Falla hall in Granada-Spain. If we succeed in crowdfunding this project together, the album will be released during the summer months of 2018.
The rewards range from downloading the digital tracks to your hard drive or having a physical cd, all the way to a private concert for you and your own audience.
