Being part of the Scherzo Series program is the greatest honor that a pianist can receive in Spain.
Every year the greatest pianists gather in the Symphonic Hall of the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid as part of this series. Argerich, Zimerman, Kissin, Volodos, Yuja Wang, Sokolov, András Schiff ... dazzle the audience with performances to remember.
Our participation in the 25th anniversary of the Great Performers Scherzo Series has been a milestone in our concert career as a duo.
We knew that the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 crisis would prevent many of the regulars of this cycle from attending, so we decided to immortalize it in a high-quality video recording in order to share it and, at the same time, disseminate it as a promotion for our international career.
In life, everything we do comes from a need and, in music, that need is to establish a direct communication channel with the public to transmit something: a bit of our vision of the world, of our emotions, of our dreams , fears and achievements, of our memories with their smells, textures, sounds and colors.
We want to share with you an extract from the criticism that Blas Matamoro offered us at the end of the concert: “... we [the concert goers] were ecstatic. We once again saw that we continue living sweet and golden years for musical performance in Spain. The umpteenth test was the concert of two pianos and four-hand piano offered by Víctor and Luis del Valle: a couple of gallant young men, bullfighters, insolent and confident who wasted — if art is not always waste — talent, technical solidity, instrumental brilliance, study and cult domination of times and styles. "
At present, this crowdfunding is already a success: the degree of achievement of the proposed objective is exceeding our expectations and, in addition, the campaign itself is working as a magnificent tool for the dissemination of the project.
Your generous contribution will help to cover the expenses derived from filming, recording rights, sound, editing, photography, design ... On the other hand, the amount that exceeds the set goal will be used in a press campaign that will reach this project to many more people.
In all the established rewards, we guarantee priority in viewing the video or the musical work(s).
We thank you for your support and we look forward to sharing our joy for music with you soon through this fantastic full HD video and, of course, in the concert halls.
