“HOMELAND: Piano Music from Argentina Vol. I”      

Natalia González Figueroa’s CD Homeland, presents a promenade in the sound landscapes of Argentina, from the XXth century to present time, through some of its most significant composers, at least as far as is referred to “nationalistic aesthetics”. The journey begins with the folk “impresionism” of Alberto Williams, which can already be perceived from the suggestive title “Poem of the Ravine”, structured in three movements. The unmistakable lyricism of Santa Fe city’s composer Carlos Guastavino can be appreciated in his “Three sonatinas” from 1949 written in London. Moving forward in time we arrive to Alberto Ginastera`s “subjective nationalism”, where the folk elements are accompanied by big dissonances and energetic rhythms in his Sonata Nº 1 in four movements. The recording ends with a more recent vision of national folk music: the “ Chacarera endebussyada ” by joung composer Juan Manuel Abras, who, in words of the renown composer and conductor Lucio Bruno Videla, “juxtaposes a selection of lyrical and choreographical musical elements of local and popular origin (chacarera and baguala), submitting them to musical resources, in this case of a French aesthetic, supporting the long standing intercultural relation between France and Argentina”. Natalia’s interpretation is impeccable, powerful, virtuosic, full of energy but also of  a variety of colours and subtleties that make this record a real jewel of argentinean discography for piano.  (byMusica Clasica BA) (2018)

“Sonata Tanguera Buenos Aires Alquimia EP”      

Based on the classic sonata form, Aguirre creates a new musical form developing with an extremely elaborate language, which inherits the most exquisit composition resources from Bartók, Stravinsky and Debussy, manteining the exact doses of the “porteña” music of Buenos Aires city, so that tango is un underlaying idea thorout the piece. It manteins a formal structure, that comes from the disaggregation of a sonata form’s firts movement. (by Paola Rompato) (2017)

“Modern Piano Tango”

An interesting compilation of piano works inspired on argentinean Tango by international composers, from Satie and Stravinsky to Piazzolla, Marlos Nobre and Pablo Aguirre. The soloist presents the result of her hand by hand work with some of the creators, searching for the idea of tango for contemporary piano at the concert hall. An innovative proposal, an interesting encounter: Tango sound from the perspective of 20th and 21st century composers. Works where Tango shows itself or just lets itself be guessed.
