Spain & Argentina: Trio / Works by Cassado, De Falla, Piazzolla, tangos and milongas.

Spain & Argentina: Quintet / Works by Piazzolla, Troïlo, De Falla, Cassado, tangos and milongas.

Brasil: Sextet / Works by Villa-Lobos, Gismonti, bossa nova.

Alone with my cello all over the planet, in addition to Bach’s Suites, I would often play Gaspar Cassado’s sonata, a vibrant metaphor for Spain, and in particular for his native Catalonia and for Andalusia. It is from that work that the idea of performing an entire program designed like an initiatory journey was born, entitled Alvorada, “dawn” in Portuguese, the same title as that of a famous song by Cartola recorded exclusively for our album with the complicity of the great Brazilian artist Toquinho.

To share this dream, on stage and on a record, with the intense desire of having you salivate and move your toes to the rhythm of my heart’s whims and my nomadic loves, I have gathered exceptional musicians, specialists of flamenco, Argentinian tango, Brazilian bossa nova and Cuban sound, aware of all the subtleties of their art, deeply rooted in their culture and yet infinitely free and open to the world.
