Beschrijving

Zangers uit de Gaucho traditie als Atahualpa Yupanqui  (Argentinië- 1908-1992) en Osiris Rodriguez Castillo (Uruguay-1925-1996) vormen één van de inspiratiebronnen voor dit bijzondere concertprogramma waarin de Uruguayaanse gitarist Gustavo Pazos  een muzikaal zelfportret schetst met eigen composities.
Hij vertelt over de melancholie, herinneringen en over Tacuarembó (Uruguay), de streek waar de leegte en de verstilling het leven bepalen. Pazos werd er geboren en ver weg van die uitgestrekte vlakte, realiseerde hij zich dat hij zich laaft aan die streek.
Aan zijn muziek liggen, net zo als bij  vele componisten uit Latijnsamerika, traditionele vormen ten grondslag, zoals bijvoorbeeld de Milonga, de Estilo of de Triste. Naast werken van zichzelf, speelt Gustavo Pazos ook muziek van andere componisten en uit de tradities van Argentinië zoals Abel Fleury en Dino Saluzzi.

Over zijn laatste cd Estación Eden schreef de Engelse tijdschrift Songlines het volgende:
“In his meditative exquistely refined guitar playing Gustavo Pazos Conde  investigates the roots of the country forms that  provide the deep, fertile soil from which much South American music has grown. (…) Pazos Conde takes full ownership of time-honoured genres like the vidalita and estilo and injects them with a positive energy. A beautifully produced, profoundly poetic album”.

Luister (Dutch classical music magazine):
“His compositions reminisce about the pampas and the gauchos and are supported by folk shapes and rhythms like the milonga, the estilo and the chamarrita. The music makes for great listening and can be categorised in the same tradition as set by the late great Atahualpa Yupanqui and Augustin Barrios Mangore, both composing guitarists as well. Enjoy Caraguatá late at night, preferably with a good glass of red, red reveries.” (***)

Het Parool (Dutch daily newspaper):
“Pazos sings and strums his guitar to reminisce about the pampas, the sparkling sea, the music of the gauchos and the colourful processions of Montevideo. He showcases his range of technical skills as well as his lyrical talent. Gustavo Pazos Conde is both a poet and a maestro”(****)

Heaven Magazine (Dutch music magazine):
“Sounding more classical than specifically Latin-American, Conde presents himself on Caraguatá as a profoundly sensitive guitarist who’s exploring the emotional depth in his music rather than merely seeking to display his fabulous technique.”(****)

Dagblad van het Noorden (Dutch daily newspaper):
“Pazos reinterprets the genres of ‘milonga’, ‘vidalita’ and ‘estilo’ by fusing them with elements from tango, jazz and classical music. His compositions, mainly his own, sound just as personal, intense and pure as the music he staged in his previous profession as a programmer. His virtuosity reigns in songs with a higher pace, like La Sarabanda.”(****)
