Gustavo Cuchi Leguizamón El Cuchi bien temperado - Pablo Márquez - ECM New Series 2380


Pablo Márquez was born in St Pedro de Jujuy in 1967. He studied guitar with Jorge Martinez Zaráte and Eduardo Fernández, early music with Javier Hinojosa and conducting with Eric Sobzyck. After successes in major competitions including Radio France, Munich, Geneva and the Villa Lobos competition in Brazil, he embarked on a solo career which has led to encounters with remarkable musicians. As decisive influences on his subsequent development Márquez cites his meetings with bandoneonist Dino Saluzzi and the teachings of pianist György Sebök. Márquez is founder of the AlmaViva Ensemble which champions the Latin American chamber music repertoire. He collaborates regularly with new music ensembles including Ensemble InterContemporain, and performs compositions from renaissance times to the present day. He has worked closely with composers including Luciano Berio, György Kurtág and Mauricio Kagel. 

Pablo Márquez’s previous album for ECM New Series was Seis libros del Delphín, with music of Luys de Narváez. Further recordings are in preparation.
