Edison Quintana, Piano
Maestro Quintana is acknowledged as the most versatile and consummate pianist currently performing in concert halls in Mexico. Whether in jazz stylings, works for piano and orchestra or Latin-American folk music, he embraces all the possibilities his instrument offers to him and makes of the printed page a voice full of colors, intensities and contrasts.
This recital of solo piano music is dedicated to Mexican composers from 1880 to 1980. While the composers will not be familiar names, the music crosses all international boundaries. We hear the music of Chopin, Liszt, Aaron Copland and Prokofiev captured in the music of Mario Ruiz Armengol, JOSÉ PABLO MONCAYO and MANUEL DE ELÍAS.
