Next Tuesday, the renowned musician and composer will perform the programme entitled "Five Centuries of Spanish Keyboard Music" ("Cinco siglos de música española para teclado")


Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the councelor Enrique Arriaga. Next Tuesday [19th] at 7:30 p.m the Auditorium welcomes a concert by pianist Gustavo Díaz-Jerez. The program, entitled "Five Centuries of Spanish Keyboard Music", includes the world première of the piece "Melussyne", which was written by this renowned Canarian musician and composer.

This recital is a journey through five centuries of keyboard music composed in Spain from the mid-16th century, with Antonio de Cabeçon, to the present day. From the 17th century, the music of Francisco Correa de Arauxo will be heard, and from the 18th century, that of Antonio Soler. The 19th century will bring the Canarian songs of Teobaldo Power.

From the 20th century, part of "La Iberia", by Isaac Albéniz, has been selected, and to represent the 21st century there will be compositions by Díaz-Jerez himself, such as some of his Metaludes for piano and a world première: Melussyne. The audience will be able to see and appreciate the musical transformation from composition for the organ and harpsichord to the piano of today. “A true musical journey through time”, in the words of Díaz-Jerez himself.

Gustavo Díaz-Jerez is one of the greatest exponents of musical interpretation and creation in Spain. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, Allice Tully Hall, the Musikverein, the Concertgebouw, etc. In addition, as a soloist he has been conducted by Skrowaczevski, Fischer, Bamert, Lü Jia, Herbig, Encinar and Víctor Pablo with most of the main Spanish orchestras and with foreign groups. He is currently a professor at Musikene (Basque Country), holds a PhD in musical arts (Manhattan School of Music), and is a Permanent Academician at the San Miguel Arcángel Royal Canarian Academy of Fine Arts.
