In the project “La vida en el agua” (Life in Water), the pianist and composer from the Canary Islands performs together with the renowned jazz and flamenco musician from Madrid


The Auditorio de Tenerife offers this Friday (27 May), at 7.30 p.m., at the Chamber Hall the concert La vida en el agua (Life in Water). This project is presented jointly by the pianist and composer from the Canary Islands Alexis Alonso and the renowned flautist and saxophonist Jorge Pardo, specialising in jazz and flamenco, from Madrid.

This jazz work is signed by the two musicians. The pieces written by Alonso are interpreted at the piano by himself and the woodwind instruments that Pardo plays. It is an intimate show as a duo that exudes sensibility, strength and emotion from the first note. The seed of this partnership lies in the collaboration of Jorge Pardo in one of the songs of the latest piano solo project of Alexis Alonso, Love in Floating Bridges.

One of the most significant figures in global jazz and flamenco, this musician from Madrid has shared the stage with everyone: from Camarón to Gil Goldstein. In 2013, he received the award for Best European Jazz Musician at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, from the prestigious French Jazz Academy. In 2015, Jorge Pardo was awarded the "National Award for Current Music" awarded by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Culture.

With a career in the world of composition for soundtracks, Alexis Alonso surprised everyone in 2014 with the release of his first solo piano album, El Paisaje (The Landscape), which was followed by The Birth of Time (2016), being released in London. In 2018 he released his first album In with his own Alexis Alonso Quartet (followed by Jamboree Live 19 and Out (2020) with the collaboration of three superstars in global jazz, Seamus Blake, Ralph Alessi and Pedrito Martínez. With Love in Floating Bridges (2021) and this duo project with Jorge Pardo, Alexis Alonso returns to a more intimate environment, alongside the work with his quartet.
