The recital by the musician from Madrid takes place on Tuesday [2nd] at 7:30 p.m. in the Chamber Hall.


The Auditorio de Tenerife offers next Tuesday [2nd], at 7:30 p.m. in the Chamber Hall, a concert by the pianist from Madrid, Luis Fernando Pérez, who will perform Isaac Albéniz's Iberia suite. Tickets are available at a single price of €15, as well as special discounts for the audience under 30 years of age, students, unemployed and large families.

Iberia is a masterpiece by the Spanish musician Isaac Albéniz, considered a bravura piece of piano literature. It is formed by a cycle of twelve impressions for piano of great unity where all the pieces, except the first Evocation and Lavapiés, allude to southern Spain, Andalusia, despite not having a descriptive intention. These twelve impressions were composed between 1905 and 1908 and premièred in Paris in the last year of his life.

The mastery of piano dominated the life and work of the Catalan musician who, at a very early age, gave his first performance in Barcelona aged just four. As a composer, although he initially seemed to triumph in the lyrical field, none of his entire vocal or symphonic work comes close to the success of his repertoire for piano (normally gathered in collections). Among all of them, Iberia reveals a richness of composition that goes beyond pure mastery. Notable innovations in piano technique stand out but also a broad colour scheme, with a complex and refined treatment of harmony, and an endless source of inspiration that showed a new way of conceiving Spanish folklore.

Divided into four books, each of its pieces is meticulously created despite their rhapsodic feel and naturally shaped to its formal framework. A cycle of great unity that is presented in concert format as a homage to the centenary of Alicia de Larrocha’s birth by the pianist Luis Fernando Pérez. He is one of the greatest experts in the Spanish repertoire at present, winner of the Enrique Granados Award of Barcelona (Alicia de Larrocha Award) and the Albéniz Medal.

Praised for his mastery, his colourful playing and his extraordinary and rare capacity to communicate directly with his audience, according to Le Monde, Pérez is considered one of the most exceptional performers of his generation and the "Renaissance of Spanish piano". Throughout his career, he has been conducted by José Ramón Encinar, Antoni Ros Marbá, Wilson Hernanto and Kazuki Yamada. He has collaborated with orchestras such as the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, the Galicia Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestra of the Spanish radio RTVE, the Ensemble Orchestral of Paris, the Kanazawa Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestras Franz Liszt of Budapest and Mannheim.

His recordings released by the label Mirare devoted to Chopin, Soler, Granados and Falla (Diapason d'Or and Shock of the Year by the magazine Clásica) have led French critics to single him out as a prominent figure of the Spanish musical renaissance. His last album project for the Mirare label was fully devoted to Rachmaninov.
