    Bernardo Rambeaud, guitar.

    The Argentine guitarist Bernardo Rambeaud, currently living in Barcelona, ??holds a Master's Degree in Advanced Musical Interpretation Studies with maestro Àlex Garrobé at ESMUC (Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya). He graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the UNLP and the Postgraduate Specialization in Instrumentation by the teacher Eduardo Isaac at the Luis Gianneo Conservatory in the city of Mar del Plata.
    Throughout his musical life he participates in numerous courses and seminars with great masters such as Pablo Márquez, Eduardo Fernández, Víctor Villandangos and the conductor Jordi Mora. He also participates in international festivals such as the Campos do Jordao Winter Festival (Brazil), the Koblenz International Guitar Festival (Germany) and the Guitarras del Mundo Festival (Argentina).
    As a soloist and with various chamber groups, he performs in different theaters and theaters in Argentina and Spain. He performs at the Festival Grec 2016 as guest soloist of the Municipal Band of Barcelona directed by Salvador Brotons. He is currently part of the Cantos del Aire project together with the soprano Laura Martínez Boj.
    In this concert program, the Argentine guitarist Bernardo Rambeaud takes us to the Parisian and Viennese salons of the 19th century with music by Fernando Sor (1778-1839) and Franz Schubert (1797-1828). During the first half of the nineteenth century the guitar wins the hearts of the public and begins to speak of the "Guitaromanie". The tradition of listening to music in a private and intimate setting continues at the dawn of the 20th century. In this sense, the program continues with works by the Catalan composer Enrique Granados. Part of his piano music, full of colors and evocative perfumes of the Iberian Peninsula, was transcribed by his friend and guitarist Miguel Llobet. Both musicians lived in Paris and became friends with the most influential composers of the time, such as Debussy, Ravel, Fauré, among others. To end the program, Bernardo Rambeaud performs one of Carlos Guastavino's three guitar sonatas. This composer, perhaps the greatest representative of Argentine romantic nationalism, unites the nineteenth-century musical and pianistic center-European tradition with the rhythms and melodies typical of Argentine folklore, creating a unique and personal language that transcends the borders of his land and his weather.
