Guitar - Roger Tristao Adao

Variations on a theme by Mozart and other pieces for classical guitar

The concert will feature music by Mozart, Fernando Sor, Isaac Albeniz, Enrique Granados and Francisco Tarrega. In the first part of the concert, Roger Tristao Adao will present his new CD with music by the Spaniard Fernando Sor. Works from the Mozart era, such as the Mozart Variations and the Grand Solo, will form the focus of this half of the concert. The second half will feature Spanish dances from the 19th and early centuries by Francisco Tarrega, Isaac Albeniz and Enrique Granados. These originally improvised dances found their way into classical music through the arrangement of the compositions. They are through-composed masterpieces that have lost none of the rhythmic power and original magic of Spanish folk music. The tension of this contrasting program ranges from delicate melancholy to fiery rhythms. The audience is guided through the program by brief explanations.

Roger Tristao Adao, previously known by his birth name Roger Zimmermann.
He studied classical guitar in Berlin and Düsseldorf and has lived as a freelance guitarist since graduating.
In 1997, he was offered a teaching position at the Leipzig University of Music, which he held until 2003, before devoting himself increasingly to performing again.
In 2006 alone, concert tours took him to India, Chile, Peru, Bolivia and Brazil.
After releasing three solo CDs (1994, 96 and 99) with the record label FONO, he founded his own record label TIRANDO in 2001, which primarily produces guitar music. The first production of this label with the Spanish singer Marina Bollain, on which the song collection of Federico Garcia Lorca can be heard, was CD of the week on the classical music radio station MDR-Kultur. In 2002, two further CDs were released, the first featuring the 12 Spanish dances by Enrique Granados, which he arranged for guitar and flute together with the flautist Hans-Peter Drobisch, and the other featuring songs and solo pieces by Fernando Sor.
This was followed in summer 2003 by another recording with music by Leo Brouwer for one, two and four guitars. In summer 2005 the meanwhile
8th CD with music by Claude Debussy. In the fall of 2005, he was also a guest musician on a CD production by singer Angelika Campos de Melo.
In 2006 he produced a CD with the Consensus String Quartet and recorded a CD of European Christmas carols with contralto Annette Reinhard.
To date, he has released 11 CDs himself, but also produces CDs for other musicians.
Since 1999, he has organized an annual guitar festival in August in the artists' village of Friedrichsrode (north-west Thuringia), where he lives. In 2007, he was entrusted with the organization of an annual guitar festival in Cuxhaven.
