Arte en Parte

go back

Founded in 1995 by Ángela Ferreiro and Iago Reigosa, with the aim of playing music originally written for guitar duo in the 19th century, Arte en pArte is focused mainly in the Spanish repertoire.

For their performances they use two 19th. Century guitars made by Bernhart Kresse (Köln) after an original by Panormo (1840).

In 1998 they win the second prize in the "VII International Contest Simone Salmaso" (Italy), and are awarded again in the "Ghitaralia 98" contest (Poland). In 2000 they are the only Spanish group selected to take part in the Fringe of the "XXIII Festival Internacional de Música Antigua de Barcelona".

In 2001 they are invited by the foundation Stiftung Kloster Michaelstein (germany) to take part in the "Symposium about guitar and citern" where they give a lecture-recital about the Spanish guitar ca. 1800, included in the book "Guitarre und Zister. Bauweise, Spieltechnik und Geschichte bis 1800" published in 2004 by this foundation.

Arte en pArte have performed in important Spanish cities: Madrid (Fundación Juan March), Barcelona or Valencia among others, and have participated in international festivals as "Guitarrisimo" (Instituto Cervantes Munich), "Festival Internacional de Guitarra de Ponferrada", "Música na Compañía" (Universidade de Santiago de Compostela), "Semana do Corpus" (Lugo), "Xeración 2000+2" (Vigo), etc

In 2007 they were on tour through Brasil featuring performances in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Brasilia, Salvador de Bahía and Porto Alegre, performing in "Cecilia Meireles" concert hall of Rio de Janeiro and giving masterclasses in São Paulo.

In March 2008 they are invited by Instituto Cultural Peruano Norteamericano and participate in the "XIX Festival Internacional de Guitarra" in Lima where they give a concert and a Master Class.

The Italian label Nuova Era published in 2003 their first Cd dedicated to the music for two guitars written by the Spanish composer Fernando Sor (1778-1839). This recording has reached big success in the reviews.

"... The duo Arte en pArte offers a superb recital Sor in Nuova Era ... a level of synchronization very difficult to achive which demonstrates to what extent the guitar duo is unique..., ...they are not only accomplices in the mechanism of those sixteen perfectly harmonised fingers but also in the spirit, in the idea of a piece of music which is expressive and fluent in its communication".

(Javier Suárez-Pajares, Diverdi)
