Un Corazón al Fin del Mundo
Album dedicated to the Chilean idiosyncrasy, which presents a musical journey from its Spanish origins to the present day. It was created in response to the desire to leave a record for posterity, conceived by the pianist Hugo Llanos. It was recorded at the Auditorio del Complejo Andrónico Luksic in Santiago de Chile.
Many times demanded by the audience, today it is turned from a dream to a reality.
The work of a long time becomes in a physical result that will remain in the memories of each one of you.
The unique mixture between classical and folk music presents a rarely shown extraordinary feature, and this specific case reminds us of the cultural importance that this music has for the people of the end of the world, Chile. It also reveals how versatile an instrument of the classical world, the piano, can be, allowing it to be fully exploited for its lucidity, beauty and finesse.
It will be the next production of Hugo Llanos that will make you travel through time, to Chile of the 19th century. Composers such as Guillaume Deichert, Santiago Heitz and Fréderic Guzmán will be the focus of this album, who show their important musical perspective. Thanks to the european education they received, they managed to combine the characteristic Chilean music with the European romantic music tradition.
Since there are no recordings of this music, this record was conceived thanks to Hugo's historical and musical research and the desire to premiere the works, leaving the world a phonographic record of this part of Chile's history. And in this case, given that the artist is of Chilean origin, this gives greater importance to the realization of this production.
