Pablo Ziegler is the
most important artist of the Tango Nuevo and Astor Piazolla's legitimate
successor. He already played in several jazz ensembles when he was only
14 years old. In his younger days he composed for musicals, TV and movies
and founded his first Trio, which combined classical music with jazz.
Between 1978 and 1989 he worked continously with Astor Piazolla and
contributed substantially to his enormous success.
When Piazolla became seriuosly ill, Pablo Ziegler formed the Quintett
for New Tango, which was celebrated by the press and the audience. Recordings
and concerts followed, together with (among others) Milva, Gary Burton
and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London. He received awards for
his achievements as composer in New Orleans, New York and Buenos Aires.
Pablo Ziegler was on tour on the american continent, Europe and Asia.
Quique Sinesi's music creates from the rich inheritance of the
southamerican continent, from the traditional rhythmic Candombés
of the argentinian inhabitants, from the melodic elements of Tango,
the MIlonga and the music of the european immigrants. The dances are
as well as the traditional folk rhythms interpreted with new concepts,
Jazz on the other hand joins together with these elements, and the result
is an immense lively and sparkling symbiosis.
Quique began his musical career as the guitarist of the Bandonionist
Dino Saluzzi and as member of the new Tango Duo Quartet with Pablo Ziegler
(Ex-pianist of the Astor Piazolla Quintet). Famous Jazz-stars like Jim
Hall were impressed of the technic he plays, the expression and the
compositions of this exceptional guitarist. Quique plays (among manys)
for example together with Charlie Mariano, Markus Stockhausen, Erling
Kroner and Marcelo Moguilevsky.
He was invited by Jim Hall to be guestmusician at the presentation of
the Jazzpar Prize (themost important prize in the Jazz) in Kopenhagen.
Since this time he could show his abbilities with his own compositions
on several international concerts and festivals and could proove his
emotional deepness and the perfectly control of his instrument.
Walter Castro started studying bandoneon with professor Domingo
Mattio, later he continued with professors Julio Pane and Nestor Marconi.
In 1985 he created The Sexteto Menor later known as "Sexteto Sur".
At the beginning of 1990 he played in Osvaldo Pugliese´s Orchestra
and participated in the Orchestra of Horacio Salgan in a Show called
"Images" in the Plaza Center (Complejo La Plaza). He started
extensive touring through the interior of Argentina and abroad. In 1993
Walter wins the contest for Bandoneon Professor and Group practices
assistant at the famous "Popular Music School of Avellaneda".
He played in music shows with Atilio Stampone, Osvaldo Berlingieri,
Virginia Luque, Raúl Lavié, etc. In 1995 he participates
in the quintet for singer Adriana Varela. In the same year he joins
"Pablo Ziegler´s Quintet for New Tango".
Same year he forms part of the quintet "5/4" (cinco cuartos)
and with this group records a CD with singers from Brazil. In 1998 he
records with Pablo Ziegler and The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra a CD called
"Tango Romance" with BMG/RCA VICTOR New York. In 1999 he records
another CD called "Pablo Ziegler Quintet for New Tango" for
the same record label. He also has made several recordings with multiple
performers and in October of the same year Melopea edited a CD of the
instrumental group formed in 1996 with three musicians. This group is
called "Presencia Tanguera" with members Angel Bonura, Hernán
Posseti and Germán Martinez. Walter Castro playes a dynamic and
vivid bandoneon style, as well as he gives expression of sorrow and
melancholy which Tango is so well-known for.
