Simone Rubino and Eduardo Egüez come back together to give life to a new adventure that brings together two worlds united by counterpoint’s technique, which Bach and Piazzolla were two masters, three centuries apart. Simone Rubino with his solar Italianism and Eduardo Egüez, a native like Piazzolla of Buenos Aires, offer us a bouquet of marvellous pieces.
It must have been around the year 2007, when my eldest daughter was telling me about the musical prowess of a classmate of hers from middle school, who was not only prodigious as a percussionist but also composed concertos for piano and orchestra (playing the piano part himself) and was able to sing by heart any character of any Italian opera
They were about 12 years old… This is how the young Simone Rubino looked musically at an early age. His mother said that when he was very young, there was no wall in the house that did’t have marks from percussion sticks. During that time it was frequent to find him in the RAI orchestra of Turin playing timpani, marimba or vibraphone in some symphonic concert, or replacing the conductor, and those concerts have remained engraved in my memory.
