The duo Aguirre-Rocco consists of the pianist and composer Pablo Aguirre and the flutist Luis Rocco. Both obtained great acceptance in Argentina.
Their acting in unison of the two musicians create a symbiosis of composition and interpretation. Aguirre's emotionality complements with the richness of shades in Rocco's playing.
Frequently the flute, as the melody leading instrument, gives the interpretation an element of airiness, while the stimuli come from the piano.
The duo's repertoire consists exclusively of compositions by Pablo Aguirre.
His doing embraces as well general public music as orchestral and chamber music compositions. He was honored with notable awards, like the "Estímulo a la Creación" of the Fondo Nacional de las Artes (2008, 2004 und 1997) and the and the Belgrano University Prize in the "Folk & Fusion" category (1987).
His style of composition includes classical structures and concepts of harmony of the 20th century that are united with the character of tango and folklore.
He founded the duo Aguirre-Rocco with Pablo Aguirre in 2002. As a flutist he played with several symphonic orchestras in Argentina and, since 1985, he is a member of the Colón Opera House Philarmonic Orchestra in Buenos Aires.
He teaches at the Buenos Aires City Conservatorium and at his alma mater, the Music Institute of the Litoral University.
This productions is a pure stereo recording without multitrack and multi-microphone techniques.
This way phase errors and mixing losses are avoided. In order to obtain a naturally genuine sound, no signalprocessors altering frequencies or dynamics were used.
The first album of the Duo Aguirre-Rocco released in Europe, combines two in the Argentinian culture engrained styles of music - the european classical music and the tango.
Its musical themes and rhythmic elements are still preserved but integrated in traditional chamber music.
The name-giving Tango-Sonata (orig.: Sonata Tanguera) was developed in 2001, in a time of political crisis in Argentinia and during a complete changeover in the life of the composer Pablo Aguirre.
In searching for a new musical identity, an enrichment for the modern chamber music and a real new form of the classical sonata came into being.
The structure of the sonata form is the basis for the Tango-Sonata. The fragments of the sonata form are seperated to create the new framework for the single movements. The Tango-Sonata is also influenced by Astor Piazolla's "Tango Nuevo" but finds its special musical shape.
