The flute/guitar duo, Fabio Mazzitelli and Omar Cyrulnik, will perform works by Remo Pignoni, Anibal Troilo, Homero Manzi, Horacio Salgan, Eduardo Timpanaro and Gustavo "Cuchi" Leguizamon. The program features Astor Piazzolla's La Historia del Tango.
The extensive repertoire for flute and guitar and the many points of common interest between Fabio and Omar — musicians with prestigious solo careers — led them to create a duo. As artists, they search for repertoire of Argentine and Latin American music and for a sound that is not only the sum of the two instruments, but rather a unique and personal experience that arises from a deep timbral and expressive collaborative work. As pedagogues, they share training spaces such as the Department of Musical Arts of the National University of the Arts and the summer courses of the Summer Music School; this adds depth and reach to the dissemination of their repertoire and unique sound.
In the short time since establishing their collaboration as the duo Mazzitelli-Cyrulnik, they have performed in the most important venues in Buenos Aires, in the Argentine festivals Sierra de la Ventana, Monte Hermoso and Gualeguaychú; and Italian festivals in Arezzo, Cesena and Forli. Mazzitelli and Cyrulnik are currently completing their first recorded album, edited by the DAMus label dedicated to Argentine music.
This event is part of the Latin American Music Celebration at The Ohio State University, Sept. 23 – Oct. 8.
