Palomas Doradas – Piano and Flute Duo
Inspirations from the Plains and Argentina
Tamar and Julieta each crossed the borders of their native countries and thereby enriched their musical education. The Argentinian composers they have chosen to bring to their audiences did the same – they studied in Europe and combined Western themes and styles with Indian songs, Gauchescos rhythms, and Tangos from “The big city”. The result is vibrant, exhilarating and exciting to the listener. Alberto Williams, Astor Piazzolla, Julián Aguirre, Carlos Guastavino, Angel Lasala, Alberto Ginastera are some of the composers the duo performs. The range of styles that Palomas Doradas play vary from the malambo, tango, chamamé and huella, and span over seven centuries of Argentinian music, starting from the late 19th century.
Inspirations from the Spanish Gardens
Four generations of passionate Spanish music in which the guitar can always be sensed – “hidden” in the sounds of the flute and piano. Light and Impressionistic chords inspired by life in Spain can be heard in music by Manuel de Falla, Isaac Albeniz, Joaquín Turina and others performed by Palomas Doradas.
About the flute and the piano
The piano, originating from Europe, was imported aboard ships in the 19th century to many homes in America. It became the most dominant and central instrument in Romantic music of the time. The flute is an instrument dating back to the stone age – the first flute was probably made from solid ivory of a mammoth. Its purpose among the Indians of America was to help story telling and to express feeling. Palomas Doradas in the coming together of these two instruments.
