The multi-faceted and wide repertoire of the pianist and composer Miguel Bareilles focusses on his own solo piano pieces, which are characterized by their virtuosity, stylistic complexity and Latin American inspiration. His compositions, which include also Chamber and Symphonic music, are based on a fusion of classical music, tango, different South American rhythms with jazz, although without abandoning their classic-romantic essence.


Bareilles started his piano lessons with Evi Zwillinger de Giangrante when he was 7 years old, studying later at the National Conservatory of Music “Carlos López Buchardo” and at the “Instituto Superior de Música Popular" of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Since 1981 he presented himself as piano soloist at the “Leopoldo Lugones” Theater of Buenos Aires, where he premièred his first composition “Pequeña Sonatina Bonaerense”.


Bareilles has presented his solo piano compositions at the stages of Germany: “Elias Kuppelsaal”, “Otto Braun Saal”, at the Concert hall of the School of music of the “Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster”, Russian Theater; of Argentina: Theater of the “Fondo Nacional de las Artes”, “Roberto García Morillo” concert hall; as well as in China: Yixing Theatre, Enshi Theatre, Huangshi Theatre, Beilun Theater, Ningbo Grand Theatre, Dezhou Theatre, among others.


He is author of some symphonies, a concert for violin and orchestra and various Symphonic Works. Most of his compositions are nevertheless chamber music like: “Grande Sonate Tanguistique”, “Toccata Camila”, “Folkkata” (toccata concertante), “Agua” (guitar and string quartet), “Secretos de Buenos Aires” (suite concertante), “Casandriana”, besides others.


In 2011 Bareilles received the “Chinaart award” of "Best new artist of the year” (Hangzhou, China).
