The multifaceted and vast repertoire of pianist and composer Miguel Bareilles focuses on his own piano compositions, which are characterized by their technical virtuosity, stylistic complexity and Latin American inspiration. In them, Bareilles resorts to the fusion between classical music, tango and different South American rhythms, including jazz, but without abandoning his classical-romantic essence.

 

Bareilles began his piano studies at the age of 7 with Evi Zwillinger de Giangrante, and later studied at the National Conservatory of Music "Carlos López Buchardo" in the city of Buenos Aires and the "Instituto Superior de Música Popular", Buenos Aires, Argentina. Since 1981 he has performed several times as a solo pianist in the theatre "Leopoldo Lugones" (Buenos Aires), where he premiered his first composition for piano "Pequeña Sonatina Bonaerense.

 

Bareilles has presented his piano compositions on the German stages: Elias Kuppelsaal, Otto Braun Saal, Concert Hall of the Musikhochschule Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Russisches Theater; from Argentina: Concert Hall of the National Fund for the Arts, Roberto García Morillo Hall; as well as of China: Yixing Theatre, Enshi Theatre, Huangshi Theatre, Beilun Theater, Ningbo Grand Theatre, Dezhou Theatre, among others.

 

Author of several symphonies, a concert for violin and orchestra, and various symphonic works, his compositions focus, however, on chamber music, among which we can highlight, "Grande Sonate Tanguistique", "Toccata Camila", "Folkkata" (concertante toccata), "Agua" (guitar and string quartet), "Secretos de Buenos Aires" (concert suite), "Casandriana", among others.
