The work "Canto por el Agua" is conceived as a cantata, although not in the formal sense of the sacred or secular cantatas, nor of the popular cantatas of the 20th century. It is rather a musical piece written for six solo voices (2 from the academic world and 4 from the popular world), piano, bandoneon, percussion and string octet, divided into four movements or arias, whose common theme is water.

The first part, entitled "Sovereign Water", is -as a plot- a conceptual approach, and -as a musical aesthetics- basically a zamba air.

The second part, "Guanahani and Guami´keni", is a dialectical game between mother earth (Guanahani) and the conqueror (Guami´keni). It is important to note that the soprano texts are written in Taino, an indigenous language of the Arawak family that was spoken in the Antilles around the time of the "Spanish Conquest" and is now extinct. Although there is no definite musical form, one can glimpse both romanticism and the dramatic and descriptive aesthetics of American golden cinema.

The third part, titled "El Diablo de la Semilla" (The Devil of the Seed), aims to be the voice of the peasant, thematizing the dispossession of the multinationals Barrick Gold and Monsanto. In its musical form, it could be defined as a zamba in simple compás, with harmonies that encompass both romanticism and Argentine fusion music.

Finally, "Los sobrevivientes," which is fundamentally a tango, attempts a futuristic themed setting, in which a group of people resist the onslaughts of a present without water. The last verses of this aria are a paraphrase of the text "De agua somos" by Eduardo Galeano.











Melancholie, includes the two piano preludes by Miguel Bareilles, winners of the II International Composition Competition "Rachmaninov" (2015-2016), and other works for piano, guitar and string ensemble.

"Melancolie" invites you on a nostalgic and visionary journey. The original compositions are the result of a contrasting combination of classical music, Latin American folklore and tango. The sound result not only confirms the hybrid and timeless character of the music, but also overcomes the separation that still exists between classical and popular music.










"Solo Piano" in a compendium of piano works, covering different compositional periods. It begins with the sonata "Tiergarten bei Nacht", which was the first work that Bareilles wrote on German soil. It also includes the work Sudestada (originally for piano and orchestra) here in a four-handed piano version.










"The European face of tango"

Miguel Bareilles conceived "Kunstango" for solo piano in the spring of 2008 in Berlin. His spirit tries to show an original thesis on the genesis of tango, with respect to baroque, classical, romantic and impressionist music as its harmonic and melodic basis. Kunstango has performed with great success in the main theatres of Germany, Argentina and China.
