Oct 3: Eduardo Frías Performs Grundman at Carnegie Hall

September 26, 2017

October 3rd, pianist Eduardo Frías will perform the complete works of Spanish composer Jorge Grundman at Carnegie Hall. This concert follows the release of his recording of the works of Grundman, Little Great Stories, on Sony Classical.

Grundman (b. 1961) writes in an expressive neo-tonal style that has been compared to eminent Catalan composer Frederic Mompou and film composer John Barry. He has won numerous awards for his composition and his collaborations with the Brodsky Quartet are Spanish Independent Music Award-winning. The celestial opening section of his fantasie, “Who Remembers Beauty When Sadness Knocks at Your Door?”, which Frías performs below, whispers a suggestion of early 20th century French composers, such as Satie or Debussy.

Though young, Frías has toured throughout Europe, the Americas, and Africa. His appearances include Hochschule der Künste in Bern (Switzerland), SGAE Madrid and Barcelona Auditoriums, as well as the Juan March Foundation and Auditorio Nacional (Madrid), and he has collaborated with Instituto Cervantes and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Spain in the Cultural Centers of Spain in Bata and Malabo (Equatorial Guinea).
