Duo Zisman - Tavolaro

 violin y guitarra

 

La colaboración musical de ambos artistas comenzó en 1973 en Buenos Aires, su ciudad natal, con el promisorio augurio de un concierto de música de cámara en el Auditorio Bernasconi de Villa del Parque, integrando un cuarteto de solistas con Mario Videla en clavicémbalo  y Enzo Gieco en flauta traversa, con el cual fuera ejecutado, entre otras obras, un arreglo notablemente ecléctico de un Tango de Astor Piazzolla, “Baires 72”.  Lo notable de dicho evento es que por ese entonces los Tangos de Piazzolla no se tocaban en conciertos clásicos (con excepción de sus obras sinfónicas).

A partir de ese primer encuentro se sucedieron una serie de conciertos en dúo. En 1976 Daniel Zisman partió hacia Europa con el objeto de continuar estudios académicos, ocasionando una sutil pausa de 36 años. Efectivamente, el Dúo trascendió el Tiempo, pues la pausa no fue óbice para detener el proyecto que continuó diversificándose no solo en conciertos como Dúo, sino también como Cuarteto (que incluye a la cantante  Aida Albert); una puesta en escena de “María de Buenos Aires”; una versión de Cámara de “Mujeres Argentinas”, variados Cds, el estreno de la Opereta Radiofónica “Tangos Paralelos”, etc.

También trascendió el espacio…. Dado que los Tavolaro’s moran en la campiña romana, y los Zisman’s están del otro lado de la cadena alpina, en Suiza. en variadas ocasiones conectados tenuemente a través de Skype y coordinados por la precisa expertise de Fernando Tavolaro, ingeniero en jefe de sonido, los temas musicales de esta singular alianza compositiva a ultranza, han recorrido el éter y los cables de medio continente europeo ida y vuelta…  Y ahora acaban de aterrizar en la Argentina integrando el presente CD. Por lo cual queda demostrado que Tavolaro-Zisman han trascendido definitivamente Tiempo y Espacio...claro, relativamente hablando... y en la dimensión desconocida.
