CARLOS

RESTREPO

Carlos Restrepo is a musician who thinks in the finest nuances of sound and lets a colorful kaleidoscope of colors and impressions sound like a painterly sound.
He is a musician who can represent tonal structures in a vivid and highly differentiated manner, and it is not surprising that the music of Johann Sebastian Bach is particularly close to his heart. Transcriptions for guitar of Bach’s most important solo works are an integral part of Carlos Restrepo’s core repertoire and he keeps discovering new facets in these works and hidden things become visible.
This ability and the urge to discover what is hidden and complex in Bach’s music and to present it tonally in complex polyphonic forms is only very rarely encountered in musicians of his generation.
It was an absolute enrichment for our cultural association and an inspiring experience to have presented this fantastic musician at our concerts.
