The rock musician Fito Páez will offer next Monday, October 16 at 8 p.m. the concert “Gandini/Páez Desde el Alma”, which will take place at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires within the framework of the Gandini Focus, ten years after the composer’s death.
This is a concert by Páez with arrangements by Gerardo Gandini for an instrumental ensemble of strings and piano produced by the Teatro Colón, which will be a tour of the songs that make up the album “Moda y Pueblo” (2005), in addition to other collaborations between both musicians.
The album was recorded at the Circo Beat studio between March and April 2005 and proposes reversals in string nonet format of previous songs by Páez as well as others by Litto Nebbia, Charly García, Luis Alberto Spinetta, among others, where the orchestral arrangements They are from Gandini.
“Moda y Pueblo is the consequence of a material that we have been working on for many years with Gerardo, which started for the Música Esperanza concerts, continued with a recital by Horacio González at the National Library and exploded in the shows that we did in March at the ND/Ateneo,” Páez listed to the Télam agency in April 2005, when the musical material went on tour.
Furthermore, in 1996, Fito Páez performed at the Teatro Colón. There he sang and played the piano with an orchestra, the arrangements were by Gerardo Gandini and that began a creative relationship that almost a decade later materialized in a phonographic record.
Ten years after Gandini’s death, and 18 years after that exemplary album, “Moda y Pueblo” by Fito Páez will return to life on the stage of the Teatro Colón.
