Great Southern Nights: Victor Martinez Parada
Sun 3 April at 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$25
A performance by Victor Martinez Parada is not to be missed. He is a musician’s musician who plays from the heart.
Chilean-born, Victor Martinez Parada is recognised as one of the world’s finest classical Latin-American avant-garde solo guitarists. Classically trained, over the course of his career he has developed an innovative style which generates a world of sound by interpreting music from the classics, folk, jazz and pop using multiple techniques. By listening to his fantasies on pop tunes such as Stevie Wonder’s You Are The Sunshine Of My Life, Daniel Alomia Roble’s El Condor Pasa, Laura Branigan’s Self-Control, Harold Arlen’s Somewhere Over The Rainbow and the Lennon-McCartney classic, Yesterday, you will understand not only how music has shaped him but also how he has shaped music. His music is more than music. He tells a story with his music, building image upon image. He closes his eyes and delves deep into the music. He can only play music that touches his heart. Audiences join him on his journey, cherishing his performances which reflect a professional music career spanning more than 50 years.
An accomplished performer, composer and teacher, he has an extensive list of music in his repertoire, ranging from classical to modern to South American folk to avant-garde. He has composed pieces for solo guitar, ensembles including duos, trios, quartets, sextets and also for guitar & ensemble and guitar quartet & symphony orchestra.
After nurturing the musical careers of his family and touring the world for many years with his sons Andro and Dauno Martinez as the guitar trio, Martinez Akustica, Victor Martinez Parada has returned to his roots and is taking his unique talent back on the road as a soloist.
