Horacio Lavandera

Horacio Lavandera has been highly praised by the international press:

“In the same way that Wynton Marsalis represents Jazz in the U.S., Lavandera represents classical music in Argentina”. Keith Widyolar, New York Latin Culture Magazine.

“ECM - CD "Imagenes" one of the best 20 albums of the year 2015”. Ted Gioia, New York Times

“Lavandera offered a stupendous demonstration of rhythmic strength and subtlety, and play of color across the surface and through the depth of the music.” Richard Dyer, Boston Globe.

“Horacio Lavandera brings Schubert to life”. “What followed was the absolute highlight of the evening: audibly and visibly at the same time, Horacio Lavandera was able to immerse himself in the musical ideas of Franz Schubert and to bring to life the states of mind in the three Impromptus without any resistance. The argentine symbolically took the hand and lead Schubert’s worlds of sound” – Bianca Schumann, Klassik begeistert, Vienna/Austria.

“Golden hands of a young prodigy” – Marie-Aude Roux, Le Monde, Paris/France.

“Horacio Lavandera proved to have extraordinary virtuoso skills, plus a first-class interpretive sense. His performance was high profile and received with unanimous success” – Tomás Marco, El Mundo, Madrid/Spain.

“As before, Lavanderas’ many pedal art pieces were astonishing and exhilarating, his enormous virtuosity reminiscent of Maurizio Pollini’s (and he was at least as virtuoso as the beloved Vladimir Horowitz).” Thomás Ziegner. Schwäbisches Tagblatt.
