In the square of the church of San Paolo, Alessandro Deiana performs the romances of the Slovakian musician Johann Kaspar Mertz with an original Viennese classical guitar of 1850. The second part of the concert is dedicated to Argentine folk music and in particular to the great Atahualpa Yupanqui, leader of the movement of the Nueva Canción , to which, in closing, the Suite of Recuerdo by José Luis Merlin is connected.
The concert program consists of two distinct but not discontinuous parts. In the first part, on an original Viennese school instrument datable around 1850, Alessandro Deiana will perform music by Johann Kaspar Mertz, a composer born in Bratislava and active in Vienna between 1840 and his death. They are mostly romances (songs without words) of his own creation, inspired by Slovak and Hungarian music. The second part is dedicated to the figure of Atahualpa Yupanqui, aka Oscar Chavero Aramburo, an Argentine composer and guitarist. Considered the greatest interpreter of Argentine folk music, and a true leader of the Nueva Canción movement, he was persecuted at home and forced into exile in Paris. The Suite of Recuerdo by José Luis Merlin is a tribute to Atahualpa and touches, in its movements, the main musical forms used by Yupanqui.
