In Spain, we must highlight his performances in the Auditorio Conde Duque in Madrid, the Ateneo in Madrid, the Palau de la Música in Valencia.
His first concert was entitled “dedos con duende” (passionate fingers) by the critics. When he was 16, he graduated as a guitar teacher. He has played his music all over the world, being his performances sponsored and organized by the the Foreign Affairs Ministry of Spain, the Spanish Consulate in Los Angeles, the Latin American Music Festival of Chicago, the Flamenco Arts Festival in the USA, the Santa Barbara Independent, The Chicago News, Siemens, 25 Uluslararasi Ankara Müzik Festival, the Madrid Town Hall, or Caja Madrid Foundation. His music has also been played in media such as the Spanish National Radio, Canal Plus in Spain, Es Radio, Cadena Cope, Cadena Ser, Onda Cero, the Bulgarian National Television, Radio Cameroon, The National Radio in Sofia, Canal Latino in Canada and Canal Univisión in the USA.
Pedro’s music has broken the conventions of guitar literature up to the moment, outstanding as an original composer able to mix flamenco, jazz, latin and classic music. After being awarded the Diplome Superieur d’Execution in the prestigious Ecole Normale in Paris, he decided, after discovering the rules, to break them to give way to an original creation.
The Copla Guitar Ensemble, composed of six guitarists, offers an attractive and original training. Indeed, the formula of the sextet contributes to bring a dynamism, a charm and a musical movement that only the guitar can create.
As the guitar is a solo instrument, because of its polyphonic importance, the guitar sextet offers a richer palette of sounds and colors. The repertoire covers a wide range from traditional music to classical music, from the 18th century to the present day: Spanish, South American and French and Mediterranean music are widely represented.
These musicians, first prize of the National Conservatories of Music, of the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris, having in common the teaching of the Master Alberto Ponce, especially during courses and academies in Europe, are teachers of guitar in the Conservatories of music of the PACA region.
The guitarists from the Copla ensemble have participated in various recordings such as Emilio Pujol's Complete Music, or in recital CDs. Given the success of their album "Falsetas", their second recording "Esquina" naturally supports the maturity of their original musical discourse. They are currently preparing their third CD ranging from Italian music to Spain.
The mix of these six different but complementary personalities contributes to the richness of this ensemble.
Guitarrists: Clarisse Sans, Martin Vieilly, Sylvain Cinquini, Jean Guillot, Hugo Brogniart, Arnaud Sans.
