Fortunato Salvador García Piquer (piano, Hispaania)


Helilooja OÜ


On July 13, the promising young Spanish pianist Fortunato Salvador García Piquer will perform a solo concert at the Arvo Pärt Center, who has managed to cooperate with several outstanding orchestras and internationally recognized performers and successfully participate in various international competitions, including the IV Tallinn International Piano Competition (2021), the IX International M. K. Čiurlionis Piano and Organ Competition (2023), Gabriel Teruel Piano Competition (2022) and Laine Mets Piano Competition (2021). Last year, García Piquer won a prize at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theater soloist competition, which gave him the opportunity to perform as a soloist in front of the EMTA symphony orchestra. He is also the principal pianist of the Jove Orquestra de la Generalitat Valenciana (JOGV), participating in concerts throughout Spain. García Piquer graduated with honors from the Salvador Segui Conservatory in Castelló and is getting his master’s degree at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theater with Mihkel Poll and Prof. Ivari Ilja. He has also improved his skills in the master classes of outstanding pianists Eteri Andjaparidze, Alexander Kobrin, Toms Ostrovskis, Hando Nahkur, Angela Hewitt and Hui-Ying and Erik T. Tawaststjerna.

Fortunato Salvador García Piquer’s solo evening program leads to romantic-lyrical paths – Granados’ charming waltzes are followed by Debussy’s beloved “Arabesques”, which are among the examples of the composer’s early impressionism and reflect the interest of the then Art Nouveau style in nature’s motifs and shapes in the supple music. The sad ballad L. 70, completed around the same time, is in a mental dialogue with them. Mozart’s piano sonata hides many strengths – a wide range of emotions, orchestral effects and virtuoso piano handling give the performer plenty of opportunities for self-expression. However, Chopin’s polonaise-fantasia, which ends the concert, skilfully combines elements of Polish festive folk dance with nocturnal dreamlike melancholy.

Programme: Enrique Granados, Claude Debussy, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Fryderyk Chopin
