Description

Recognizable from the very first notes, Roberto Aussel seduces through his warm sound and his resolute playing. He is at home in Baroque music as well as in contemporary and South American repertoire. Roberto Aussel was born in Buenos Aires where he gave his first recital at the age of thirteen. His solid foundation under the instruction of Maestro Jorge Martinez Zarate has opened the door to numerous important international competitions in which he has played brilliantly, winning first prizes. Impressed by Roberto Aussel’s musical personality, his fellow countryman, Astor Piazzolla, composed five gorgeous tangos for him — original for the guitar. These pieces have toured the world under his talented fingers. Roberto Aussel teaches at the Musikhochschule in Köln, Germany. Since 1983, he has had a guitar music collection at Henry Lemoine in Paris.

French guitarist and composer Francis Kleynjans, born in 1951, student of Alexandre Lagoya and Alirio Diaz, is the author of numerous pieces for guitar including etudes, waltzes, preludes, chamber music, music for films, as well as a concerto for guitar and string orchestra premiered in April 1984.
A l'aube du dernier jour (At dawn of the last day) is a work dedicated to Roberto Aussel which won the prize of the 22nd international composition competition of Radio France in 1980. Conceived in two parts, the piece describes, in dramatic fashion, the last moments of a man condemned to death.
Attente (Waiting) is a brief prelude expressive of the anguish of the man, alone in his cell, waiting to the rhythm of an obsessive tick-tock.
The second movement, L'aube (Dawn), is built on a four-note ostinato, sometimes heavy, sometimes neutral, which leads the man toward his fate in a long and painful march. Three brief tonal passages intervene to lighten the tense atmosphere dominating the work : the condemned man is lost in the realm of memories … A discorderly fugue, in which the ostinato reappears, disformed, suddenly brings him back to reality : the pace is more and more precipitated, as are the heart beats, until a sharp dry crack gives way to silence.
