February 19, 2022 – Spanish pianist Martín García García just landed in Madrid after a few crazy months for his success in Chopin Competition. He will be at home with his family for a couple of weeks taking advantage of his debut with Spanish National Orchestra.

When Martín was preparing himself for Chopin Competition, a lot of people noticed that he warmed his fingers and his mind with Johann Sebastian Bach. This is not Martín’s extravagance, in fact, Fryderyck Chopin was a profound connoisseur of Bach’s work. To such an extent that, during the winter he spent in Mallorca, he took with him a copy of The Well-Tempered Clavier. The connections between Bach and Chopin are evident -especially by the influence of his silesian master Jósef Ksawery Elsner-, and Martín’s interpretation of the Polish genius is grounded in this very important aspect of his music. That’s why he always wants to reach Chopin through the timeless Bach.

On those days, Martín offered a concert at his family home in Madrid to his closests, who have had the luck to transcend with his performances and to dance in their minds with this Waltzes. What could be better than this?
