Virtuoso multi-instrumentalista, Menéndez aborda el Piano, la Guitarra, la Flauta Traversa, el Saxo Soprano y el Bandoneón con asombrosa habilidad.

  PEDRO MENENDEZ is a brilliant composer and multi-instrumentalist.

Known as a pioneering of the Avant Garde fusion sytle in Argentina, Menendez´s music is a personal mangnificent blend of Latin American folk rythms -tango, chacarera, candombe, bossa nova-, jazz and  contemporary classical elements.

As a bold creator, Menendez proposes a different South American concept. Melodies are unique, lyric and complex. Pieces are rich on harmonic modulations and elaborated counterpoints. Traditional local rythms are reinterpreted on prolific polirythms variations, irregular meters and a varied elaborated instrumentation.

As a virtuous multi-instrumentalist, Menendez changes from the Piano to the Guitar, Flute, Soprano Sax or Bandoneon with surprising ability.

"COLECCIONISMO-ANTHOLOGY"is a selected compilation that brings together some of the best pieces of Menendez´s vast discography and is part of the repertoire that the Argentinian musician has been performing recently in Argentina, Brazil, US and Canada.

 

“His music is a whirlwind of the influences ranging fromBrazilian bossa nova, contemporary classical, tango, Argentinian folk, and American jazz.

The music is like a gentle breeze on an otherwise warm still night in a
warm country very much like Argentina.

Its rhythms are graceful. It sways more than it swings. Menendez
tends to remain understated in making his point...

As is the rest of the album, it is simple and wise, graceful and heartfelt.” (Jazzreview.com by John Doll)
