solo

Ricardo Gallo presents in this format compositions from his repertoire for other groups in solo-piano versions, and improvised pieces.

As pianist-composer, Gallo looks to minimize the disticntion between improvisation and composition. Or, in other words, to present in a distilled and direct way the creative process of his music that has been known mainly through his work with other groups and collaborations with other musicians.
