Jorge Villavicencio Grossmann - composer, violinist, conductor

"The music of Jorge Villavicencio Grossmann has been described as 'evocative and lyrical', capable of 'drawing the audience into a wonderful sound world.' An artist of broad interests ranging from philosophy to literature, film, and visual arts, his works often seek to find parallels between music and the other arts. As a citizen of the world and a product of the fusion of diverse cultures, he expresses in his works an intrinsic cosmopolitanism, which reflects a fervent fascination for the musical tradition of Central Europe, particularly the Second Vienesse School, as well as the influence of the rich vernacular traditions of the countries where he has lived: Andean music, whose traditional and millenary instruments have been used in works such as Whistling Vessels (which combines whistling vessels within a set of European instruments) and Brazilian music, with its complex and sophisticated rhythmic structure, itself a product of African influence."






“[music] that draws the audience in to a spare and wonderful sound world “
