Performance by Pianist Alex Alex Alarcón Fabre

Tuesday, March 1, pianist Alex Alarcón Fabre performed piano works by Ecuadorian composers of the 20th century. The concert was held at Transylvania’s Carrick Theater and was made possible through the joint efforts of Transylvania University Division of Fine Arts and Kentucky Ecuador Partners.

The program included pieces by Aizaga Yeroví, Guevara Viteri, Luis Humberto Salgado Torres, Corsino Duran Carrión, Diego Uyana, Benigna Dávalos, Gonzalo Benitez-Luis Alberto Valencia, and Armando Hidrovo-Ruben Uquillas.

Originally from Quito, Ecuador, the young and talented pianist Alex Alarcón Fabre has been recognized as a great interpreter and promoter of the piano repertoire by composers from Ecuador.  He is a graduate of the Conservatorio Superior Nacional de Música de Quito  and the Universidad Técnica de Manabí.

Alarcon studied piano with Hugo Gianinni (Chile), Angela Rouchanian (Armenia) and Berta Brito (Ecuador); and chamber music and Ecuatorian repertoire with one of the most important composers of his country Maestro Gerardo Guevara Viteri.

He keeps an intense artistic schedule as a solo recitalist and a chamber music interpreter, and he adds to his credits a significant number of vocal recitals accompanying some of most upcoming singers of Ecuador.  Alarcon has played in the most prestigious concert halls around his country, and has participated in many national and international music festivals.

His collaborations include working with pianists Boris Cepeda and Eduardo Florencia in recording the piano works of composer Juan Pablo Munoz Sanz. He also recorded works by Luis Humberto Salgado with the Symphonic Ensemble Quito 6 as well as piano music by composers from Ecuador up to 1930. And his interest in interpreting these composers has allowed him to collaborate with Ecuadorian musicologists, tracing the importance of the composers’ lives and works.

A Date to Remember
Kentucky Ecuador Partners will sponsor a Dutch Dinner in honor of Alex Alarcon on Tuesday, March 8 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Village Host Pizza, 431 East Vine in Lexington.
