CARLOS LEONARDO GROISMAN

Concert Guitarist

In the wide musical guitar field in Argentina, Carlos Groisman's diverse musical activities: a concert guitarist, either as soloist or in chamber groups, and a Music Tutor in educational institutions, have shown outstanding professional characteristics.

 

He was born in Buenos Aires in 1956. He began his guitar studies with María Rosa Alonso, and carried out specialization courses with Horacio Ceballos, Miguel Angel Girollet, and the Uruguayan Eduardo Fernandez. He graduated as Senior Guitar Professor at Conservatorio Juan José Castro, La Lucila, Provincia de Buenos Aires. His public appearances began in 1980, due to numerous prizes obtained in national and prestigious competitions: Promociones Musicales de Buenos Aires, Asociación Estímulo Cultural, Concurso “Heitor Villa-Lobos” de la Embajada de Brasil (being one of the 3 finalists among 81 participants), V Concurso “María Luisa Anido” (Asociación Guitarrística de Morón), III Concurso Nacional de San Lorenzo (Pcia. de Santa Fé).

He also won the First Prize of String Instruments of the XI Selección Nacional de Jóvenes Intérpretes Ciudad de Mar Del Plata over violinists, violists, violoncellists and contrabassists.

 

Highly interested in symphonic repertoire and in chamber music, he started his career in chamber orchestras playing together with vionilists, singers, flautists, clarinetists, pianists, clavecinists, He was chosen to participate in several Chamber Music seminars at the famous Camping Musical de Bariloche. He played as a soloist with several Symphonic and Chamber Orchestras, Joaquin Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez and Concierto Andaluz, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco ‘s Concierto en Re, Mauro Giuliani’s Concierto n°1 opus 30 and Concierto n° 3 opus 70, Ernesto Cordero’s Concierto Antillano, Celso garido Lecca’s Concerto for Guitar and Antonio Vivaldi’s Conciertos en Re Mayor and La mayor, under the direction of Juan Carlos Zorzi, Ljerko Spiller, Carlos Calleja, Guillermo Becerra, Carmen Moral, Bernardo Teruggi, Isaac Kleiman and others. It is important to mention in his first audition he performed Giuliani’s Concierto op. 70 and Rodrigo’s Concierto Andaluz in Argentina.

In Europe, he gave recitals in Rome- Sala Baldini , Paris, –Saint Germain L’Auxerrois, Cité Universitaire-Madrid, –Ateneo- Peruggia, -Universitá per Stranieri 1989 y 1990- Athens, Corinto, Dublin (II International Guitar Festival), Brussels –Maison Latinoamericaine- Amsterdam -Soeterijn Teather, Stichting Culturel José Martí, Lateinamerika Instituut-, Stockholm ( Festival Internacional de Guitarra, 1990 y 2000), Essen -Burgermeisterhause 1992 y 1993, Düsseldorf and others. In the U.S.A,  New York (Lincoln Center-Bruno Walter Auditorium), Washington DC(Charles Sumner Museum, M. Luther King Library), Minneapolis (Gustavus Adolhus College), Buffalo N.Y. and others. Also in the main auditoriums of Perú, Bolivia, Uruguay, Brasil, the city of Buenos Aires (Teatro Colón, Teatro Alvear, Teatro San Martin, Teatro Roma, Teatro Argentino, etc) and in several cities of Córdoba, Mendoza, Entre Ríos, Santa Fé, Corrientes, Misiones, La Pampa, Río Negro, Neuquén and Chubut. He has been frequently invited to radio, open tv and cable tv programs. 

He belongs to the celebrated Trio de Guitarras de Buenos Aires. With the group he recorded two CDs for the collection Guitare Plus of the Harmonia Mundi /France record company, broadly recognized by the European critic, a CD recorded in Argentina-Uruguay and two CDs  for the Discoplay record company of Spain (Edic.Discoplay).

In April 2000 he records in Buenos Aires a CD called “Compositores de Latinoamérica en la guitarra” (ediciones GCL 4315) and in Madrid (Edic.Discoplay). In 2002 he records the CD “La Guitarra del Siglo XIX” He performs classical and romantic authors in an old string instrument. In 2003 “Clásicos Argentinos”, in 2004 “meridianos”, in 2006 “Acuarelas”, and in 2010 “Guastavino el Compositor”.

 

“...C.L.G. possesses a warm and intimate way of playing his guitar. He obtained great success with the performance of Astor Piazzolla’s Piezas Para Guitarra and particularly with the A. Ginastera’s Sonata op.47... Other enjoyable moment, was the audition of Heitor Villa-Lobos’ 3 Preludios and Agustín Barrios Mangoré’s 3 Piezas. The Argentine highly impressed the audience with his interpretation..” / “Dublin International Guitar Festival, Colin Cooper Reports”, Classical Guitar magazine, London.

“...Strumentista eccellente il signore Groisman...” La Nazione, Stefano Ragni, Umbria, Italia.

The Diario Página 12, Buenos Aires, wrote:“... Carlos Groisman is one of the most outstanding guitar soloists in Argentina. In his record Compositores de Latinoamérica plays an extremely attractive repertoire....”

“... Guitarist Carlos Groisman uncovers the rich musical repertoire of the romantic guitar of the XIX century... Its composers have produced a worthy music, of easy approach, with common places of a time when Mozart, Beethoven or the opera are taken as models...” René Vargas Vera, La Nación.

It is said that what sets Guastavino apart from his contemporaries, such as Alberto Ginastera, is that his music is often touched by the influences of European composers such as Debussy and Ravel and earlier 19th Century Argentinean nationalistic composers.  The lyrical and harmonic nature of those composers is quite apparent and soprano Graciela Oddone gives much to this most delightful recording. Recommended.

 

He was Music Tutor at the Conservatorio Nacional Carlos Lopez Bouchardo, in Buenos Aires. At present he is a Tutor at the Conservatorios: Juan José Castro, La Lucila, Province of Buenos Aires; Julián Aguirre, Banfield, Province of Buenos Aires, and Alfredo Schiuma de General San Martín, Province of Buenos Aires. Many of his pupils develop professional activities in diverse musical fields.

Under the auspices of the Dirección Nacional de Música, he gave courses on Heitor Villa-Lobos' guitar work whose complete work for guitar interpreted on the  composer's centenary. He also gave a course about Interpretation and Styles for advanced guitar students.

Masterclasses for music students were also included in his itinerary abroad at these Music Centers: Gustavus Adolphus College (Faculty of Music)-Minneapolis; Burgermeisterhause- Essen; Musikskolan- Stockholm; Guitarrensvänner- Stockholm; National Conservatory at Lima, Perú, and in Faculty of Music at UFRGS in Porto Alegre, Brasil.

MUSIC FESTIVAL IN LA FALDA

From 10th to 17th February was held in the location of La Falda, Province of Córdoba, the International Classical Guitar Festival. His mentor and host is the Argentine concert guitarist Carlos GROISMAN who was present at the event together with Eduardo Isaac and Paul GIUSTO (Argentina) and Berta ROJAS (Paraguay – USA).

 35 guitarists were present. They were advanced students and teachers from Brazil, Mexico, Chile, South Africa and from several Argentine provinces who attended the Festival to improve the quality of soloist performance and chamber music performance.

The activities were conformed by a full agenda which included:
- guitar classes in the morning
- chamber music classes and lectures in the afternoon
- concerts performed by both teachers and participants in the evening
Flutist Fabián MURUA and members of the Symphony Orchestra of the City of Cordoba guided the participants in chamber music classes.

All this took place in the beautiful “RETIRO BETANIA” at La Falda, the Museum La Loma of Los Cocos and the theatre of Villa GIARDINO. A massive audience attended the concerts that were held for seven consecutive nights. Tickets cost $ 40 and discounts were given to students and pensioners.

The intense activity of the festival will continue in the City of Buenos Aires. Outstanding performers were chosen by the tutors to give a series of guitar concerts at the Fernandez Blanco Museum during the 2013 season. About 45 guitarists had been chosen in previous seasons  to give  these concerts.

It is worthwhile mentioning that this tutors and students gathering keeps the spirit of the Los Cocos Classical Guitar  MUSICAMPUS (2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 editions). Previous editions had enjoyed the assistance of guest professors, such as Eduardo FERNANDEZ (Uruguay), Carlos PEREZ (Chile), Daniel WOLFF (Brazil), Javier BRAVO and Victor VILLADANGOS (Argentina).

It is very gratifying to mention that more than 300 guitarists coming from South America, Mexico and South Africa, have attended the 8 previous consecutive editions.

“La Nacion” newspaper of the City of Buenos Aires has published two lengthy articles about La Falda Festival 2013, a review prepared by the journalist RENE VARGAS VERA, dated 19th and 21st February 2013.
