Tali on Tali
“For me, music is a process of discovery. Discovering new ideas in the music of old masters like J.S. Bach. Finding the timeless beauty in works of modern composers like Villa-Lobos and Barrios. Becoming aware of the complexity and depth in music by artists like Piazzolla, who may be just on the other side of the walls we tend to place around classical music.”
“I love performing — it gives me the joy of sharing my musical discoveries with an audience. But the joy of discovery is there for all of us, performers and listeners alike, if our ears, our minds, and our hearts are open to music.”
Tali Roth’s repertoire ranges from Baroque composers, such as J.S. Bach, to the contemporary, such as Leo Brouwer. Her emotive style is particularly suited to the works of Granados, Albeniz, and other Spanish romantics and their Latin American counterparts, such as Villa-Lobos and Barrios. Ms. Roth often invites other artists to collaborate with her in chamber groups, premieres of new works, and in novel combinations, such as performances with dancers and singers. Her arrangements include adaptations to guitar of non-traditional styles, such as the tango nuevo of Astor Piazzolla.
