Adrian Pereyra, guitarist
My work as an interpreter unfolds at the intersection of instrumental and electronic music, with a passion for contemporary music. I am fascinated by the opportunity to work closely with composers to research and develop new sounds and techniques on both classical and electric guitar. My approach to the instrument and my musical philosophy have been profoundly affected by my involvement in the creation of new works, playing world premières, and by longstanding collaborations and friendships with many wonderful musicians, composers, and conductors.
As a soloist and chamber musician I have played in ensembles, orchestras, as well as music theater and dance theater productions under the baton of Daniel Harding, Michael Gielen, Hans Zender, Martyn Brabbins, Peter Rundel, Emilio Pomarico, Mstislav Rostropovich, Ingo Metzmacher, Sylvain Cambreling, Stefan Asbury, Fabrice Bollon, Ilan Volkov, Peter Eötvös, and others. I have given solo concerts with, among others, the Bavarian and Hessian Radio Orchestras and have performed at the Venice Biennale, Munich Biennale, Lyon Biennale, Salzburger Festspiele, Schleswig-Holstein Festival, Donaueschingen Festival, Witten Days for New Chamber Music, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Holland Festival, Steirerischer Herbst, Wien Modern, and Ruhrtriennale.
I am a regular guest musician with Ensemble Mosaik, musikFabrik NRW, the Munich National Theater, Stuttgart State Opera, Bochum Symphony, Nuremburg State Philharmonic, and the BR, HR, SWR, WDR, and NDR symphony orchestras. Concerts I have played in have been broadcasted and recorded by ARTE, Radio France, Deutschland Funk, and the BR, SWR, WDR, HR, NDR, and BBC. Numerous CDs and DVDs document this wide-ranging repertoire.
