THE WHOLE IS GREATER THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS

If you close your eyes and simply give in to the pleasure of just listening, it will probably be difficult for you to believe that 18 musicians standing in a semi-circle and playing without a conductor, are able to execute with great skill not only Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos but also the Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings, or even Adiós Nonino by Astor Piazzolla or Concerto Per Corde by Alberto Ginastera.

IN THE MEDIA

THE NEW YORK TIMES

New York, USA Buenos Aires has the richest tradition of Western art-music among Latin American cities, and the cultivation of that tradition shone through the Camerata Bariloche's playing. A magnificent performance as seen before with precision and vitality apart from its rich sonority. The soloists are excellent but we must highlight that any of the performers may be excellent soloists as well.

THE WASHINGTON POST

Washington, USA The refined Argentinian chamber orchestra Camerata Bariloche is possibly less known here than I Musici but it has a warmer sound, more humane and less mechanical. It is about a string sound that glows, formed by silky arches that seem endless. There exist a spirit among those performers that shows an intimate musical understanding. They are subtle but not trivial, they are dynamic without being brusque and stylist without being artificial.

Berliner Morgenpost

Berlin, Germany The Camerata Bariloche is truly an ensemble not only worth seeing and listening to but also able to captivate the best European chamber orchestras.

Der Tagesspiegel

Berlin, Germany According to what we have read in the program, this Argentinian ensemble is the most famous in its genre in Latin America. We believe that this classification responds only to the South-American view since when judged from here, the Camerata Bariloche, due to its outstanding quality, may well resist any comparison with the most important European ensembles of today.

Der Bund

Bern, Switzerland In the opening of the The Menuhin Festival Gstaad, we had the pleasure of listening to the Camerata Bariloche, admired by its full and sharp sonority and the pure harmony among the soloists.

O Jornal

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Tuning, homogeneity, accuracy in the attacks and such a detailed musical refinement... the evocation of the best chamber ensembles is irresistible. Welcome Camerata Bariloche!

ABC

Madrid, Spain If the Camerata Bariloche’s opening concert of the Argentina’s concert series in Madrid had been acclaimed by standing ovations, the following one, four days later within the same subscription and in the same Auditorio Nacional has not been inferior. It should be emphasized the good sense when designing the dynamic solutions, typically baroque, in the Vivaldi accompaniment and its structuring solution, varied, well contrasted of the Janácek’s Suite for Strings.

Zaragoza

Zaragoza, Spain The Camerata Bariloche knew how to address the scores bringing sensitivity, perfect skill and vibrant musicality. This concert was a great gift for the enthusiasts from Zaragoza who recognized the brilliant performance of the Argentine remarkable virtuous musicians with a long-lasting applause.

Il Tempo

Rome, Italy The Camerata Bariloche delighted the audience with a musical understanding of extraordinary quality and remarkable performances of its soloists.

Excelsior

México City An impressive performance: perfect discipline, delicate sonority, excellent taste and exceptional quality. The Camerata Bariloche, one of the greatest chamber music ensembles we have ever listened to.

Las últimas Noticias

Santiago, Chile Varela, an exquisite artist for the Mendelssohn’s Concerto for Violin and Strings. Superb end of season with an unexpected substitution, the Camerata, as of now, got the superstar status.

El Universal

Caracas, Venezuela The Camerata Bariloche is an ensemble that honours the Latin America musical scene. The superior quality of this chamber group prevails over many others that have visited us from the Old World the last ten years.
