Pianist Fred Sturm returns to the Outpost to perform recent works by three living composers from Argentina (Alejandro Rutty), Mexico (Arturo Márquez), and Spain (Mario Carro), all of whom use rhythm as a central component of their music. These new works will be paired with classic rags and Afro Cuban dances from the early twentieth century— pieces that lie on the border between popular and classical music, and that share an emphasis on rhythm.  Fred Sturm has specialized in Ibero-American music for over 20 years, presenting concerts and producing several CDs. His most recent CD, Piano Music of Federico Ibarra, was reviewed in Fanfare Magazine by Peter Burwasser, who wrote, “he plays the music of Ibarra as if he were writing it on the spot. It is rare to hear a musician so inhabited by the material.” Sturm’s most recent performance took place last May in Mexico City’s Museum of Fine Arts, where he presented works by Villa-Lobos, Federico Ibarra, and Miguel del Águila.
