Hernán Quintela (AR) – Eternidad

Hernán Quintela about his piano piece “Eternidad”:

“I imagined a trip through time and space: I pictured Beethoven walking down the streets of Buenos Aires at the beginning of the 21th Century. I depicted him discovering our culture, our traditions and our music. In that oniric scenario I tried to follow his footsteps in an effort to witness what he might have seen and decipher what he could have felt. These piece is the soundtrack for his hypothetical journey across my city.”
