'There is much to discover: European influences in
these miniatures are mixed with Latin accents, persuasively performed by Oyarzábal.'

The Guardian

Join us to celebrate the launch of Pixaudio’s new album featuring Spanish pianist, Antonio Oyarzábal: El Fin del Silencio focuses on musical creations for piano by Ibe/rican women composers arbitrarily silenced and neglected for decades. Twenty-one composers form this musical mosaic, where Oyarzábal defends their distinctive musical idiosyncrasies and proves once again his commitment to highlighting music written by women. The programme includes music by fellow Basque artist, Emiliana Zubeldía, as well as a nod to the 2023 centenary of pianist and composer Alicia de Larrocha.

Born in Bilbao, the award-winning Spanish pianist, Antonio Oyarzábal, trained at the Musikene in San Sebastián and the GSMD in London, where he was a recipient of the Guildhall School Trust. A versatile artist, he combines solo performance with chamber music, accompaniment and orchestral piano, and has performed with conductors such as John Wilson, Vasily Petrenko, Juanjo Mena and Vladimir Ashkenazy, and orchestras including the EUYO. Antonio has performed internationally and across the UK’s major venues and festivals, including the Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, London’s Barbican, Cadogan Hall, LSO St Luke's, Westminster Cathedral, Leeds Lieder, Casino Kursaal, Auditorio Nacional de Madrid, Fundaçao Gulbekian, Philarmonie Gasteig, Philarmonie Kasel, Grafenegg Auditorium, CERN, and Musikverein. His recordings have been featured on Classic FM, BBC Radio 3 and RNE. His second album, La Muse Oubliée, which explores music by women composers, received a five-star review in BBC Music Magazine, and was chosen as one of the best five piano albums of 2021 by Fanfare Magazine, as well as receiving the Gold Award from Melómano Magazine. He also maintains an ongoing commitment to female composers as an Ambassador for Donne. Antonio will be making his Wigmore Hall debut in March 2024.
