"Tempo Rubato"

We mentally connect some words with Mayte Martin in any of her aspects: grace, temperance, tenderness, virtuosity, emotional charge and artistic honesty.   She counts on the support of the critics, the collective acceptance of the fans and an interesting lot of awards.  But the broader recognition comes from the general audience that values her precious and calm singing, so full of shades.

“Tempo Rubato” is a project based on her own compositions with arrangements of Maestro Joan Albert Amargós.  It brings us a sound register full of emotions that has been growing for twenty years, by force of life lessons.

In this gracious and delightful show of great emotional baggage, Mayte Martin takes as company for her guitar a classic string quartet that makes her beat again as a composer.  On top of this, for the occasion, the great dancer Belén Maya impersonates through her dance the range of emotions that Mayte unleashes with her echo.  Thanks to her need to deeply explore all the maze of active elements: music, scene, story, performance and language, she is able to find the latest and main stone, key to raise this creative building of thought and communication.
