Guitarist Fabio Zini will present an electrifying repertoire that combines tango, Argentine folk and classical music, when he performs at Crowell Public Library on Sunday October 20 at 2:00 pm in the Barth Community Room. Mr. Zini has traveled the world delighting audiences, from his hometown in Santa Fe, Argentina to Skagway, Alaska, Hawaii, all over Europe, and Asia. His soulful and romantic touch on the guitar connects the audiences with such great composers as Bach, Tchaikovsky, Schubert, Manuel de Falla, Ernesto Lecuona and Astor Piazzolla.
Fabio Zini received a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education with an instrumental major in guitar from the National University of Santa Fe, Argentina. He has composed several works for the guitar and other instruments, including a concerto for guitar and orchestra. The Ten Commandments of the Guitar, book and CD, is a collection of original compositions by Fabio Zini, illustrating his technique. After several successful studio albums, Fabio developed the Zinistesia System - the first musical notation in color for guitar in the USA and Canada. He has also taught guitar to students at Florida International University in Miami.
This year Mr. Zini has composed for the documentary, “The Needle and the Thread.” In 2007 he was nominated for a Grammy in the Tango genre. In 2017 Classical Guitar Magazine published their video pick of Fabio Zini playing Piazzolla's Adios Nonino.
