Emilio Solla

Mr Solla got his degree in Classical Piano from the National Conservatory of Music in Buenos Aires in 1986. He studied composition, arranging, counterpoint, improvisation and conducting in Buenos Aires, Barcelona and New York.

His former works cover a wide range of styles, from traditional Argentinean tango to classical, from rock to jazz, from theatre to dance, and include many recordings and concerts (in many occasions as arranger and musical director) in Latin America with a large number of well-known tango, pop and jazz singers, such as Jorge Sobral (first Piazzolla’s singer), Cecilia Rossetto, Miguel Cantilo and Alejandra Martin to name just a few.
