In his book 'loneliness hundred years' Nobel price winner García Màrquez writes about an imaginary town Macondo. Macondo became over the years synonymous with the magical realism of Màrquez. A comparison can be made with the music of Villa-Lobos and Piazzolla, the notes express also the magic of South America.
Mikhael Zemtsov and Enno Voorhorst have a passion for this kind of music: Mikhael Zemtsov lived and worked long time in Mexico and has even the Mexican citizenship. Enno Voorhorst recorded with great success several CD’s with traditional South American music. It is therefore not surprising that the programs of the Duo Macondo are dominated by music from Spain and Latin America.
Mikhail Zemtsov, Viola (1969)
As a soloist, he played all over the world with many orchestras and is frequently heard at international festivals such as Zacatecas in Mexico, Bastad in Sweden, Lübecker Chamber Music Festival in Germany or the “Tuscan Sun” in Italy. He played with musicians such as Misha Maisky, Bella Davidovitch, Dmitri Sitkovetski and Sarah Chang. In the Netherlands, he played at the Concertgebouw and took part in the Canal Festival in Amsterdam.
Enno Voorhorst, Guitar (1962)
Enno Voorhorst is guitar teacher at the Royal Conservatory, The Hague. His first CD with works by Agustín Barrios Mangore (Sony 1994) was highly praised. Roberto Brocamonte, a pupil of Barrios himself, says about this recording: "The tremolo of Enno is perfect. The interpretation seems as if "The Indian of Paraguay” has been written the piece especially for this hand. Rico Stover, Barrios connoisseur wrote: The CD Agustín Barrios Mangore played by Enno For Horst is the best that I have heard thus far. Recently, Bach pieces and a sequel of the Barrios CD have been worldwide released by NAXOS. This year also a new Baroque CD will be released by Brilliant Classics.
