  3. Fantasía Bética, for piano - Manuel de Falla

Temperamental, elegant and charismatic Spanish pianist from Cordoba (Andalusia). The enormous power of communication of his performance catches the listener's attention immediately, leading him to discover his profound creative sensitivity.

The astonishing originality of his artistic renderings emerges from an incessant interest in exploring the piano repertoire, ranging from Bach and Mozart, through Brahms, Schumann and Rachmaninov, to Spanish contemporary music. In his programs he always looks for a connection between classic and contemporary works, developing a discourse of interrelation.

For Amoros, the contemporary music is a field of creativity and freedom. He can feel the composers speaking directly to him and he understands them in a language particularly related to his sensitivity. Therefore, his performances of contemporary music are irresistibly spontaneous and uninhibited.

It has recently been released his first CD for the Naxos label, a world premiere recording of the complete piano works of the composer Leonardo Balada, one of which ('Mini- miniatures') is dedicated to Pablo Amoros.

Moreover, his emotional, communicative style, together with a subtle seek for tone colour, makes him a great interpreter of the romantic repertoire. A simple Chopin nocturne under Amoros fingers achieves to move most of his listeners.

He studied at the Conservatorio Superior de Música of Córdoba, where he graduated with the highest honors. Afterwards, he went to London to improve his musical training with the renowned piano teacher Noretta Conci, a pupil of Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli.

Back in Spain, he completed his training with Alicia de Larrocha and with the spanish pianist Cristina Bruno, a key figure in his personal and artistic development. He has played in most of the Spanish cities and auditoriums, like Madrid, Barcelona, Valladolid, Granada, Cordoba, Malaga, Cadiz, Palma de Mallorca, Mahon and Ceuta, with highlight performances in the Auditorio Nacional of Madrid, Teatro del Liceo of Barcelona, Teatro Jovellanos of Gijón, Teatro Maestranza of Sevilla, Manuel de Falla Concert Hall of Granada, the Juan March Foundation of Madrid, the XVIII Contemporary Music Festival of Malaga, the XIII Contemporary Music Conference of Cordoba, the international Rafael Orozco Piano Festival of Cordoba, the Aula de Musica of the University of Alcala de Henares, among other renowned concert series and festivals. He has also toured extensively the US, England, France, Italy, Perú, and China.

In 2017 he released a cd with music of Falla and Granados and he made a tour in Spain with actor Emilio Gutiérrez Caba performing wroks of this Cd.

In 2017 he made what up to this date is his last recording for IBS records. With cellist Iagoba Fanlo he recorded at the Auditorio Manuel de Falla de Granada, works by spanish composers of the Generación del 27. This recording has had a wonderful reception and the best critics being cover of the prestigious Scherzo magazine and appearing at El País , El Mundo, ABC, El Correo, RNE, Cadena Ser, TVE among other media.
