Born in Argentina, living in Germany. Diplomas in composition in Buenos Aires (with Juan Carlos Zorzi) and Cologne (Johannes Fritsch, Mauricio Kagel). Further studies with Helmut Lachenmann and Karlheinz Stockhausen. I composed 500+ works, I teach Composition & Arrangements at the Hochschule fuer Kuenste Bremen.

Pianist & composer Juan María Solare (Buenos Aires, 1966), an Argentine living in Germany, is one of those musicians that open scarcely travelled paths. The originality of his music stems from the confluence between post-Piazzollian tango and classical contemporary music. His singular style represents a synthesis of North and South, classical and popular, wit and melancholy, performance and composition. "Art music and light music are not irreconcilable extremes, but poles in a force field", says Solare about his "musical bilingualism".

Representative styles & keywords: piano, tango argentino, contemporary classical, post-tonal music, electroacoustic.


He has given piano recitals in Buenos Aires and dozens of Argentinean cities, plus Berlin, Istanbul, Finland, Denmark, Amsterdam, Madrid, Graz, Geneva, Seville, London... The audience at his concerts is fascinated by his warmth and quality.


Solare conducts the Orquesta no Típica at the university of Bremen (Germany). At the Hochschule für Künste in Bremen he teaches Composition and Arrangements. As a pianist with over 400 concerts on his account, he has participated at the World Tango Summit on three occasions. He is the editor of four tango albums for the publishing house Ricordi Munich. Twelve CDs by different performers include at least one piece by Juan María Solare.

He conducts the orchestra of the Bremer Orchestergemeinschaft and the Chamber Orchestra of the Jacobs University Bremen.
