Duo Jerez was formed by soprano Lucía Mariel Fernández and guitarist Juan Pablo Palomino when they met at the Conservatory "Arrigo Pedrollo" in Vicenza under the supervision of Maestro Rita Romano.
Lucía began her musical career in Argentina, attending several masterclasses lead by great musical Masters from Rosario and Buenos Aires, such as Adrian Van der Spoel, Graciela Mozzoni and Gabriel Garrido. After moving to Italy she enrolled in The Chamber Music Class for singers, under the guidance of Maestro Elisabetta Andreani. She is currently followed by Nadiya Petrenko.
Juan Pablo, graduated with top marks under the guidance of Master Stefano Grondona, and over the years has received many awards from national and international music competitions as a soloist and also as part of the chamber ensemble.
The artists have performed in many concerts in some of the most prestigious venues in the Vicenza and Veneto region, which really demonstrates the talent and uniqueness of the duo.
During the evocative performances by Duo Jerez their audience can enjoy a true, cultural fusion of Spanish and Italian vocal repertoire.
Recuerdos de un exilio is the first album by the duo, which brings together four live performances, produced and published by ImageSonika.
Thanks to their mutual Latin American descent, Juan Pablo and Lucía decided to create a Spanish repertoire, derived from their shared cultures, which has lead to a wonderful collaboration.
Duo Jerez have achieved a refined an evocative voice and guitar repertoire, thanks to the artistic supervision of the well known guitarist Stefano Grondona. They have chosen various pieces by renowned composers such as Manuel De Falla, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Garcia Lorca, Joaquín Rodrigo, Fernando Sor and Giancarlo Facchinetti.
