Music Without Quarantine – An Interview with Diego Ares

An interview with Diego Ares - Michael ThalliumWho knows how year 2020 will remain in the memory of people! But one thing is sure, for many March and April 2020 will remain as the months of quarantine and confinement at home. In many countries around the world, these months were the “months of balconies”. However, March 2020 will go down in the personal history of some people as the month when Music Without Quarantine was born, a project with the aim to connect music and people, to connect great musicians with people who usually don’t listen to classical music. One of the artists who has participated in Music Without Quarantine is the Spanish harpsichordist Diego Ares, who has performed all around the world and currently lives in Basel, Switzerland. He is one of the first class harpsichordists in the world and, in April 2020, he was also the first one to break the ice in a series of interviews for Music Without Quarantine.

For those of you who would like to have a look at his recordings, please visit: RECORDINGS OF DIEGO ARES. However, there’s nothing like listening to the sound of a harpsichord or a clavichord live. So, if you ever have the chance, I encourage you to attend one of his recitals. And yes, if you’re lucky enough, do not hesitate and get closer, listen to him and eve talk to him after the recital. From the hands of Diego Ares spring up serene and beautiful melodies. More than an artist who knows his doctrine, he stands as a good man in the good sense of the phrase. I like to differentiate between performers, excellent performers and “the musician”, being the latter the one who really knows his art and knows how to explain it. Humble and a constant learner, Diego Ares is definitely an excellent performer, one of the best harpsichordists in the world, but, even more important, he is a musician, a MUSICUS, who honours every single letter of this word.
