About This Song
Stevan Pasero Guitar Music: “Soleares Enrique” was partially written by Stevan Pasero and recorded with ensemble in 2010 on the album called Twelve Shades of Night featuring bassist Sascha Jacobsen, the Musical Art Quintet (string quintet), Felix de Lola (cajon & palmas) and Colin Douglas (drums & percussion). The album features Brazilian, Spanish & American compositions infused with bossa nova, rhumba, flamenco, classical and jazz styles. Afterwards, Stevan performed the work as a solo concert piece and re-recorded a version in 2012, “Soleares Enrique – single,” which was transcribed to sheet music in 2014. The song is set with a traditional soleares 12/8 rhythm and style, yet with Western influence. The song utilizes several traditional falsettas and compass, yet includes new classical-esque falsettas by Stevan. The soleares style was shown to Stevan in 2002 by his godfather, Enrique Ruiz de Luzuriaga, a known flamenco artist who traveled with his famous flamenco group in Europe during the 50’s. Enrique passed many of his memorized falsettas to Stevan during the years that they lived and played together.
