Cristóbal Rey Short Info

“Jazz with a Chilean accent “- Antonio Carlos Michael – O Globo Newspaper – Brazil

” Cristóbal Rey is not the typical pianist and composer. His studies were mostly self-directed and he has seemingly become an advanced arranger by relying on intuition alone. He is now presenting one of the most beautiful works of the year.” - Antonio Voland – La Panera entertainment journal – Chile

“He offers a personal reflection of the insurgent America, a subtle and contemporary acoustic composition titled “Abya Yala” – Iñigo Diaz – Emol – Chile

-”My music is essentially based on the sensitivity and variability of my present. I do not play any so-called new-style music; I just have my way of improvising and composing. I do not differentiate between musical styles and trends; I play folk, classical, rock, jazz, and improvised tunes alike.” – Cristóbal Rey
