Máximo Pérez Risco was born in Puertollano in 1963. He studied sol-fa and guitar since he was 8 years old with a teacher, Bienvenido Castro, who was a friend of his family in Puertollano, learning at that time the basis and guitar fingering, and reading music as well.
From here, he himself will improve in an autodidactic way by reading a lot, watching and interesting in the instrument and the music in general terms, until reaching the highest levels as a performer and creator.
He passed the exams in conservatories as “Pablo Sorozábal” (Puertollano) and the “Royal High Conservatory of Madrid”, with the highest marks.
His love for music has leaded him to build his own style that makes him independent, receiving influences from the great masters in general terms, but not specifically from anybody in particular.

As a performer, he has given a lot of concerts in outstanding music halls as the Ateneo of Madrid. He won several awards and honorable mentions as a music arranger. Nowadays he is devoted to musical composition, having works for any kind of groups, both symphonic and chamber music. He also has film music and music for audiovisual presentations.

As a teacher, he has worked in the conservatories of Puertollano, Montilla, High Conservatory of Córdoba, C. Real etc. Nowadays he teaches guitar at the Basic Conservatory of La Carolina.

He is a free musician with sincere inspiration, devoid of composing artifices that can transform music into a science. Above all, music is art. His style is more “neo-classical” than avant-garde. He prefers not to get too far away from the tonal music, though he didn’t give up looking for his own harmonic language.

Pedro Vilarroig Aroca

Pedro Vilarroig was born in Madrid in 1954. Since a child the music sounds inside his head, starting to take form as soon as he studies music at the Real Conservatorio Superior de Música de Madrid as he was 19. He shows predilection for the symphonic orchestra, but he has several chamber works too, especially piano and choral compositions.
As a composer, his style clearly moves towards the tonality, and modality as well, having numerous and unlike influences: from Mahler and Schostakovitch just to the impresionism, the serialism, jazz and film music. On the other hand, the influence of the traditional spanish music is very poor, much more inclined to the Central European music occassionally dotted with oriental or arabian touches.
He is founder of the Spanish Association of Neotonal Composers (Asociación Española de Compositores Neotonales)
