Mario Pérez Blanco | Violin, Viola

 “The concept of pure and simple virtuosity in this performance was given by the violinist Mario Pérez Blanco, that played the “moto Perpetuo” in the allegro of the Violin Concert opus 11 of Paganini, with a brilliant and spectacular cleanness and vehemence, receiving a great ovation from the public.”

Winer of the “Padova International Competition” (2011).

He has a special affection for his teachers (Clarence Myerscoug, Vartan Manoogian, Lothar Strauss, Vicente Huerta, Rainer Sonne and the person that started with him this exciting journey at the age of 6: Wladimiro Martín) with whom he has learnt not only the violin technique, but to love and suffer, self-improvement and to breach invisible walls in oneself. 

Overcoming fears and succeeding as a soloist in the Concerto Grosso n.1 of A. Schnittke in the National Auditorium (2014), the recording of the Carmen Suite or the Sailing World Cup in Santander (2017) is also the result of not so brilliant periods and an internal search that sometimes can lead to depression; -Sometimes one must hit rock bottom to be able to overcome oneself, and this is when one takes out the best, becomes stronger and shines brighter-.

As a concert violinist he has performed with the Spanish National Orchestra (with Gordan Nikolic), the wind ensemble, baroque orchestra and symphonic orchestra of the RCSMM and has offered recitals all over Spain, Europe (Germany, Italy, France, Romania…), three tours in Mexico, etc. Prestigious media like Televisión La Sexta (Grupo Mediaset), Radio Nacional de España, Radio Clásica, La Cope Radio… have relied on his expertise. He has just recently finished recording the concert for violin and orchestra by Rodolfo Halffter with the Spanish National Orchestra.

His love for music is funded on sharing different harmonic and rhythmic experiences. His ensemble, Trio Musicalis, has taught him to breathe, share, appreciate and understand other musical styles. With them he has activated his senses and perceived an unseen, untouchable, unsmellable dimension: chamber music.
