Tasto Solo combines creativity, historical research, and virtuosity in its exploration of medieval and early renaissance music. Led by director and founder Guillermo Pérez, the ensemble illustrates the refinement of this exquisite repertoire through a unique musical language comprised of dramatic rhythm, mise-en-scène, improvisation, and a playful dialogue between performers.  

Tasto Solo’s acclaimed discography includes two volumes from a triptych project devoted to 15th century keyboard music, “Meyster ob allen Meystern” and “Le chant de leschiquier”, as well as a new disc devoted to early 16th century period, “Early Modern English Music: 1500-1550” (all released by Passacaille). These recordings have received multiple international press awards including the Diapason d’Or, ICMA Nomination, Amadeus “CD of the Month”, Ritmo & Audio Classica’s “Excellent”, Pizzicato’s “Supersonic”, Scherzo’s “Exceptional”, France Musique “Coup de Coeur”.
