THE AUTHOR
PAULINA FAIN

Paulina graduated in Tango Flute from the Escuela de Música Popular de Avellaneda (EMPA) in 1996. She has studied harmony, orchestration and composition with Rodolfo Mederos, Pedro Aguilar and Laura Baade, and flute with the maestro, Raul Del Castillo. Since starting out as a professional musician she has pursued her own musical projects, performing concerts in Argentina and on the international stage. She currently performs with pianist, Exequiel Mantega, in the Fain-Mantega Duo. The duo, which explores the limits of the tango genre and brings to it a new tone and role for the flute, has an intense schedule of concerts both at home and abroad.

 

Part of Paulina’s teaching work consists of giving tango flute master-classes in Argentina and around the world. During her international tours she also gives a seminar called “The Language of Tango” in conservatories and musical institutions. This is open to all instruments and focuses on the fundamentals of the language of tango. In Argentina she teaches tango flute in her Buenos Aires studio.
