“Latino instruments made an appearance (Symphony Space) as well, like the Argentine bandoneón, artfully played
by J. P. Jofre.”

NEW YORK TIMES (By VIVIEN SCHWEITZER)

“JP Jofre’s compositions are masterly and his Quintet’s musicality wasn’t less than excellent”

PAQUITO D’ RIVERA

He is an explosively talented performer and composer, who also happens to come from Argentina.

MERCURY NEWS (By RICHARD SCHEININ)

“JP Jofre is one the most important Argentinean Bandoneon players and composers”

CNN EN ESPAÑOL

 

“the brilliant bandoneón player JP Jofre.”

TIME OUT  NEW YORK

“This music lives or dies with the bandoneon, and Jofre has the technique and personality in abundance for this
music. Dressed all in black but for his stylish glasses with white frames, he played with immense personality and
confidence, seizing the stage from the first and only releasing it when Liberis assumed the melodic lead”.

THE BOSTON MUSICAL INTELLIGENCER  (by Brian Schuth)

“the 29 year-old Bandoneon master JP Jofre.”

NEW YORK TIMES ( by ALLAN KOZZIN)

“The rising star bandoneon player, Juan Pablo Jofre, continued with his own composition “Tango Movements.” Juan
Pablo is tremendously talented. His composition is less familiar than Piazzolla, but equally absorbing. They don’t
make bandoneons anymore, but apparently they still make great bandoneon players.”

NEW YORK LATIN CULTURE

“JP Jofre proved a master of the bandoneon, Piazzolla’s signature concertina instrument with two keyboards.
Recreating the visceral charge of Piazzolla’s legendary quintet concerts and recordings, Jofre led a high-tech combo
in four of the composer’s most popular tango creations. By turns harsh, insistent and softly caressing, Jofre’s
bandoneon was first among equals, particularly in his own moody, emotionally dark introduction to Verano Porteno.”

SOUTH FLORIDA CLASSICAL REVIEW (By Lawrence Budmen)

“Jofre’s “Tango Movements” which he composed originally for symphony orchestra.  The spirited first movement
gave way to a soulful center section and the contrast of Mr. Jofre’s playing was fascinating to see and hear. Mr. Jofre
again dazzled with his bandoneón, played with artistry and passion.”

-VOCE DI MECHE

“The applause at the end of Opera Hispánica’s production of “María de Buenes Aires” was loudest for the
bandoneónist JP Jofre, who took his bow last.”
