Fabio Banegas, a grandson a Czceh immigrant to Argentina, pays tribute to the legacy of European composers who immigrated to Argentina in the early 20th century.  He is particularly interested in Jacobo Ficher who was part of the Jewish diaspora that settled in Argentine during the interwar period.  To that aim he is preparing the publication of Jacobo Ficher’s colossal collection of nine piano sonatas and their subsequent recording.  Additionally, Banegas is preparing Jacobo Ficher three piano concertos.
