For me you still are the composer that have more possibilities than all the others, to my judgement you have the advantage of studying and you feel Buenos Aires the way I do. Don’t get stuck, keep growing. Study the other music to perform ours well. Congratulations for insisting in becoming a musician.”

About me

When I was a child, I listened to my mother playing tangos on our piano, beautifully performed. In secondary school, I played accordion in a little band with other pupils playing popular songs. When I finished school I played accordion for 2 or 3 years in the quintet of Italian singer Giuliano Verna.

Our repertoire included renowned Italian songs and some songs that I already had composed. With the earnings from our performances, I paid for flight hours to become a Private Pilot and after several years at the Aeronautics National School I became a Commercial Pilot……

  • Tocamos sus tangos por supuesto y su Valse de cristal que me enamoró, tanto como a Maya y a Polina. Hicimos una versión a 4 manos, gusta que le envíe la partitura? También con Maya hicimos una versión a dos pianos. La gente nuevamente se asombró de su música. Yo diría que fue éxito total de sus tangos en México, igual que en Milán.

    Irina Shishkina Pianista | Ciudad de México

    Remko de Landmeter Flautista | Roterdam, Holanda
  • Grande Saul!! Musica stupenda, sei un grande compositore. In questi ultimi anni, dopo avere studiato con Gary Burton, mi sono dedicato molto più al Vibrafono pertanto ti volevo chiedere se è possibile avere la parte del concerto per vibrafono e orchestra d'archi, mi piacerebbe vedere la parte di vibrafono se è possibile. Grazie.

    Giuseppe Mazzamuto Percusionista de la Orquesta Sinfónica Siciliana, y vibrafonista de jazz | Italia
  • First of all, your music is very beautiful! We did a concert last evening, at the conservatorium where I teach, in Gennevilliers, close to Paris.... but they loved it and I know it was good for them because your music is full of... music! The piano player was a Corean student (Ji-Hui) who asked me to play it because she loves it too! All the best!

    Jacques Riou Flautista en Conservatoire de Gennevilliers | París, Francia

  • Whenever I hear music that makes me smile, laugh, cry, think or dream I thank life. I felt as if I knew you before I met you, having heard your music. "Ideas y emociones" is one of my favorites all time. Scriabin, Bach, Chopin, Grieg and Tchaikovsky. And your music. From the  heart. Thank you for your importance not only as a musician but as a human person.

    Kjell Edstrand Pianista, arreglador, director y compositor | Malmö, Suecia
  • Estimados Saúl y Gerardo, Espero que se encuentren bien. He escuchado con mucho placer las grabaciones mp3 de las piezas de Saúl y me gustan muchísimo. Tienen fineza y al mismo tiempo un ritmo desbordante e implacable. Algunas obras tienen un lenguaje pre-impresionista como « Al rojo vivo ». Esta semana me voy a Polonia, en donde toco el próximo domingo un programa de música polaca entre otras cosas la sonata para violín y piano de J. Elsner (el maestro de Chopin).Un gran abrazo.

    Adrian Kreda Pianista suizo-argentino
  • Thank you so much for your nice message! I checked out your website and listened to your music today and I am amazed! I like each and every composition of yours. Since I am a singer too I also listened to your songs and I fell in love with the song "Sin tu mitad". I decided to sing it as soon as I will have the opportunity. Unfortunately, I don't speak Spanish but as I am listening to these beautiful songs it is just a matter of time and I will learn the language too. Your music is a huge inspiration for me. I love tangos and I am very interested in learning and playing your passionate compositions.
