strength and humor

As O’Connor explained, “In Grand Reserve the pieces have been chosen with great care from an archive of more than 170 issues accumulated over almost 55 years of experience. They have been selected in pursuit of a balance between text and music to compose a show with strength and a lot of humor”.

The staging is part of a transition process in which the group finds itself after the death of two original members, Daniel Rabinovich and Marcos Mundstock, deceased in 2015 and 2020.

However, “among viewers who have watched this group for more than 30 years, the reaction is one of gratitude for continuing the legend of Les Luthiers.”

an unmistakable humor

Awarded with the Princess of Asturias Award for Communication and Humanities, in addition to the highest distinctions of the Argentine Congress, among many others, Les Luthiers have an unmistakable humoras well as one of its emblematic characters (Johann Sebastian Mastropiero) or its complicated instruments.

O’Connor highlights as keys to his permanence the professionalism and work discipline in all these decades, to which is added that “unique formula in the world” of humor, theater and music with “informal instruments”, products of a symbiosis of imagination and musical technique.

“It is very difficult to find a group that makes music of the quality that Les Luthier does, with intelligent, ingenious humor, with the use of language as a flag. It is not easy to find that,” he stressed.

The comedian also highlights that although humor has changed in these more than 50 years that they have been touring stages, “Les Luthiers maintained the conviction of not succumbing to the temptation of going towards fashion, towards what is funny today”, and Rather, he opted for “having supported an idea and not having gone out of line.”

“When you did something different, you have to continue to be different,” he concluded.

A premiere is coming

This year, during which they will tour Spain for a month starting in October with Grand Reservethe group has yet to premiere in November Mastropiezos of Mastropierowhich will be his first new work in 14 years, after Lutherapia which premiered in 2008.

Mastropiezos by Mastropiero was going to be released in May 2020 but the pandemic prevented it. It will be the first creation made for the current formation.

“We had a pandemic where people had a bad time, they were locked up, depressed, they lost family and friends; and today they stick their heads out of the bottom of the bin and need oxygen. And laughing is a curative,” said O’Connor, who appears grateful and “blessed” for being able to give “those minutes of grace” to the public.

“I’m not telling you that laughter heals you right now, but it’s a balm for the duration of a comedy show,” O’Connor said.
