Adiós a Eugenio Toussaint

tous por José Roberto Cruz Núñez y Tania Ortega

 (Mex) Entre las naturales y las bemoles, la música nacida de los dedos de Eugenio Toussaint se expandía en el espacio. El pentagrama que en su cabeza yacía se transformaba en sincopa e improvisación para los tímpanos. Tono a tono, sea en Rousseau o en Tina en el río, el ritmo de sus discos sacude las sensaciones del soma, con conjugaciones y adjetivos vivos, aún después de su muerte.

El compositor y músico mexicano, Eugenio Toussaint, falleció la tarde del martes, 8 de febrero, en Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo. El jazzista autodidacta y conductor del programa Suave es la noche de Canal 22, perdió la vida a los 56 años, gracias a un paro cardíaco.

Estuvo en el grupo Odradek en 1972, en Blue Note en 1975. En éste hizo sus primeras grabaciones de música original junto con Roberto Aymes, —con más de 35 años de trayectoria musical—. También realizó estudios de Armonía para piano con el maestro Jorge Pérez Herrera; de Técnica pianística, con Néstor Castañeda; y obtuvo una beca para educarse en Dick Grove Music Workshops en la ciudad de Los Angeles California.

En 1976 fundó Sacbé. Un grupo conformado por sus hermanos Enrique y Fernando, cuyo legado jazzístico concibió los discos Sacbé y Selva Tucanera. Posteriormente, vieron la luz Street Corner, Aztlán y Dos mundos, principalmente distribuidos en Estados Unidos; así como Paisajes, en el cual incorporó la percusión étnica y los sintetizadores, con apoyo del percusionista y etnomusicólogo Antonio Zepeda.

Después del terremoto en México, Toussaint regresa al país para dedicarse a la composición de música de concierto. Unos años más tarde, en 1989, el Sindicato Único de Trabajadores de la Música le otorga el máximo reconocimiento otorgado por el gremio: la Lira de Oro.

Es conocido en México principalmente por sus aportaciones en la composición de música de concierto. Algunas de sus creaciones son Popol-Vuh, Concierto para Violonchelo y Orquesta #1, Danzas de la Ciudad, Suite de las ciencias, Variaciones Concertantes, Cinco miniatura de Paul Klee, Estudio Bop, Rumba de Rumba y Gauguin, a éste último le fue nominado para el Grammy Latino como mejor disco de música clásica de 2001.

“Lo que sí me interesa es que mi música y la mexicana se conozca en otros lados, en esto nos hemos rezagado mucho, aunque poco a poco van saliendo algunos proyectos que podrían hacer que esto mejorara”, así expresó, según la revista Proceso.

“Hacer jazz es contar una historia a ritmo de beso” —así escribe Joaquim Romaguera en El jazz y sus espejos—. Tras su muerte, Eugenio Toussaint ha dejado una huella histórica en la música mexicana, convirtiéndose en un legendario pianista y músico que a ritmo de beso conquistó al escucha. Alguna vez comentó: “yo el jazz no lo dejo”. La postrera le detuvo para que su música se reinventara cada día y cada noche en los oídos de sus seguidores.

La Orquesta Nacional de Bélgica y la Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional la Orquesta Filarmónica de la UNAM, la Orquesta de Aguascalientes, Orquesta de Jazz del Berklee College of Music, la Sinfónica Carlos Chávez y la Orquesta Filarmónica de Bogotá interpretan sus piezas

El compositor también incursionó en el campo de la producción musical. Dentro de la academia, ofreció diplomados y seminarios dentro y fuera del país. También fue director académico en la Academia de Música Fermatta. Asimismo participó en programas culturales del canal 22.
