14th Cycle of Chamber Music

La Spagna

A new generation of instrumentalists

Tuesday 6 Apr. 2021
MPM Auditorium | 8pm

The Museo Picasso Málaga Auditorium is hosting nine concerts of chamber music performed by the Orquesta Filarmónica de Málaga for the 14th edition of the cycle, which runs from Autumn 2020 to Spring 2021. This year, the concerts range from historical to jazz, from the purist styles from around the 18th-century to fusions with other musical traditions.

La Spagna was founded in 2009 by Alejandro Marías, and was named in honour of the eponymous popular tune that was heard throughout Europe from the 15th to the 17th century. La Spagna can offer a wide variety of formations, from small chamber groups to orchestral and operatic productions featuring guest conductors. The group plays original instruments or copies adapted to each period and style, and its musicians are young professionals trained in the finest schools and conservatories in Europe. A new generation of instrumentalists committed not only to offering impeccable performances, but also to respecting the historical and social perspective of each repertoire.

Viols and conductor: Alejandro Marías. Viols: Pablo Garrido. Plucked string instruments: Ramiro Morales. Harpsichord: Jorge López-Ecribano.
