Twelve cycles devoted entirely to chamber music and performed by the Málaga Philharmonic Orchestra (OFM), are sufficient encouragement to have made the considered choice to continue supporting a project firmly based on this aspect of music, here in Málaga. It offers a broad palette of colours and textures that encompass the main historical periods in which intimate sound was - and still is – relevant. Once again, we find our voice featuring in a prominent role, and we approach the idea of art as the creator of feelings and emotions - as Cadiz’s own great composer, Manuel de Falla, would have said. There is a direct link to this train of thought, and it is facilitated by the MPM Auditorium, a venue that creates an intimate connection with its audience of art-lovers and where, in this 12th edition, the spoken word will also play a part.
