With mythical zarzuela composers such as Francisco Alonso, Federico Moreno Torroba, and Pablo Luna, this concert brings together a series of emblematic pieces that shine a special spotlight on women. These works provide spectators with the opportunity to see the broad range of female roles in popular music during the first half of the 20th century, with beloved characters like the chulapa.

The poetic ambience of Saint Saëns’ song, where the violin strings and bows meld with the singing of nature and expression of the voice, is the epigraph to this concert that explores conjunction of voice with string instruments. The two female singers, along with the violin, the violoncello, and the piano in multiple different combinations, create sound atmospheres through poetic texts set to music by renowned composers like Beethoven, Brahms, Berlioz, Saint Saëns, and Falla. At the same time, we discover other jewels from lesser-played authors, such as Vaughan Williams, Frank Bridge, Bohuslav Martinu, and others lesser-known, such as Joseph Marx, Ronaldo Miranda, and composer Vally Weigl.

The Quintets for string quartet and a second viola are a small corpus of singular significance in Mozart’s art. Like the fifth voice in the motets and madrigals of the 16th and 17th centuries, the fifth instrument added a new dimension to predominant chamber music education, with depth of thought and quality in texture. This provides greater variety in dialogues and new, ingenious combinations in harmony and counterpoint.

Fairy Tales, the Bowling Trio: lovely monikers for marvellous music. The first known composition in music history for clarinet, viola, and piano is the Kegelstatt or Bowling Trio Op. 498 by Mozart. The famous moniker comes from a legend that says Mozart composed this trio while bowling. It was first performed (with Mozart himself on the viola) at the Jacquin family’s home and was dedicated to one of their daughters.
Märchenerzählungen, or Fairy Tales, Op. 132, were written by Schumann shortly before entering the sanatorium where he spent the last years of his life and are one of his last compositions. Although composed before his suicide attempt, the music is concise and joyful.
The 8 Pieces for clarinet, viola, and pinao Op.83 by Bruch perfectly align with Schumann’s romantic spirit and his Fairy Tales. On this occasion, we will hear pieces 1, 3, 5, 7, and 8.
