Martha Algerich and the Quiroga Quartet inaugurating La Filarmonica’s 5th Season

The 6th of October starts La Filarmonica’s Fifth Season in the Auditorio Nacional. This concert counts on the legendary pianist Martha Argerich accompanied by the Quiroga Quartet. It will be the second of three concerts of the tour which will include Barcelona and Lisbon.

 

Martha Argerich at last a soloist

During the past decades Argerich has performed very few times as soloist. For this reason, she will begin the 5th Season with her interpretation of Bach’s  Partita No. 2 in C minor, BWV 826, a unique fact and very special. This Partita forms part of the most demanding of Bach’s mature works for the keyboard and represents one of the milestones of Baroque music.

 

The Quiroga Quartet, the confirmation of a tradition

The CUARTETO/Josep Molina

The CUARTETO/Josep Molina

In recent years, the Quartet has consolidated an important national and international trajectory. The acknowledgement of the Quartet’s success confirms the tradition of the string quartet by Casals. In this concert they will interpret alone the J. Brahms String Quartet Op. 51 No.1 in C minor where they can demonstrate their very high technical level as well as their energetic and personal sound which has led them to conquer the stages.

 

A daring combination of interpreters

Argerich has always been characterized for her flexibility and uniqueness on stage with different groups and artists, with special predilection to project young talent. This concert will combine the wisdom of the illustrious pianist with the freshness of the emerging Spanish quartet.
