Recital in San Vicente, Zamora. Our last Recital brought us to Zamora, Spain. The venue, San Vicente Martyr, is a Romanesque church in the city of Zamora, built in the late twelfth century and declared a National Monument in 1961.
Our second performance of Vivaldi to Bartok brought us to Saffron Green Primary School. Year 4 children enjoyed the experience of a live concert and gave us amazing feedback:
I used to not like this sort of music but now I love it. It was exceptional, tremendous. I’m speechless.
Thanks to The DaCapo Music Foundation for supporting us and to the school for hosting us so nicely and including the concert in the newsletter
Sample from our last concert Thinking in Canon: Duo Nr.1, Op.131b
Max Reger (1873-1916) was a German composer, conductor, pianist, organist and academic teacher. He produced an enormous output over little more than 25 years, nearly always in abstract forms. Few of his compositions are well known in the 21st century. His works followed classical and baroque compositional techniques such as fugue and continuo. The influence of the latter can be heard in his chamber works which are deeply reflective and unconventional. Among those we find his 3 Canons & Fugues in Old Style, Op.131b, written in 1914.
