Mendelssohn

Mendelssohn's octet will open the Autumn Concert Series in Cervera

An emblematic work of chamber music will open the XXXIII Cycle of autumn concerts in Cervera, Sunday 18 October, them 19 hours, in the Auditorium of the University of Cervera.

The Teixidor quartets (formed by Irantzu Zuasti and Joan Marsol, violins; Jordi Armengol, viola, and Xavier Roig, cello) and Altimira (formed by Maria Florea and Luís Peña, violins; David Andújar, viola, and Mariona Tuset, cello) col·are working for the first time to offer a work as well known as theOctet for strings op. 20 de Felix Mendelssohn.
Written on 1825, when the composer had only 16 years, it is one of his great chamber works. A music full of vitality and optimism that can be heard live very rarely.

In the first part, the Altimira Quartet will join the commemoration of the Beethoven Year - which has gone too unnoticed due to the suppression of many concerts because of the Covid-19- interpreting his Quartet op. 18 No.. 3. It will be a good opportunity to recognize the figure of the great composer on the 250th anniversary of his birth..

There will be limited capacity and all current health measures will be complied with.

“Cervera Vila del Llibre” the year·the edition 2020

“Cervera Vila del Llibre” the year·the edition 2020

Com a mesura de prevenció davant l’actual escenari sanitari provocat per la pandèmia de la Covid-19, el festival literari de les Terres de Ponent, “Cervera Vila del Llibre 2020”, cancel·la la seva celebració, prevista inicialment per aquest mes d’octubre.

La Paeria de Cervera i VilaDelLlibre.CAT anuncien que la cinquena edició deCervera, Vila del Llibreno se celebrarà aquest 2020 com a mesura de protecció davant l’actual escenari sanitari provocat per la pandèmia de la COVID-19.

La decisió respon a la impossibilitat de mantenir l’esperit de la iniciativa –una proposta cultural de cap de setmana capaç d’atraure un gran nombre de visitants al carrer Major gràcies a un programa amb més de 60 activitats–, al temps que es respecta el compliment de l’actual marc normatiu de contenció de la pandèmia i es protegeix la població.

Besides, l’excepcionalitat de la situació i l’emergència sanitària, econòmica i social que ha creat, ha obligat el Govern Municipal a prioritzar el treball per mitigar les conseqüències negatives que deixa el virus i posposar enguany importants esdeveniments culturals, com és el cas de la Vila del Llibre.

Tot i així, la Paeria ha apostat per una cultura segura, organitzant amb èxit de públic projectes culturals novedosos com la “Festiuada. Moments d’art i marinada” al llarg dels mesos de juliol, agost i setembre, i també la setmana cultural Isagoge i Festa Major.
