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.
