“CONCUERDA Y MAS” is a musical project in which different styles, periods, instruments and personalities meet together. This “Spanish Quintet” is a combination of the vibrating sound of the bowed string instruments and the plucking percusive sound of the flamenco guitar. In this ensemble, the guitar plays the role of the viola, and is the central instrument around which the legato of the bowed string instruments harmonizes with the rhythm, and the mixing of sharp and bass sounds. CONCUERDA Y MAS’s main purpose is to return the flamenco style to the compositions of classical Spanish authors who based on flamenco, like Falla, Albéniz, Granados, and Turina. In this sense, CONCUERDA Y MAS blends the classical traditional style with the flamenco in the most harmonious way. The critic has said: “Lyricism is their strongest point; their Nana was superb, their Rumores de la caleta and Malagueña contained excellent passages, and their Gitanerías was extremely rich and original.” Chalaura: live concert at Galileo Galilei. Their performance at the Palace of Abrantes, seat for the Italian Institute of Culture in Madrid, has given CONCUERDA Y MAS the opportunity to perform once again with the instruments of the Academia Cremonensis at Cremona in Italy.Contact: email@example.com
