GUITARRISIMO | 'Cifras Imaginarias': Music for Two Vihuelas

Fri 8 June 2018, 7.00pm
Bolívar Hall
54, Grafton Way
United Kingdom

'A real delight.' Early Music Reviews +

'Cifras Imaginarias' is the first project to invent a songbook for two vihuelas that could have, hypothetically, been published around 1560 in Seville or Valladolid. A unique opportunity to hear the marvellous poliphonic music of the 16th century in the hands of two of today's internationally pre-eminent vihuela players, Ariel Abramovich and Jacob Heringman, who present works from their latest album on the Arcana label Cifras Imaginarias: Música para tañer a dos vihuelas. The Bolívar Hall provides a beautiful acoustic in which to hear this wonderfully intimate programme full of contemplation and tranquility - the perfect way to kick off your weekend!

'Canyigueral’s sovereign in such flamboyance, taking collective breaths away. Stunned'. Dr Simon Jenner

During the period between 1918 and 1978 the great composer and pianist Frederic Mompou composed a set of fifteen pieces called Cançons i danses. The particularity of these works is the Catalan composer’s ability to weave masterpieces out of his own native folklore. Pianist Maria Canyigueral presents the world premiere of ‘Avant-guarding Mompou’, an exploration of Mompou’s Cançons i danses which combines the original pieces with new creations by contemporary composers Antón García Abril, Victor Estapé, Josep Maria Guix, Joan Magrané (Spain), Moritz Eggert (Germany), Konstantia Gourzi (Greece), Jirí Gemrot (Czec Republic), Nicolas Bacri (France) and Joseph Phibbs (UK).
