Concierto Cementerio Almudena

The Cuarteto Casals will put on a concert in Madrid on August 31st. The venue chosen for this event is the Almudena cemetery which you can get to with no trouble thanks to the city’s public transportation system. This event is part of the excellent cultural agenda offered by the Veranos de la Villa.

The origin of the quartet

In 1997 four alumni from Madrid’s Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofia decided to join forces and bring the music of their favorite artists to the stage. Throughout their artistic life, they have been able to play on legendary stages such as New York’s Carnegie Hall, Tokyo’s Suntory Hall and Paris’ Cité de la Musique.

They have also produced 11 albums in which they perform the work of well-known composers such as Beethoven, Haydn and Schubert. They have never hesitated to give well-deserved recognition to other, lesser known artists, such as Kurtág. Among the recognitions they have been awarded, the National Music Award (2006) and the National Award for Catalonian Culture (2016) are of special note.

The concert is at 9:30 PM on August 31st and is free while space is available. The concert program is as follows:

  • Haydn string quartet No. 5 in F minor, Op. 20.
  • Beethoven string quartet No. 6 in B flat major, Op. 18.
  • Shostakovick string quartet No. 8 in C minor, Op. 110.

You must not miss this opportunity to hear the best music performed to perfection. The venue where the concert is to be held radiates a certain level of mystery which will surely become the silent guest at such a special, highly recommended concert for those who wish to spend a captivating evening.
