It will be held for the first time this year, from 12 February to 14 May, with four concerts.
The anniversary concert organised four years ago by the flautist and professor at the San Javier Conservatory, Mariano Bas, has evolved into the I International Chamber Music Series, “San Javier en Clásica”, which will be held for the first time this year, from 12 February to 14 May, with four concerts. The Councillor for Culture, David Martinez, the artistic coordinator of the cycle, Mariano Bas and the director of the Conservatory of San Javier, Francisco Javier Martinez announced today this initiative “that comes to fill the cultural niche of classical music in San Javier,” said the mayor of Culture, who recalled that the four concerts will be free admission until full capacity.
Mariano Bas explained that the series, which has a strong local character combined with international presences as resounding as the pianist Ludmil Angelov, will begin on 12 February with the fourth edition of the concert held for its anniversary and this year wants to dedicate to the legendary flutist Jean-Pierre Rampal, of whom he became a disciple, coinciding with the centenary of his birth. Mariano Bas will be accompanied by Darling Dyle on violin, concertmaster of the OSRM, Lesster Mejías, former professor at the San Javier Conservatory and viola soloist with the ADDA orchestra in Alicante, and Miguel Ángel Ros, professor at the Murcia Conservatory of Music in Alcazar, on cello. The concert, in aid of Cáritas, will be held in the church of San Francisco Javier.
The rest of the concerts will take place in the auditorium of the “Príncipe de Asturias” cultural centre in Santiago de la Ribera, where on 4 March a viola and piano recital will be held under the title “Fairy Tale”, with Rumen Cvetkovm, professor at the San Javier Conservatory, accompanied by the internationally renowned pianist Ludmil Angelov. The concert series will continue on 2 April with the Murcia Brass Quintet, Murcia’s leading chamber music orchestra, offering an “American Night” with a selection of American composers. The cycle will be brought to a close by young student musicians from the conservatories of San Javier, Caravaca and Murcia in a pioneering concert which has been called “Jóvenes en Clásica”, explained Mariano Bas.
Mariano Bas thanked the involvement of the City Council of San Javier and the Conservatory to make possible this cycle that brings to San Javier classical music in small format with chamber orchestra. The councillor David Martínez expressed his confidence in the success of the initiative “due to the support shown in San Javier for classical music in previously programmed events” while the head of the San Javier Conservatory of Music, Francisco Javier Martínez highlighted the presence of local teachers and students and the connection between different conservatories that makes the new musical cycle possible, which is born with a vocation for continuity.
