IT ALL BEGINS WITH A DREAMDeLis Duo & Tamara Alexeeva

This program offers a very interesting timbral richness that is rare in chamber music; the warmth of the cello voice, the purity of the sung voice and the wide sonority of the piano surround and play with each other, thus creating a unique sound space.
This selection of pieces is a small sample, with which we will walk through the lyrical Romanticism of some of the composers from the countries with the most musical and cultural tradition, such as the Italian composer Paolo Tosti, the Germans Johannes Brahms and Richard Wagner or the Russians Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Sergei Rachmaninov with songs of exceptional lyricism and depth, also passing through a very own and intimate compositional style of Frederic Mompou that without trying to innovate, with influences from French impressionists such as Gabriel Fauré or Francis Poulenc and With the heritage of Catalan popular music, he ended up creating this peculiar sound world that he himself called “the least composed music in the world. I don’t compose, I decompose. ”
And we will end this path with some songs from the so-called “musical nationalisms”, a combination of folklore and classical music, including an exquisite Bachiana Brasileira by the composer Heitor Villa-Lobos with a style that is also very personal and idiosyncratic of what he would say “my music. It’s natural, like a waterfall ”, and the Seven Popular Spanish Songs by Manuel de Falla, the most important Spanish composer of the 20th century, in which he brings together popular songs from different regions of the country.
