The 2015 edition of the Festival de Música de la Vila de Rialp started on July 14th with the piano recital of Ludovica Vicenti, winner of the I Concurso Internacional de Piano Romántico “Mario Calado”, with works by Clementi, Chopin and Schumann.
On August 1st, the Homage to Paco de Lucía by Pedro Navarro filled Rialp with flamenco, transforming the Salón de la Plaça de Dalt into an authentic “tablao”. While the classical flamenco was represented by Mayte Martín (voice) and Juan Ramón Caro (guitar) on August 14th, with master works of the flamenco repertoire, fallen into disuse, there were also precious songs never heard before in voices of today.
The fado took over in the Iglesia de Rialp on the night of August 8th with the concert of the guitar trio of Mario Pacheco and this same venue welcomed on the 12th, the recital of Mikhail Ovrutsky (violin) and Rinko Hama (piano), with works by Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Franck.
The Orquesta de Cámara Terrassa 48, with Quim Térmes as conductor and first violin, performed on August 15th a programme with works by Fàbrega, Casellas, Mozart, Boccherini and Brahms, while the Versus Quartet performed works by Barber, Bloch, Glass and Beethoven on August 16th.
On August 22nd Artur Blasco, collector of musical treasures of the Pyrenees, together with the guitar player Yannick, performed “Pels camins del cançoner”, a selection of songs from the Pyrenees.
In September, the piano recital of the winner of the II Concurso Internacional de Piano Romántico “Mario Calado” and “Clàsics dels Clàsics” took place, a programme featuring the trio composed of Claudi Armany (flute player), Gian Maria Bonino (piano) and Guillermo Pastrana (violoncello), with works by Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven.
