Juventudes Musicales de Madrid returns, yet another season, to maintain its level of excellence in the concert series organised in the Auditorio Nacional of the capital.
In this way, throughout the 2013-2014 season, the institution proposes a total of 16 programmes, opening in September with Zubin Mehta and the Orquesta del Maggio Musicale Florentino and soloists like Martha Argerich, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Mischa Mayski, Maxim Vengerov, Lorin Maazel, Leonidas Kavakos, Ivo Pogorelich, to mention but a few.
Mehta is a regular conductor of the JJMM Madrid, as shown by the fact that he was also entrusted with the inauguration of the previous season.
In fact, the events of 2012-2013 harvested great success and counted with some of the most important names of the international music scenario. Pianists of the level of Maria Joao Pires or Murray Perahia visited Madrid with the Kammerorchester Basel and the Academy of Saint Martin in the Fields, respectively.
Likewise, Jean-Yves Thibaudet arrived at the stage of the Auditorio Nacional conducted by James Conlon and together with the Deutsches Symphonie Orchester Berlin. In turn, William Christie, maestro of maestros, took charge of the fabulous oratorio Belshazzar by Handel with a top level vocal cast.
For the 2013-2014 season, the same number of events as last season, have been programmed. Their quality is guaranteed by soloists such as Marta Argerich, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Juan Diego Flórez, Xavier de Maestre, Sol Gabetta, Mischa Maiski, Lorin Maazel, Gautier Capuçon or Igo Pogorelich, who are going to integrate this interesting programme, finishing on June 7th 2014 with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte Carlo, maestro Gianluigi Gelmetti and the great American pianist Nicholas Angelich.
In turn, the institution which has always committed itself to support young talents, maintains its youth scholarship and aid programme to widen their studies abroad in the most prestigious centres in the world.
