(Presentation, Málaga Clásica Talents, bios)

The closing concert of Málaga Clásica unites the characteristics that define the theme of the festival’s eighth edition: “now”. In this walk through the musical landscape one can find early untypical works by Shostakovich, full of melody and simplicity, like his pieces for two violins and piano. One also encounters in the octet, a self-labelled modern Shostakovich, with his feet planted in the present but looking to the future. The traditional music, present in Piazzolla - and whose “seasons” serve as a reinterpretation of the seasons themselves (after Vivaldi’s classic) - are inspirations which lay in Jesus Reina’s music, who intertwines the harmonic structures of the Baroque period with modern counterpunctal lines and traditional rhythms, adding to the chamber ensemble an instrument of great tradition in Andalucia and the rest of Spain, the cornet.
