North East Guitar Festival 2016

Iberian Colours

Northern Rock Foundation Hall

Maria Camahort: Guitar
Violeta García: Voice and Violin
Laura Ruhí-Vidal: Soprano

Iberian Colours is a journey through the relationship between Spanish composers and influences from Iberia’s traditional music.

Traditional music in Spain has long been an important source of inspiration for many Spanish composers: De Falla, Mompou, Granados, Albéniz, and Toldrà, to name a few.

More intensely since the end of the 19th-century and especially through the 20th as a consequence of Musical Nationalism – Spanish composers have been inspired by the lyrics, melodies, rhythms and harmonies of traditional music. The guitar, as the predominant instrument of Spanish folk heritage, was one of their main sources of inspiration.

Maria Camahort (guitar and arrangements), Violeta García (voice and violin) and Laura Ruhí-Vidal (soprano) present a captivating programme including a wide range of Spanish composers together with traditional songs from different regions of Spain and Spanish speaking cultures.

This journey comprises passionate flavours from the Iberian Peninsula, exploring the touch of seductive love, revenge and sorrow, and including some insights of the Catalan traditional culture.
