THE MARIA CAMAHORT QUINTET
We always try to include a recital that is a little different – this is it! The Maria Camahort Quintet play music by Spanish composers with a very original approach sharing with the audience the vivid colours, earthy textures and rhythms of Spanish musical art. Created in 2011 out of a desire to increase the possibilities in chamber music the group includes violin, cello, guitar, percussion and voices, the originality of the ensemble is given by the intense collaboration between musicians from different musical traditions. The nature of this concert means we may try to present the evening in a rather less formal way than usual.......watch out for more details !
Presented with generous support from our patrons.
