The musicians Lina Tur Bonet, Sara Cabrera, Cristo Barrios, Ángel Luis Quintana and Javier Negrín will feature at the concert on Wednesday


Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the counsellor Enrique Arriaga. Next Wednesday, the 24th of March at 7:30 p.m., the Auditorium welcomes the concert Miradas (Glances) by Quantum Ensemble. Five musicians will perform this program during which pieces of female-composers of two centuries will be played. 

The musicians Lina Tur Bonet (violin), Sara Cabrera (flute), Cristo Barrios (clarinet), Ángel Luis Quintana (cello) and Javier Negrín (piano) will play during this concert compositions of Ethel Smyth (1858-1944), Cécile Chaminade (1857-1944), Germaine Tailleferre (1892-1983), Laura Vega (n. 1978) and Lili Boulanger (1893-1918).

The Quantum Ensemble thus brings together in this programme five women composers who, during the time-frame of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, show the creative richness of women who lived during that period. The concert offers D'un soir triste and D'un matin de printemps, two of Lili Boulanger's most popular chamber works, along with two other interesting pieces by Germaine Tailleferre: Trio for violin, cello and piano and Arabesque, a miniature for clarinet and piano.

The Quantum Ensemble will also play an arrangement of the popular flute concerto by Cécile Chaminade and the Variations on an original theme by Ethel Smyth, an interesting piano piece by the composer and leader of the suffragettes, a British women-only movement. Laura Vega's premièred Ni neu, a trio for violin, clarinet and piano that the Canary Islands-born composer wrote for the group, will also be performed.

The concert will last 75 minutes during which Martín Llade, radio presenter of Sinfonía de la mañana on Radio Clásica (RNE), will talk about the repertoire to contextualise the women-composers and their time.
