The Asturian musician will perform Bach's 'Partita No. 6' and Brahms' 'Sonata No. 3'.


The Auditorio de Tenerife is offering a concert by the young pianist Martín García García on Tuesday, May 21st. The event of the Chamber Music Cycle starts at 7:30 p.m. The programme comprises the works Partita No. 6 in E minor, BWV 830, by Johann Sebastian Bach and Sonata No. 3 in F minor, Op. 5 by Johannes Brahms. 

The Asturian pianist will play this composition of Bach, the last of his harpsichord partitas, written in 1731. While it follows the basic structure of Baroque dance suites, it also departs from the traditional framework. It incorporates seven movements, beginning with a Toccata divided into three parts that include an episode in a three-voice fugue in the middle. This monumental and innovative work represents the series's culmination in its immensity of proportions, harmonic depth, technical difficulty, and expressive character.

The recital continues with another monumental piano work: Brahms' Sonata No. 3 in F minor, Op. 5. This particular piece solidified Brahms' status as Beethoven's absolute heir during his third period while still maintaining his own identity and originality. The piano writing is extremely dense, clearly reaffirming Brahms' unique character. Brahms began composing the second movement first, inspired by the verses of writer Otto Julius Inkermann. The sonata is divided into five movements and displays the legacy of Bach and Beethoven.

Martín García García was born in Gijón in 1996. In 2023, he gave roughly 80 performances worldwide, including his debuts in Korea, Mexico, and Brazil. He has also visited many countries to give concerts and perform with orchestras such as the NHK Symphony, Seoul Philharmonic, Hamburg Symphoniker, Warsaw Philharmonic, Lithuanian National Symphony, and the Orchestra of Brasilia.

García García has obtained significant global distinctions, such as first place at the '2021 Cleveland International Piano Competition or third place in the '2021 International Chopin Piano Competition. In 2022, he also released his first album, 'Chopin and His Máster', produced by the artist and recorded in the hall that the Fazioli piano factory has in Sacile (Italy).
