The Carmen Cloister will host the first joint performance of Raquel García-Tomas’ three works of baroque inspiration.

The nationally and internationally celebrated composer who won the National Music Award in 2020 presents a programme that will take us on a journey through the works of Bach and Monteverdi as they dialogue with her own compositions: My Old Gramophone #2 (2019) and […]così mostraste a lei i vivi ardori miei[…] (2015 - Rev. 2018).

We will bring the evening to a close with the premier of the revised version of Suite of Myself, a work commissioned by the Festival. In this case, we will discover it anew as interpreted by a chamber ensemble (vocal quarter, string quartet and piano), providing it a more intimate and nuanced tone. Suite of Myself recently premiered in Barcelona’s L’Auditori to much acclaim from the audience and critics alike.

Considered to be one of the finest creators of our times, García-Tomás invites us to “unwind with the stars under a night sky”, a quote from a Monteverdi madrigal after which this concert is named.
