An Excellent Spanish Music Performance at the Radio Hall
The exquisite performance - not only technically speaking, but also from the point of view of the interpretation - was based on the compositions of Cassado, Ondarra, Nin, Larrauri, Donostia and, of course, De Falla, which I listened to with great pleasure. De Falla's famous suite, whose version for mezzo-soprano is also known, crowned the concert.
More than this, I appreciated the round, generous and adequate Spanish rhythm and the collaboration between the two young artists, who seemed to boast a nice friendship which resonated in their performing style - there was joy, simplicity and charisma.
The concert was held before an almost full house - and it must be emphasized that this does not happen frequently with chamber music concerts - they applauded enthusiastically (it is true, they did it even when they should not have: after each part of a sonata or suite, for instance), and it was sheer delight to listen to such excellent work performed, which I would like to hear more often.
