The concert is framed within the cultural activities organized by the Atlantic Romanesque Intervention Plan, with the aim of promoting knowledge as well as boosting and spreading the heritage of the areas where action is being taken.
The Atlantic Romanesque is a cross-border project for the cultural heritage preservation in which Castilla and León Regional Government, Iberdrola Spain Foundation, the Secretariat of State for Culture of Portugal and the Santa María la Real of the Historical Heritage Foundation take part.
The Atlantic Romanesque Plan intervention at the church of San Martín in San Martín de Castañeda, Zamora was not finished by conditioning and transforming the sacristy into a chapel adapted to the worshippers’ needs and uses.
The work of the team and of the responsible people continues and it is now focused on transforming the church into a source and a reference of cultural boosting. Therefore, during the last two years the church has hosted several concerts carried out by Dulsica and the Old Music Group of the University of Valladolid.
This year it is time for the chamber music ensemble Quartet NEUMA, which is going to fill the church with its chords on Wednesday, August 31st, thanks to the collaboration of the MusaE project and Galende Town Council.
The concert is going to start at 8:30p.m., and the group is going to interpret nine pieces of such authors like Andrey Rubtsov, Anton Reicha, Eugène Bozza, Adolphe Wouters or Anze Rozman. Estela Córcoles, Alejandra Villalobos, Anna Pujol and Raquel Díaz will interpret them and give colour to the lyrics. Entrance is free and subject to the capacity of the facility.
Quartet NEUMA is a chamber music ensemble which has shown a very peculiar way of working and understanding music from its beginnings. It has an original mise en scene, integrating several writers’ texts and poems in order to motivate the audience imagination.
