by the Tremendo Cuarteto
Pianist and singer Maria-Angeles Cuevas has brought together several artists from different backgrounds, all willing to share their passion for Spanish music and dance.
Her roots and her musical career have led her to create a show which reflects the colourful Spanish culture with its various styles and characteristics.
By combining their talents, diverse experiences and specificities, these artists have brought about synergies between classical music and folk music.
By means of singing, together with dancing and playing the guitar, the piano, the cello, the drums, they succeed in giving a somewhat “popular” touch to the classical works of Manuel de Falla, Joaquin Nin and Isaac Albéniz among others.
They propose a new look on the so called “scholarly” and sophisticated music, drawing a new strength from the heart of folklore.
This popular inspiration is reinforced by the “copla”, the equivalent of the Portuguese “fado” and the South American “bolero”. Its tunes tell about life, love, emotions of the past and illusions of the future.
Speaking of Spanish culture obviously brings up Federico Garcia Lorca, famous composer, poet and painter, good friend of Salvator Dali and Luis Bunuel.
Lorca’s melodies, whether sung, recited or danced, put into light an intense period in the history of Spain, that of the Repression while Spanish artists rebel and express themselves at the risk of their lives.
Iberian Dreams is a musical and highly emotional journey full of colours and charm, in the course of which the audience discovers the treasures of the Spanish culture.
