The lost letters of Lucia Lacarra

Guipuzcoan Lucía Lacarra made her professional debut with the Víctor Ullate Ballet at the age of fifteen. Principal dancer with the Ballets de Marseille, San Francisco, the Munich Opera and Dortmund, she has won the world’s top dance awards. Lacarra has just set up her own company, made up of ten dancers. Her first production is Lost Letters, choreographed by Matthew Golding and telling a moving and evocative story based on a real letter written by World War I artilleryman Frank Bracey to his wife, Win. The show explores the theme of lost connections and invites us to reflect on the power of communication through the technical skill and artistic expressiveness of the performers. The innovative and dynamic choreography, combined with music by Rachmaninov and Richter, creates an atmosphere that will transport the audience at the Generalife to a world of emotions and shared experiences. Show sponsored by Securitas.

The swan song at the Royal Hospital

The German baritone Konstantin Krimmel will perform a completely Schubertian programme in the Royal Hospital’s Patio de los Mármoles, accompanied by Daniel Heide on piano, which will culminate with The Swan Song. Krimmel is one of the young talents who have arrived in the world of romantic lied in recent years with overwhelming force. Just into his thirties, the German baritone already has a significant career in the field of opera, but it is in the field of concert songs that he seems to place more emphasis, as four of his five recordings are dedicated to the genre. The Swan Song is a cycle created with the last songs left on Schubert’s desk when he died, one of the mainstays of the repertoire of any singer worth his salt. Krimmel will complete it with other late songs by Schubert, written in the years of the musician’s fullness and absolute maturity.

A Morente in La Chumbera

The Morente family is characterised by an inclination towards beauty as a global concept of art, towards the exploration and interpolation of flamenco styles in such a way that the singing is resolved by itself, as if an internal logic were at work in each style, and which is forced by a being who acts only as a vehicle channelling harmony. In this way we can understand Kiki Morente, son and younger brother of a dynasty where singing is a matter alien to form and gains consistency in the course of the act itself, the concert. The surname imposes, but Kiki Morente, singer, guitarist, composer, has inherited the ability and intuition to update the genre without renouncing its origins, the art of flamenco. High poetry in pure music. Concert sponsored by Fundación Caja Rural.

And at the FEX…

At 9:00 p.m., the Plaza de la Libertad in Pampaneira will become the epicenter of a global musical encounter with the concert of Atash, the group acclaimed as the Best Music Band in the World for seven consecutive years in Austin. With its Sun & Moon show, Atash brings to Granada a fusion of sounds from South Asia, the Middle East, and North and West Africa, skillfully mixed with elements of rock and jazz. With the participation of international musicians such as Mohammad Firoozi, John Moon and Roberto Paolo Riggio, and the outstanding presence of Susana Sánchez as a guest artist in flamenco dance, this event promises a night of irresistible rhythms and cross-cultural collaborations that capture the essence of contemporary global music.

At 10:00 p.m. in the Plaza del Santo Cristo in the town of Torre-Cardela in the Los Montes region, Laura Marchal will offer the recital La Teoría de los Afectos. Accompanied by Victor Franco on flamenco guitar and Jesús Campos on percussion, Marchal’s repertoire will include songs such as Buscando el origen and Vivimos para olvidar, reflecting her deep knowledge and passion for traditional and contemporary flamenco. She is in collaboration with AIEnRUTa-Flamencos and supported by the Fundación «la Caixa», the FEX’s sponsoring entity.
