The Centro Nacional de Difusión Musical (CNDM) is committed to strengthening the Spanish repertory of string quartets, as one of the most important and richest channels of musical creation of recent years. To this end, it has commissioned a new piece by the master Antón García Abril, one of the most outstanding composers of his generation.
The group named after this great musician will premier his Cuarteto n. 2 “La misteriosa forma del tiempo” and another recently-created piece, Rubaiyat(2010), written for this group and a soprano, which on this occasion will be Isabel Rey, who has already premiered several songs of this Aragón-born composer. Completing the concert is a selection of the beautiful arrangements for soprano and quartet that the German composer Aribert Reimann did in 1996, from Felix Mendelssohn's Lieder.
