Mexico has a long and rich musical history which has always been a reflection of the different periods by which the country has gone through. You can find beautiful and complex compositions from the viceregal, colonial, revolutionary, modern and contemporary periods and it goes way beyond and deeper from what we usually listen in the streets or popular performances.
In a constant effort to promote and show México to the rest of the world and the richness of Mexico´s musical heritage, Lili Nogueras (soprano), Maricarmen Larregui (pianist) , Andres Tapia (tenor) and Javier San Vicente (baritone), have designed this concert as part of a series of performances in the Bajío Region that alternate different songs from Mexican composers such as María Grever, Alfonso Esparza Oteo, Ricardo Palmerín, Agustín Lara, Manuel M Ponce, looking to broaden the knowledge and joy of mexican music.
The most profound search of this efforts is the belief that through art it is possible to strengthen a national identity. Art as an important influencer into creating a mexican unity and pride. Art as a light leading into higher social conscience.
This concert is a compilation of songs from Mexico´s romantic XX Century period, where composers looked to create genuine Art Songs combining beautifully written lyrics with musical forms that some times were based on popular forms and some others influenced by world wide composers.
The performance´s format is an intimate piano – voice dialogue, enhancing at all times the Song, its poetry and musical piano arrangements. The public and the musicians will have a close connection and together will experience a romantic getaway during a 60 minute lapse.
The concert Colores Vocales de Mexico, Canciones de Arte mexicanas, takes place on Saturday November 9th at 6pm in the Quetzal hall at Biblioteca Pública San Miguel Allende, Reloj 50, Centro. Tickets are 200 pesos and can be purchased at Teatro Santa Ana´s box office.
