Miramon Matinées: season 2017/2018

Tuesday, September 19th 2017

Saturday 30th September is the start of the Miramón Matinées 2017/2018 season at the Basque National Orchestra headquarters. The Orchestra's chamber music cycle, now in its 26th season, is a classic in the weekend musical offering which never ceases to innovate with its extensive range of sounds, myriad of scents and melodies that create an emotive story. There are 16 concerts in this cycle's season, supported from the start by the Kutxa Fundazioa.

Among the season's guest performers, the spotlight is on the San Sebastian pianist, Judith Jáuregui, who, with a solid international career as a soloist (playing with distinguished symphony orchestras or in recital), debuts in the Matinées with pieces from her latest album, "X", and part of the repertoire with which she will shortly make her debut in London; also from San Sebastian, Ainara Ortega and Iñaki Salvador, musicians with an extensive joint career (with projects such as Kantaginjazz) who, in a voice and piano recital, shall reconsider an array of musical scores from a jazz perspective; and the Basque children's choir, Leioa Kantika Korala, which shall open the cycle on the 30th with a contemporary repertoire featuring Basque and classical composers of choral music such as Rautavaara. The chamber music offering, the focal point of the cycle, draws from the work of musicians from the Basque National Orchestra alongside their symphonic endeavours. In the current season, their overture includes Stravinsky's "The Soldier's Tale", performed by a chamber group and narrated by Andoni Alemán; a concert composed for a chamber orchestra, titled "From the Galant style to Classicism", which includes an unedited score from one of Mozart's works; and concerts by small wind and string groups from which pairings of unique composers, such as those formed by Joaquín Turina and Johannes Brahms, or Philipp Glass and Dmitri Shostakovich, emerge.

The concerts will take place on Saturdays at 11:00, at the Basque National Orchestra headquarters in Miramon. In order to arrive with ease at the concerts, the Basque National Orchestra is providing a free bus service for the audience of the Matinéess. It departs at 10:25 from Gipuzkoa Plaza 4 and stops in Sancho El Sabio 18 and Avda. de Madrid 34.
