Tribute to Arrieta in the 200 anniversary of his birth

Tribute to Arrieta

the soprano Sabina Puértolas, mezzosoprano Maite Beaumont, the tenor Jose Luis Sola and pianist Ruben Fernandez Aguirre will be the protagonists of the concert ‘Navarra is music’ to be held in the Teatro de la Zarzuela the next Saturday 13 of March to 20h00. It is a unique musical gathering that takes advantage of a emotional tribute to the famous Navarrese composer Emilio Arrieta - with absolute premieres included and when they are fulfilled 200 years of his birth– for review more than a century of music hand in hand with other great composers of that land who have contributed so much genius to Spanish and universal music.

In the first part, a beautiful sample of songs by three outstanding Navarrese musicians of the 19th and 20th centuries: Felipe Gorriti, Jesus Garcia Leoz Y Felix lavilla, that have poems by Lope de Vega, Miguel de Fuenllana, Bilintx, Felipe Gorriti (atrib.), Juan Paredes, Federico Garcia Lorca, as well as texts arising from popular tradition.

The second stage of the concert will focus entirely on the work of Arrieta, with a meticulous selection of fragments of operas, a prayer and the premiere of two songs —One in Italian and one in Spanish—. Four important lyrical titles make up the program: ‘San Franco de Sena’ with libretto by Jose Estremera, ‘Marina’ of Francisco Camprodon Y Miguel Ramos Carrión, as well as 'El Capitan Negrero' or 'Dos Coronas', both with book of Antonio García Gutiérrez. The block is completed with a romantic ‘Religious Meditation’ with text by Adelardo López de Ayala, that the universal Navarrese interpreted for the first time Julian Gayarre.

Included in the present Cycle of Concerts of the Teatro de la Zarzuela, performers and pianist have known how to draw an ambitious but clever musical proposal what turns out simply unique.
