José Miguel Pérez-Sierra returns to Bilbao Musika-Music


The rising Spanish master José Miguel Pérez-Sierra will start the month of March directing again in Bilbao, this time at Symphony. The appointment is at the festival Music-Music that turns the city of the Guggenheim into an international music capital by filling up with performances in a weekend, an inexcusable attraction for music lovers. After succeeding in the lyrical season of the Asociación Bilbaína de Amigos de la Ópera (ABAO-OLBE) with one of the masterpieces of Vincenzo Bellini, La Sonnambula, José Miguel Pérez-Sierra returns to Bilbao with two programs “of great symphonic flight and that allow to get the best out of the Basque orchestra and its teachers”, according to the teacher: the day 4 March will direct Prelude and death of love, selection loaded with lyricism and opera brilliance Tristan and Isolde, from Richard Wagner, followed by the intense symphonic poem Death and Transfiguration, On. 24, from Richard Strauss. Both composers are the ones who also articulate the next day's program: Saturday 5 March will be the turn of the Opera Overture Tannhäuser (Wagner), work to be heard alongside the symphonic poem Also sprach Zarathustra, On. 30 (Strauss). “They are masterpieces that require great technical mastery and in which the orchestra always has to go to a”, Pérez-Sierra points out.
