Expressiveness, rigor and clarity are the distinctive features of this director, harpsichordist and musicologist who has led the historicist movement from its origins. Born in the United States, Christie has developed most of her activity researching and recovering small jewels from the French musical repertoire and she is largely responsible for the fact that today many fans know Marc-Antoine Charpentier and Jean-Philippe Rameau.

Anne-Sophie Mutter. Live from Yellow Loungue- The club album

“It’s not just an album, but a very special recording project for me.” Anne-Sophie Mutter is breaking down boundaries with her latest album “Live from Yellow Lounge – The Club Album”, which is available worldwide now!

Inspired by the huge success of her first Yellow Lounge in 2013, the new album was recorded live at two special Yellow Lounges in Berlin May 2015. “Yellow Lounge is a unique concept,” said Mutter. “It introduces young people to great music, in intimate settings that really bring performers and listeners close together.” By taking classical music out of the concert hall and into a different setting, Mutter strives to find new audiences. “All my life I wanted to keep in touch with an audience that is young, open-minded, maybe not even affiliated with classical music but curious about the genre. My Yellow Lounge concerts and the recording, which his released in August, is really all about that.”

On stage with Mutter were her longtime accompanist Lambert Orkis, the Mutter Virtuosi – a hand-picked ensemble of young alumni of the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation – and harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani.

Vena music

In season 14/15, the CNDM (National Dissemination Center Musical) has incorporated the Cycle of Concerts in Hospitals in Madrid into its programming, in co-production with the non-profit association Música en Vena (MeV). Since two years ago, MeV fills the city's hospitals with music in order to improve hospital stays for patients, family members and health personnel, also trying to generate a new circuit of spaces for music and musicians. Thanks to your collaboration and joint efforts, this cycle, which is having an excellent response, brings top-notch performers to those who cannot attend a conventional concert. Through twelve recitals with various formations —from the soloist to the orchestral ensemble—, internationally renowned artists are performing in four Madrid hospitals (San Carlos Clinic, Gregorio Maranon, 12 October and Iron Gate) Changing, altruistically, their usual settings for auditoriums and dialysis and chemotherapy rooms. The public, different from the one that usually occupies an auditorium seat, also shows a singular receptivity: the nearby musical experience, without ceasing to be an aesthetic pleasure, becomes an emotional balm without side effects.

Nucci: a legendary baritone

After the success of the two previous concerts in the Auditorium of this hospital, with the prestigious German pianist and conductor Christian Zacharias (who signed a baroque recital with works by Bach, Scarlatti and Antonio Soler) e Iris Azquinezer, young but already an important national cello figure, who performed his own works together with pieces by Bach and Cassadó, this Wednesday the legendary baritone Leo Nucci will arrive, accompanied by the soprano María José Moreno and the pianist Paolo Marcarini to sing some of the most famous arias and duets of one of the operatic titles that, definitely, they have given him greater joys: Rigoletto de Verdi, of which has been interpreted for more than 500 performances in all the great opera houses of the world. Nucci thus returns to the CNDM season after collecting glory at the Teatro de la Zarzuela within the XX Lied Cycle last season 13/14, with 45 minutes of tips and the public ecstatic and on their feet, on a date that in addition to being supportive is presented as another great musical milestone.

In 1977 sang for the first time in the Arena of Verona, where he has been participating regularly for more than thirty years. His interpretations of Rigoletto should be highlighted as, probably, the only baritone who has sung this Verdi role in all the most important theaters in the world, with more than five hundred official performances (the number 500, he performed it a year ago at the Vienna Staatsoper directed by Jesús López Cobos).
