Reinterpreting the classics

This series took place onFrom to

The term “classic” was coined in Latin to refer to those composers who, for their particular perfection, deserved to be imitated. But, with the passage of time, it transcended the educational sphere to be applied to those works of art that would take on a timeless dimension. In the words of the philosopher Gadamer, the classic is that which does not require interpretation, but that “says something about the present as if specifically to it.” In this way, the classical goes beyond the barriers of time. It is situated in a perpetual present and is capable of dialoguing with the present. Based on this premise, this series of four concerts presents a set of dialogues between modern composers directly inspired by maestros of the past.
