II Music Cycle in the National Library of Spain

Chopinian romanticism in Spain

September 27, 2019 until January 12, 2020

The Aragonese fortepianist Patricia García stars in the inaugural concert of the II Music Cycle in the National Library of Spain with a recital that is a real discovery. On the one hand, the instrument itself, the fortepiano, which without being a stranger is not yet common in the concert halls and, on the other, the repertoire, a tour of the Spanish “chopinianos” in which it sounds again some Composers who were inspired by Chopin’s music and composed in the style of Polish genius, a paradigm of musical Romanticism.

Inspired by the romantic model was also the Aragonese Valentín Carderera, whose figure recovers the BNE at the Valentín Carderera exhibition (1796-1880). Cartoonist, collector and romantic traveler , curated by José María Lanzarote.

The concert serves as a preamble to the exhibition, held in collaboration with the Center for Hispanic European Studies, which can be visited from September 27, 2019 until January 12, 2020.
