The emblematic auditorium of the Fundación Unicaja building in Malaga, the Sala María Cristina, will host a new season of concerts with a programme full of classical music with pieces from some of the greatest composers and famous arias performed by renowned soloists from the classical world.
However, that is not all; there will also be a touch of flamenco provided by guitarrist Pepe Habichuela and singer Kiki Morente (29 September); a sprinkling of pop with the presentation of the new recording by Fran Perea 'Viaja la Palabra' (4 October); and a splash of jazz fusion and Spanish brass with the pianist Chano Domínguez in 'Pura Oliva' (17 November).
A glance across other genres, albeit with classical music at the core, will complete the agenda. Albéniz and Debussy will be performed by pianist Rosa Torres-Pardo, winner of the Nacional De Música award 2017 (6 October) and Schumann and Mendelssohn will flow from the instruments of the Trío Arbós, also Nacional de Música award winners in 2013 (10 and 23 November).
Promúsica, the orchestral project directed by Javier Claudio which includes around a hundred young musicians, will start the autumn season on 20 October with a repertoire of soundtracks from some popular musicals such as La La Land, The Addams Family, The Wizard of Oz etc. and finishing the first quarter with a Christmas Concert with the Santa María de la Victoria choir. This special Christmas concert will include works by Mozart and soundtracks from Walt Disney films and will be on 22 December.
Musical scores from antiquity will be performed by the Orquesta Barroca de Málaga with traditional instruments taking the audience back a several hundred years with excerpts from Handel's Julius Caesar. Soprano Rosa María Caballero will be narrating and singing seductive arias in her role as Cleopatra. The orchestra will return on 14 December to celebrate Christmas with Bach, Telemann and Handel.
