The X International Colombian Chamber Music Festival will take place in Medellín next month. It has become one of the most frequented festivals on the international circuit, and an important stop for many musicians.
Italian pianist Gregorio Nardi will be the guest of honour this year, with two concerts on 3 and 4 October at the Teatro Pablo Tobon Uribe in Medellin, Colombia. One of the principal onjectives of the Festival is to present music by Colombian composers who have been unjustly neglected, so the first evening, Nardi’s recital will present works by Guillermo Uribe Holguín, Antonio Maria Valencia, Lucas Estrada, Luis Antonio Escobar, Luis Carlos Figueroa, and the first performance of Jet d’Eau by Carlos Posada Amador.
On the second evening Gregorio Nardi, along with the EAFIT Symphony Orchestra, will play two great Colombian masterworks for piano and orchestra: the romantic Concerto by Jesus Bermudez Silva and the first performance of the unfinished Concerto by Adolfo Mejía.
