Clasclás 2022:  molto vivace!

The clasclás International Classical Music Festival presented its 5th edition under the motto molto vivace! which reflects the vertiginous and consolidated success obtained by the event throughout the four previous editions, the last two held under the COVID 19 pandemic. The festival was held from Monday, June 27 to Saturday, July 2, 2022. This V edition was developed again under the artistic direction of the Guarneri Trio of Prague, an internationally renowned group from the world of classical music with 36 years of uninterrupted professional career in the same initial formation. An emblematic and legendary group for a unique event. The clasclás distributed its activity in four different programs.

 

The festival modified in 2021, and with great success, the design of the initial editions towards an Artistic Program, based on groups already formed in origin, with extensive professional experience mixed with new artists on the rise both at the solo level, and in groups of different composition.

 

The Masterclasses Program, newly created in the IV edition, continued betting on the realization of institutional agreements in collaboration with different centers of higher music studies, among which are the highest level throughout the country. On the other hand, in this V edition the program of the Masterclasses was addressed to the instrumental specialties of violin, cello and piano as well as duets formed by different combinations of these instruments.

 

We do not forget the need to continue betting on the beloved Social and Community Program that has caused so much joy to all those who participate in the clasclás, attendees, participants and organizers. A program designed to bring classical music closer to different groups in our society that, for different reasons or causes, do not have the facilities to approach it.

 

In this V edition we complete the offer with the new Clasclás A Pé de Rúa (program at street level) in which different groups from the Professional Conservatory and the Municipal School of Music performed in the squares and streets of Vilagarcía, involving the entire population of the town in the clasclás.

Geneva Brass

Like the famous “Swiss Army Knife”, Geneva Brass is a multi-talented chamber music group. Its warm, bright sound lends itself equally well to a chiseled Bach fugue, to the soft murmur of a Cosma ballad, or to a traditional Alpine horn tune. They know how to respond to an organ or a big band, but also fill themselves with sweetness to accompany a choir, a pan flute or even a harp.

Clasclas Social

Community, provided that the conditions of the epidemiological situation allow it, which has caused so much joy to all those who participate in the clasclás, attendees, participants and organizers. A program designed to bring classical music closer to different groups in our society that, for different reasons or causes, do not have the facilities to approach it.
