The soundtrack of hope.
One more year, and it's been four, in Vilagarcía the clasclás resounds. The sound that our international classical music festival offers us through its program, which this year includes seven concerts and an ambitious program of masterclasses. But also the clasclas of the applause of the public that celebrates, perhaps now with more eagerness and joy than ever, the posibility to enjoy live music.
The music that the clasclás showed that it is suitable for all audiences. That was precisely one of the foundational objectives of the festival and that is being one of its greatest things. The clasclás is a transversal festival that allows us to get closer to the music, although, in principle, it might seem alien to someone. Thanks to the clasclás today we happily know that it is not like that, that music excites and reaches everyone in the same way.
Among the news of this fourth edition, stands out the presence in the artistic direction of the festival of the Guarneri Trio Prague, an emblematic group of European chamber music, which this year celebrates its 35th anniversary on stage and with the same line up.
I also underline the presence of five trios formed of students from five of the best high music conservatories in Spain to participate in the masterclasses program. An initiative that comes to reaffirm the commitment of the clasclás, not only with the diffusion of classical music, but also with the training and support of the musicians who are taking their first steps in this exciting world.
I can only thank the help and commitment shown to sponsors and collaborators and encourage you to enjoy everything that the clasclás offers us, which is a lot. We live in times of renewed hope. It's time to put a soundtrack on them. And this one that the festival proposes to us could not be more suitable. Carpe Diem.
