Cita en Maestranza
February, 8 p.m.
- Hall: Sala Principal
From one woman to another
There are few things as exciting in music as witnessing a singer’s tribute to her “maestras”, those artists who made music a banner “to wave their bravery, independence and emotion across the wide world”
In a heart to heart, Sole Giménez sings to María Dolores Pradera, Rosana, and Violeta Parra or to Mari Trini. With the gratitude of an outstanding student, she has taken on a legacy and keeps it alive today. Songs like Corazón al Sur or La flor de la canela are heard again in the delicate and fine-drawn voice which sold more than 3 million albums when she was the vocalist of the Spanish group “Presuntos Implicados” for over two decades. Her success as a soloist has been in place for more than 10 years.
Accompanied by a chamber ensemble of eight musicians, Sole Giménez gives us a delicious recital, wonderfully nuanced and in a diversity of musical styles. A recital of overwhelming sensitivity which affirms the capacity of women to thrill us with a story sung in three minutes.
