The Eloquent Viola

The great German violist Tabea Zimmermann has been part of a duo with Javier Perianes –fom Huelva– for a few years now, a time in which they have reviewed the most classical repertoire ever written for both instruments but have also explored new avenues. All this is brought together in this recital in which, in addition to approaching Schumann and Brahms and playing solo Spanish works created in the last five years (a piece for piano by the unforgettable and now deceased Joan Guinjoan and another for viola by Mauricio Sotelo), they return to a music that they have made their own, that of Piazzolla and that of Falla, those Spanish Songs that serve Zimmermann to show the eloquent capacity of his instrument: assuming the part of the voice, his viola seems to speak to us.
