The 69th edition of the Granada Festival will open with this poignant Requiem, in the Cathedral of Granada, as a tribute to the victims of the Covid-19 pandemic, with the Orquesta y Coro Ciudad de Granada, conducted by Andrea Marcon, who will complete his artistic tenure with this sacred concert, and a stellar vocal quartet made up with the North American soprano Nadine Sierra and the Spanish singers Carlos Mena (countertenor), Xabier Anduaga (tenor) and Carlos Álvarez (bass-baritone).
