Musical performances in Alcalá 31

Exhibition Tell me who you are I by the artist Luis Gordillo, in the words of its curator Bea Espejo, creates a dynamic full of tensions and the Sala Alcalá 31 wants to take them further by proposing to visitors to combine the sense of sight and hearing. What better way to get to know or return to visit this exhibition accompanied by the music that the artist listens to while creating his works?

Luis Gordillo is one of the active members of the pictorial avant-garde and no less so are the musical styles that he takes as a reference and inspiration during his creative processes. In this way, the Sala Alcalá 31 will host musical shows for four Saturdays that function as a performance where, consecutively, three solo musicians (a cellist, a saxophonist and a violinist) will perform various pieces at different points of the exhibition space with a repertoire marked by jazz and contemporary classical pieces.

On the occasion of the extension of the temporary exhibition, we premiere Footnotes with… the artist Luis Gordillo, a musical proposal in which we can enjoy his work and the music he likes to listen to the most. Through the saxophonist we will approach jazz, with references to Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Thelonius Monk, John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, and other greats of this style. The violin and cello will set the rhythm with pieces by Igor Stravinsky, Bèla Bartok, György Ligeti, Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel.

For 4 Saturdays, 2 consecutive passes of 20 minutes each will be offered, between 12.00:14.00 and XNUMX:XNUMX. To attend, it is not necessary to reserve a ticket in advance (entry is free).
