Sextet

SPANISH MUSIC FOR STRING QUINTET AND CASTANETS

Press review of  Norte de Castilla newspaper:  premiere Pasotango Iº Simancas Symphony Festival by José María Morate 

The Camerata Iberycas was skilful accompanying and notable in the two issues of 'Suite Bergidum' by María José Cordero (especially 'Valle del silencio', echoes of 'Dies irae' in viola and cello solos, and violin I with Andalusian flavor) and 'Oración del Torero' by Turina. All with warm welcome, forcing to add soloist and orchestra, vibrant prelude to 'The Wedding of Luis Alonso'. 30/09/2022

Bio

The SEXteto IberyCAS aims to bring a breath of fresh air to the current Spanish musical scene. This unusual ensemble combines a string quintet with castanets as a soloist, with a primary objective: to promote the Spanish chamber music repertoire, especially those pieces featuring castanets as the solo instrument. Additionally, we aim to inspire and invite Spanish composers to expand the repertoire for this unique formation. We have already taken the first step by premiering the "Fantasía Española for castanets and chamber orchestra" by composer Joaquín Gericó, "Pasotango" by composer María José Cordero, and composer Flores Chaviano has kindly arranged four movements of Isaac Albéniz's "Suite Española" for the ensemble for our concerts in Zamora, Arévalo, and Segovia, in addition to the "Sonatas y fandango" by Padre Soler. The summer festival in the town of Simancas has chosen SEXteto IberyCAS as the resident ensemble for the 2021-2024 season. We have been invited to be part of the 33rd edition of the International Music Festival in Medina del Campo in 2024, the Liceo cycle in Salamanca, performances at the Benevivere Theater in León, the Philharmonic Society of Aranda, the Philharmonic Society of Burgos, and the Music and Heritage concert series of the Burgos Provincial Council.
