If you are reading this, it is because you are already part of the Clásica Plus family, an artistic and personal project that was born to share two very important things to me. First of all, my land, Navarra, and my city, Pamplona. My career as an international artist has made me travel all over the world saying with pride that I am from Navarre. When considering the creation of a festival of this magnitude, I could not choose another place than my homeland. Our Navarrese musical and historical heritage is worth claiming. Clásica Plus is a key international socio-musical reference for the tourism of our region.
Secondly, I need to share with you my vision of classical music, far from clichés usually associated with this type of artistic creation: classical music is full of fresh air, it has no labels, no limits, and no borders. 2020 has been a year of changes, and we get to 2021 with a new identity but with the same artistic quality and with a vocation to reach all kinds of audiences. I want us to get lost in the sounds of a careful program that I have put together, where there are tributes to great artists from Navarra, and winks to two of the composers who are celebrating their centenary this year (Piazzolla and Saint-Säens).
This summer we will meet again in Navarra in a renewed edition under the motto of “Encounters and Tributes”. A wonderful cast of great guest artists will arrive in Pamplona with figures such as María Bayo, who has not performed in Navarra for years and will present a program titled “Songs of Return”, or professor Dorantes, who presents “Identidad”, his latest work and probably the most personal one. Along with them, three extraordinary resident artists will accompany me in this edition (Lina Tur Bonet, Ana María Valderrama and Astrig Siranossian) and other magnificent guest artists such as Rafael Aguirre or María Berasarte. We do not want to forget the new generations, that is why the new Talentos Plus section supports musicians at the beginning of their careers by participating in concerts with the great artists. We consolidate the section of great Clásica Plus Concerts, the musical talks, the Late Plus club-like concerts, the masterclasses, the children’s workshops, the great Miniplus family concert …
Wishing and hoping that this reunion becomes a special one for all of you, as much as it is for the artists and the team that are part of this wonderful project that we have prepared with so much love and enthusiasm. Long live the Music, see you this summer in Clásica Plus! #NotaLaMúsica #MadeinNavarra #CulturaSegura
