The Music of the Inexpressible (Levante, 23.10.2023)

INAUGURAL CONCERT Jacobo Christensen, violin; Davit Khrikuli, piano. Works: F.Schubert, C. Debussy, M.Ravel. Friday, Oct 20th. Marqués de Gonzàlez de Quirós House of Culture Tzigane (1924) is true fusion music. A work that explores the world of color, that transforms music into purely dreamlike moments, and does so first of all through the instruments chosen by Ravel; violin and piano/luthéal (prepared piano that expands the timbral possibilities of the traditional piano).

Mar 25, 2023 > Jacobo Christensen & Duó Apellániz · Beethoven Trios | Mercantile Athenaeum (Valencia)

At 19:00 · Online tickets Violinist Jacobo Christensen and the Apellániz Duo present their romantic vision of Beethoven’s two most popular trios.

Equally brilliant is his interpretation of the “Archduke Trio”, the last of Beethoven’s compositions and written in a veritable burst of inspiration for a virtuoso trio. Great and overwhelming music for an afternoon difficult to forget.
