Make other people happy, there is nothing better and  more  beautiful

Ludwig van Beethoven

Dear friends,

The director and team of the International Chamber Music Festival have decided that, given the difficulties of the health crisis we are experiencing, Live Music cannot stop sounding, so this year, the 12th edition will be held, although in a smaller format, adapting, as it cannot be otherwise, to the norms dictated by the government. The Festival and the City of Godella guarantee strict compliance with hygiene and safety regulations so that our audiences can come to enjoy good music in good company without any concern or worries.

From the Festival team and the Chamber Music Association, we want to express our condolences to the victims of the pandemic that we are living. We want as well to offer and share one of the most valuable human activities, Music, the art that gets most deeply in our souls and that can help to go through the most difficult moments.

As we had already planned the Festival features Beethoven as the reference figure. 2020 celebrates the 250th anniversary of his birth. Beethoven was not only one of the greatest composers in the History of Music, but has also become a symbol of the fight for human rights, the need for brotherhood among human beings and, in his time, for the artist’s liberation to become an independent individual capable of expressing with music not only emotions, but also ideas and social demands.

We present chamber works by the kindest Beethoven, the “Septet” opus 20, one of his most popular works, string trios with piano and the last of his string quartets. Along with Beethoven you can listen to the woman composer Louise Farrenc, Beethoven’s contemporary, to Mendelsshonn and other fantastic music performed mostly by the Festival Ensemble.

As special guests we will have the fabulous violinist Letícia Moreno, who is already the third year with us, the Trío Arbós, with Juan Carlos Garvayo on the piano, one of the musicians who is already part of our Festival family.

This year we will not be able to do, for reasons derived from the health crisis, the Young Talents workshop and contest. Anyway, we will have one of the concerts dedicated to the winners of the last two editions of our competition.

On the other hand, we will incorporate a group of young people in the orchestral program, offering them a weekend of orchestral course where they will prepare the program with teachers from the Festival.

The program planned with orchestra and choirs represents the most transcendent Beethoven, with his 5th Symphony, and the most optimistic and humanistic, with his Choral Fantasy and Fidelio’s choirs. We will have the renowned Josep Colom as our piano soloist.

We are very much willing to do this program with the orchestra, the participatory choir and the pianist Josep Colom, but the date is still to be confirmed, since we do not know when it will be possible to gather so many people on stage. We have everything ready hopefully  do it sometime in the autumn.

Thus, we will have a Festival in two parts, a pure chamber music in July-August and the orchestra and choir in autumn.

We are looking forward and very excited to share this wonderful music live with you. Don’t miss it!
