The Philharmonic Orchestra of the UV gives the concert for the opening of the academic year this Friday, 14 October, at 20 hours, in the Serrano Theatre of Gandia. The act will also serve to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the proclamation of Valencia as the capital city of the Second Republic.
Coinciding with this date, the instrumental formation directed by Hilari Garcia Gázquez since 2011 will present a programme based on the recovery of works of the «Grup dels Joves» (Youngsters’ Group) together with pieces of the master Palau (Manuel Palau), academic father and artistic mentor of the members, and of Matilde Salvador Segarra, sucessor as one of the few composer women of this period and also linked to the group.
The programme, divided in two acts, will be really varied, with works for string orchestra or for large symphonic orchestra. It will start with the piece of Vicente Asencio Ruano «Tres obras para orquesta de arco» (Three works for arc orchestra), and it will end up, in the second part, with «Danza plenilunio» (Full moon dance) of Vicent Garcés Queralt, also member of «Grup dels Joves».
The concert will include the participation of the soprano soloist Marta Estal Vera. The goal, according to the director of the Philarmonic Orchestra, is to recover and revive the music of some talented composers who started to reflect it in these first works. «It is a very interesting work for the Valencian heritage, but also as a demand of their figure and the importance of their creative dignity those years. We want to place them at the same level of other contemporary composers from other territories in Spain and Europe», says Hilari Garcia.
The «Grup dels Joves» comprised the composers Ricardo Olmos Canet (1905-1986), Vicent Garcés Queralt (1906-1984), Luis Sánchez Fernández (1907-1957), Vicente Asencio Ruano (1908-1979) and Emilio Valdés Perlasia (1912-98).
