Between Strings and Metals, he will give the awards of his XXII edition on Friday at El Batel (16/05/2019)

On Friday, May 17, the Closing Concert of the twenty-second edition of the Between Strings and Metals competition, organized by the Youth Council of the City of Cartagena and the Conservatory of Music of Cartagena, will be held at the El Batel de Cartagena Auditorium.

The entrance to the Closing Gala will be free and free until full capacity, opening the doors one hour before its start, scheduled for 20 hours.

This has been a very special edition with a very high participation (in total 169 young people) and with a lot of level on the part of the contestants of the XXII edition.

In the Closing Ceremony, in addition to making public the decision of the Jury in all the modalities of the contest, a Gala conducted by the Company Hechizo Teatro will be offered.

Among the protagonists of the Gala, will be the performance of the winning group in the modality of Chamber Music of the last edition of Entre Cuerdas y Metales, the Scherzo Quintet, composed by Ana Ros Hernández (transverse flute), María Conesa Vidal (clarinet) , Pablo Bernal Pozo (oboe), Paula Cerdán Brau (horn) and Javier García Bas (bassoon), who will perform, among other pieces: Wind Quintet D Major, Op. 95 by JB Foerster and Three Shanties by Malcolm Arnold.

This year the woman has played a key role in the contest, starting with the tribute we continue to the composer and one of the best pianists in history, Clara Schumann, celebrating the bicentennial of his birth, and by extension to other 14 women composers from the Middle Ages to the postromanticism that have also been key in the history of music and that we wanted to make known in the exhibition "Those Great Unknowns", which will be present again at the Closing Gala of Between Strings and Metals in the Batel.

Not only in the field of composition there is a void and negligible recognition among the female sector, but also in other facets of music such as that of the Direction.

The history of women orchestra directors goes back a few years ago.

They are still very few and mostly unknown.

It's hard to see them on stage, so we wanted to recover one of them and close the Closing Gala in the best possible way;

with Isabel María Rubio Molina, who was also awarded in the Entre Cuerdas y Metals Competition in the X Edition in 2007 in percussion mode.

Thus, the Orchestra of the Conservatory of Music of Cartagena, whose titular director is Ginés Martínez Vera who has kindly given the baton to Isabel Rubio, will be in charge of putting the finishing touch to the closing ceremony of Entre Cuerdas y Metals, in its twentieth second edition.

They will interpret: La Gazza Ladra by G. Rossini and the Soundtrack "Las Crónicas de Narnia"
