MSKN MasterEnsemble is the new versatile orchestral formation in which the Master in Music Performance students obtain a high-level professional training, focusing above all on the repertoire that ranges from the 20th century classics to the première of new works.
José Luis Estellés is conducting this 2020/21 three programs.
The full program brings together a world première by the talented composer Mikel Iturregi, the ever-modern masterpiece for ensemble by Varese – Octandre-, next to the central European avant-garde music of Cerha and Rihm plus to icons of our musical tradition: Mahler’s “Titan” and Hans Zender’s Schuberts “Winterreise”.
Works by Takemitsu and Messiaen.
GRANADA, MANUEL DE FALLA AUDITORIUM
José Antonio Cantón│Scherzo Magazine│January 2021
[…] The performance of this instrumental quartet must be considered as a true artistic event… José Luis Estellés entered fully into action in the Abîme des oiseaux, suspending the sound of his clarinet in space… thus achieving one of the most astonishing moments of the concert, which left a feeling of total dissolution of time, all seasoned by the appearance of intervals that curiously pointed to some modulations of the overwhelming melopea of the third act of Tristan invented by Wagner for the English horn.
