The Zahir Ensemble offers a concert with six contemporary pieces at the Juan March.

The Spanish Zahir Ensemble will perform this evening at 18:30 in the auditorium of the Madrid headquarters of the Fundación Juan March. The concert programme consists of six works by six Spanish composers born between 1962 and 1973 and forms part of the cultural institution’s so-called Aula de (Re) estrenos, the concert series inaugurated in 1986 with the aim of showcasing Spanish creation of the 20th and 21st centuries.

The composers and their works to be performed by Zahir Ensemble are Voro García (Sueca 1970), with Jardín de sueños; Eneko Vadillo (Málaga, 1973), with Transparences; Mercedes Zavala (Madrid, 1963), with Mudanza; Sergio Blardony (Madrid, 1965), with Un soplo que vacía el pecho; César Camarero (Madrid, 1962), with Klangfarbenphonie III, and the Argentinian Fabián Panisello (Buenos Aires, 1963), with Piezas métricas I. Klangfarbenphonie III, by César Camarero, is a work written expressly for Zahir Ensemble, premiered almost a year ago in the Auditorio del Centro de Iniciativas Culturales de la Universidad de Sevilla (CICUS).

Zahir Ensemble is a chamber ensemble founded in 2005 by the Spanish director Juan García Rodríguez (Sanlúcar de Barrameda, 1974), who is also chief conductor since its foundation, in 2011, of the Orquesta Sinfónica Conjunta, a project of the University of Seville and the Conservatorio Superior de Música Manuel Castillo, in Seville. The concert can be attended live – two thirds of the two hundred seats can be booked online from 9:00 to 12:00, and the remaining third can be obtained at the box office one hour before the concert – but it can also be followed live on Canal March and the Foundation’s YouTube channel, as well as on RTVE Play and RNE’s Radio Clásica. The audio of the concert is available for thirty days.
