Maria Camahort : Iberian Colours

Maria Camahort Quintet presents a uniquely original project of music by Spanish Composers, sharing with the audience the vivid colours, earthy textures and rhythms of spanish musical art.
IBERIAN COLOURS is a journey through the relationship between Spanish Classical repertoire and influences from Iberia’s traditional music.  Traditional music in Spain has long been an important source of inspiration for many Spanish composers: De Falla, Mompou, Granados, Albéniz, and Toldrà, to name a few. More intensely since the end of the 19th-century—and especially through the 20th as a consequence of Musical Nationalism—Spanish composers have been inspired by the lyrics, melodies, rhythms and harmonies of traditional music. The guitar, as the predominant instrument of Spanish folk heritage, was one of their main sources of inspiration.

The Maria Camahort Quintet was born in November 2011 out of the desire to increase the possibilities in chamber music. Guitarist Maria Camahort arranges the repertoire and leads this project created alongside four other talented musicians: Violeta García, voice and violin; Laura Ruhí-Vidal, soprano; Sergio Serra, cello; Pablo Domínguez, percussion and guitar. The Quintet has already performed at some of the top venues and festivals such as Kings Place and the Purcell Room. Their debut album ‘Iberian Colours’ will be a representation of the vibrancy of Spain in sound, bringing to the audience the musicality, the flavour and the stories that are held in the music of Spanish composers.
MCQ Iberian Colours, released by the recording label Convivium Records International, will be available in digital format in Itunes, Amazon Music, Spotify, etc, and distribute physically by Harmonia Mundi UK.
