Her parents named her "Star" ... and with a grandfather, uncles and a father all famous musicians, how could she be anything but? The star in question is Estrella Morente, who has since exceeded every prediction of success to become one of the greatest flamenco vocalists alive today. Celebrated for her fresh approach to flamenco and popular Spanish songs, Morente has a supple and evocative voice, summoning heart-broken regret and boundless joy with equal ease (and often within the same song). So stirring is her voice, that director Pedro Almodóvar included it on the soundtrack to his Oscar-nominated film, Volver. Experience her intense rhythms and moody melodies -- and the accompaniment of a dazzling flamenco guitarist -- when Morente performs live at Cal Performances' Zellerbach Hall. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
- "Here was an astonishing demonstration of how to hold a capacity audience spellbound simply by applying the purest musicianship to the purest music." - The Daily Telegraph, London
The great Hungarian pianist returns to Cal Performances for a rare recital! Andras Schiff's recent activities include the creation of his own chamber orchestra, the Cappella Andrea Barca, and increased conducting and recording engagements. But it is in concert and recital halls where his true genius shines most brightly. It is here that a rare alchemy is achieved, a true equilibrium among the emotional, intellectual, and physical aspects of playing an instrument. "Here was an astonishing demonstration of how to hold a capacity audience spellbound simply by applying the purest musicianship to the purest music" (The Daily Telegraph, London).
Program: Haydn/Capriccio in G Major on "Acht Sauschneider mussen sein;" Sonata in E Minor; Variations in F Minor; Beethoven/Sonata in G Major, Op 31, No 1; Sonata in C Major, Op. 53, Waldstein
