“This show includes some poems of Lorca along with music from Spanish composer from different ages; some of them are from Catalonia, Madrid, Basque Country and Teruel. In other words, from all over the Spain”, explain Ainhoa Arteta.
The soprano, who highlighted that this is the first time “La voz y el poeta” travel so far, arrived to the country of “Dostoyesvki and Chaikoski”. She also affirmed that the Moscow Conservatory “has one of the best acoustics of the world”.
