Maestrissimo, June 9th & 10th in Logroño (La Rioja)
June 9, 2020 - June 10, 2020
MAESTRISSIMO is a comedy-musical show that depicts the adventures and misfortunes of a string quartet during an undefined period between the 17th and 18th centuries (between the Baroque and Neoclassicism).
We will be the witnesses of this masterful quartet in their efforts to get by, at a time when artists had no greater regard than a gardener or chef. The musicians, in order to survive, had to give in to the wishes and whims of those for whom they worked, composing, above all, pieces of circumstance or responding to very specific, often uninspiring requests.
Along the same lines as Pagagnini, but with a separate entity, MAESTRISSIMO will delight us with ever so carefully selected aesthetics and hilarious characters. It is a comedy which tackles such topics as ethics, creation, originality and the value of art in society, at the same time as it recaps key moments of classical music.
Yllana, again, leaves its mark on MAESTRISSIMO in an original fashion, and reinvents the way of conceiving a recital of classical music, intended for all audiences.
