From January 8th to February 14th 2016 the MUSIC will be present in the Canary Islands. It will return to the venues of the whole Archipelago with the celebration of the 32nd International Music Festival of the Canary Islands, when the first notes will sound in the Auditorio Alfredo Kraus in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
The FIMC ( Festival Internacional de Música de Canarias), as one of the most important classical music Festivals in Spain will offer, as usual, a program of extraordinary quality, betting again for music as a vehicle of communication and broadcasting of culture, so that the Canary Islands remain being a national and international benchmark in terms of classical music.
For the Times of London, “perhaps he is the new Horowitz.” After a Matsuev recital at the Kennedy Center last November, Tim Page wrote in The Washington Post that “Matsuev seems to be the very real thing – an absolute powerhouse of a pianist, capable of vanquishing the most technically demanding music in the repertory,” adding, “I hope the piano is feeling better again soon.” Writing last month, The Cincinnati Post recommended buying a ticket “on the left hand side” of the symphony hall in order to be able to watch firsthand the “power and panache” of Matsuev.Alison Smale
