The string group Ensemble Praeteritum is giving a concert this afternoon at 7 p.m. at the Centro Sefarad-Israel (Calle Mayor, 69) dedicated to the composer of Jewish origin Felix Mendelssohn (1809 – 1847).
Born into a prominent Jewish family, Felix Mendelssohn, with his rapturous romantic spirit and the genius of his much admired Mozart, through his chamber symphonies leads to the most extreme and yet most innocent feelings of the romantic ideals of the first half of the 19th century. One of the main objectives of the Ensemble Praeteritum is the search for novelty in the way of dealing with music. By means of strong dynamic and expressive contrasts, improvisations, cadences, recitations, and a constant search for colours in the sound, the Ensemble interprets the score creating a special and personal beauty destined purely for the enjoyment of the public.
