For the third year running the #AperitivosThyssen concerts sponsored by Heineken will be held on the Museum’s rooftop terraces. Candeleros, Le Parody, Lorena Álvarez, Ruiseñora, De La Puríssima, Baiuca and Los Hermanos Cubero will be performing on seven Saturdays from June to September at 12.30 midday.

Rooftop terraces, courtyards and gardens have always been places for meeting, leisure and relaxation, spaces where plants and fresh air encourage us to disconnect. They have also inspired artists to create masterpieces of painting, some of them in the collection of the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza.

A series of musicians whose work reinterprets the popular music tradition from different perspectives and styles will now be making connections between their performances and paintings in the Thyssen collection.

Lorena Álvarez in concert. Thyssen Aperitifs

The third concert in the #AperitivosThyssen series presents Lorena Álvarez, an Asturian composer and singer who moves between pop and folklore in a spontaneous, elegant way. Her songs make use of musical typologies such as the “jota”, the “pasadoble” and traditional festival music still heard in villages around Spain. On this occasion Lorena will be accompanied by the trio Cosmotrío, comprising Marta Iglesias on the violin, Lorena García on the viola and Clara Molina on the cello, offering a fusion of classical and popular music that brings a note of distinction to her songs.

Ruiseñora in concert. Thyssen Aperitifs

The fourth #AperitivosThyssen concert features Ruiseñora, a duo comprising Atilio González (music) and Elia Maqueda (lyrics), who offer the Spanish popular songs known as coplas in an electronic version. Their first album, “Siglo XX”, refers to Lole and Manuel and Vainica Doble but also to great performers in this genre such as La Argentina and Raquel Meyer. The duo make use of evocative lyrics that refer to the landscapes and villages of rural Extremadura, all seasoned with a unique instrumental style that includes elements close to synth pop.

De La Puríssima in concert. Thyssen Aperitifs

Julia de Castro is “De La Puríssima”, a traditional but innovative singer who uses the copla genre. Performing with musicians Miguel Rodríguez (double bass), Gonzalo Maestre (percussion) and Juan Cruz Peñaloza (piano), they will be bringing their provocative style to #AperitivosThyssen, ranging from jazz to cuplé and including pop, Neapolitan songs and electronic music. The quartet’s striking presentation and approach capture the audience’s attention from the first note of the show through seductive lyrics and a type of Madrid neo-realism.

Baiuca in concert. Thyssen Aperitifs

The next concert in the #AperitivosThyssen series comes from Baiuca, a project devised by producer Alejandro Guillán which combines Galicia’s musical and oral tradition with contemporary electronic sounds. The result is music that fuses aturuxo (traditional Galician vocal sounds) and bagpipes with avant-garde electronic music. Representative of “folktronic” music today, Baiuca investigates and develops the relationship between current music and traditional Galician sounds and instruments.

Los Hermanos Cubero in concert. Thyssen Aperitifs

The final concert in the #AperitivosThyssen series is by Los Hermanos Cubero, a duo from Guadalajara which has gained a name throughout Europe for its combination of Bluegrass and local music from Alcarria. This is a bold, catchy approach in which the duo makes use of guitar and mandolin to offer a new interpretation of the traditional jota, seguidillas, romances and pasacalles, all music of the Castilian countryside which they seamlessly fuse with American country music.
