For the fifth consecutive year, our series of summer concerts is held on the museum’s terraces, this time under the label Momentos Alhambra | AperitivosThyssen. On different Saturdays, from July to September, we can enjoy a different concert.
This time, under the title Anonymous. Songs for an unknown character, the music cycle focuses on exploring those characters that we contemplate in works of the collection and of whom we do not have a biographical account. Unknown characters today, but protagonists in their time, to whom we want to dedicate this edition of AperitivosThyssen, creating a contemporary story around them with the complicity of the musicians participating in the project.
Each invited musician or group will dialogue with one of these characters without identity, endowing them with a vital story, and paying tribute to them through their music.
The entrance will be free until full capacity is reached.
Elle Belga x A Grandmother. AperitivosThyssen
Elle Belga are Josele García and Fany Álvarez, a pop duo with one of the most particular and personal proposals on the national scene. At their concert, they pay tribute to the victims of covid-19, inspired by the painting A Grandmother, by George Bellows.
Reykjavik606 x Group of Musicians. AperitivosThyssen
Reykjavik606 is a duo from the Basque Country, recognized for its fusion of electronics with genres such as jazz, and for a careful work that sustains the melancholic, narcotic and cinematographic atmospheres of their music. In this concert, they talk to us about the idea of a contemporary party, through the work Group of Musicians, by Jacob van Loo.
Julián Mayorga x The Love Letter. AperitivosThyssen
Julián Mayorga is a Colombian musician based in Madrid. He has one of the most interesting and eclectic musical proposals on the national scene, mixing electronics, guitar and Latin American sounds. Inspired with the work The Love Letter, by François Clouet, he faces the theme of past and present love rituals.
Hidrogenesse x Portrait of a man as Saint Andrew. AperitivosThyssen
Hidrogenesse is one of the best-known art-rock bands in Spain, especially famous for the quality of its surprising lyrics and for the radical nature of its performances. In their concert they relate the Portrait of a man as Saint Andrew by the Master of the Magdalen Legend with the culture of the contemporary image.
Siwo x Portrait of a Boy. AperitivosThyssen
This Mozambican closes the cycle with his Afro Futuristic electronic proposal. He will do so drawing inspiration from the work Portrait of a Boy, by Piero Della Francesca, to talk about contemporary gender identities.
