A couple of years ago we have received a very interesting proposal. It was also one of the most unusual and fascinating EuroQuartet Barcelona’s concerts. The performance took place at the “Caja Madrid” concert hall in Plaça Catalunya (Barcelona). The concert was together with the famous hairstylist Lluís Llongueras and the subject was “The Beatles analyzed by the artists”. Llongueras was a real fan and a true expert of the Liverpool quartet. He commented by microphone one to one the pieces of The Beatles which were performed by EuroQuartet Barcelona with a special string quartet arrangement. With seating capacity completely, the four musicians played very well the full repertoire of The Beatles: since 1963 with the Beatles-passion, until to the hippy-psychedelic era with songs as for example “Lucy in the sky” or “Sgt. Pepper” between one song and another. Llongueras has explained and commented briefly each song with the evident enthusiasm of the public. It was a really fun concert that left everyone wanting more. We take this opportunity to greet Llongueras and his elegant wife which were very nice and attentive with us.
Antonio Vivaldi – Concerto Grosso Op.3 No.8 EuroQuartet Barcelona
EuroQuartet Barcelona likes very much to work with other musicians. We present you a majestic interpretation from a fragment of the 3rd movement of the Concerto Grosso for two violins and orchestra composed by Antonio Vivaldi. Our first violin, Piotr, is interpreting one of the main roles, with one of our most frequent partners, Olga Jeczmyk, which in this case is the head of second violins and the soloist. The peculiarity of this fragment is that the leading role is not the first violin as it is usual. We can appreciate that Olga, the second violin, is the one who is in control with a difficult accompaniment of Piotr followed by Luca Ceruti our viola and Jakub Jeczmyk, cello who is also one of our most frequent partners. We invite you to discover this musical jewel played by these great musicians.
