About the project
After two years playing together, plenty full of concerts, projects, ideas, hard work and enthusiasm, we believe it is about time to capture it all on a CD, a compilation of our current repertoire. A collection of duo literature jewellery -flute and bassoon- and arrangements for trio -flute, bassoon and marimba- from some of the best composers in history such as Beethoven, Saint Saens, Villa Lobos or Piazzolla.
Light – Blowing Shadows is much more than our first album. It is Duo Almira’s portrait. Playing together has helped us to blow the shadows lurking life, especially in the professional field. The combination of educated music and more accessible music we play at our concerts gives light to the dark prejudices surrounding classical music. Because music must be felt not understood.
Duo Almira has its roots in the Higher School of Music of the Basque Country (Musikene), where Isabel and Paula discovered the chamber music world and all its possibilities with Professor Gabriel Loidi.
Since its inception they have had one goal: to move with their interpretations. Thanks to this, imagination and creativity have not ceased from flying, offering duo or duo with marimba concerts, choosing repertoire that leaves no one indifferent. Although it is a young ensemble they have already performed at the Teatro del Canal, as part of the Ibercaja cycles of chamber music or at the “nights” of the Olivar de Castillejo Foundation. In addition, they hold a scholarship from the Yehudi Menuhin - Live Music Now foundation.
