KIRILL VARJAS (CELLO), TAMILLA GULIYEVA (PIANO)

In the early 20th century, despite the loss of colonies and a serious political crisis, Spain experienced an unprecedented boom and popularization of its culture, which caused a real explosion in European musical circles. Spanish composers and performers were highly esteemed by the most discerning and demanding European critics. The works and creativity of masters such as Albéniz, de Falla, Cassadó, Sarasate, and Casals are considered masterpieces of world musical culture.
