The Garnati Ensemble at the Music & Beyond Festival
The Spanish chamber music group will perform at the 8th edition of the festival.
Music and Beyond is a classical music and multi-disciplinary arts festival that presented its first edition in July 2010. The festival pursues links between other art forms and cultural disciplines and music, including visual art, drama, poetry, etc. By tying together a wide range of cultural disciplines, the festival creates a more “festive” atmosphere, helping to attract an even broader audience to music.
Music and Beyond strives to reach out to people of all cultural backgrounds and all demographics. A major part of its mandate is building new audiences for music and the arts, with a special emphasis on young people.
About Garnati Ensemble
Garnati is an open ensemble of chamber music, made up of different instrumentations depending on the nature of each project. Created in 2005 by leading classical musicians Pablo and Alberto Martos, the project aspires to develop and promote chamber music through collaboration with a variety of top-level musicians of international prestige such as Michel Lethiec, Lluis Claret and others.
Garnati, as its founders, is based in Granada, Spain. The Garnati name refers to this city, the melting pot of the old Al-Andalus. With Garnati, the brothers have performed in many prestigious venues including the United Nations in New York, the International Music Festival of Santander, the Spanish Music Festival in Cadiz, etc.
Invited by the Barenboim-Said Foundation, the Martos brothers have toured extensively throughout the Middle East with an innovative music project in memory of Palestinian-American literary theorist Edward Said.
