Once again the Liceu Conservatory Foundation has been present at this musical event which takes place annually in the French island, and which this year celebrated its 23rd edition.
The Trio Tarsis, formed by the flamenco guitar students Carlos Coronado, Javier Vélez and Jaume Francès under the direction of professor Manuel Granados, performed between the 8th and 12th of November in several places of the island of Corsica, renewing one more year the collaboration between the Liceu Conservatory and the Association des Jeunesses Musicales de Méditerranée.
During these intense days of music, the Trio Tarsis performed a total of five concerts in different theatres and venues in the Corsican towns of Borgo, Bastia and Corte, as well as taking part in the Final Gala together with other participating ensembles from various Mediterranean countries, which was held at the Municipal Theatre of Bastia.
In their concerts, the Trio Tarsis performed a programme of works composed by the maestro Manuel Granados, inspired by the repertoire of the most important flamenco guitarists, through a historical-musical journey through the different forms of composition that have arisen for this instrumental modality.
This edition of the Rencontres Musicales de Méditerranée was attended by around 200 young European musicians from conservatories and musical institutions from various Mediterranean countries, alongside other instrumental and vocal ensembles from Algeria, Egypt, Spain, Italy, France, Monaco, Morocco, Portugal and Tunisia.
With the performances of the Trio Tarsis in Corsica, this is the fifth time that groups made up of students from the Liceu Conservatory have taken part in this important musical event which brings together musicians from various countries and in which different concerts and activities are organised in theatres, schools and churches all over the island.
