An icon of a new generation of pianists, Khatia Buniatishvili is a force of nature who captivates the public with her virtuosity and temperament. For her concert in Andorra, she has prepared a repertoire with pieces by Brahms, Tchaikovsky and Liszt.

Born in Tbilisi (Georgia) in 1987, Buniatishvili started her musical career at the age of three. She has now become an international figure with a spectacular stage presence, so she has been dubbed the Beyoncé of the piano. Khatia Buniatishvili’s main role models are pianists from past generations, such as Sergei Rachmaninov, Sviatoslav Richter, Glenn Gould and Martha Argerich, her favorite pianist.

These exceptional musicians will pay tribute to Leonard Bernstein in the first half of the show entirely dedicated to the American composer. In the second half, the protagonist will be Tchaikovsky, who will be remembered on the 125th anniversary of his death.

 Javier Camarena (Opera) – April 24th

Camarena, Javier2018

Javier Camarena is all the rage in the world of opera, having become only the third singer over the last 70 years to have given an encore at the Metropolitan Opera House. He repeated this tour de force three months later at Madrid’s Teatro Real.

The Mexican tenor is the first to have given an encore at two consecutive performances in the history of the two opera houses. Following his début in Zürich (Switzerland) in 2007, Javier Camarena has won the admiration of audiences worldwide for the beauty of his interpretations in a repertoire of great virtuosity and difficulty, for which he has performed alongside some of the world’s top opera stars in leading roles under the baton of eminent conductors such as Claudio Abbado and Zubin Mehta, to mention just a few.

The tickets for the various shows in the Season can be purchased on MoraBanc’s ticket sales web page, at the La Llacuna Cultural Centre, at the Andorra Tourist Office and at the Congress Centre on the day of the shows. Prices range from 25 to 35 euros. A season ticket for the four shows can also be purchased at a 25% discount for 105 euros until Thursday 18 January.
