Once again the NOSOLOCLASICA orchestra
offers us a different, participatory and unexpected concert.
Together with the famous violinist Vasko Vassilev and the conductor Miguel A. Navarro,
through the music of Gustav Holst
we will get to know this new production that presents us with the musical
and anthropological essence of some of the most important planets in our universe.
A unique language, a current sound, cosmic and interplanetary
sound effects as well as a claim for our planet and human values that will transport us
on a musical journey through the universe and its planets.
A concert full of surprises that will not leave anyone indifferent.
