Federico Garcia de Castro - Alia Musica

Original airdate 
Mar 29, 2019

Federico Garcia de Castro is the founder of the Alia Musica ensemble in Pittsburgh specializing in presenting music by living composers. March 29 at 7:30 in the James Laughlin Music Center at Chatham university Alia Musica presents the multiple award winning all women Aizuri String Quartet playing music by women and men who are alive and well today. Federico talks about the quartet and the And Play Duo of violin and viola who will be heard in Pittsburgh in April. He describes the master plan for his Alia Musica ensemble and who helped put it together with facilitation from Charlie Humphrey. Federico has discussed working with fellow countryman and coffee connoisseur  Maestro Andres Franco, Associate Conductor of the Pittsburgh Symphony. Federico is hoping to realize a dream of writing a violin concerto with inspiration from poetic notations of pain for Andres Cardenas and he fills us in on the next performance of his own music. When listeners fill out a form asking what they thought of the Alia Musica Ensemble they rarely say they hated it and at least so far have not found it painful.
