The pianist Rosa Torres-Pardo, together with the actress and singer Clara Muñiz, will perform a series of pieces that pay homage to the city of New York and its legacy as a source of inspiration for national and international composers who have been part of the history of Manhattan , as a unique center for artistic creation. With pieces by North American, Spanish and Argentine composers, the program explores the comings and goings between American composition and musical creation that was born in large Spanish-speaking cities.

The program will begin and end with works by American composers John Adams and George Gershwin. Meanwhile, we will take part in a journey between Buenos Aires and Madrid with pieces inspired by New York composition, including works by the fathers of Argentine tango Alberto Ginastera and Astor Piazzolla and the Spanish composer Isaac Albéniz. We will arrive at the present through the musical innovation of composers such as Ricardo Llorca and William Kingswood, artists adopted by New York and the international musicians and artists who develop their work in that great city. The program will also include a reading of the poem "Mannahatta" by the poet Walt Whitman, whose bicentennial of his birth is commemorated this year.
