BILBAO, April/May 2022

30th April (at 4 pm and 5 pm) and 1st May (at 5 pm and 6 pm)​

On the occasion of the Tenth Anniversary of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, the Basque composer Gabriel Erkoreka created a work entitled "Hamar", conceived to be performed in different interior spaces of the Museum, as a musical installation. The piece explores various corners of Frank Gehry's building and establishes dialogues with the works of the Permanent Collection, giving them a sound dimension that makes us more aware of the space, accentuating its presence. In its 25th Anniversary, the Museum will once again host the performance of this musical composition during the weekend of April 30 and May 1, offering two shows on each afternoon. Visitors will be able to enjoy this event in different spaces of the Museum while they make their visit.​

 

National Music Award 2021

 

SCHERZO - Ismael G. Cabral

"For his brilliant career as a creator and for the richness of his compositional language (...) For the international projection of his music, programmed in important seasons and European festivals". In these terms, the jury of the National Music Prize expressed itself last October referring to its winner in 2021, in the field of composition, Gabriel Erkoreka (Bilbao, 1969). Award that, in the interpretation category, went to the organist Montserrat Torrent. Erkoreka thus becomes part of the group of composers who have deserved this award at the right time, with an important catalog and a lot to do. Among all this activity is, for example, that of supporting the imminent birth of a monographic album that Alfonso Gómez has dedicated to his complete piano work on the Kairos label.
