Welcome to the most international version of the FIP Guadalquivir, in its eighth edition “Las Mil y una Cordobas”

From September 22 to October 7, 2017 in VILLA DEL RÍO, CÓRDOBA and MILÁN.

Live like never before the history, culture, heritage, fashion, jewelry and enogastronomy of Villa del Río and Cordoba under the prism of classical music.

With the leitmotiv of “Las Mil y Una Cordobas”, the 8th Guadalquivir FIP is presented in Spain and Italy, building an unprecedented intercultural bridge and through which the most emblematic elements of our cities will be announced.

Like every year, the piano – unifying element of our musical proposal, stands with its versatility to other dimensions entering into synergy with the historical-cultural, heritage and industrial sectors allowing for the first time a great tourism and social development of the province of Cordoba . With this, the FIP Guadalquivir becomes an identity spokesman as an ambassador and exporter of Spanish classical music.

Keeping its firm structure, the festival presents a proposal of official impact concerts carrying us to other eras.
Inaugurated in the town of Villa del Río, where the roots of the festival are forged with the symphonic show “Villa del Rio Greco – Roman” and then continue in the city of Cordoba through an “International Tour of the Cultures of Cordoba” magnificent Courtyard of Columns of the Palace of Viana. It closes in that city in the imposing cathedral-mosque with “Córdoba Cristiana” and a pianist stellar, Leslie Howard, to continue in Milan presenting “Cordoba and its Patios” in the second largest theater as the Auditorium of Milan. It is also done by the big door and within the framework of the celebration of the “National Party of Spain” in Milan, a relevant fact that allows to position the festival as one of the cultural events of major national significance.

Its eagerness to revalue the traditional form of the concert with unusual spaces of the city, to spread the music among all the publics, to encourage the citizen participation and to extend the possibilities of labor insertion takes to him to its star event, Piano Córdoba, that already fulfills its room consecutive year shaken by a great success of assistance and criticism.

His incessant work in the improvement of musical education makes possible the second edition of the International Music Masterclasses in the magnificent facilities of the conservatory CPM Ziryab. This year, she also sisters with the Vienna Music Academy Orpheus, offering two scholarships to the best piano and violin students.

Last but not least, it is its internationalization in Milan through two events of great relevance:
– Exhibition of Fashion and Jewelry Cordobesas with designers of the stature of Elio Berhnayer.
– Final concert “Cordoba and its Patios” with great soloists from Cordoba and preceded by an aperitif with the best enogastronomic products of our land.

From my person, and on behalf of all the group that makes the festival possible, thank all the institutions and people who have made this festival possible, the volunteers and the media that they send us to every corner.
To all the public that enjoys with us, we give the warmest welcome to the eighth edition of the festival.
