The choir Doinu Zahar from Durango (Bizkaia) celebrates its twenty-fifth anniversary and on this occasion has commissioned several musical works to renowned composers as Javier Busto, Albert Alcaraz, Jesus Mari Sagarna, Josu Elberdin or Jesus Egiguren, conductor of the choir.
For Elberdin, the choir has commissioned the composition Durangoko Plateruek (Silversmiths of Durango), a work based on the roots of folklore, with the idea of enjoying happiness above all things. The Silversmiths of Durango were two brothers who had a life based on happiness and enjoyment. The score reflects this idea, with music, lively rhythmic and very jovial.
The anniversary concert and premiere works will be on Sunday March 30 at 19pm at the Basilica of Santa Maria de Durango, Bizkaia. Admission is free.
