Torremolinos is hosting the 1st Chamber Music Cycle at the Molino de Inca. This series will consist of four concerts that can be enjoyed during the spring. The four performances will be divided by musical style: baroque, classical, romantic and contemporary, offering the public a unique and educational experience.

This event was presented by the Councillor for Culture, José Manuel Ruiz, who said that, “we have worked on a cycle that aims to disseminate classical music and bring it closer to all our neighbours and lovers of this genre, and we do it in the wonderful botanical garden Molino de Inca“.

The first concert will take place on the Friday April 5 at 7pm. It will be given by the string quartet ‘Spinto’ who will perform a programme divided into two parts. In the first, the audience will be able to enjoy Vivaldi’s ‘Four Seasons’, and in the second, ‘Works by Piazzola’.
