With an exellent music, Camerata Romeu charmed the local audience in Camagüey playing well-known themes of Cuba’s vast musical wealth and other international themes.
As if chamber music emerging from their violins, violas, cellos and basses would turn into magial dust, the audince felt under the spell of 18 virtous female musicians who managed to make an enviable performance.
Twenty years after its foundation, Camerata Romeu has consolidated its repertoir and sonority being something worth listening to in a concert. One can perceive that in the interesting arrangements the group has made of Cuba’s antologial themes like “Te Amaré”, “Chivo que rompe tambó” and “Soy campesino”, tunes that although originally were not composed for string orchestras, their well-done arrangements for this group have proved the contrary.
Young musicians who study at the “Luis Casas Romero” College of Art and at the “José White” Conservatory also appeared on the stage along with Zenaida Romeu’s group, totaling 60 artists. Before closing the concert, Zenaida Romeu thanked Pablo Milanés, Rolando Montes de Oca and the late Beatriz Vázquez, who always helped her to crystalize her musical project. “La bella cubana”, by José White, and “Camerata en guaguancó”, by Guido López Gavilán, were the themes she chose to end the concert that received in Camaguey a standing ovation after more than one and a half hour of performane.
