Spanish pianist Alberto Martín Díaz will join the local based Szabó-Yélamo String Duo this Sunday afternoon in the Regional Cultural Centre for another delightful chamber music recital in Donegal.

This is the second of the autumn concerts presented by the Donegal Chamber Music Society.

This ensemble will offer a “Spanish-Hungarian” programme including piano trios by Turina and Haydn, a string duo by Bartók and solo piano music by Manuel De Falla.

The Szabó-Yélamo String Duo was founded in 2006. The wife and husband duo is comprised of the Hungarian violinist Orsolya Szabó-Yélamo and the Spanish cellist Víctor Yélamo. Both are professional musicians and principal members of the Spanish String Orchestra Concerto Málaga, and are extensively involved in music education across the Northwest of Ireland. They play instruments made by Károly Péteri and bows by Paolo Pamiro.

Alberto Martín Díaz, from Vélez-Málaga in Spain, has won a number of prestigious awards as well as the Conservatorio of Málaga special prize.

He studied in Málaga’s Conservatorio of Music, in the Queen Sofia School of Music Madrid and the Franz List Academy Budapest. His teachers include Galina Eguiazarova and András Kelemen. Alberto appears regularly as piano accompanist, soloist and chamber musician all across Spain, playing in venues such as Cervantes Theatre (Málaga), Palace of Marqués de Salamanca and the Auditorium Sony (Madrid). Currently he works in the Conservatorio Fortea in Madrid.
