Formentera commemorates International Women's Day with "Dones al piano" recital

The Offices of Culture and Equality of the Consell de Formentera are pleased to report that the Sala de Cultura (Cinema) will host Women on the Piano (Dones al piano). This recital, dedicated to International Women's Day, will take place Saturday 18 March at 8.00pm and will be free with limited capacity.

Anabel Márquez, a Valencian pianist and teacher based on Formentera, will offer a recital of piano works by female composers and will make a journey through the history of music.

Anabel Márquez studied piano in Valencia under Maria Enriqueta Navarro in professional studies and with concert pianist Mario Monreal in advanced studies, as well as flute studies with Miguel Llopis and Joaquín Gericó. She furthered her studies with Guillermo González, Brenno Ambrossinni and Stanislav Pochekin, among others.

Since 2001 she has lived on Formentera, working for 16 years as a piano teacher and head of studies at the Formentera Municipal School of Music and Dance, and as a teacher in the extension classroom of the "Catalina Bufí" Professional Conservatory of Music and Dance of Eivissa and Formentera, where she earned the position of career civil servant in 2006 and continues to practise today.

Despite a primary focus on education, Márquez has also performed chamber concerts on each of the Pine Islands and collaborated with the City of Eivissa Symphonic Orchestra.

The recital will include pieces by composers such as Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerra, Marianne Von Martínez, Fanny Mendelssohn, Clara Schumann, Teresa Carreño, Cécile Chaminade, Lili Boulanger and Mercè Pons.
