Pagagninicombines classical music and Yllana’s slapstick humour all in one show. The result is an amusing and surprising “Des-Concierto” (a Dis-Concert), which reviews some of the pinnacle moments in the history of classical music by ingeniously combing them with more popular tunes. This mixture of styles leads to the creation of a medley of emotions, a concert where the seriousness and solemnity of music is combined wonderfully with moments of subtle humour. This quirky perspective of the world of concertos, added to the elegant and virtuoso interpretation of these four outstanding musicians, has proven capable of fascinating even the most erudite spectators, as well as exalting and inspiring audiences of all ages from around the world.

“What was missing in other shows, high standards, is what there is in Pagagnini. Simply great!”
Santiago Fondevila, La Vanguardia (Barcelona, Spain)
