Founded in 1987 with the objective of promoting the creation and dissemination of contemporary music, this flexible chamber group consists of flute, clarinet, violin, cello, saxophone quartet, piano, percussion and electro-acoustic media. When necessary, in many of their concerts the group will incorporate additional wind and string instruments, as well as voice.
The creation and dissemination of the music of our time, for the initial formation of the group, which was a novel instrumentation at the time (saxophone quartet, piano and percussion), as well as formations with additional instruments, electro-acoustic media, orchestral groups, and for the present formation of 14 players, has been the driving force behind this group for the last twenty-two years. In 1997 they were awarded the National Music Prize for Interpretation, for their great contribution to Spanish music.

*The concerts organized by MadWomenFest within the Autumn Concert Series of the CONDE DUQUE Cultural Centre are events at which new synergies between music and the other arts will be created, their format will be different and they will end with an open space for dialogue between the artists and the audience.
