As with the sea, you cannot put doors to culture. This was demonstrated in the first months of the Covid-19 pandemic, when the arts became the escape route for thousands of people, demonstrating that the online format does not have to take away an iota of emotion.
A new fact has just confirmed that any cultural manifestation, with the complicity of the Internet, it can shrink our hearts wherever we are. And the fact is that the online concert cycle created by two young pianists – Naira Perdu from Almeria and Vicente Prieto from Murcia – is playing in nine countries to the surprise of its founders. Specifically, these are Spain, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Greece, Israel, Honduras, the United States, Uruguay and Brazil.
The first concert of the Numen Nights – that’s the name of the initiative – was broadcast last Thursday, June 3 and had spectators from different origins. So much so that the success of the broadcast has had an impact on ticket sales that are still open, since the first live show can be seen again and the cycle has only just begun.
Numen Nights broadcasts its second concert this Thursday, June 10, at 10 p.m., by the pianist from Moline Arturo Ruiz who, after giving a concert with works by Schubert, he will be interviewed by Naira Perdu so that the public can better know the performer and the details that surround the world of music behind the scenes.
The cycle has the support of the Department of Culture of Molina de Segura, Villa de Molina Theater, Estrella de Levante, Kumon and Iberpiano. Can be consulted more information and proceed to the sale of tickets through the website www.numen.live.

He completed his higher piano studies at the Conservatorio Superior de Murcia, obtaining Honor Matriculation in his final recital of the degree after having studied in the class of Dr. Pilar Valero Abril, who will always be an important mentor and guide for her.
During this period, He completed his training studying with the Hungarian pianist Imre Rohmann in the Music Room of the University of Alcalá de Henares. In 2014, Naira moved to Belgium to study the Master of Solo Performance at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel, in the class of Prof. Boyan Vodenitcharov, which had a strong influence on her musical perception, ending with the qualification ‘Cum Laude’ in 2017 .
He has received master classes from other great pianists such as Fabio Bidini, Jean-Claude Vanden Eyden, Claudio Martínez Mehner, Nino Kereselidze, among others.
Naira has played in Spain, Portugal, France, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Israel and Russia and since 2012 he has collaborated on several occasions with the Murcia Region Symphony Orchestra, also as a soloist; ‘Carnaval de los Animales’ by Saint-Saëns and ‘Concert for 2 pianos K.365’ by Mozart and in January 2018 she was selected to collaborate with the Bilbao Symphony Orchestra (BOS).
His love for the repertoire of Chamber Music led him to play several times in a duo with the pianist Vicente Prieto, highlighting the interpretation of Bach’s ‘Concerto for 2 pianos in C minor BWV 1060’ with the Elche Symphony Orchestra and his participation in February 2017 playing at the world premiere of a choreography by Ivan Vassiliev, with the first dancers of the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow in the Victor Villegas auditorium in Murcia.
Due to the desire to delve into one of her favorite works, in 2018 Naira created together with the actor Fran Bermejo the project ‘Of love, music and words’; an unpublished performance around the piano pieces from ‘Romeo and Juliet op 75 ‘by Prokofiev that premiered in Molina de Segura, Almería and Brussels with a warm reception from the public.
Naira currently finds inspiration and advice from Maestro Aquiles delle Vigne and develops her concert activity being selected to play at the prestigious ‘Wiener Saal’ in Salzburg and invited to the ‘Clara Schumann Weekend’ festival in Moscow and the ‘International Piano Festival’ in Subotica, Serbia (the latter postponed to the following season due to confinement).
Some of his projects for this season are la participation in the ‘Sardoal Talent Award’ as part of the jury of the youth category and the development of his recital of music and reflections ‘Vers la vie nouvelle’ that premiered in Alicante on December 17.
