The work's name comes from the guitar festival Altamira in Hong King. That's Hanson Yao who commissions José Maria for the composition of a work for guitar and strings quartet, for a new concert. Created between the months of December 2016 and July 2017, he was inspired by the history of Altamira Castle (Elche - Spain) and the Influence of the Mediterranean Sea. It's a new twist in the compositional proposal of Gallardo Del Rey, extending his vision in post-romantic harmonies, typical of Russian masters and French impressionists. Altamira is undoubtedly due to its technical level, its effects and its melodic-harmonic treatment, a work that extends new sensations in an audience always receptive to the works of this Sevillian composer.

As a concert proposal, José María Gallardo Del Rey shows his interest in completing a program with works by Spanish authors, with a high level of interpretation and currently referred to in chamber music. It becomes a concert program, with a Spanish character and great interpretive freshness, thus obtaining a great acceptance to the lovers of the chamber music of Spanish authors.
