The Chamber Cycle of Auditorio de Tenerife presents the concert 'Revolución y transición' (Revolution and transition) by Ensemble Hespérides.
Revolution is defined as the action that comes from a desire to change, to progress, to evolve towards something better. All this brings along a moment of transition. Ensemble Hespérides wants to illustrate several kinds of revolutions and transitions through this programme.
Pleyel, Cambini and Hummel established or lived in Paris for part of their lives. All of them were affected by the French Revolution in the midst of a classical period. This fact deeply affected the transition to the Romantic period, which they experienced during a twenty-year period after the end of this revolution. They were greatly influenced by the way music was composed and performed.
But the term 'revolution' might also refer to new findings which are needed to adapt to the composers' and artists' new demands. This was the case of Ignaz Pleyel, the composer with whom we open this programme. Thanks to him, we can enjoy an instrument that radically changed from a harpsichord with plucked strings (characteristic of the Baroque and early Classicism) to the fortepiano, an instrument with struck strings and ancestor of today's piano.
These two completely different connotations of "revolution" will take us into the feature-rich world of Classicism as a musical style; the romantic brushstrokes show a wish to generate an artistic revolution.
