Tras haberse agotado las entradas del viernes 4 de diciembre, el Cabildo de Tenerife abre un concierto adicional para el jueves 3

 

La Sinfónica de Tenerife, que depende del Área de Cultura del Cabildo Insular de Tenerife dirigida por el consejero Enrique Arriaga, ofrece su quinto programa en doble sesión, el jueves [día 3 de diciembre] y el viernes [día 4], ambos las 19:30 horas en el Auditorio de Tenerife. El director honorario, de la formación insular, Víctor Pablo Pérez, se pondrá al frente de la misma y contará con el violinista Nemanja Radulovic como solista invitado.

La Orquesta del Cabildo interpretará un programa compuesto por el Concierto para violín y orquesta nº 3 en Sol mayor Strassburg, K 216, de Wolfgang A. Mozart, y Sinfonía nº 3 en Mi bemol mayor Heroica, op. 55, de Ludwig V. Beethoven.

Tras haberse agotado las entradas para elconcierto del viernes, se ha habilitado un concierto adicional el jueves. Las nuevas localidades se pueden adquirir de la forma habitual, en la página web www.auditoriodetenerife.com y de forma telefónica en el 902 317 327 de lunes a viernes de 10:00 a 17:00 horas y sábados de 10:00 a 14:00 horas, excepto festivos. También se pueden conseguir, en el mismo horario, en taquilla solicitando cita previa en www.auditoriodetenerife.com/contactar y en el 922 568 625, de lunes a viernes de 10:00 a 14:00 horas, excepto festivos.

Para disfutar de esta experiencia musical es necesario llegar al recinto con antelación suficiente para realizar una entrada escalonada a la sala y cumplir con las medidas de Auditorio de Tenerife para hacer frente a la COVID-19, como el uso correcto y continuado de la mascarilla o la asistencia solo con convivientes. El plan de contingencia de Auditorio, certificado por AENOR, se puede consultar en su web.

El Concierto para violín y orquesta nº 3 en Sol mayor Strassburg, K 216, de Wolfgang A. Mozart, fue escrito en su etapa como konzertmeister para el arzobispo de Salzburgo, tras su visita a Italia para estudiar la escritura violinística trasalpina. Este concierto, considerado de gran pureza, presenta una manufactura elegante y ligera en el que hilvana diferentes temas, ideas y adornos.

El Allegro inicial arranca de forma galante y brillante con un tema extraído de su ópera Il re pastore. El diálogo entre oboes y violines introducen el segundo tema y será una dinámica permanente durante elAdagio. El concierto concluye con un Rondó afrancesado, donde Mozart introduce efectos con juguetones tresillos, pizzicatti, e incluso melodías populares.

La Sinfonía nº 3 en Mi bemol mayor Heroica, op. 55, de Ludwig V. Beethoven, fue estrenada en 1805 y recibe su nombre de la admiración del compositor a los valores morales, políticos, humanistas de la Revolución Francesa. Considerada como una pieza que muestra la transición hacia el Romanticismo, esta partitura deja entrever los tormentosos episodios personales del teutón, aquejado ya de una profunda sordera.

Beethoven insufla desde el primer movimiento, un Allegro con brio, numerosos motivos dramáticos. En el posterior desarrollo de la obra, destaca un enérgico Scherzo, una novedosa fórmula que, posteriormente se convertiría en su símbolo más característico, para desembocar en un Finale en la misma línea, cargado de vitalismo.

El violinista Nemanja Radulovic regresa a la isla tras su última participación con la Sinfónica de Tenerife, en abril de 2013. El maestro nace en Serbia en 1985 y estudia en la Facultad de las Artes y Música de Belgrado. Tras proseguir sus estucios en Alemania y en el Conservatorio de París, se alza con el reconocimiento Artista Revelación del 2005 de Victoires de la musique classique. También conquista el Concurso Internacional de Joseph Joachim en Hannover, el George Enescu en Bucharest, el Stradivarius en Cremona y el Echo Klassik en 2015.

En 2019 debuta en los BBC Proms con la Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, y Kirill Karabits, tocando Barber. Entre sus próximos compromisos destaca una gira europea con la Russian State Academic Symphony y Andrey Boreyko; su debut con la Gothenburg Symphony, Philharmonia Orchestra, Sydney Symphony, MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony, Dusseldorf Symphony, RTE National Symphony Dublin, y Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg.

Singers Yolanda Auyanet and Antonino Siragusa star in the show at Sala Sinfónica on the 24th, 26th and 28th

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife welcomes the eagerly anticipated premiere of the opera Lucrezia Borgia. The details of the show were revealed by the Cabildo de Tenerife’s Councillor of Culture, Enrique Arriaga; soprano Yolanda Auyanet, who plays the leading role; renowned Italian tenor as Gennaro, Antonino Siragusa; stage director, Silvia Paoli, and musical director, Andriy Yurkevych. This opera, which had to be cancelled in March due to health crisis, can be enjoyed on 24, 26 and 28 November at the Sala Sinfónica of Auditorio de Tenerife at 7:00 pm, half an hour earlier than usual. 

Enrique Arriaga said he felt “proud of the effort made by Auditorio de Tenerife’s team to get the show off the ground, despite having to adapt it to the new safety measures”. “Auditorio de Tenerife is one of the few cultural venues that can still put on shows of this kind with full guarantees, because this is a safe show”, he stated, adding that tickets for Saturday are sold out, “but you still have the chance to come on the premiere or on Thursday”.

Yolanda Auyanet, an internationally successful Canarian soprano, admitted she was “delighted to be back here to do our Lucrezia”. “I’d like to thank Ópera de Tenerife and the Cabildo de Tenerife for their effort, because I know it’d have been very easy to cancel or postpone it but they decided to go ahead and that’s something culture in this country is going to be very grateful for”, the singer concluded.

Antonino Siragusa, one of the best tenors at present, confessed that “it’s a great satisfaction to be back on a stage after so many months”. “The organization of Ópera de Tenerife makes us feel calm because all the necessary measures are applied to make sure it is absolutely safe to work here”, added the singer, who is making his debut with this production in the role of Gennaro.

For Silvia Paoli “Ópera de Tenerife is my family, I feel at home and thank them for their love”. The stage director stated that “hope is fundamental to continue, and that’s what we’re offering with this Lucrezia Borgia”. “It’s difficult to understand the amount of people who work in shows”, Paoli added, to then point out that it is complicated to “redo the stage direction in four days, having to apply safety measures, including facemasks and distances”.

Maestro Yurkevych recalled that “landing at the airport was like getting back home, like a father returning home to see his children”. “When we left in March our heart remained here, our work was halfway through and now, when I saw my score again I felt as if it were a sacred book that can save our civilization”, shared the maestro, who also mentioned how complex it is to work as the choir wears facemasks and the Sinfónica de Tenerife has readjusted the number of musicians and their layout. “Through what we’re doing, we’re sending a message to the world, that’s watching us”, the musical director added.

This Lucrezia Borgia by Gaetano Donizetti, a co-production led by Ópera de Tenerife with Teatro Comunale di Bologna, Ópera de Oviedo and Teatro de la Maestranza in Seville, is back after applying all the safety and hygiene measures both in front and behind the stage, offering a show that is adapted to the current circumstances and is absolutely safe both for the audience and the artists. 

Silvia Paoli transfers the opera to Mussolini’s fascist Italy to reinforce the sense of oppression and claustrophobia the story suggests, specifically setting it in a slaughter house, which is recreated on the stage with a wealth of details by stage designer Andrea Belli, costumes by Valeria Donata Bettella and Alessandro Carletti’s lighting design. This is Paoli’s fourth title in Ópera de Tenerife, after La Cenerentola (2014), Le nozze di Figaro (2015) and I Capuleti e i Montecchi (2017), which are productions of the Opera (e)Studio programme. She recently directed Otello (Verdi) at the Teatro Sociale in Como and Enrico di Borgogna (Donizetti) in the Festival Donizetti in Bergamo. 

The Sinfónica de Tenerife will play under the baton of Yurkevych, musical director at the Teatr Wielki Opera Norodowa (Polish National Opera),one of the most sought-after conductors internationally. Maestro Yurkevych is making his debut with Ópera de Tenerife leading the Sinfónica and the Coro de Ópera de Tenerife after a long career as resident conductor at the Solomiya Krushelnitska Opera and Ballet Theatre, principal conductor at the Teatrul Naţional de Operă şi Balet in the Republic of Moldova and at the Teatr Wielki in Poland. He has also been musical director at Odessa’s Opera and Ballet Theatre. He is regularly invited to major theatres, festivals, and institutions worldwide. 

The leading role, Lucrezia Borgia, will be played by Canarian soprano Yolanda Auyanet, who is joined by internationally successful tenor Antonino Siragusa as Gennaro, bass Simone Alberghini playing Alfonso I d’Este, Duca di Ferrara, mezzosoprano Na’ama Goldman as Maffio Orsini, tenor Jorge Franco in the role of Jeppo Liverotto; bass Pablo Gálvez as Don Aposto Gazella, bass Daniele Terenzi as Ascanio Petrucci, tenor David Astorga playing Oloferno Vitellozzo, bass Borja Molina as Gubetta, tenor Mario Méndez as Rustighello and bass Eugenio Di Lieto as Astolfo.

The Coro de la Ópera de Tenerife is made up of the extras plus the voices of tenors and baritones and it will play a special role in this staging in which Auditorio’s Sala Sinfónica will shine again with the stage design, the orchestra, and the voices. 

Lucrezia Borgia is a melodrama in a prologue and two acts with music by Donizetti and libretto by Felice Romani. It is based on a drama, with the same title, by French writer Victor Hugo, loosely inspired by the historical figure of Lucrezia Borgia. It was premiered at the Teatro alla Scala de Milan on 26 December 1833. The composer looks deeply into the morbid legend of Pope Alessandro VI’s daughter who grew up in a family surrounded by rumours of incest, adultery, infidelity, betrayal, murder, and horror, creating a strong psychological portrait of a powerful but fragile woman.

The Ciclo de Cámara of the Cabildo’s cultural venue brings this 17th century violin music programme on Thursday, the 19th

 

Auditorio de Tenerife, a cultural venue under the Cabildo de Tenerife’s Department of Culture run by councillor Enrique Arriaga, brings the concert La bellezza. The Beauty of 17th century violin music with renowned violinist Lina Tur Bonet and the MUSIca ALcheMica ensemble. Part of the Auditorio Chamber Music series, the concert is taking place on Thursday, the 19th at 7:30 pm in the Sala de Cámara.

The programme includes a range of works from the Stylus Phantasticus and early Baroque, combining music from two of the most active centres at the time: Italy and Central Europe. It is a compilation of what could be called “the most beautiful music ever written", and it combines the famous folliaspassacaglias and ciacconas with some bizzarrie or works that, through its symbols and sounds, aim at amazing and enchant the audience. 

Imitations of other instruments, scordature of violins tuned in a different way, wildness in the shape of quasi Dyonisian music and heavenly passacaglie... utter exuberance of sound for the senses in a period that, above all, aimed at touching the soul and give maximum expression to human passions through the music of the spheres. 

The programme makes an interesting route across violin music composed in the 17th century including works by authors like Dario Castello (1590 - 1630), Biagio Marini (1594 - 1663), Giovanni Girolamo Kapsberger (1580-1651), Marco Uccellini (1603? - 1680), Gian Paolo Cima (1570 - 1622), J. P. von Westhoff (1656 - 1705), Biagio Marini (1594 - 1663) and Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber (1644 - 1704).

In addition to Lina Tur Bonet playing the violin and conducting the concert, other ensemble performers include: Pavel Amílcar, violin; Marco Ceccato, cello; Ismael Campanero, double bass; Jadran Duncumb theorbo; Marta Graziolino, Baroque harp; and Dani Espasa, harpsichord.

Lina Tur Bonet is founder and director of the MUSIca ALcheMIca ensemble, that made its debut at the Vila Musica Mainz and at Potsdam Festival with Handel’s opera Alessandro, directed by Alan Curtis.

The group enjoys international recognition thanks to their award-winning recordings and plays in Europe, America and Asia, and always includes first-rate world musicians. It was set up with the aim of interpreting music from all times and of embarking on cross-disciplinary and pedagogic projects. 

Tickets can be booked up to two hours before the show start via the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com and by telephone on 902  317 327 Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, except holidays.

After performing in Barcelona and Málaga Auditorio de Tenerife’s company closes their autumn tour in A Coruña on Friday

 

Lava, the dance company of Auditorio de Tenerife, under the Cabildo de Tenerife’s Department of Culture run by councillor Enrique Arriaga, will be in Valencia and A Coruña this week to end their autumn tour. The Canarian company will perform Beyond and Bending the Walls at 9:30 pm at the Teatro Principal de Valencia to open the Dansa València, the Instituto Valenciano de Cultura dance festival. They will be on the stage of the Teatro Rosalía de Castro in A Coruña on Friday, the 13th.  

After visiting Barcelona and Málaga, Valencia is Lava’s next destination where they will open the Dansa València 2020. The festival was originally scheduled for March but had to be postponed due to the health crisis. Lava will close their autumn tour in A Coruña on Friday, 13 November. They will perform their double programme in the Teatro Rosalía de Castro at 8:30 pm as part of the venue’s regular contemporary dance programme. Dancers performing in the Lava tour include Fabiana Mangialardi, Emiliana Battista Marino, Amanda Rubio, Javier de la Asunción, Javier Arozena, and Adrián Díaz.

Bending the Walls, by choreographer Fernando Hernando Magadan, is an exploration of the world of restrictions and limitations in the search for happiness, freedom and understanding. The piece explores the physical and psychological limits of the individual and the world around them. It is a metaphor about the psychological, physical, and emotional forces human beings can approach in order to reach beyond palpable reality, overcome sorrow and escape into the world of the imagination.

Beyond, by Virginia García and Damián Muñoz of La intrusa, deals with the experience of searching through the emotional landscapes of memory, presenting a scenario of uncertainty that forces us to constantly create or reflect on our own life journey, on the landscape that every individual, consciously or fortuitously, gradually builds.

Lava Compañía de Danza is an Auditorio de Tenerife project that was set up in 2018 with Tenerife dancer and creator Daniel Abreu (Premio Nacional de Danza 2014) as artistic director. The company has a special interest in contemporary dance, and it focuses on building a repertoire of works by renowned international artists.

Six dancers with a strong presence on the stage, technically sound and versatile bring to life creations that share a contemporary dance language and other codes of today’s art discourse.

The British conductor replaces Lucas Macías and has clarinettist Maximiliano Martín as guest soloist

 

 

The Sinfónica de Tenerife, under the Cabildo de Tenerife’s Department of Culture run by councillor Enrique Arriaga, is giving its fourth season concert on Friday the 6th at 7:30 pm in Auditorio de Tenerife. Conductor Catherine Larsen-Maguir is making her debut with the Tenerife ensemble, replacing conductor Lucas Macías. On this occasion the guest soloist is clarinettist Maximiliano Martín Lechado.

The Cabildo’s ensemble will play with the current reduced orchestra a programme featuring Quiet City and Clarinet Concerto, both by Aaron Copland and Ludwig van Beethoven‘s Symphony nº 4 in B flat major, op 60.

Tickets can be booked via the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com and by telephone on 902  317 327 Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, except holidays. You can also make an appointment to come to the box office on //www.auditoriodetenerife.com/en/contact-us and on 922 568 625, where they can also answer all your queries Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, except holidays.

To enjoy this cultural experience please make sure you arrive at the venue with time enough to enter the auditorium gradually. Buying the tickets implies the user unconditionally accepts the contents of the measures implemented by the Auditorio de Tenerife to deal with COVID-19, with no exceptions or reservations, including wearing a face mask or coming only with people you live with.  The full measures and the AENOR-certified contingency plan are available on Auditorio’s website. Both the GastroMag and the car park are open to the public. 

North American Aaron Copland pens two of the pieces in the concert. The first one was written in 1940 for Irwin Shaw‘s theatre play of the same title about the conflicts of Gabriel Mellon, a middle-aged businessman. The composer displays a creativity where the constructive weight lies on the English horn and the trumpet. A sound metaphor, the trumpet seems to represent the longing for a better life in which Mellon would have fulfilled his dream of being a poet while the English horn evokes the reality he has been led to. 

Clarinet Concerto was a commission for jazz star Benny Goodman and was first played in 1950 with the NBC Symphony Orchestra. The author explores this instrument with the intention of eliminating the artificial division between “popular and learned”. He challenges the established canon and gives more weight to the string section, which recalls the typical sound of a jazz orchestra. 

Ludwig van Beethoven composed his Symphony nº 4 in B flat major, op 60 during the summer and autumn of 1806. There was great expectation as his Third Symphony (Eroica) had been very well received. The success of the score lies in “extracting the maximum out of a very simple material”, as Brahms described it. So, in the development there is a highly contrasted tonality where time seems to stop and expand.  

British Catherine Larsen-Maguire has been exclusively concentrated on orchestra conducting since 2012, after gaining a thorough knowledge of the repertoire and an understanding of the orchestra’s psychology. 

Larsen-Maguire read Music at the University of Cambridge and studied the bassoon at London Royal Academy of Music and at the Karajan Academy in Berlin. In 1996 she took the top prize in the Prague Spring Bassoon Competition.

The orchestras she has conducted include  Bremen, Magdeburg, Augsburg and Nuremburg Philharmonic Orchestras, the orchestra of the Komische Oper Berlin, the Bochum Symphony Orchestra, the Deutsches Kammerorchester Berlin, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Orquesta Ciudad de Granada, the Belgrade Philharmonic, the Slovenian Radio Orchestra plus the orchestras of the Sunflower and Buzzards Bay festivals in the United States and the Orquesta Filarmónica de la UNAM, the Orquesta Sinfónica de Xalapa and the Orquesta Filarmónica de Boca del Río, in Mexico.

Clarinettist Maximiliano Martín, currently soloist at the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, has performed in prestigious venues including the BBC Proms Cadogan Hall, Wigmore Hall in London, the Library of Congress in Washington, Hamburg’s Laeiszhalle, Slovenia Radio Auditorium in Ljubljana, Durban City Hall in South Africa, Palau de la Música in Barcelona, Teatro Monumental in Madrid, Auditorio Alfredo Kraus in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria or the Auditorio Principe Felipe in Oviedo.

Martín has performed solo with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Sinfónica del Principado de Asturias, European Union Chamber Orchestra, Real Filarmonía de Galicia, Filarmónica de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and the Macedonian Philharmonic, with conductors like Brüggen, Ticciati, Antonini, Swensen, Zacharias or González.
