The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the island’s Minister of Culture, Mr Enrique Arriaga. This Thursday, the 20th of May at 7:30 pm, it offers the concert ‘Circa 1721’. The ensemble will play works by Bach, Händel and Vivaldi. Tickets for this concert are sold out. The Baroque Orchestra of Tenerife, under the direction of Alfonso Sebastián, wants to pay a new tribute to Bach and his contemporaries, Händel and Vivaldi, with a chamber music selection of works that have accompanied us since 1721. The concert coincides with the 300th anniversary of Johann Sebastian Bach's final autographed copies of the Brandenburg Concertos.

The programme comprises four pieces. The concert will begin with the Concerto No. 7, in D minor by Vivaldi, to continue with the Trio Sonata in F Major Op. 2, No. 4. HWV 389 by Händel to finish with two works by Bach: Prelude and fugue in c major, and the Brandenburg Concerto in D major.

Tomorrow Wednesday, the 19th of May at 11:00 am, the Baroque Orchestra of Tenerife will also introduce this proposal to seventy primary schoolchildren of Punta Brava, Puerto de la Cruz who will attend said concert. 

Alfonso Sebastián (Zaragoza, 1974) will conduct again The Baroque Orchestra of Tenerife during this concert. The Aragon-born musician is the guest conductor of the 'Orquesta Vigo430' and a member of the group 'Los Músicos de Su Alteza'. He not only collaborates with the Tenerife ensemble, but also with the ensemble La Tempestad, Al Ayre Español, the baroque orchestras of Seville and the University of Salamanca and the Symphony Orchestra of Castilla y León. He has been a teacher for harpsichord and ground bass at the professional Music Conservatory of Salamanca since 1999.

The Baroque Orchestra of Tenerife was founded by the association 'Asociación para la Normalización de la Música Antigua en Canarias'. It has organised this concert in collaboration with the ‘San Miguel Arcángel Royal Canarian Academy of Fine Arts’. The aim of this association is to promote young performers who play period styles and instruments. To do so, it provides the appropriate coordination platform to promote the historical musical heritage and to get new audiences closer to all musical forms of the 17th and 18th centuries.

During this Sunday's performance, the contemporary dance piece will merge choreography, flesh and grammar

 

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the councillor Enrique Arriaga. On Sunday, the 23rd of May, it presents the dance show Teorema, by the choreographer and dancer Javier Martín. This contemporary dance piece merges choreography, flesh and grammar and will take place next Sunday [23 May] at 7:30 pm at the Auditorium's Symphony Hall. 

In Teorema, the body's resonances comprise a soundscape for dance. They unfold in a score-like space where objects such as smoke, coal, rope, ice, or glass are mysteriously arranged to bloom. The dancing body livens up the space for dance. The body symphony is the space symphony and vice versa. 

Teorema is a proposal on the relationship between the inner and the outer world, between matter and memory. It encourages us to question and break with the inertias through which we perceive ourselves and relate to our environment. Nothing is as it seems.

The creative process of Teorema went from October 2019 until its premiere in November 2020 at the cultural centre Paco Rabal (Madrid). The premiere coincided with the 15th anniversary of Javier Martín's professional career. The Galician creator acknowledges that during all this time, he has researched the arts of movement from an epistemological and critical perspective.

Since he started to dance professionally in 2005, Javier Martín has created sixteen full-length stage pieces and more than twenty short performances or specific pieces for several cultural spaces. Through the work he is presenting at the Auditorio de Tenerife, the Galician creator considers it "a project of maturity or progress in my career but true to itself". 

Tickets can be purchased until two hours before the concert on the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com and by dialling the phone number 902 317 327 from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturdays 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The audience is requested to arrive at the venue well in advance to enter the auditorium in staggered "waves".

Educational sessions begin and are complemented by a sold-out family concert

 

 

The Symphony Orchestra of Tenerife is a project of the Island Council’s Department of Culture which is directed by Enrique Arriaga. This Thursday, 13 May, it held the first socio-educational concert of a series prepared for this week. Under the title ‘Beethoven and other heroes’, the concert also takes place on Friday, 14 May, in the Auditorium's Symphony Hall.

Some 250 secondary education schoolchildren and vulnerable groups of nine educational centres will participate in this live music experience. The story, through live music, revolves around heroic characters with a desire for freedom. Irene Gómez Calado conducts the work of the German composer accompanied by the narration of Ana Hernández Sanchiz.

This proposal is part of the Island Council’s commitment to offering a first-class cultural programme within the reach of society as a whole. Its performance is open to the general public through the family concert, which takes place on Saturday, 15 May, on the same stage. There will be a single performance at 12:00 noon, and the tickets are sold out. 

Through didactic recitals, the Symphony Orchestra of Tenerife continues its socio-educational work aimed at the most vulnerable groups and schoolchildren. Some 250 students are expected to see this performance during the two didactic sessions. Specifically, secondary school pupils from Teobaldo Power, Benito Pérez Armas and El Sobradillo secondary schools will attend the concert. Other groups will also join the concert: Orobal (Arona), Centro Probosco (La Orotava), San Juan de Dios (Santa Cruz), Asociación Canaria del Trastorno del Espectro del Autismo APANATE (La Laguna), Asociación Asperger Islas Canarias ASPERCAN (La Laguna) and Fundación Tutelar Sonsoles Soriano (Santa Cruz).

The symphonic narration by Ana Hernández Sanchiz will focus on the compositions of Ludwig van Beethoven. The narrator brings us closer to heroic characters who fight for human values and their community. They are characterised by a combination of Beethoven's own passionate spirit and tenderness. The programme will thus be made up of the overtures Coriolanus, Egmont and Leonora 3. The three characters represent the moral principles of the struggle for freedom. 

The concert is completed with Symphony No. 3, also called "The Heroic". At first, this legend-laden work was dedicated to Bonaparte. However, when Napoleon had himself crowned emperor, Beethoven crossed out the name.
