The guest pianist Rafael Bechacz will play under the direction of Víctor Pablo Pérez

 

 

The Symphony Orchestra of Tenerife (OST) is a project of the Island Council’s Department of Culture which is directed by Enrique Arriaga. This new concert will offer a look at the 19th century through selected works by Chopin and Sibelius, key Romantic composers who also represent the musical nationalism movement. On Friday, the 28th of May at 7:30 pm, Víctor Pablo Pérez, the honorary conductor of the Orchestra, will conduct the musical programme. During this concert, the Polish pianist Rafael Bechacz will make his debut with the OST.

Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849) is considered to be the first "poet of the piano" and one of the most attractive figures of the Romantic period. He mainly composed for piano. His music is highly regarded for its lyricism, purity, delicate charm and virtuosity. The Piano Concerto No. 1 in E Minor, which in fact is the second concert chronologically speaking, belongs to the composer’s Polish period before moving to Paris and making it his adopted city. The concert was premièred in 1830 in Warsaw. It was also the last concert Chopin gave in his home country and the second concert to launch his career as a prodigy.  The result is undoubtedly the work of a genius with a unique voice.

Finland had no significant musical tradition before Jean Sibelius (1865-1957). The composer’s early works were imbued with nationalist fervour and had a late Romantic style too. The Symphony Orchestra of Tenerife will play his Symphony No. 2 in D Major during the second half of the concert. This work marks the end of a highly creative and fruitful period known as "nationalist romanticism", which he rejected in later scores. It is the most universally known of the seven symphonies Sibelius wrote, and it was composed after 'Finland'. According to critics, this symphony has "a significant political component". Sibeliuscompleted it in 1902. The work was adopted by the Finnish as a song of combat and liberation against the Russian oppressor and the musical expression of their nationalist aspirations.

Víctor Pablo Pérez, the honorary conductor of the Symphony Orchestra of Tenerife, studied at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Madrid and at the Hochschule für Musik in Munich. He was artistic director and chief conductor of the Symphony Orchestra of Asturias between 1980 and 1988 and of the Symphony Orchestra of Tenerife between 1986 and 2005. In 1993 he started to conduct the Symphony Orchestra of Galicia, a task he carried out until 2013. That year he joined the Orchestra and Choir of the Community of Madrid as artistic director and conductor. Since January 2017 he has been the artistic director of the Youth Orchestra of the Canary Islands.

Rafał Blechacz has been distinguished with numerous awards and accolades from critics, producers and artists as one of the best interpreters of Chopin's piano works of his generation. He started playing the piano at the age of five and finished his piano studies in 2007 at the Bydgoszcz Academy of Music with the piano professor Katarzyna Popowa-Zydroń. A year earlier, in 2006, he signed an exclusive agreement with the German record company Deutsche Grammophon’, becoming thus the second Polish pianist after Krystian Zimerman to sign with said label.

Tickets can be purchased until two hours before the concert on the website www.sinfonicadetenerife.es 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, except on holidaysThe audience is requested to arrive at the venue well in advance to enter the Auditorium in staggered "waves" to enjoy this cultural experience.

Raúl Cantizano and ‘Los Voluble’ feature this Saturday's show, and the in-residence "Cabin fever" finishes on that day

 

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the islands’ Minister of Culture Enrique Arriaga. This week two initiatives of the NUMAcircuit Festival (Creation and Experimentation Festival of the Canary Islands) are presented. On Saturday, 22 May, the in-residence 'Cabin fever' finishes with the presentation of a show that is already sold out: the audio-visual concert Zona Acordonada by Raúl Cantizano and ‘Los Voluble’ at 7:30 pm in the Chamber Hall. Tickets for this show are still available.

‘Zona acordonada' is a hybrid and transmedia guitar concert. Musicians use guitar, electronics, flamenco and live audiovisual creation to pull on the strings, to shift points of view and to show our society, art and culture during this "new normality”.

The aim of this project is to research into a new scenic, visual, performative and musical language, expanding the usual space that the guitar player has. This atypical recital broadens the guitar space with lighting, live video, action and music to create a renewed and modern format. It also gathers different ways of understanding the stage and the instrument, from its most classical to its most innovative dimension.

Raúl Cantizano and ‘Los Voluble’ have been working together since the year 2012. The different methodologies and interest in working with flamenco style from unusual and different perspectives led them to create DEF ‘DiálogosElectroFlamencos’ (Electronic-Flamenco Dialogues) together with Santiago Barber. These Electronic-Flamenco Dialogues open up spaces in the flamenco style to further search for mediation, training and experimentation. They also design other creative methodological devices for artistic and social reflection.

The artistic in-residence Cabin fever approaches concepts like eroticism, power and isolation. To do so, the artists use aesthetic and expressive tools such as body and object’s movement, sound (of bodies, voice, instruments and objects), video, space itself and its potential transformations.

The member artists of this in-residence are María García Fuentes (technical production, set design and lighting designer) Cristina Hernández Cruz (dance, performance, actress), Alejandra Galo (audio-visual narrator, scriptwriter and cultural firebrand) and Elsa Mateu Tricás (cellist, lighting designer and set designer).

Through these disciplines, the in-residence aims to generate a code that relates them, that transmits and evokes the different experiences and feelings born of all those concepts. Cabin fever is an erotic-immersive experience that shows how our senses produce an emotion that is transmitted through euphoria in all its forms.

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 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. During the purchase process, the user will have to choose between one or two pre-set seats distributed throughout the hall. The audience is requested to arrive at the venue well in advance to enter the auditorium in staggered "waves". 

By purchasing tickets, you accept the measures implemented by the cultural centre to combat Coronavirus, such as the correct use of masks and attendance to the event only with people you live with. All of the measures, as well as the contingency plan certified by AENOR, can be consulted on the Auditorium’s website.
