Auditorio de Tenerife, under the Cabildo de Tenerife’s Department of Culture run by councillor Enrique Arriaga, welcomes the regional phase of the 19th Intercentros Melómano in the Professional Degree category on Saturday, 21st November at 4:00 pm. The winner will represent the Canary Islands at the national competition, to be held on 5 December in Alicante.Six students of the professional conservatoires of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria specialising in different instruments: guitar, oboe, saxophone and clarinet, are taking part in the competition. They are free to choose what to play and their performance will be 15 minutes long at most. After playing, the jury will discuss the performances to then announce who will represent the Canaries in this contest. 


Seventeen regional musicians will compete at the final in Alicante for the prize: a tour across Spain including solo recitals and concerts with a symphony orchestra, like the one given by Orquesta Filarmonía Granada or the Festival de Música de Segovia-MUSEG.The Intercentros Melómano is an initiative of the Fundación Orfeo that was set up in 2002 with the aim of encouraging the active participation of conservatoire students in professional competitions. The idea is to give musicians a practical experience where they face an audience and a jury that will judge their interpretation, not just their technical skills.

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.

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. He regularly collaborates with ensembles and artists such as the London Conchord Ensemble, Cuarteto Casals, Francois Leleux, Pekka Kuusisto, Alexander Janiczek and Julian Milford.

The Ciclo de Cámara welcomes this flute, violin, viola and cello ensemble that will play Haydn, Hummel, Krommer and Mozart

 

The Ciclo de Cámara [Chamber Music series] of Auditorio de Tenerife, venue under the Cabildo de Tenerife’s Department of Culture run by councillor Enrique Arriaga, welcomes on Thursday, the 29th at 7:30 pm the concert Temperamentos by the Ensemble Hespérides. Tickets cost 15 euros and there are discounts available. You can buy them on https://auditoriodetenerife.com

The Ensemble Hespérides, that is playing at the Auditorio de Tenerife for the second time, is made up by Raquel Martorell, flute; David Ballesteros, violin; Macarena Pesutiç, viola; and Kathleen Balfe, cello. The repertoire includes London trio n.1 C Major by Joseph Haydn, Trio Eb Major s.30 by Johann Nepomuk Hummel, Flute quartet in F Major op.17 by Franz Krommer and Flute quartet in C Major k.285b by Wolfang Amadeus Mozart.

The title of the programme refers to the musical tuning systems. Since the Baroque period, irregular temperaments (French and German) gave each tonality special emotional characteristics, a fact that went on until the classical period, although equal temperament was gradually adopted until it became the norm in Western music during Classicism. This fact shows how stable the composition style was in this period: regular, balanced phrases whose difficulty lies on how tricky it is to convey all it comprises, although it is done with the naturalness and simplicity of a geometric shape that is apparently basic but has a wealth of content.

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.
