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.

The concert takes place in the Auditorio de Tenerife this Friday, 7 May at 7:30 pm.

 

 

The Symphony Orchestra of Tenerife is a project of the Island Council’s Department of Culture which is directed by Enrique Arriaga. This new season’s concert unites two great composers, Dmitri Shostakovich and Edward Elgar, whose Symphony No. 9 and Symphony No. 2 will be performed respectively. Both works bear witness to and reflect the era in which they were created. The concert takes place this Friday, 7 May at 7:30 pm in the Auditorio de Tenerife and will be conducted by Antonio Méndez. 

Dmitri Shostakovich (1906-1975) was considered one of the most popular composers of the mid-20th century. Through his music, the composer was a witness and a chronicler of a time when all artistic expressions were crucial for political power. Against this background, he became a controversial figure that had to show two faces: on the one hand, he was the first author to be trained under the umbrella of the new Soviet regime, exalted and distinguished. On the other hand, in the mid-1930s his career was marked by criticism, harsh calls for order and prohibition. 

His Symphony No. 9 in E flat major, op. 70 belongs to this period. When Shostakovich premiered it, it not only astonished the audience but also kindled the wrath of Stalin, as a grandiose score to celebrate victory at the end of World War II was expected to sound. Yet the result was the shortest and lightest of his 15 symphonies.

Edward Elgar (1857-1934) was a musician associated with the optimism and opulence of the Victorian and Edwardian periods. His work is both ceremonial and sensitive, though steeped in the Germanic tradition. He wrote two symphonies and sketched a third, which he never completed. During the last fifteen years of his life his output declined, partly because, after the First World War, England had nothing to do with the place where he had grown up.

The Symphony No. 2 in E flat major, op. 63 reflects many sides of the composer's character: noble, introverted and confident. Then again, it was created at a time when Elgar was beginning to feel a deep disappointment with the society of his time. He began to write it in 1909 when strong tensions arose and led to the war. He intended to dedicate this symphony to King Edward VII during his lifetime, but the monarch passed away before it was finished. However, in the score there appeared a dedication to "his late Majesty, the King".

Antonio Méndez has been the main conductor of the OST since the 2018/2019 season. He is also one of the most requested and established conductors of his generation; this has enabled him to establish close links with the most important European orchestras. During his distinguished career, he has conducted international ensembles such as Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, hr-Sinfonieorchester, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Staatskapelle Dresden, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg.

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" to enjoy this cultural experience.
