Piano, violín y danza darán vida a este programa, con obras de Piazzolla, Satie, Martinů, Kabalevsky, Rivero, Dvořák y Pärtla

 

El Auditorio de Tenerife, espacio que depende del Área de Cultura del Cabildo que dirige el consejero Enrique Arriaga, programa el concierto Microcosmos, del Ensemble Resonancias, para este jueves [día 17] a las 19:30 horas en la Sala de Cámara. El programa será interpretado por la bailarina Paloma Hurtado, el pianista Javier Lanis y el violinista David Ballesteros, e incluye el estreno mundial de la obra Índigo, de la compositora canaria Celia Rivero.

Este espectáculo de danza y música está basado en miniaturas musicales coreografiadas que describen los diversos reflejos del universo sonoro que nos rodea permanentemente. A manera de relatos breves, estas piezas tienen una identidad importante y logran una gran profundidad. 

Antonín Dvořák escribió a su editor Simrock: “Disfruto creando tanto estas obras como escribiendo sinfonías”. “Beethoven o Schumann también compusieron piezas breves cuando lo sintieron necesario”, analizó el compositor acerca de esta pulsión.

De esta manera, el nuevo tango de Astor Piazzolla, el enigmático Erik Satie y la meditativa Spiegel im Spiegel (Espejo en el Espejo) de Arvo Pärt son ejes fundamentales en el programa Microcosmos. Además, sonarán Cuatro piezas románticas op.75 de Dvořák, Intermezzo H261 de Bohuslav Martinů y Seis piezas breves de Dmitri Kabalevsky, entre otras composiciones.

Las entradas se pueden adquirir hasta quince minutos antes del comienzo del espectáculo en la página web www.auditoriodetenerife.com, en la taquilla de lunes a viernes de 10:00 a 17:00 horas y sábados de 10:00 a 14:00 horas y de forma telefónica llamando al 902 317 327 en el mismo horario.

The performances of this opera in Spanish by the Mexican composer Daniel Catán take place on the 22, 24 and 26 of March

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife produces the Spanish première of the opera Florencia in the Amazonby the Mexican composer Daniel Catán (1949-2011). The performances take place on the 22nd, 24th and 26th of March at the Symphony Hall at 7:30 p.m. The details of this opera were given by Enrique Arriaga, the Island’s Minister of Culture of Tenerife Island Council, Pedro Halffter, the musical director, and Chía Patiño, the stage director.

Enrique Arriaga explained that with 'Florencia in the Amazon', Opera de Tenerife introduces Latin American compositions. “After an extensive tour around the opera houses of America and with just two premières in Europe (Germany and Switzerland), this title is now premièring Spain, created by the Mexican writer Marcela Fuentes-Berain, who will come in person to the première in Tenerife, and it is nourished by the magical realism of her friend Gabriel García Márquez; inspiration that will be sprinkled over the entire stage" stated Arriaga. The vice-president of the Island Council also made it clear that "The Auditorium of Tenerife will continue to commit to a quality culture”.

Pedro Halffter, who will lead the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra, thanked the Island Council and Opera de Tenerife for once again having him conduct. “I feel a little from the Canary Islands due to my links to this region, which I frequently visit for Opera de Tenerife and the FIMC (the Canary Islands International Music Festival)” he explained. The maestro shared that he himself was responsible for the musical direction of the Swiss version of Florencia in the Amazon. “It is an extraordinary opera of lush beauty and with an epic musical score that brings to mind the magical sounds of the rainforest”. 

Sandra López, an American soprano with a Cuban father and Ecuadorian mother who will play Florencia, acknowledged that she feels "thankful and honoured to be here with this great role, which has a great human and poetic bareness”. The singer highlighted "how fragile Florencia is, she is going through a period of crisis in her life and needs to find herself again”. “The audience will feel they identify with some of the characters who are going through different stages of life" concluded the soloist. 

The Tenerife tenor Airam Hernández stressed "the sense of being twins that Canarians have always felt with Latin America, and that is something that will be experienced intensely in this opera”. With regard to his character, Arcadio, nephew of the captain, he explained that "he is a young man from a small town with the mentality of someone who has been conquered, and the people of Tenerife will perfectly understand that feeling, as well as the many nods that are given in the opera”.

As for the cast, the soprano Sandra López and the tenor Airam Hernández are joined by the Brazilian soprano Lina Mendes, who plays Rosalba, the journalist who writes about Grimaldi. The Spanish baritones José Julián Frontal and Àngel Òdena will play Álvaro, the partner of Paula, and Riolobo, a mysterious being from the rainforest, respectively; the American mezzo-soprano Adriana Zabala will play Paula, and the Mexican bass Alejandro López will be the boat captain.

Patiño completes her team with the North American stage designer Izmir Ickbal, the Brazilian costume designer Felype de Lima, the American lighting designer Erin Fleming and the Spanish designer and puppet master Alejandra Prieto. 

The proposal of Patiño is based on the concept of a de-constructed boat, wild nature, a little fantasy and, as a new addition, puppets of butterflies and birds are included on the stage, among other elements, which will assist the dreamlike narration, and they will be the responsibility of the puppeteers, a team of local operators directed by Alejandra Prieto. For part of the props, there was a collaboration from the Fernando Estévez Higher School of Art and Design. The stage design was produced at the Workshop of Stage Training of the Auditorium of Tenerife.

The Choir of the Opera of Tenerife, directed by Carmen Cruz, will be present in the show, always integrated into the plot, which begins at the port of Leticia, in Colombia, and whose destination is Manaus, in Brazil.

This opera by Catán, a lover of bel canto melody, who contributed his passion and originality to the genre, had its world première in 1996 as a commission of the Houston Grand Opera. This opera in Spanish speaks of Florencia Grimaldi, a diva who returns to her town, where her love blossomed for a butterfly hunter, Cristóbal Ribeiro da Silva. She left it all behind for her career and now she is returning in search of the long-awaited reunion.

The story begins at the start of the 20th century in the port of Leticia, Colombia, from where this long journey departs along the Amazon River to Manaus, in Brazil. This destination itself is home to one of the most exaggerated fantasy -and real- stories of Latin America, linked to the opera: the construction of a theatre in the middle of the rainforest.

Everyone travelling on this boat, El Dorado, shares the same hope: to hear the diva Florencia Grimaldi on her return to her homeland. The boat sets sail, and with it, this crossing of love and desire where each character is going to discover their inner journey and the true magic of the Amazon River will reveal all its secrets.

Tickets can be purchased until fifteen minutes before each performance on the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com, at the auditorium's box office or 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. By purchasing tickets, you accept the measures implemented by the cultural centre to combat COVID-19, such as the correct use of masks.

The programme includes original pieces by the Italian musician and adaptations of compositions by Ennio Morricone

 

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 Enrique Arriaga. This Saturday [12th] at 7:30 p.m the Auditorium welcomes a concert by the Gino Marcelli Trio. The programme will consist of original music by the Italian musician and Marcelli’s own arrangements of works by the renowned composer Ennio Morricone.

This jazz trio features, in addition to Gino Marcelli on the piano, the musicians Tomás López-Perea on the double bass and Sergio Díaz on the drums – both from the Canary Islands. Some of Marcelli's songs that will be played during the concert include The Garden of the Simple, Strange Blues, Angela, and Landscape. Likewise, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly and Gabriel’s Oboe are examples of the Italian musician's versions of pieces by Ennio Morricone, which will also be played this Saturday.

Born in Sermoneta (Latina, Italy), Marcelli is an active composer, arranger, pianist, and producer. At the age of nine he began with music, studying under Professor Mariano de Falco. In 1983, he studied harmony with Maestro Gianfranco Sordi, owner of the Santa Cecilia Conservatory in Rome.

His current career has taken him to the best stages in Europe, playing with artists such as Leonar Jonson (former member of Temptation), Gerardina Trova, Andrea Bocelli, Mango, Tricarico, Tony Scott, Simple Minds, Feitless, Trilok Gurt, etc. He also studied jazz piano under Franco D'Andrea and Rita Marcotulli. In 1989, he participated in the Umbria Jazz seminar, studying with pianist Neil Omstead, professor of the famous Berklee College of Music in Boston.

The concert, with pieces by Bach, Beethoven, Franck and Chopin, will take place in the Chamber Hall at 7:30 p.m.

 

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 Enrique Arriaga. Tomorrow [Tuesday 8th] at 7:30 p.m the Auditorium welcomes a concert by the Polish pianist Rafal Blechacz. The Chamber Hall will host a journey through piano literature with four major composers, Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, César Franck and Frédéric Chopin, and with a common denominator: classical forms through different harmonic languages.

The renowned pianist will open this recital with one of the Partitas by Bach that is most expressive and full of contrasts. The austerity, melancholy and lyricism of his dances stand out, in contrast with the rhythmic vigour of the Rondeaux and the Capriccio final

Melodic and rhythmic energy define the character of the two works by Beethoven chosen for this programme. The sonata number 5, composed in 1796, is an early example of the unique symphonic style that the master from Bonn would develop. His organic means of composing pre-empts that of his fifth symphony and the 32 Variations, also in C minor, flow between one another strongly and continuously, offering a real display of piano playing technique. 

The programme continues with another of the iconic cornerstones of the piano repertoire, the Prélude, Fugue et Variation op. 18 by César Franck, before concluding with the last sonata by Frédéric Chopin. This work does not abandon the dramatic structure inherited from the classics, but it contains all the essence of romantic music par excellence. 

In October of 2005, Rafal Blechacz emerged as the undisputed winner of the 15th Frédéric Chopin International Piano Competition in Warsaw, the second Polish pianist in history, only preceded by Krystian Zimmerman thirty years earlier. This victory gave him access to the most famous and prestigious concert halls in the world, playing with the best symphony orchestras and under the direction of acclaimed conductors. 

The tickets can be purchased until fifteen minutes before the show on the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com, at the auditorium's box office from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or by dialling the phone number 902 317 327. 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 COVID-19, such as the correct use of masks. All of the measures, as well as the contingency plan certified by AENOR, can be consulted on the Auditorium’s website.

The organist Daniel Oyarzabal will play the great instrument housed within the walls of Symphony Hall alongside Joan Castelló

 

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, Enrique Arriaga. This Sunday [27] at 12:00 p.m. it will offer the first organ concert of the season: Órgano y percusión, un mundo por descubrir (Organ and Percussion: A World to Discover). This morning experience is starred by organist Daniel Oyarzabal and percussionist Joan Castelló, both of whom are originally from the Basque Country.  They will offer an attractive journey through the most famous music of the last century and a half. 

In recent times, a trend has been taken up to enrich organ concerts in auditoriums with other instruments that have contrasting timbres and which add variety to the repertoire of predominantly Romantic symphonic pieces, assuming the role of an entire orchestra. The musicologist Rosario Álvarez explains that “it is a way of offering a new vision of those well-known scores for an audience who will be amazed and delighted by the transmutation of that musical world – a world which, until now, seemed immutable.” 

The fact of the matter is that, although it may be true that the multiple timbres of the organ can represent those of an orchestra, especially those of the wind instruments, that is not exactly the case with the varied and rich percussion section.  For Álvarez, this combination “provides – in addition to diverse and suggestive new colours and techniques – the rhythmic drive, the crystalline or opaque sound of metal and wood keys being struck, as well as the depth of drum heads, among many other examples.” In this programme, seven-piece by composers from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries that have been transcribed by the organist Oyarzabal will be played.

This concert is offered in collaboration with the San Miguel Arcángel Royal Canarian Academy of Fine Arts (RACBA).Built in the 20th-century by the prestigious organ builder Albert Blancafort and his team, the Auditorium's organ is considered a unique instrument for its design, sound and musical ranges.  The sounds are produced by 3,835 pipes that are housed in the walls of the emblematic Symphony Hall, which are controlled by the organist from on-stage through the console and the four keyboards that he can play.

Daniel Oyarzabal has a long international career that he has cultivated for years with intense concert activity at prestigious festivals in more than 20 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, and America. Joan Castelló is currently part of the group Neopercusión, a professor at the Katarina Gurska Higher Music Centre, and a professor for the National Orchestra and Choir of Spain.

Tickets can be purchased until fifteen minutes before each performance on the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com, at the Auditorium's box office from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Saturdays 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and by dialling the phone number 902 317 327 during the same schedule. 

By purchasing tickets, you accept the measures implemented by the cultural centre to combat COVID-19, such as the correct use of masks and the attendance at 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.

This adapted version for all audiences comes with the musical direction of Rubén Díez, conducting the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra and Raúl Vázquez in charge of staging and scene design. The costume design is by Leo Martínez while the lighting is by Miguel Ponce.

ˋSomos volcán. La leyenda de Guayota’ takes place on Saturday this week at the Symphony Hall. The tickets are sold out

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife, a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council, is managed by its island's Minister of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. On Saturday this week [19th], it offers the family concert titled ˋSomos volcán. La leyenda de Guayota´ (We live on a volcano. Guayota’s legend). Tickets are sold out for this proposal by the Youth Philharmonic Orchestra of Tenerife of Miguel Jaubert. 

The show, directed by José Antonio Cubas Delgado, will feature symphonic music, a theatrical adaptation of the Guanche story entitled La leyenda de Guayota (The Legend of Guayota) and directed by Luis Padilla, and a classical ballet led by Héctor Navarro, artistic director of the Ballets de Tenerife company. 

In addition to all of this, and supporting the percussion section of the orchestra, there will also be the participation of members of the Comparsa Tropicana Infantil (a children’s Carnival dance and music group) of Candelaria, whose dance and Batucada beats are directed by David Gómez and Daniel Darias, respectively. There will also be a show of affection for the Island of La Palma and a nod to Carnival, which cannot be held this year in February.

The legend takes place on an island where, the Guanches (inhabitants of Tenerife) lived happily, danced and celebrated spring, but the day of the solstice was approaching and they gathered at the Tagoror (the council of leaders) to decide what to do when Guayota (the devil of volcanoes) appeared and devastated the fields. They decided to prepare a ruse to deceive Guayota, who would think that it was still winter and not dare to go out because of the cold. Thus, on the night of the solstice, they filled the island with bonfires and everyone gathered to warm up. The devil of volcanoes was fooled and stayed inside the mountain, the town celebrated their victory over Guayota, and they promised that every year, on the night of the solstice, the Beñesmen, the island would be filled with bonfires.

This show is organised by the Canarian Association for the Diffusion of Music (ACADIM), a non-profit association whose purpose is to spread music through the Miguel Jaubert Youth Philharmonic Orchestra of Tenerife (OFJT-MJ). There is no other project like this one in all of Spain, bringing together different artistic disciplines in order to attract children to the wonderful world of music.

By purchasing tickets, you accept the measures implemented by the cultural centre to combat COVID-19, such as the correct use of masks and the attendance at 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.
