El Auditorio de Tenerife, espacio que depende del área de Cultura del Cabildo que dirige el consejero Enrique Arriaga, ofrece este fin de semana tres sesiones -una el sábado y dos el domingo- de concierto de bandas de música que clausuran la presente edición del ciclo Primavera Musical que organiza desde 2005 la Federación Tinerfeña de Bandas de Música con la colaboración del Cabildo de Tenerife. Las formaciones participantes proceden de Candelaria, Arafo, Fasnia, San Juan de la Rambla, Santa Cruz, Guía de Isora y El Rosario.

Enrique Arriaga destaca que “esta ha sido una edición muy especial para nosotros y para las propias bandas, después del parón que tuvimos que hacer el año pasado”. “Las 35 bandas de música han tenido que reducir su formación para poder adaptarla a los escenarios de las salas del Auditorio y algunas las hemos llevado por primera vez a la Sala Sinfónica”. “Quiero agradecer el esfuerzo que han realizado las bandas y destacar la labor que viene haciendo la Federación Tinerfeña de Bandas que preside Alejandro Poleo”, concluye Arriaga.

La Sala Sinfónica acoge mañana [sábado 12], a partir de las 18 horas. Las Candelas, que llega desde Candelaria, iniciará su repertorio -bajo la dirección de Mauro Fariña- con un estreno del pasodoble compuesto por José Luis Peiró dedicado a esta banda con el título de la formación. El repertorio continuará con Scent, de Saúl Gómez Soler y con Javier Llopis como solista, para concluir con Metroplex: three postcards from Manhattan, de Robert Sheldon.

La Agrupación Artístico Musical La Candelaria procede de Arafo y se presenta con la dirección de Carlos Daniel Albertos con un repertorio que arranca con Música y vinos, de Manuel Morales, continúa con Obertura 1812, de Tchaikovsky, y finaliza con el Intermedio de La boda de Luis Alonso, de Gerónimo Giménez.

El domingo por la mañana, a partir de las 11:30 horas, intervendrán las bandas de Fasnia, San Juan de la Rambla y San Andrés (Santa Cruz). La primera de ellas, dirigida por Mateu Azzaro González, incluyen en su programa Don Pedro el maestro, de Vicente Esteban Fariña; Brass Fever, de John Cacavas, y un medley de boleros.

Alcaraván, de San Juan de la Rambla, iniciará su actuación bajo la dirección de Miguel Ángel Arrocha, con Canta Tenerife, de Santiago Reig, y continuará con A discovery fantasy, de Jan de Haan, y The Lion King, con arreglos de John Higgins.

Juan Antonio Domínguez dirigirá a la Asociación Musical Amigos del Arte, de San Andrés (Santa Cruz) en un programa que arranca con el pasodoble Mi tierra guanche, de Cabrera Santamaría con arreglos de Agustín Ramos, y completa con Hallelujah, de Leonard Cohen con arreglos de Michael Brown, y Sinfonía Clásica, de Ted Huggens.

La decimoséptima edición de Primavera Musical concluye con otra sesión el domingo por la tarde, a partir de las 18:00 horas, en la Sala Sinfónica que protagonizarán las bandas La Luz (Guía de Isora) y Princesa Yaiza (El Rosario). El programa de la primera de las formaciones, con la dirección de Antonio Fariña, lo componen los temas Bravo Mestre, de Ferrer Ferrán, Le roi d’ys, de Gabriel Parés, y Bonaparte, de Otto Schwarz.

Por su parte, la propuesta que trae la banda Princesa Yaiza, de El Rosario, incluye el pasodoble L’os i en Bala, de Jef Penders, Star Wars, de John Williams con arreglos de Robert Smith y Donald Hunsberger, y American Graphity, de Nahoiro Iwai, todo ello bajo la dirección de Juan Antonio Rancel.

El presidente, Pedro Martín, considera que “la orquesta es uno de los tesoros más preciados del Cabildo”

Arriaga destaca que la formación “ha mantenido una constante relación con la sociedad que ha ayudado a evadirse de la pandemia”

 

El Cabildo ha presentado hoy la temporada 2021-2022 de la Sinfónica de Tenerife que se inicia el 10 de septiembre y significará el retorno al gran sinfonismo a través de obras fundamentales del repertorio. Más de medio centenar de composiciones de estilos y épocas variados serán interpretadas en los 19 conciertos de este ciclo que se desarrollará hasta el 17 de junio y en el que tendrán cabida directores y solistas de calado internacional. Los detalles de esta nueva temporada fueron dados a conocer por el presidente del Cabildo, Pedro Martín; el consejero de Cultura, Enrique Arriaga, y el director honorario de la orquesta, Víctor Pablo Pérez.

Pedro Martín resaltó que “todo lo que tiene que ver con nuestra Orquesta Sinfónica es un acontecimiento”, formación a la que definió como “uno de los tesoros más preciados de nuestro Cabildo, que ha sabido resistir casi como ninguna otra orquesta los embates del covid”. En ese sentido, Martín apuntó a la importancia de presentar la nueva temporada no solo por “el empeño de mantener ese pálpito cultural” acercando la música en directo a toda la ciudadanía, sino porque “hay que salir de la pandemia y tener buenas noticias como es que la Sinfónica de Tenerife presente una nueva programación”.

Enrique Arriaga se ha sumado a esta consideración añadiendo que la orquesta ha dado en el último año “una gran satisfacción” que ha permitido a muchas personas “evadirse de la pandemia”. Desde que reanudó su actividad en junio del pasado año, la Sinfónica de Tenerife “ha mantenido siempre constante su relación con la sociedad, no solo en todos los conciertos que se han llevado a cabo en el Auditorio de Tenerife sino también con otras muchas actividades socioeducativas”, destacó el consejero de Cultura quien añadió que la nueva temporada será de nuevo “de altísima calidad y complejidad”.

El director honorario de la formación musical del Cabildo, Víctor Pablo Pérez, quien desgranó las principales líneas artísticas y programáticas de la nueva temporada, indicó que “el Patronato Insular de Música propone un mensaje de optimismo, de ilusión y de esperanza en esta nueva temporada que va a comenzar en el mes de septiembre”.

Las sinfonías Octava y Novena o Del Nuevo Mundo de Dvorak, la Cuarta y Quinta de Chaikovski, la Italiana de Mendelssohn, la Quinta y Décima de Shostakovich, el último gran sinfonista mundial, unido a otras grandes composiciones como el Concierto para orquesta de Bartók, Tristán e Isolda de Wagner o El mar de Debussy, formarán parte esta temporada de los grandes momentos que permitirán a la orquesta reafirmar su sonoridad y brillar de nuevo con la música en directo.

Sobre este planteamiento programático, la nueva temporada de la Sinfónica de Tenerife contará con la presencia de una quincena de batutas de prestigio y emergentes. Además de Víctor Pablo Pérez, que se pondrá al frente de tres de los 19 programas, tanto en el concierto inaugural como en el de clausura destacan las intervenciones de Christian Zacharias y Javier Perianes, respectivamente, en calidad de director y pianista. Entre los invitados, habrá cuatro directoras: Catherine Larsen-Maguire –quien estará a cargo de dos conciertos– Chloé van Soeterstède, Lina González-Granados y Tabita Berglund, y estarán también nombres conocidos por el público tinerfeño como James Feddeck, Eiji Oue, Edmon Colomer, Lucas Macías, Eivind Gullberg Jensen, Karl-Heinz Steffens, además de Christian Vásquez y Alexander Shelley.

Entre los músicos invitados sobresalen Pablo Sáinz-Villegas, referente mundial de la guitarra y que interpretará el afamado Concierto de Aranjuez de Joaquín Rodrigo; Pacho Flores, el más mediático de los trompetistas internacionales, o Stefan Dohr, uno de los grandes trompas de la Filarmónica de Berlín en estos momentos. La relación de solistas se completa con las violinistas Ellinor D’Melon, Rosanne Philippens y Noa Wildschut, los violonchelistas Anastasia Kobekina y Alban Gerhardt, los pianistas Albert Guinovart y Evgeny Konnov –Ganador Del Concurso María Canals 2018–, además del viola Maxim Rysanov, el flautista Adam Walker, la mezzosoprano Catriona Morison y el Cuarteto Quiroga, formación conocida mundialmente.

Un año más, completan la programación dos propuestas muy queridas por el público de la Sinfónica de Tenerife. El concierto coral, que este año contará con la participación de dos de los cantantes tinerfeños más internacionales, la soprano Raquel Lojendio y el tenor Airam Hernández, a quienes se suma el barítono Gabriel Bermúdez y la Coral Reyes Bartlet, que dirige José Hijar Polo. Este programa, diseñado y conducido por Víctor Pablo Pérez, se celebrará a principios de abril en Auditorio de Tenerife y -si las circunstancias lo permiten- en la Catedral de La Laguna. From Bach to Radiohead es el título del concierto pop esta temporada, bajo la dirección de Michael Thomas, con el tenor José Manuel Zapata, Rubén Rubio a la viola de gamba y guitarra, además del guitarrista Juan Francisco Padilla.

Además de los estos 19 programas, la temporada de la Sinfónica de Tenerife se completa con su presencia en Ópera de Tenerife, Festival de Música de Canarias o Fimucité. Asimismo, ofrecerá una intensa actividad del área social y educativa con conciertos didácticos para público infantil y familiar, así como su ya habitual presencia en los hospitales o centros sociosanitarios para aproximar la música sinfónica a la población de toda la Isla.

La imagen de este nuevo ciclo de conciertos mantiene como lema Siempre Contigo, definido por el compromiso de una cercanía permanente con la ciudadanía. En este sentido, la Sinfónica de Tenerife mantendrá todas las medidas de prevención sanitarias en el primer tramo de la nueva temporada, con los aforos y plantillas adaptados a los nuevos requerimientos, uso obligatorio de mascarilla y distancia de seguridad, aunque añadirá pausas a los conciertos con la vista puesta en una vuelta a las condiciones habituales a partir de enero de 2022.

Para este periodo, se podrán adquirir paquetes con los siete primeros conciertos, el Pack Otoño, con un 10% de descuento. Se pondrán a la venta a partir del 13 de julio por los tres canales habituales de Auditorio de Tenerife (online, taquilla y por teléfono), y la venta preferente para abonados de la temporada 2019-2020 se abrirá el 29 de junio hasta el 10 de julio.

Dinis Sousa conducts this concert, with Emmanuel Tjeknavorian as A soloist violin and Pablo Ferrández playing the cello.

The Symphony Orchestra of Tenerife (OST) is a project of the Island Council’s Department of Culture which is directed by Enrique Arriaga. The orchestra wants to pay a new tribute to the composer Ludwig van Beethoven and one of his most renowned pieces: his Symphony No. 6, also known as the Pastoral Symphony. The programme is complemented with the Double Concerto in A minor, Op. 102, by Johannes Brahms for violin, cello and orchestra, that will be featured by Emmanuel Tjeknavorian and Pablo Ferrández, artist-in-residence of the OST during the season. The concert takes place on Friday, the 11th of June at 7:30 pm in the Auditorio de Tenerife with Dinis Sousa as conductor, who will make his debut with the OST.

Ludwig van Beethoven's (1770-1827) love of nature was reflected in his Symphony No. 6 in F major "Pastoral", op. 68. However, the composer emphasised that this composition was "rather an expression of feelings than a tone painting". But what determined the work structure was this evocation of the emotional effects that the landscape produced on him. The symphony has five movements, each one representing a country scene with its own title. This breaks with the classical symphony model, and in this case, the last three movements are to be played without pause. The work was premièred in one of the most remarkable concerts of history that took place on the 22nd of December 1808 at the Theater an der Wien in Vienna. Beethoven's Fifth Symphony was also featured.

While Beethoven became a mythical figure in the musical tradition, many other composers felt paralysed by his influence, unable to tackle genres such as the symphony or the sonata. One of the composers who was most affected by Beethoven's shadow was Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), a musician who years later was finally included in the Germanic classical tradition. Described as beautiful and original, his Concerto for violin and cello in A minor was his last work for orchestra. He finished his composition at the age of 54, once he already left behind his irrational fear of failure, imprinting "his great melodic lines and harmonic progressions".

For the first time, Dinis Sousa, a founder member and artistic director of Orquestra XXI, will be at the helm of the Symphony Orchestra of Tenerife.  He has closely worked with Sir John Eliot Gardiner and his ensembles. This relationship has culminated in his appointment as the first-ever assistant conductor of the Monteverdi Choir and Monteverdi Orchestra. His next engagements will see him working with the Royal Northern Sinfonia, Orchestre Symphonique de Mulhouse, Malta Philharmonic, Orquestra Sinfónica Portuguesa and Orquestra de Cámara de Madeira, as well as conducting rehearsals with the London Symphony Orchestra.

Cellist Pablo Ferrández, artist-in-residence of the OST during the 2020/2021 season, will be making his third appearance with the Tenerife's ensemble this year.  The Madrid-born musician was recognised at the Fifteenth International Tchaikovsky Competition. He was awarded the coveted ICMA “Young Artist of the Year”, and in 2018 he won the Princess of Girona Award for his "exceptional talent and international projection".

Considered as an "exceptional talent" (Der Tagesspiegel), the violinist and conductor Emmanuel Tjeknavorian makes his debut with the OST and has become one of the most sought-after musicians of his generation. In addition to Tenerife, he will perform as a soloist with the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra in the Concertgebouw, the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, the Bruckner Orchester Linz, the Orquesta Sinfónica de Radio Televisión Española, the Gewandhausorchester under the baton of Franz Welser-Möst and others.

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 holidays. The audience is requested to arrive at the venue well in advance to enter the Auditorium in staggered "waves" to enjoy this cultural experience. 

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.

Enrique Arriaga stressed that "the concerts on the 24th and the 25th of June are a well-deserved tribute to a musical genius"

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife, a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council, is managed by its Director of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. On Monday the 7th of June, it hosted the presentation of Tenerife's International Film Music Festival (Fimucité) that will take place from the 17th to the 26th of September under the motto 'Once Upon a Time in Fimucité: 15 years of the best film music.' In addition to the support of the Island Council, the festival is funded by the Canary Islands' Government, the city councils of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and San Cristóbal de La Laguna, among others. 

The repertoire will be focused on the Italian composer Ennio Morricone and the Spanish composer Antón García Abril, both great masters of film music. They passed away in mid-2020 and last March, respectively. The proposal will be completed with a thematic concert about video game music, a new show by the Pop Culture Band and two recitals by the Coro de Voces Blancas of the Professional Music Conservatory of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and the Coro Polifónico of the University of la Laguna.

The Director of Culture of Tenerife Island Council, Enrique Arriaga, announced the details of this fifteenth edition together with Rubén Pérez, Director General of Culture of the Canary Islands Government; José Manuel Bermúdez, mayor of Santa Cruz de Tenerife; Luis Yeray Gutiérrez, mayor of La Laguna and Diego Navarro, the festival director.

Enrique Arriaga explained that "Fimucité celebrates its 15th anniversary with international recognition and with its director Diego Navarro and his team improving every year". "They always sell out all what they organise". The vice-president also wanted to emphasise that "the concerts on 24 and 25 September in the Auditorio de Tenerife with the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra are a well-deserved tribute to a musical genius: Ennio Morricone". "His scores generate tension, emotion and set the pace of the films... We are looking forward to this concert," added Arriaga. 

Rubén Pérez acknowledged that he is in love with Ennio Morricone's music. He also wanted to "highlight how the audio-visual sector is strategic in the whole value chain of the Canary Islands Government," explained the Director-General of Culture. He insisted on how important it is "to have a headquarters for the world of film music in Tenerife ". He added "some composers already live in the archipelago and produce their film music from here." 

For his part, the Mayor of La Laguna recalled that "in these 15 years the Festival has always highlighted the importance of culture, also in our municipality". "That's why this year we are increasing the funds for the festival," Gutiérrez said. "La Laguna is a synonym for culture as it is a World Heritage Site. The Festival Fimucité contributes to this: the opportunity given to La Laguna with the inauguration of the festival in the Teatro Leal, is a source of great pride", he said.

The Mayor of Santa Cruz acknowledged that "getting this far is already a real win for the organisers". He recalled that "during these years, we have experienced historic moments and at Fimucité concerts, people have a good time". Bermúdez stressed that "this festival has shown how to jointly foster economy and culture. It also places us on the map, and that is very important. Thanks to Fimucité, many musicians and fans know where Tenerife is located," he added.

For his part, Diego Navarro, director of Fimucité, explained this year's extensive programme. In addition to the concerts, the festival also offers training and prizes. “Last year Fimucité was one of the few of its kind that could be held internationally, I seem to remember that there were only two in total". "That's why last year we were like ‘the Resistance’. Once more, this year we'll turn Tenerife into a principal place of film music," said Navarro. As for the two performances of the tribute concert to Morricone, Navarro stressed that "these official concerts are endorsed by Morricone’s family. They also reflect his career as a concert music composer, something he would have loved". 

Navarro is also a composer and conductor. He will be at the helm of the OST during the two performances of the concert "Once upon a time, Ennio Morricone: A tribute to his film music". The concerts take place on the 24th and the 25th of September at the Auditorio de Tenerife. After five previous nominations, Ennio Morricone won the Oscar for the original score of Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight (2016). The composer has scored more than five hundred soundtracks. The Fimucité festival, in co-production with the European Film Philharmonic Institute, is preparing an extraordinary musical production to remember the key elements of his filmography. During both events, the audience will make a thrilling journey through the composer’s legacy and his unforgettable film compositions, such as Until his time came, Cinema Paradiso, Elliot Ness' The Untouchables, The Mission or Novecento.

On the other hand, the former Convent of Santo Domingo in La Laguna will host on 23 September a tribute concert to Antón García Abril, one of the great creators of 20th-century Spanish music, and who was linked to Fimucité since its beginnings. The honorary prize awarded by the festival in recognition of fundamental figures in international film music bears his name. García Abril himself received the award in 2014 as a composer of titles such as 'Sor Citroen', 'El crimen de Cuenca', 'Fortunata y Jacinta', 'Ramón y Cajal', 'Anillos de Oro' and Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente's 'El Hombre y la Tierra'. It will be a unique concert, performed by the Polyphonic Choir of the University of La Laguna. Thanks to the collaboration of the composer, arranger and orchestrator Jorge Magaz, for the first time an extraordinary selection of his scores will be heard off-screen during this world’s première. 

On Sunday, 19 September, the same venue will host a concert by the Coro de Voces Blancas of the Professional Music Conservatory of Tenerife, conducted by Juan Ramón Vinagre. We will enjoy a selection of soundtracks, a wide range of styles and film styles; from exclusive choral arrangements made for the concert with titles such as Life is Beautiful, Casablanca, Frozen, The Sound of Music, to La La Land or Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

On 17 September, the Teatro Leal in La Laguna will host the opening concert of this Fimucité 15. This concert is dedicated to video-games music and will be conducted by the award-winning Irish composer Eímear Noone. During the 2017 edition of the Festival, Noone surprised the audience as a guest conductor leading the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra. She was the first woman to conduct the orchestra during the Oscars gala, and famous for her video-games music such as World of Warcraft. On this occasion she will conduct a chamber orchestra, with a pop-rock combo, performing the programme Electric Arcade - A VGM History. There are emblematic compositions for essential titles such as Castlevania, The Witcher, Zelda, Halo, Assassin's Creed, Fortnite or the classic Tetris. They will all be played at this unmissable event, with arrangements by Craig Stuart Garfinkle, Emmy-nominated, prolific music producer and composer. His work ranges from feature films and documentaries to multimedia content, video games, commercials and live shows.

The Pop Culture Band returns this year with a new and original proposal: a tribute to one of the most important and long-lived genres in cinema: road movies and their plots along a road trip. On 18 September, the Teatro Guimerá in Santa Cruz de Tenerife will offer the Route 66 programme. The Festival's resident band, led by Gonzalo de Araoz, will perform basic movie soundtracks like Easy Rider, Thelma & Louise, 'Corazón salvaje', Pointblank Love and The Motorcycle Diaries. 

Parallel activities

Fimucité 15 will include parallel activities such as screenings of feature films and short films, within the official competition section Fimucinema, as well as within the new cycle: Filmoteca Canaria. On this occasion, it is dedicated to great composers of spaghetti western music. In addition, the Fimucité Film Scoring Academy (Fimucité Academy for audio-visual composers) will re-open its doors with a specialised training offer.  Another crucial moment of the festival will be the Awards Ceremony of the 'IV Premios de la Música para el Audiovisual Español', which are organised by the "Asociación de Compositores de Música para Audiovisual" (Musimagen) in collaboration with Fimucité. 

On Sunday, 26 September, the closing awards ceremony takes place at the Espacio Cultural La Granja with the reading of the Fimucinema list of winners, the presentation of awards and the screening of the Alex North Award's winning film.

Fimucité has the support of the following institutions: Cabildo de Tenerife, Gobierno de Canarias, Ayuntamiento de Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Ayuntamiento de San Cristóbal de La Laguna, Auditorio de Tenerife, Orquesta Sinfónica de Tenerife, Fundación "la Caixa", Fundación Disa and Domingo Alonso Group.

The flamenco dancer Fernando Romero, the piano duo Lechado-Kucháeva and the percussion ensemble ‘Música Viva’ feature this proposal.

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the councillor of Culture Enrique Arriaga. On Wednesday, the 13th of June at 7:30 pm, it will offer the concert “Dialogues. Debussy and Stravinsky from the Flamenco dance perspective”. The Chamber Hall hosts this proposal of the flamenco dancer Fernando Romero, the piano duo Lechado-Kuchaeva and the ensemble ‘Música Viva’ with Verónica Cagigao and Carolina Alcaraz. Tickets are on sale.

The show proposes a great sense of timbre linking two pianos and two percussion instruments. Debussy, Borodin and Stravinsky provide the music that takes shape through the choreographer and dancer Fernando Romero. The eternal need to find new challenges when applying classical music to contemporary flamenco dance inspires this project. 

In this way, the strength of dance and music converges in the same space to build new paths for contemporary artistic creation. A great awakening of dance occurred at the beginning of the 20th century; it partly happened due to these works. The challenge of this project is to dance the musical pieces in flamenco style while being aligned with their most essential part. 

Debussy's 'Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune' is one of the most emblematic works of the 20th century for music and dance. It defines musical impressionism. His whole construction is based on dissolving rhythm and harmony, thus creating moods, expressiveness and emotional understanding. The arrangements are adapted to dance to offer the spectator a new vision of this work.

'Polovtsian Dances', from Act II of Borodin's unfinished opera Prince Igor, will give the dancer a break. This musical version highlights a great drama and a sense of timbre; it will be performed by an ensemble comprised of two pianos and two percussion instruments.

'Le Sacre du printemps', by Stravinsky, was premièred in 1912 in Paris. In general terms, it is considered the great revolution in dance. The current stage concept is preceded by this work. 'The Rite of Spring' challenges the audience from beginning to end with its chaotic percussive momentum. The dramaturgy is based on a pagan rite about virginity and the arrival of spring through sacrificial dance. The script is integrated into the musical work. It literally devours any chance of another reading. This work is aimed at finding its mystery through flamenco dance style. 

FMUC wraps up this edition with a third and final concert that takes place on 17 June at 7:30 pm: the premiere of ‘Collage'. This piece was composed for the festival by the Tenerife-born musician Francis Hernández, who conducts the show and plays accompanied by a piano, percussion and brass ensemble of the Music Conservatory of the Canary Islands.

Tickets can be purchased until one hour before each show 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 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.

FAM offers during the last-day wide participation from the Canary Islands. Daniel Abreu, who aspires to three Max Awards, stands out.

 

The show ‘Kenophobia’, by the company Osa + Mujica, wraps up the Arts and Movement Festival organised by the Auditorio de Tenerife, a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by its Director of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. During the last day, wide participation from the Canary Island stands out with Natalia Medina, Javier Cuevas, Paula Quintana, Nómada and Daniel Abreu. Once more, Abreu was nominated for the Max Awards under three categories.

OSA + MUJIKA is comprised of three pieces that last fifty minutes; it is a colourful work, full of images, with a physical language, with dynamic and energetic movements. For those who suffer from kenophobia, empty spaces are terrifying. The play begins with a big party. By its end, the players start feeling lonely and afraid. In line with the company's work concept, special importance is given to the costumes, to the presentation in video and photography.

The tickets to see Natalia Medina's company and her family show Petitdanza are sold out. It takes place at Espacio La Granja from 10:30 am onward. This proposal invites you to take a journey through fantasy, where movement and expression come together to let your imagination fly.   This work is dynamic, joyful and vital. The bodies move to the rhythm of beautiful melodies that touch our hearts and take us to a state of peace and well-being.

Daniel Abreu won the National Dance Award in 2014. He participates in FAM 21 with his proposal 'El hijo' (The son). The Tenerife-born choreographer considers that this work has layers that move around a concept that captures his curiosity: “descendants”. 'El hijo' (The son) talks about our link with parents. The show can be seen in Teatro Guimerá at 12:00 noon, during which smoke and strobe effects are used. Abreu has been nominated to the Max Awards under three categories for this show: Best dance performance, best choreography and a best male dancer. 

The joint proposal by Javier Cuevas and Paula Quintana titled 'Esto que tú ves' takes place outside the Auditorio de Tenerife from 6:30 pm onwards. The tickets are sold out. 'Esto que tú ves' is a dance piece for street and non-conventional spaces. It is about the poetic and cinematographic gaze, about the work and its frame, about the loving encounter between attention and life. It is like a journey to celebrate the human capacity to compose reality and to be moved by it.

Nómada company features again during this new FAM edition. This time it will be with 'El pastor' (The Minister). At 7:00 pm in the auditorium’s Chamber Hal, the choreographer and dancer Roberto Torres represents a religious, political or cattle mass guide. When people feel frightened, he manipulates them as a way to motivate the group.

During this last day, an exclusive session titled "Work in Progress" is aimed at programmers. Several artists will show their latest works in progress: ‘Sutil’ by Laura Marrero, ‘Schwanengesang (Der Held)’, by Javier Arozena, ‘Tun/La’ by Carmen Macías and ‘La orilla de mi piel’ by Acerina Toledo.

Tickets are sold through the website www.famtenerife.com, where you can also find all the information about the shows. Each venue has implemented its own prevention measures against the pandemic, which can be consulted during the purchasing process. 

FAM is sponsored by the INAEM (Spanish Ministry of Culture and Sports) and the programmes ‘Danza a Escena’, are sponsored by the organisations 'Red Española de Teatros' and 'Circuito Acieloabierto'. Likewise, the Canary Islands Governments collaborates by offering the venue Espacio La Granja; the Council of Santa Cruz de Tenerife by offering the theatre Teatro Guimerá and the University of La Laguna by offering the venue Paraninfo. The FAM festival has obtained the EFFE Seal (Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe) granted by the European Union. The EFFE Seal is a quality distinction awarded to festivals with an artistic mission, a commitment to local communities, and a strategic vision at the European level.

Pau Aran, Compañía Sharon Fridman, Isabel Vázquez, Pol Jiménez y Roser López Espinosa feature on the third day of this festival.

 

The company 'La Intrusa', distinguished with the National Dance Award 2015, presents the show “It's a wrap (Kubrick is dead) during the FAM Festival. The performance starts when six characters from Kubrick's filmography receive the news of his death. Damián Muñoz expects to win the Max Award for his performance in this play. This artistic proposal can be seen on the 5th of June at the Teatro Guimerá from 12:00 noon on. The show takes place as part of the FAM Festival organized by the Auditorio de Tenerife, a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by its Director of Culture, Enrique Arriaga.

On Saturday at 10:30, the programme starts with Lettre d'amour in Espacio La Granja. The piece is inspired by desire or the appetite for what is absent; This piece, based on texts by the Peruvian poet César Moro and the dramaturgy by Alberto Conejero, gather on stage the dancer Pau Aran - nominee for the Max Prize - and the actress Consuelo Trujillo.

This double programme outdoors of the Auditorio de Tenerife begins at 5:00 pm with the company Sharon Fridman and the show '147 abrazos' (147 hugs) to continue 30 minutes later with Laika, by Isabel Vázquez. The first piece is an extract from the play 'Dosis de paraíso' (Dosis of paradise). The work arises from the need to deal with love and from the relationship between two people. With this proposal, Isabel Vázquez demands the right to be odd and peculiar as human values; this enables each individual to reassert that each one of us is a special and unique being.

At 6:30 pm, Pol Jiménez will play ‘La Oscilante’ (The Oscillating) at the auditorium's Chamber Hall. This piece revolves around the concept of 'otherness', of moving in unison through curvy and straight paths, through linear and discontinuous ways, thus revealing the constant vibration of the binary.  On that third day, the last show will be performed at the Symphony Hall, where the company Roser López Espinosa offers at 8:00 pm the piece Trama (Plot). The show is like a concert with different voices, tunings and discordant notes. Dancers interweave their bodies and relationships to create a physical score of interdependencies and mutual trust.

Tickets are sold at a price of 2 to 8 euros through the website www.famtenerife.com, where you can also find all the information about the shows. Each venue has implemented its own prevention measures against the pandemic, which can be consulted during the purchasing process.

The second day also includes performances by Leonor Leal, Álvaro Esteban & Lorena Nogal, Daniel Doña, Paula Quintana and Daniel Morales

 

On Friday the 4th of June, the company La Quebrá will offer the performance 'GET NO' at the Teatro Guimerá. This show is included in the second day's agenda of the FAM 2021 (Arts of Movement Festival). The festival is organised by Auditorio de Tenerife, an institution linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the island's Minister of Culture Enrique Arriaga. This second date of the festival also includes performances by Daniel Morales, Paula Quintana, Daniel Doña, Álvaro Esteban & Lorena Nogal and Leonor Leal.

The work GET NO deals with satisfaction and aircraft. It is a passing place in which to contemplate, a non-place. A million passable nooks and fleeting airport-like encounters. People who stop, brief stories that are observed during a blink of an eye or that can last forever. Time passes by, but the emptiness does not stop. GET NO reflects the wish to continue, to understand, to change, a constant dissatisfaction.

For the second day, the FAM 21 has programmed six shows that will start at 10:00 am at the Paraninfo de la Universidad de La Laguna, where Daniel Morales will perform 'El vuelo'.  He proposes to change routines, warning us that borders are invisible lines that we can cross with our minds. In this show, these lines draw the sky that connects with the imagination.

LA CARNE by Paula Quintana, was premiered at the last edition of the festival. It is the second part of a trilogy about the rebirth and elevation of bodies. She premiered 'Las alegrías' in 2019 as part of FAM. This proposal can be seen at 12:30 in Espacio La Granja. It revolves around Camille's autobiographical account: a future, anonymous and resilient woman who stands up to the world alongside her peers to usher in a new era of human and planetary transformation. 

At 5:00 pm, the Centro de Arte La Recova will welcome the Dance Company Daniel Doña and the show 'Campo cerrado'a cartography-like performance that revolves around concepts like identity and diversity. From the dramaturgy point of view, it tackles key cultural issues of a difficult historical time: the Spanish post-war period. This choreographic work aims to show an alternative way of interpreting our history; it explores in depth how the different post-war avant-garde movements developed during this historical period. Creators of the time, with their stroke of genius and talent, probably made it possible to happen; they applied different artistic perspectives that consolidated and went beyond a period that has been traditionally considered as a cultural backwater.

Álvaro Esteban and Lorena Nogal will perform the show Cualquier mañana-Tríptico, including a solo for each dancer: 'El elogio de la fisura' (Lorena Nogal) and 'Antípodas' (Álvaro Esteban), to conclude with 'Cualquier mañana', a coreography by Esteban and Laura Aris. This proposal will we shown at 5:30 pm in the Castillo Hall (Auditorio de Tenerife).

The second day will wrap up the Festival with the Flamenco dancer Leonor Leal and her show Nocturo, with Alfredo Lagos playing the guitar and Antonio Moreno playing percussion. The show takes place at the Chamber Hall, Auditorio de Tenerife. This show, which starts at 7 p.m., is a fantasy where two musicians a dancer who weave together on stage a route through insomnia, memory and longing.

Tickets are sold at a price of 2 to 8 euros through the website www.famtenerife.com, where you can also find all the information about the shows. Each venue has implemented its own prevention measures against the pandemic, which can be consulted during the purchasing process.

The FAM 21 festival kicks off on Thursday the 3rd of June with six shows distributed among five venues 

 

Sharon Fridman's company presents her show 'Dosis de paraíso'. It is a co-production with Auditorio de Tenerife, an institution linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the island's Minister of Culture Enrique Arriaga. The performance, which is part of the first day of the Festival de las Artes del Movimiento (FAM), takes place at the Teatro Guimerá, starting at 16:00.

This new creation of the director and choreographer Sharon Fridman is an exploration of love and relationships. During the performance, a dialogue with new technologies in search of emotional spaces is developed. The company has designed this 50 minutes’ show with smoke and strobe effects.

The FAM 21 edition kicks off with six shows. The first performance, 'Ina', takes place at 10:00 am in the Paraninfo de la Universidad de La Laguna, with Paloma Hurtado and Daniel Morales. 'Ina' focuses our gaze on the concept of light, that which we do not see but which shines brightly within us.

El Espacio La Granja, cultural space of the Canary Island's Government, welcomes Carlota Mantecón and her show 'DANCE, NO GOAL'; a co-production between Auditorio de Tenerife and the Dance Theatre Ljubljana, Slovenia. Carlota Mantecón, dancer and choreographer, presents this show with Canary and Slovenian dancers who are over 60 years old.

Ruffle, choreography by Carlos Pons Guerra, is inspired by cockfighting and Greco-Latin wrestling. This DeNada Dance Theatre performance can be enjoyed at the scenic venue Centro de Arte La Recova from 5:00 pm on. This bittersweet duo explores emotional aggression in homosexual relationships and the moments when our bedrooms become battle arenas. 'Ruffle' was choreographed in 2015 for Rambert, the UK's national dance company, and has toured internationally.

A man is sitting on a chair. He is thinking of past conversations and encounters. He is filtering and trying to differentiate the relevant from the insubstantial, remembering and reliving. The surprising appearance of his alter ego allows him to engage in a dialogue that is as intense as it is absurd. Truths, dreams and lies expressed with dance and a rebellious puppet. The proposal offered by Thomas Noone Dance in his show After the party can be seen in the Castillo Hall, Auditorio de Tenerife, from 5.30 p.m. onwards.

The first day of FAM 21 concludes at 19:00 with Sintempo, the second work by Sara Cano, which will be staged in the Chamber Hall of the Auditorio de Tenerife. It is a dance solo in which the choreographer seeks to create her own stage space She develops an anachronistic dance, made up of pasts, presents and futures, a dance without time... simply personal. Her choreographies combine Spanish and contemporary dance. It is a mixture of choreographic languages in a continuous process of searching for her own style.

Tickets are sold at a price of 2 to 8 euros through the website www.famtenerife.com, where you can also find all the information about the shows. Each venue has implemented its own prevention measures against the pandemic, which can be consulted during the purchasing process.

Conducted by Jaume Santoja and with Daumats Liepins playing the piano, the programme includes the premier 'Alen' by Eduardo Soutullo  

 

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 season concert will offer a look at Russian music through two composers who were contemporary of each other but had different aesthetics: Rachmaninov and Stravinsky. 

The programme is rounded up with the premier 'Alen', work which was distinguished with the '10th Prize to Musical Composition' awarded by AEOS-Fundación BBVA. On Friday, the 4th of June at 7:30 pm, Jaume Santoja will conduct this concert sponsored by the foundation ‘Fundación Jesus Serra’, with the pianist Daumants Liepins, winner of the María Canals 2019 Competition. 

With his music, the Galician composer Eduardo Soutullo (Vigo, 1968) will guide the audience to the surroundings of Monte Seixo (Pontevedra), where the Porta do Alen is located. According to beliefs, through this megalithic monument, one could access another dimension.

The Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 3 in D minor by Sergei Rachmaninov (1873-1943) is one of the most difficult to tackle as a soloist. Although it is impossible to separate his figure, his works and his outstanding performing talent, his four keyboard concerts are linked to recalled emotions, the passionate longing for what has been lived and longed for; all of it is aligned with the late romantic tradition of the 20th century.

The composition “The Firebird” in its suit version from 1919 by Igor Stravinski (1882-1971) was premièred just seven months after Rachmaninov premièred his concert. Although this composer was routed in post-romanticism, Stravinsky emerged as an icon of modern art. He gave his best in orchestral music with choreographic works such as the one included in our programme. This score is Diaghilev's first commission for the Russian Ballets in Paris. It is a great symphonic poem by the composer to announce a new harmonic language from which he produced three orchestral suites. The most common of the three will be performed in this concert.

The Valencia-born director Jaume Santonja is currently working for a second season as an assistant conductor of the City of Birmingham Symphony. He has combined his activity as a percussion soloist with the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra with that of conducting the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the Milan Verdi Symphony Orchestra, the Sicilian Symphony Orchestra and the Antwerp Youth Orchestra. In Spain he has conducted the ORTVE, ADDA-Simfònica, Extremadura, Córdoba, Sinfónica de Asturias and the JONDE. 

His first steps in music were as a percussionist, and as such he has performed under the direction of Mariss Jansons, Daniele Gatti, Yannick Nezet-Seguin, Valery Gergiev, Pierre Boulez, Andris Nelsons, Zubin Mehta, James Levine, Charles Dutoit and Essa-Pekka Salonen. In the case of Jaume Santoja, conducting and composing are activities that cannot be split. Apart from being an arranger, he has a small number of his own creations, especially for chamber music, another of his passions.

The young Latvian Daumants Liepins was the winner of the ‘Vendome Prize at the Verbier Festival 2019’. He is also one of the most promising pianists of his generation. In 2017 he won the Grand National Music Prize of Latvia in the ‘Young Artist of the Year’ category. It is the most prestigious award for a classical musician in his country. He also won the first prize and the special prize of the public at the ‘International Music Competition Maria Canals (Barcelona) 2019’ and the First Prize of the ‘Nordic Piano Competition’. 

In addition to regular solo recitals on various stages around the world, Daumants has performed with several symphony orchestras, including the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra, the Romanian National Symphony Orchestra, the Georgian National Symphony Orchestra and the Kaunas Symphony Orchestra.

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 holidays. The audience is requested to arrive at the venue well in advance to enter the Auditorium in staggered "waves" to enjoy this cultural experience.
