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".

The ensemble will perform works by Bach, Vivaldi and Händel.

 

 

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, Mr Enrique Arriaga. This Thursday, the 20th of May at 7:30 pm, it offers the concert ‘Circa 1721’. The ensemble will play works by Bach, Händel and Vivaldi. Tickets for this concert are sold out. The Baroque Orchestra of Tenerife, under the direction of Alfonso Sebastián, wants to pay a new tribute to Bach and his contemporaries, Händel and Vivaldi, with a chamber music selection of works that have accompanied us since 1721. The concert coincides with the 300th anniversary of Johann Sebastian Bach's final autographed copies of the Brandenburg Concertos.

The programme comprises four pieces. The concert will begin with the Concerto No. 7, in D minor by Vivaldi, to continue with the Trio Sonata in F Major Op. 2, No. 4. HWV 389 by Händel to finish with two works by Bach: Prelude and fugue in c major, and the Brandenburg Concerto in D major.

The orchestra members are Alfonso Sebastián (harpsichord, organ and conductor), Adrián Linares, Baroque Violin and first violin), Pablo Sosa (transverse flute), Laura Díaz (Baroque violin), Givanni Déniz (Baroque violin), Iván Sáez, Baroque viola), Candela Gómez (Baroque cello) and Tomás López-Perea (double bass).

Tomorrow Wednesday, the 19th of May at 11:00 am, the Baroque Orchestra of Tenerife will also introduce this proposal to seventy primary schoolchildren of Punta Brava, Puerto de la Cruz who will attend said concert. 

Alfonso Sebastián (Zaragoza, 1974) will conduct again The Baroque Orchestra of Tenerife during this concert. The Aragon-born musician is the guest conductor of the 'Orquesta Vigo430' and a member of the group 'Los Músicos de Su Alteza'. He not only collaborates with the Tenerife ensemble, but also with the ensemble La Tempestad, Al Ayre Español, the baroque orchestras of Seville and the University of Salamanca and the Symphony Orchestra of Castilla y León. He has been a teacher for harpsichord and ground bass at the professional Music Conservatory of Salamanca since 1999.

The Baroque Orchestra of Tenerife was founded by the association 'Asociación para la Normalización de la Música Antigua en Canarias'. It has organised this concert in collaboration with the ‘San Miguel Arcángel Royal Canarian Academy of Fine Arts’. The aim of this association is to promote young performers who play period styles and instruments. To do so, it provides the appropriate coordination platform to promote the historical musical heritage and to get new audiences closer to all musical forms of the 17th and 18th centuries.

During this Sunday's performance, the contemporary dance piece will merge choreography, flesh and grammar

 

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the councillor Enrique Arriaga. On Sunday, the 23rd of May, it presents the dance show Teorema, by the choreographer and dancer Javier Martín. This contemporary dance piece merges choreography, flesh and grammar and will take place next Sunday [23 May] at 7:30 pm at the Auditorium's Symphony Hall. 

In Teorema, the body's resonances comprise a soundscape for dance. They unfold in a score-like space where objects such as smoke, coal, rope, ice, or glass are mysteriously arranged to bloom. The dancing body livens up the space for dance. The body symphony is the space symphony and vice versa. 

Teorema is a proposal on the relationship between the inner and the outer world, between matter and memory. It encourages us to question and break with the inertias through which we perceive ourselves and relate to our environment. Nothing is as it seems.

The creative process of Teorema went from October 2019 until its premiere in November 2020 at the cultural centre Paco Rabal (Madrid). The premiere coincided with the 15th anniversary of Javier Martín's professional career. The Galician creator acknowledges that during all this time, he has researched the arts of movement from an epistemological and critical perspective.

Since he started to dance professionally in 2005, Javier Martín has created sixteen full-length stage pieces and more than twenty short performances or specific pieces for several cultural spaces. Through the work he is presenting at the Auditorio de Tenerife, the Galician creator considers it "a project of maturity or progress in my career but true to itself". 

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".

El concierto de este viernes [día 21] contará como solista con la violinista Viviane Hagner y será dirigido por Karl-Heinz Steffens   

 

 

La Sinfónica de Tenerife, proyecto que depende del área de Cultura del Cabildo que gestiona el consejero Enrique Arriaga, traza en su nuevo concierto de temporada tres formas de tematizar la burguesía a través de la música. El programa, integrado por obras de  Mozart,  Prokófiev y Strauss, estará conducido por Karl-Heinz Steffens este viernes [día 21], a las 19:30 horas, en Auditorio de Tenerife y contará la presencia como solista invitada de la violinista Viviane Hagner, quien debuta con la orquesta.

El director alemán se reencuentra con la Sinfónica de Tenerife en esta nueva cita para la que ha preparado un repertorio que nos permitirá escuchar, en primer lugar, la obertura de Las bodas de Fígaro de Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). La pieza, preludio de la ópera estrenada en Viena en 1876, guarda una perfecta adaptación musical y expresiva de los dramas que precede: el día loco que van a vivir sus protagonistas. Encierra, además, los “aspectos clave de la burguesía emergente del siglo XVIII” que aparecen en la ópera, según la autora de las notas al programa, Marina Hervás: “los asaltos privados a las buenas maneras, la hipocresía de los cotilleos y los líos amorosos y la arbitrariedad de haber nacido sirvientes o amos”.

Si algo caracteriza a la música de Serguéi Prokófiev (1891-1953) es su sarcasmo y viveza, especialmente antes de la etapa prerrevolucionaria. Después de su regreso a la Unión Soviética en los años 30 se volvió más moderada y lírica, convencional. En esa época la doctrina de Stalin obliga a los artistas a alejarse “del servilismo y la sumisión de la cultura burguesa moderna”. El Concierto para violín y orquesta n.º 2 en Sol menor fue estrenado en 1935 en Madrid, durante una gira que el músico ruso efectuó acompañado por el violinista Robert Soetens. Se trata de una pieza que suena al gusto del “realismo socialista” ruso, pero que también revela el sonido personal de Prokófiev.

Uno de los principales atractivos de este concierto inspirado en los enfoques que diferentes compositores han hecho de la burguesía es la suite para orquesta El burgués gentilhombre de Richard Strauss (1864-1949). Fue compuesta inicialmente para acompañar la representación de la comedia homónima de Molière, y que esta tuviera lugar antes de Ariadne auf Naxos. Tras el fracaso que obtuvo, Strauss decidió convertirla en suite. La partitura, centrada en la burla por los deseos del ascenso de la clase media de la época, utiliza elementos para desconcertar y divertir al oyente.

Karl-Heinz Steffens es director musical de la Orquesta de la Ópera Estatal de Praga y recientemente ha sido nombrado director principal y asesor artístico de la Norrköping Symphony Orchestra. Considerado un director sobresaliente tanto en el mundo operístico como en el sinfónico, ha trabajado con orquestas como la Sinfónica de la Radio de Baviera, Filarmónica de Berlín, Filarmónica de Múnich, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, BBC Scottish Simphony, City of Birmingham y orquesta de la Tonhalle de Zúrich.

La violinista Viviane Hagner ha recibido elogios por su musicalidad y maestría desde su debut internacional con solo 12 años. Hagner ha actuado con las mejores orquestas del mundo incluyendo la Filarmónica de Berlín, Orquestas Sinfónicas de Boston y Chicago, Orquesta de Cleveland, Gewandhaus de Leipzig, New York Philharmonic y Philharmonia Orchestra, junto a directores como Ashkenazy, Barenboim, Eschenbach y Salonen. En su trayectoria, ha adquirido una profundidad y madurez en su forma de tocar que se refleja en su presencia serena y su magnífica seguridad en el escenario. Además de su aproximación profunda al repertorio clásico, Viviane Hagner es una gran defensora de las músicas nuevas, olvidadas y desconocidas, y está igualmente comprometida con la música de cámara.

Las entradas se pueden adquirir hasta dos horas antes del concierto en la página web www.sinfonicadetenerife.es, en taquilla de Auditorio con cita previa y de forma telefónica en el 902 317 327 de lunes a viernes de 10:00 a 17:00 horas y sábados de 10:00 a 14:00 horas, excepto festivos. Para disfrutar de esta experiencia cultural, es necesario llegar al recinto con antelación suficiente para realizar una entrada escalonada a la sala. La compra de las entradas supone la aceptación de las medidas implementadas por el centro cultural del Cabildo para hacer frente a la COVID-19, como el uso de la mascarilla o la asistencia solo con convivientes. Las medidas al completo, así como el plan de contingencia certificado por AENOR, se pueden consultar en la web del Auditorio.

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 Auditorium's Educational and Social programme offers three performances for the island’s pupils and their relatives

 

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife is a space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the islands’ Minister of Culture Enrique Arriaga. This week, it offers the educational programme Manos a la Ópera (Get the Opera Rolling) where 60 schoolchildren from Pre-Primary Education take part. Children interpret "The Mini Magic Flute" a retelling of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s (Salzburg, 1756 - Vienna, 1791) classical magical fairy tale. Three performances are offered for pupils from the island and the relatives of the small performers.

During the first performance that took place today 6 May 2021, 40 schoolchildren from the Nursery and Primary School Ernesto Castro Fariñas (Tacoronte), took part. For tomorrow's session, 50 attendees will come from both Nursery and Primary Schools San Benito (La Laguna) and El Tablero (Santa Cruz). The third performance will take place on Saturday with the relatives of the performers as audience.

Manos a la Ópera is an initiative by the Auditorium’s Educational and Social Department. It consists of creating a free version of an original opera made by and for children. The creation process is crucial, as schoolchildren take part in several artistic creative activities, such as literary creation, music, theatre, visual arts, and corporal expression. 

The schoolchildren learn through their own experience. They actively participate in the creation process by adapting and performing the opera. Then, they merge this process into their personal and group imagination. To this end, the programme provides them with workshops to acquire skills and resources. This enables them to appreciate, enjoy, value and produce art. By means of this important tool, curiosity for learning, knowledge of others, of their culture and the merit of collective work are promoted.

The complicity of the educational centres and the involvement of their teaching staff is a key factor to develop this programme. This year the initiative counted with fifteen teachers. Melodie Pérez directed the show with the assistance of Ariadna Simó. Ubaldo Pérez was on charge of the musical and sound creation. For the recording of the demos, he teamed up with Marina Machado and Mauricio di Rado. Marta Delgado was on charge of the set and costume design. In addition, the programme counted with the artistic and technical support of the Auditorium’s staff.

Apart from the performances, a programme and a teaching guide was produced as a resource for both schools and families, which can be downloaded from  www.auditoriodetenerife.com/educational-and-social-area.

The Mini Magic Flute takes place in a distant and rocky country that existed a long time ago. Darkness has taken over the sky since the magician Sarastro took the beautiful princess Pamina away from the Queen of the Night. One day, a boy called Tamino was fighting against a snake when some fairies, accompanied by goblins, managed to scare the monster away. The fairies decided to tell the Queen of the Night how courageous and brave the boy was. The queen decided to entrust him with the liberation of Princess Pamina and, in return, he could marry her. 

Tamino accepted. The fairies gave him a magic flute which had unprecedented and unknown powers that would help him when he needed it. All he had to do was to play a sweet melody and the magic would do the rest. Tamino and Papageno, the kingdom's bird-catcher, set out on a long journey to the Sun Temple, where the magician Sarastro was hiding Pamina. Both adventurers discover that nothing is what it seems: The Queen of the Night holds a dark secret...

On Friday, 7 May at 6:30 pm, the Auditorium's project shares its experience through the return to this activity.

 

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife is a venue linked to the Island's Council Department of Culture that is managed by the island’s minister of culture, Enrique Arriaga. It organises a public event to show the results of the Natura programme as part of its dance project Danza en Comunidad. The participants will share their experiences on Friday, 7 May at 6:30 pm in the Casa de la Cultura in El Rosario. Admission is free until the venue is full. 

The dance project Danza en Comunidad resumed its 2021 activity with Natura, an initiative that offers a space to dance in contact with nature. This initiative has been developed with a dozen participants in different municipal areas of El Rosario. Friday's meeting is the closing event of the programme. The performance will be first shown to municipal senior citizens' groups. 

This exhibition will share the experiences of the last few weeks. During this time, outdoor work has been carried out in which the need for contact with nature has been poetically expressed through Haiku (Japanese poetry writing). These Japanese creations are characterised by their short length. Based on them, the groups have worked with the sensations they suggest bringing them to physical movement.

The project coordinator, Laura Marrero, explains that "from the first session, we realised each participant’s need to reconnect with nature, to introspect". Regarding the implementation of the health measures, the coordinator acknowledges that "it was difficult because it was new in our methodologies. However, the activity was worth being carried out. It gave the participants the chance to explore a much-needed introspection." 

The team of Danza en Comunidad is comprised of the following active professionals in the performing arts and social work: Carmen Macías, Tania Fernández, Cristina Marín and the project coordinator, Laura Marrero.

The project Danza en Comunidad has been developed by the Educational and Social Area of the Auditorio de Tenerife since 2013. It resumed its activity with the collaboration of the INAEM (Spanish Ministry of Culture and Sports) through three actions: Natura, Training of Trainers and Misiva. These last two actions take place from April to July in several municipalities of the island. In all of them, the established preventive and hygienic measures against COVID-19 will be complied with. 

Danza en Comunidad aims to create different means and schedules to make dance available to any person, collective, group or association that needs to work with the tools of a dance professional. The main objective is to create a community that provides mediation and resources for dance and movement. All the information on this project is available on the web site www.auditoriodetenerife.com under the section Social Projects of the Educational and Social Area.
