Encuentro ROCE Tenerife 2020 fue inaugurado por el consejero de Cultura para los 162 inscritos que asistieron virtualmente

 

El Auditorio de Tenerife acogió ayer [jueves 17] un acto internacional, Encuentro ROCE Tenerife 2020, en el que se debatió en base al lema de este año: Música en comunidad: participación, inclusión y bienestar. La cita fue inaugurada por el vicepresidente y consejero de Cultura del Cabildo de Tenerife, Enrique Arriaga, y la presidenta de la Red de Organizaciones de Conciertos Educativos (ROCE), Silvia Carretero.

Arriaga destacó que, “a pesar de las circunstancias que nos obligan a realizar este año en un formato diferente, no presencial, quiero resaltar el trabajo inmenso realizado por la organización para reunir en este evento en línea a más de 160 participantes de 14 países”. Para el consejero de Cultura del Cabildo, “esta edición del Encuentro ROCE mantiene su esencia y también su objetivo: conocer, converger y proponer un punto de partida sobre futuros proyectos y estrategias comunes en el ámbito de la celebración de conciertos educativos” y destacó que “como dice el lema de esta edición, es de vital importancia fomentar la música en comunidad, a través de la participación, la inclusión y el bienestar”.

La presidenta de ROCE aseguró que “este encuentro es un nuevo renacer, nos hemos tenido que adaptar a todo lo que iba ocurriendo y ha sido una carrera de fondo, pero muy enriquecedora”. “Agradezco mucho el esfuerzo de todo el equipo que ha hecho posible nuestro decimoprimer encuentro y me siento muy orgullosa de todos ellos porque ante la adversidad nos hemos hecho más fuertes”, añadió Carretero.

Tras la explicación por parte del director artístico del Auditorio de Tenerife, José Luis Rivero, de la dinámica del encuentro, la profesora de la Universidad de La Laguna (ULL) Inmaculada Perdomo ofreció una relatoría en la que extractó las ideas fuerza de los materiales audiovisuales compartidos previamente para los participantes. “La música es un arte educativo por excelencia”, señaló la doctora en Filosofía y Profesora Titular del área de Lógica y Filosofía de la Ciencia de la ULL.

Los participantes online se distribuyeron en tres salas virtuales, divididos en función de las mesas de trabajo organizadas: participación, inclusión y bienestar. Tras dos horas de trabajo, el vicepresidente de ROCE, Mikel Cañada, de la Orquesta Sinfónica de Euskadi, ofreció las conclusiones de su mesa, la de Participación, la más numerosa (70 personas), en la que se ahondó en “la necesidad del trabajo horizontal en este tipo de procesos para poder empatizar mejor, que las ideas surjan de la propia comunidad y fomentar la investigación desde las instituciones”.

Las conclusiones de la mesa de Inclusión, con más de 40 personas, las ofreció Dochy Lichtensztajn, de la Filarmónica de Israel, quien destacó “el compromiso de las orquestas y los profesionales del sector con los conciertos educativos y sociales”, aunque remarcó la necesidad de “más comunicación interna en las organizaciones”.

José Luis Rivero compartió las conclusiones de la mesa de Bienestar, con más de 40 inscritos, en la que se dejó clara la importancia de las personas detrás de los proyectos. “La música es una gran herramienta porque se sitúa en un espacio neutro”, se comentó, así como la reivindicación del bienestar “como experiencia de aprendizajes que contiene lo social, lo artístico y el conmoverse internamente; es un proceso al que se llega con trabajo previo y posterior a cada proyecto”. “A partir de la experiencia artística se puede dar un cambio en los jóvenes”, finalizó Rivero.

El objetivo de este encuentro era conocer, converger y proponer un punto de partida sobre futuros proyectos y estrategias comunes en este ámbito. El Encuentro ROCE Tenerife 2020 reflexionó acerca de los retos actuales que la música plantea en relación a los desafíos sociales contemporáneos dotando de herramientas a la ciudadanía para fomentar un acercamiento crítico y activo a la música.

La dinámica del encuentro comenzó a principios de mes, cuando los inscritos tenían disponible en la web de ROCE los recursos audiovisuales que debían visionar, ya que fueron la base de la que se partió en las mesas de trabajo de ayer. Los materiales se dividieron entre: Ponencias de los invitados; Conversatorios entre los ponentes y Alberto Cabedo (Universidad Jaume I); Nicolás Barbieri (Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona), y José Luis Rivero; y Comunicaciones, a través de proyectos presentados por entidades y profesionales inscritos.

Los ponentes principales de este XI Encuentro ROCE, cuyas conferencias fueron grabadas y visualizadas previamente, fueron: Lee Higgins, director del Centro Internacional de Música Comunitaria con sede en St John York University; Alicia de Bánffy-Hall, de la Universidad de Eichstätt-Ingolstadt y autora del libro The development of community music in Munich, y María Claudia Parias, presidenta de la Fundación Batuta y vicepresidenta de ISPA.

Tickets for Friday’s concert, that closes the Cabildo’s ensemble first phase of the season, are sold out

 

The Sinfónica de Tenerife, under the Cabildo’s Department of Culture led by councillor Enrique Arriaga, has sold out the tickets for the concert on Friday, the 18th at 7:30 pm at the Auditorio de Tenerife. This is their last concert in the first phase of the season. 

The principal conductor of the Tenerife ensemble, Antonio Méndez, will lead a concert of German Romanticism -with the current reduced orchestra. They will play Serenade nº 1 in D major, op. 11, by Johannes Brahms and Symphony nº 3 in E flat major Renana, op. 97, by Robert Schumann.

In 1858, during his period at the court of Detmolt, Johannes Brahms composed Serenade nº 1 in D major, op. 11 for flute, two clarinets, bassoon, horn, and a string quartet; he would rewrite this version following the advice of Joseph Joachim for a symphonic ensemble. The score is eclectic and is reminiscent of previous authors; in fact, at the beginning, the horn clearly evokes Haydn’s music writings.

The harmonic forms and languages of the German author also recall Mozart, specifically in the minuets, although he does not stray from the Romantic ideal that permeates his work. The adagio, regarded as the climax of this piece, is a passage rich in the wood section alone and its different combinations. 

Robert Schumann composed Symphony nº 3 in E flat major Renana, op. 97 in 1850, just a few years before his death in 1856 and when he was starting a new professional period in Dusseldorf. Chronologically, this composition corresponds to his last symphony and a series of traditional sound elements prevail. This melodic, even folkloric spirit led the score to become widely popular very soon. 

The five-movement structure starts with a very lively theme, a syncopated rhythm in the form of a fanfare. The three central movements evoke different scenes of nature and moods; it then goes into the relaxed atmosphere of the Scherzo and the Intermezzo. The fourth movement is a tribute to the conclusion of the works of Cologne Cathedral, under construction since 1248; it finishes with a coda that recalls the energetic sound of the beginning, with a rhythm and clear music articulation that lend it a feeling of lightness. 

Sinfónica de Tenerife’s principal conductor since the 2018/2019 season, Antonio Méndez, is one of the most sought-after and best-established conductors of his generation. He is has established links with major European orchestras and 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 or Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg.

To enjoy this cultural experience offered by the Cabildo de Tenerife please arrive at the venue with time enough to enter the auditorium gradually. Buying the tickets implies the user unconditionally accepts the contents of the measures implemented by the Auditorio de Tenerife to deal with COVID-19, with no exceptions or reservations, including wearing a face mask or coming only with people you live with.  The measures in full and the AENOR-certified contingency plan are available on Auditorio’s website.

The show, to take place on Saturday, features Italian music director Sesto Quatrini leading Sinfónica de Tenerife

 

Auditorio de Tenerife, under the Cabildo de Tenerife’s Department of Culture run by councillor Enrique Arriaga, presents the Opera Gala, Ópera de Tenerife’s third title in the 2020/2021 season. The show, which is taking place on Saturday, the 12th at 7:30 pm at Auditorio de Tenerife’s Sala Sinfónica features tenor José Bros, soprano Raquel Lojendio and mezzo soprano María José Montiel.

The councillor of Culture revealed the details of the gala along with the singers and Sesto Quatrini, who is to lead the Sinfónica de Tenerife. Arriaga announced that “tickets are sold out” and pointed out that “Auditorio de Tenerife is one of the few international theatres to keep active, offering a fully safe cultural programme, as this third opera title will show”.

José Bros stated that “it’s a pleasure to be in Tenerife with this wonderful crew who works to make sure everything meets the highest standards”. “I thank the work of those who don’t get to be seen, especially our stage manager, who looks after us more than ever to make sure rehearsals are safe; we must be prudent and do our part too”. Lastly, he asked for the audience’s support, “I am myself a consumer of culture and have not stopped going to the theatre”. Bros said goodbye revealing that “the gala is going to be full of great emotions, a balm for the soul of every spectator”.

Tenerife-born Raquel Lojendio is “delighted to be back on my island to sing”. As an artist, Lojendio explained that “an open theatre in the current circumstances means that there is intelligence and sensitivity behind it and Auditorio de Tenerife proves that it can be done”. That is why she asks for the audience’s support because “What can be better than filling our time with beauty?”.

María José Montiel is delighted to be at Ópera de Tenerife for the first time, as her engagements have made it impossible up till now; she feels at ease with the other singers: “We’ve sung together many times”. The mezzo soprano, who sang at the Auditorio fifteen years ago in a festival, said that “this is a time to defend culture because we just can’t remain in darkness: we’ve all fed on culture during this period, be it a book, a TV series or online concerts”.

The musical director was grateful for being at Ópera de Tenerife, a presence that was forged two years ago with a project that had to be postponed. Quatrini talked about the programme, “where Donizetti and Puccini feature prominently”. “Although opera emerged in Italy, it’s a European product and we must support it”, Quatrini explained. He also shared that his agent died from COVID-19 last March, something that has deeply affected him. “My only wish is that we go back to normal soon and that theatres can be full of people again”, the maestro said, to then add that “theatres are safe places, more than a shopping centre or even our homes”.

The repertoire includes arias of L’elisir d’amoreLa bohémeCarmen or La traviata, created by composers like Gaetano Donizetti, Giacomo Puccini, Georges Bizet and Giuseppe Verdi, among others.

The Sinfónica will open the gala with Donizetti’s Sinfonia de Don Pasquale. It will then be the time for the singers, who will first sing solo. Bros will interpret the famous aria Una furtiva lagrima of L'elisir d'amore, again by Donizetti; then Lojendio will sing Quando men vo of Puccini’s La bohème, and O mio Fernando of La favorita, by Donizetti in Montiel’s voice.

The programme continues with Donna reale... Un lampo, un lampo orribile by Roberto Devereux, Donizetti; Intermezzo of Suor Angelica, Puccini; Viens, Mallika... Sous le dôme épais of Lakmé, Delibes; Preludio acto III of Edgar, Puccini; È la solita storia del pastore of L’arlesiana, Cilea; PreludioL'abbandono and La tregenda de Le Villi, Puccini; Mon cœur s'ouvre à ta voix de Samson et Dalila, Saint-Saëns; Ecco: respiro appena… Io son l’umile ancella” of Adriana Lecouvreur, Cilea; C’est toi, c’est moi of Carmen, Bizet; and Libiam ne’ lieti calici of La traviata, Verdi.

On the stage of Sala Sinfónica the musicians, singers and conductor will comply with all the safety measures to give the audience a wonderful show.

It was very well received and there is a large number of candidates for the cast of this academy”, said the Cabildo’s councillor of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. “Due to Covid restrictions, auditions this year will not be in person but this does not mean a rigorous test calendar cannot be arranged”, said the councillor, who also encouraged all the candidates and wished them luck. 

The singers chosen will start their training in January at this comprehensive training academy for young artists that is directed by Giulio Zappa. This time they will perform Il matrimonio segreto in Auditorio de Tenerife’s Sala Sinfónica on 18, 19, 20 and 21 March 2021. Twelve singers will be chosen for six different roles as there are two casts (two artists per role) each performing twice. 

Sopranos enter for the role of Carolina and Elisetta: 77 have registered for Carolina, 28 of whom also aspire to the role of Elisetta, while 54 singers entered for the part of Elisseta, with again 28 of them also auditioning for Carolina. A total of 29 mezzo sopranos hope to become Fidalma and 22 tenors would like to be Paolino. Robinson and Geronimo are to be played by bass baritones: 30 men have opted to enter for Robinson, 8 of whom are also auditioning for the role of Geronimo, while 18 hope to play Geronimo, with again 8 auditioning for Robinson too.

This year, most of the candidates are Italian (89 singers), followed by Spaniards (34). French (7), Japanese (7), Chilean (6), Polish (5), Portuguese (5), German (4), North American (3) and Russian (3), among many others.

Il matrimonio segreto will have Davide Levi as musical director to lead Sinfónica de Tenerife, that coproduces with Ópera de Tenerife. As for stage director, Auditorio de Tenerife has proposed Roberto Catalano, who works with stage designer Emanuele Sinisi, costume designer Ilaria Ariemme and lighting designer Fiammetta Baldiserri.

Tests were meant to take place between 11 and 19 May 2020 but the health crisis forced us to postpone them to November and December in Spain (Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Madrid) and Italy (Parma and Palermo). However, due to the current situation we have finally opted for online auditioning with candidates sending a video to the assessment committee.  

When this change was announced the application period was extended, which was an incentive to Latin and North American singers who, under normal circumstances, do not usually come to auditions. So, although live tests cannot be experienced, new opportunities have emerged. Registered candidates must deliver their videos before 15 December 2020. All the information on the process is available on www.operaestudio.eu.

The aim of this programme for young artists is to provide holistic, highly specialized training in international opera singing, acting as showcase and springboard for many of them. Ópera (e)Studio also highlights the Auditorio de Tenerife’s technical production, having been recognised by the European Commission’s Creative Europe scheme, which shows the development, sustainability, job creation and training in 2019 and 2020.
