The wind bands Unión y Amistad, Aída and El Salvador take part this Sunday in the new Primavera Musical programme
On Sunday, 15 May, at 11:30 am, the Auditorio de Tenerife hosts a new concert of the "Primavera Musical" cycle, with the performance of the brass bands Unión y Amistad and Aída, both from Santa Cruz, and El Salvador from La Matanza. The cycle is an initiative by the federation 'Federación Tinerfeña de Bandas de Música' and the collaboration of the Tenerife Island Council.
Under the direction of Iván Yeray Rodríguez, the Asociación Musical Unión y Amistad, founded in 1990 in the southwest of Santa Cruz, will perform three pieces: Sanlúcar de Barrameda by the Valencia-born composer Ferrer Ferrán, By the rivers of Babylon by the North-American Ed Huckeby, and a medley from Mecano, arranged by Azael Tormo.
The second brass band that participates during this Sunday's concert is the Asociación Cultural y Recreativa Unión Musical Aída, which was founded in 1981 in the San Andrés district of Santa Cruz. Juan Alexis González is the director of the brass band since 2011. The concert starts with the march Irak, by the Alicante-born Miguel Ángel Mas, Ross Roy, a work created by the Dutch Jacob de Haan, and the pasodoble Consuelo Císcar, by Ferrer Ferrán.
The Agrupación Musical El Salvador from La Matanza, founded in 1850, offers three pieces from its repertoire: Return of the Vikings, by the Belgian composer Bert Apertmont, the overture Four Winds, composed by the American Robert Sheldon, and The Nightmare Before Christmas, by the American Danny Elfman with arrangements by Michael Brown. The band is directed by Ismael Brajín.
Three companies selected by the national catalogue "Acieloabierto" will present their pieces starting at 19:30
The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural venue linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council and managed by its island's Minister of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. Next Saturday [day 14] at 7:30 p.m., Auditorio de Tenerife presents three outdoor dance shows. Träd, by Colectivo Lamajara; Am I what? by Elvi Balboa, and Du@l>, by Juan Carlos Avecilla, all of them selected by the national catalogue programme Acieloabierto (Spanish Ministry of Culture). The performances take place outside the building, and the access is free.
The Lamajara Collective is an organisation of artists who share an interest in the body’s language and its expressive possibilities. Träd is based on the question: What would happen if each day you woke up somewhere in the world, and you lived, one by one, each of those possible lives? On this basis, they explore the transformation of the body according to the circumstances. Another world is possible where there are no executioners or victims, where power is not above the human, and where values and the essence of people are essential.
The artistic proposals of Elvi Balboa normally turn public spaces and unique spaces into spaces of study and creation. The aim is to understand these spaces across all their riches and dimensions: spatial, historic, social and poetic. Am I what? her first creation as a director was nominated as best street show at the Pad Awards (Andalusian Association of Dance Professionals). It is an ode to the individuality of human beings as opposed to the collective group that tries to gobble it up. On this occasion, the language of dance provides a deep reflection on the consumption of bodies, seeing bodies and competing to be the most seen body.
The company by Juan Carlos Avecilla was founded in 2015. Throughout its trajectory, it has received several awards and recognitions. Du@l> is an arbitrary social construction resulting from the patriarchal organisation and male dominance, formed by series of values, definitions, beliefs and meanings about being, having to be and not being male, but above all, of their status in relation to women. It is possible to be a man and be scared, tender, charming, weak, peaceful, careful, etc. Two different bodies, two styles, and two forms of movement challenge one another metaphorically, thus showing superiority over the other through folk singing with the figure of two roosters.
The performances take place outside the building, close to where its cafeteria is located. This open-air dance evening brings to a close the programme of FAM Primavera, in collaboration with the Danza a Escena and Acieloabierto programmes of the Instituto Nacional de Artes Escénicas y de la Música del Ministerio de Cultura del Gobierno de España (National Institute of Performing Arts and Music of the Spanish Ministry of Culture).
La mezzosoprano Catriona Morison es la solista invitada para interpretar el Kindertotenlieder de Mahler, bajo la dirección de Víctor Pablo
La Sinfónica de Tenerife afronta esta semana un nuevo concierto de su temporada con un programa en el que se incluyen obras de Antón García Abril, Gustav Mahler y Antonín Dvorak, bajo la dirección de Víctor Pablo Pérez y con la participación como solista de la mezzosoprano escocesa Catriona Morison. La nueva cita será este viernes [día 13], a las 19:30 horas, en el Auditorio de Tenerife.
El concierto comenzará con Canciones y danzas para Dulcinea, de Antón García Abril, que el director honorario de la Sinfónica de Tenerife ha incluido en este programa para rendir homenaje al compositor español, fallecido hace poco más de un año. Esta suite francesa, que se estrenó en 1993 por la Sinfónica del Principado de Asturias, se centra en la figura del amor idílico, a través del personaje de Dulcinea.
La velada continuará con Kindertotenlieder, de Mahler. Estos lieder, que fueron estrenados en Viena en 1905, muestran un contraste de luz y oscuridad del compositor, que se inspiró en cinco poemas de Friedrick Rückert, que los dedicó a la muerte de sus hijos.
Este pesimismo se transforma en la segunda parte del concierto, donde la interpretación de la Sinfonía nº8 de Dvorak lleva al público a un ambiente de felicidad y confianza, que concluirá con una orquesta ofreciendo un caudal de color y luz. Esta pieza fue estrenada en Praga en 1890.
Víctor Pablo Pérez se pone por tercera vez al frente de la Sinfónica de Tenerife, formación de la que es director honorario. La solista invitada que participa en esta ocasión es la mezzosoprano escocesa-alemana Catriona Morison, ganadora del premio principal de Cardiff Singer of the World y del premio Song Award conjunto en 2017, fue miembro del conjunto de Oper Wuppertal desde 2016 hasta 2018, después de lo cual se convirtió en artista residente.
Los compromisos de invitada la han llevado al Festival Internacional de Edimburgo como Wellgunde (Götterdämmerung) con Sir Andrew Davis, Oper Köln como Cherubino, Bergen Nasjonale Opera como Charlotte, Deutsches Nationaltheater Weimar como Annina (Der Rosenkavalier) y Theatre Erfurt como Giove / Pisandro (Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria). Hizo su debut en el Salzburger Festspiele con Franz Welser-Möst en 2015 como parte del Young Singers Project, y ese mismo año también apareció en el Salzburger Pfingsfestspiele como Minerva en un concierto de extractos de Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria de Monteverdi con Animae Eterna.
Como recitalista, Catriona Morison trabaja regularmente con Malcolm Martineau, Simon Lepper, Joseph Middleton y la joven pianista japonesa Yuka Beppu, en lugares y festivales como el Wigmore Hall, el Festival Internacional de Edimburgo, el Leeds Lieder Festival y Weimarer Meisterkurs.
Catriona Morison ha interpretado oratorios en Europa y Rusia en repertorios que van desde Bach hasta Vaughan-Williams. Los puntos destacados incluyen una gira del Réquiem de Mozart con Teodor Currentzis y MusicAeterna, Pasión según San Mateo de Bach con MDR Sinfoniker, Réquiem de Duruflé con la Royal Liverpool Symphony Orchestra y Sir Andrew Davis, y El Mesías de Handel con la Royal National Orchestra de Escocia. Los futuros proyectos de oratorio la llevan a Hamburgo, Stuttgart y al Festival de Música de Schleswig-Holstein con Christoph Eschenbach.
Las entradas para el concierto en el Auditorio de Tenerife se pueden adquirir en www.sinfonicadetenerife.es, en la taquilla del propio recinto cultural del Cabildo y de forma teléfonica 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.

ˋFuenteovejuna´ opens the new series in October and it ends in June 2023 with the symphonic poem `Tannhäuserˊ
The Council of Tenerife is presenting the new season at the Tenerife Opera, where justice, vengeance and passion star in the proposals. The details of the seven titles, which begin in October 2022 and run until June 2023, were provided by the vice-president and councillor for Culture of the Council of Tenerife, Enrique Arriaga, and the island director of Culture, Alejandro Krawietz.
The island’s Minister of Culture, Enrique Arriaga explained that "the commitment to an offer that mixes contemporary titles with proposals from classical composers has been maintained, thus making it possible to reach all audiences, from complete beginners to absolute purists, also including our tourists, who really value our cultural offer”. “It is important for us that the audience continues to grow and that is why we are continuing the Family Opera programme, where titles are adapted for the youngest audiences" stated the councillor who emphasised a maxim of his department. “Culture is safe and necessary”.
Alejandro Krawietz recalled that "in the season that has just ended we began to open a line of searching in the contemporary opera scene in order to bring citizens closer to different ways of staging classical titles as well as the contemporary languages of current works”. The new season continues in that vein, with "the objective of Tenerife Opera to begin to include a wide range of opera expression" according to the island director.
This new offer includes the productions Fuenteovejuna, Un ballo in maschera, The old maid and the thief, Der Zwerg (The Dwarf), The little sweep and the symphonic poem Tannhäuser, as well as the traditional opera gala that brings together seven artists around the figure of Nancy Fabiola Herrera.
The season begins with Fuenteovejuna, by Jorge Muñiz, a contemporary opera in Spanish with a libretto by Javier Almuzara, that will take place on 18, 20 and 22 October in the Symphony Hall. This opera, in three acts, premièred in Asturias in 2018 and is the product of a commission by the Opera of Oviedo to the composer to celebrate the 400th year anniversary of the creation of Lope de Vega´s work, one of the most outstanding texts of the Spanish Golden Age. The musical direction is provided by Santiago Serrate and the stage direction is by Miguel del Arco. The cast is formed by María Miró, Antonio Gandía, Felipe Bou, Luis Cansino, David Astorga, Isabella Gaudí, Belén Elvira and Fernando Latorre.
The classic Giuseppe Verdi features in the second proposal of the season: Un ballo in maschera (A Masked Ball). It is a co-production between the Auditorio de Tenerife and the Teatro Regio di Parma, which will be staged on 22, 24 and 26 November. Alessandro d'Agostini and Marina Bianchi are in charge of musical and stage direction, respectively. José Bros, Sergey Kaydalov, Monica Zanettin, Enkeledja Shkoza and Sofía Esparza form the cast that recounts the assassination of King Gustav of Sweden at a masked ball at the hands of a gentleman from the court.
The opera gala this season revolves around the figure of the mezzosoprano Nancy Fabiola Herrera, who has brought together a series of guests at the Auditorio de Tenerife to celebrate 25 years since her debut in the leading role in Carmen. On 10 December, the Symphony Hall will have Yolanda Auyanet, Liping Zhang, Rubén Amoretti, Ramón Vargas, José Carbó, Leonel Gasso and María del Mar Moreno, under the musical direction of José Miguel Pérez-Sierra.
The first title of 2023 will be performed on 21, 22, 28 and 29 of January and will be the revival of the chamber opera The old maid and the thief, which the Tenerife Opera premièred in Spain in January. It is a work commissioned by the American radio station NBC to the musician Gian Carlo Menotti, who also wrote the libretto. It premièred in 1939 on the radio with great success and later Menotti produced an adaptation to stage it, which took place for the first time in Philadelphia in 1941. The musical direction of this production will be under Javier Lanis, with stage direction by Alicia Peraza. The cast of four singers is formed by Silvia Zorita, Fernando Campero, Candelaria González and Estefanía Perdomo, who share the stage with the actors Javier Socorro and Joel Hernández, and the stage manager Luis López Tejedor.
On 7, 9 and 11 March, the opera Der Zwerg (The Dwarf), the most emblematic work by the Austrian composer Alexander von Zemlinsky will come to the Auditorio de Tenerife for the very first time. The operas of Lille, Rennes, the Royaumont Foundation and the Theatre of Caen are producing this production in which the Princess of Spain receives a dwarf among her birthday gifts. Alessandro Palumbo and Daniel Jeanneteau are responsible for musical and stage direction, respectively, and Mojca Erdmann, Beatriz Díaz, Phillip Jekal Dmitry Golovnin and Nina Solodovnikova star in the leading roles.
This season it is offering The little sweep as an opera proposal for the entire family. On 15 and 16 April this production by the Fondazione Teatro Comunale di Modena will be staged with a cast formed by Carmen Mateo, Ramiro Maturana, Mar Campo, César Arrieta and Laura del Río, under the musical direction of Maya Barsacq and with Stefano Monti as stage director.
The 2022-2023 series of the Tenerife Opera will conclude with the symphonic poem in three movements for choir and orchestra, Tannhäuser, a work by Pedro Halffter that took inspiration from the opera of the same name by Richard Wagner. It will be Halffter himself who returns to the Auditorio de Tenerife as musical director on the nights of 9 and 10 June.
As usual, the Sinfónica de Tenerife (Tenerife Symphony Orchestra) will provide the music in all the productions, except for the chamber opera, which will be performed by Javier Lanis on the piano. Once again this year, the Opera Choir of Tenerife will also have a key role in the season.
The season pass campaign begins today for the renewal of 2019-2020 pass holders, who have a preferential period until 31 May. June 7 marks the opening of the period for people wishing to join the Opera Club, while individual tickets will go on sale on July 7.

The guitar player Pablo Sáinz-Villegas is making his debut on the island with the work by the maestro Joaquin Rodrigo
The guitarist from La Rioja, Pablo Sáinz-Villegas, will make his debut in the season of the Symphonic Orchestra of Tenerife in the performance of the work El concierto de Aranjuez, by Joaquin Rodrigo. The new event by the group of the Island Council will be this Friday  at 07:30 p.m., with a programme that also includes the overture of the opera Ruslan and Lyudmila, by Glinka, and Symphony No.4 by Tchaikovsky and the Brit Alexander Shelley conducting.
El concierto de Aranjuez is a work composed during the Spanish Civil War and its second movement, Adagio, has been covered by artists from the world of pop, rock, jazz (Carlos Santana, Chick Corea and Miles Davis, among others) as well as the version that Richard Anthony created for voice, whose melody has been performed by melodic and opera singers such as Plácido Domingo, Josep Carreras, Lola Flores, Montserrat Caballé and Amália Rodrigues. It has also been used in films and television advertisements.
The evening is getting underway with the overture of the opera Ruslan and Lyudmila. This is a chance to listen to a work by Mikhail Glinka, a composer with a limited presence on the regular programmes of auditoriums, despite being a benchmark for later composers such as Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov and Stravinsky. The music offered by the Symphonic Orchestra in Tenerife is based on texts by the poet Pushkin and with a clear Italian inspiration.
The second part of the concert will allow us to enjoy Symphony No.4 by Tchaikovsky, which moves between the melancholy and joy that characterised the composer during the creation of this work. His unease is reflected in the first movement, but over the course of the symphony his state of mind gradually improves, ending with the triumphant pursuit of happiness.
Since his debut at the Lincoln Center with the Philharmonic Orchestra of New York, Pablo Sáinz-Villegas has become a benchmark of contemporary symphonic guitar, playing with directors and orchestras such as the Philharmonic Orchestras of Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Toronto, Israel and the National Orchestra of Spain and performing in historic halls such as the Carnegie Hall in New York, the Philharmonie in Berlin, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid and the Suntory Hall in Tokyo. He has performed several global premières, including the first work written for guitar by John Williams.
Pablo Sáinz-Villegas played the piece he is performing this week with the Berlin Philharmonic and its conductor, Kirill Petrenko, on the occasion of the New Year concert. The guitarist from La Rioja has received more than thirty international awards including the Andrés Segovia, the Rioja Arts Award the Ojo Crítico Award from RNE and the Trelles Villademoros Award given by the Royal Corps of Nobility of the Principality of Asturias.
Alexander Shelley has conducted the world´s best orchestras across the six continents, notably including the Gewandhaus Orchestra of Leipzig, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and the Philharmonic Orchestras of Hong Kong, Luxembourg and Malaysia as well as the Symphony Orchestras of Sao Paulo, Houston, Montreal, Toronto, Munich, Singapore, Melbourne, Sydney and New Zealand.
In September 2015, Alexander Shelley replaced Pinchas Zukerman as musical director of the National Arts Centre Orchestra of Canada. Together, they have gone on important tours around Canada and Europe, have launched innovative projects, released several award winning albums at the JUNO Awards and, more recently, they have responded to social justice problems and issues deriving from the pandemic with the 'NACOLive' and 'UnDisrupted' series’.
Since January 2015, he has been the principal associate conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London, with which he directs an annual series of concerts at Cadogan Hall and he goes on national and international tours. In August 2017, he concluded his eight-year period as chief conductor of the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra.
For Alexander, it has always been and remains crucial to serve as a source of inspiration for future generations of musicians and fans of classical music, and he does so through his work as founder and artistic director of the Schumann Camerata and its innovative "440Hz" series in Düsseldorf and with his regular tours conducting the National Youth Orchestra of Germany.
The tickets for the concert in the Auditorio de Tenerife can be purchased on the website www.sinfonicadetenerife.es, at the auditorium's box office 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.
The family show ‘Malebable’ by Helena Lizari will take place this Friday, and the performance ‘Leira’ by Nova Galega de Danza next Sunday.
The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural venue linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the island's Minister of Culture Enrique Arriaga. It is scheduling two dance shows for this week. The first, Malebable, was created for children aged 0 to 5 and it will take place this Friday [6 May] in the Chamber Hall at 05:00 p.m., while Leira, winner of a Max Award, will be on at the Symphony Hall this Sunday [8 May] at 07:30 p.m.
Malebable is a sensory movement show that stimulates the imagination of children. The body and objects dance together creating a series of poetic images, an adventure of perception through textures, touch. It is a journey through sensations, the senses. The concept and the direction of this children´s proposal is by Helena Lizari, dancer, choreographer, a movement and psychomotricity teacher with a degree in theories and analysis of movement.
Tickets for Malebable can be purchased at a single price of €5 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 05:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 02:00 p.m. Children who have not reached the age of two on the day of the show will not need to purchase a ticket if they are not going to occupy a seat.
Leira has been a finalist for the Best Dance Show 2021 and winner of Best Male Dance Performer at the 2 XXIV Max Awards for Performing Arts. The body and the earth strengthen their ties in this dance and music show that transports the viewer to the harsh beauty of fieldwork. The woman is at the centre of this telluric connection, repeated day after day in a never-ending succession of seasons. The sun and the rain, the wind and the landscapes <will be> inhabited solely by a human choreography of farming implements, of bodies that carry loads and drag loads, that dance among the furrows ploughed in the earth.
Leira is also the simple joy of work done with one's hands, with the courage that comes from the body and returns to the body; the celebration of a timeless and magical Galicia. Nova Galega de Danza is the result of a process that began in 1998 when the dancers Vicente Colomer and Jaime P. Díaz reached their artistic and professional maturity and decided to combine their efforts. They searched for new forms of expression that blend the Galician folk tradition with contemporary dance.
Tickets for Leira can be purchased at a single price of €8 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 05:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 02:00 p.m. There are special discounts for the audience under 30 years of age, students, unemployed and large families.
Both shows are part of the program of FAM Primavera 2022 and they come alongside the artistic circuit supported by the National Institute of Performing Arts and Music (INAEM) and developed by the Spanish Network of Theatres: Danza a Escena 2022 The offer of FAM concludes on 14 May at 07:30 a.m. in the outside area of the Auditorio de Tenerife with three outdoor dance shows from the state programme Acieloabierto: Träd by Lamajara Collective; Am I what? by Elvi Balboa, and Du@l by Juan Carlos Avecilla.

‘La danse du soleilˊ is staged with 31 moving musicians and two dancers, under the direction of David Greilsammer.
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. The Auditorio de Tenerife presents La danse du soleil, a show by Geneva Camerata. The Swiss orchestra performs an original staging of two well-known works by Mozart and Lully with the Spanish dancers Juan Kruz Díaz de Garaio Esnaola and Martí Corbera. It takes place on Monday [2 May] at 6:00 pm at the Symphony Hall.
Chosen by the New York Times as "one of the best performances in the world of classical music", La danse du soleilpresents a hypnotic and amazing journey between music and dance, revealing an ode to life, hope, loss and love.
On stage, thirty-one musicians directed by the Israeli David Greilsammer move while they play masterpieces alongside choreography by the renowned Díaz de Garaio Esnaola. Together with Martí Corbera, they will perform an unforgettable, impressive and emotive show. This show has rarely been seen in its version with two dancers, and the Tenerife date is one of the special ones on this tour.
On a musical level, the programme that the orchestra will perform will be formed by an orchestral suite from Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme by Jean-Baptiste Lully (1632-1687) and by the popular Symphony No. 40 in G minor by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791), which will close the show after a short interlude.
Audacious, innovative and adventurous, the Geneva Camerata is formed by the most brilliant and creative soloists of the young generation. Praised by the press as one of the world's most captivating and unique groups, Geneva Camerata performs music from all periods and of all styles, from baroque to contemporary, electronic, jazz, rock and world music. It also creates eclectic multidisciplinary projects that bring together music, dance, theatre and visual arts.
David Greilsammer, conductor and pianist, is known for his eclectic and fascinating programmes as well as his Mozartian repertoire. He is considered one of today's most daring and adventurous classical artists.
The Basque choreographer, dancer, composer and director Juan Kruz Díaz de Garaio Esnaola shows in his work his interest in combining his musical and dance training. He relentlessly explores the relationship between both disciplines and questions the role and integration of music in the theatrical-performance event.
Barcelona performer Martí Corbera has danced on some of the world's most important stages and festivals. Corbera's intense collaboration with Díaz de Garaio Esnaola began at the Bienal de Flamenco in Seville. Since then, both artists have collaborated on several contemporary dance projects, such as the work Flamencolorquiano, presented at the Granada Festival 2019.
Tickets can be purchased at a single price of €15 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. There are special discounts for the audience under 30 years of age, students, unemployed and large families.
This performance is starred by the US-Singer Madeline Bell and her Quartet, preceded by the Norwegian pianist Norvald Dahl.
The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural venue linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by its island's Minister of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. On Saturday [30th] at 07.30 p.m. it celebrates the International Jazz Day with a concert in the Chamber Hall by the Madeline Bell Quartet, preceded by the pianist Norvald Dahl.
Madeline Bell, originally from New Jersey, USA, began her love affair with music in the choir of her church, always keeping with the influence of gospel. She began to tour when she was young and one musical -Black Christmas- brought her to Europe, where she decided to stay. In London during the late sixties, she started collaborating with the popular singer Dusty Springfield and, in very little time, she managed to record solo and become appreciated by many of the great British pop and rock stars of the time.
With her velvety voice, she was the leader of the mythical band Blue Mink, in which the guitarist Alan Parker played along with bassist Herby Flowers and percussionist Ray Cooper - and her list of collaborations as a backing vocalist on different artists' albums is very extensive, ranging from the Stones themselves to Joe Cocker, John Lennon, Stevie Wonder, Donna Summer or Elton John. She is currently working with some of the best European big bands and is a frequent patron of the mythical Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club of London.
The Madeline Bell Quartet is made up of the American singer whose name it bears, Andrés Litwin on the drums, Francis Posé on the double bass, and David Lenker on the piano. The saxophonist from Tenerife Kike Perdomo will play as a guest artist.
The Norwegian piano player and composer Norvald Dahl is making his way to the international jazz scene with his solo piano- project Flying High. His music, influenced by contemporary composers and Norwegian folk music, is experimental, melodic, expressive and at times hypnotic. On this occasion, Dahl will present some of his solo material in addition to some freshly composed music! There will also be a small duo session with Perdomo.
Dahl grew up in a family surrounded with folk music. His grandfather, a black smith and a fiddler, was also a composer. At the age of five, Dahl started improvising on the piano. He soon took up classical training, but after a few years he found blues, jazz, and improvisation more to his liking. Dahl has been involved in many international projects, being his latest project the piano trio Pandemic Solution he recently toured with in Norway.
In November 2011, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) officially designated 30 April as International Jazz Day.

El trompetista venezolano participará en el concierto de este viernes, que será dirigido por Christian Vásquez
La Sinfónica de Tenerife, proyecto que depende del área de Cultura del Cabildo que gestiona el consejero Enrique Arriaga, afronta esta semana el estreno mundial de la obra Albares, concerto para fliscorno y orquesta, del venezolano Pacho Flores, que estará en la isla como solista de esta pieza acompañando a la formación del Cabildo en un programa que, bajo la dirección de su compatriota Christian Vásquez, también incluye Danzas latinas, concierto para trompeta y orquesta, de Efraín Oscher, y la Sinfonía nº5, de Piotr Chaikovski. La cita será este viernes [día 29] a las 19:30 horas en la Sala Sinfónica.
Para la interpretación de Albares, Flores recurre a una familia de fliscornos con el siguiente desarrollo que explica el compositor en el programa del concierto. “Para el primer movimiento [Bambuco en Valencia] he utilizado un fliscorno en Do. Aquí he querido representar un bambuco, baile muy popular en Colombia y los Andes venezolanos. Para el segundo [Milonga en Mislata] he utilizado un fliscorno grave en La, con una nostálgica milonga, género maravilloso de perfume rioplatense, típico en Argentina y Uruguay. El tercer movimiento [Periquera en Navajas] es una periquera, una suerte de joropo típico de los llanos venezolanos y parte de los llanos colombianos, que representa alegría y fiesta”.
Pacho Flores también será el protagonista en la primera pieza del concierto, compuesta por el uruguayo Efraín Oscher (Montevideo, 1974), quien la creó para celebrar sus diez años de colaboración con el trompetista venezolano. Esta obra fue un encargo realizado por la Real Filharmonía de Galicia que se estrenó en noviembre de 2019 en Santiago de Compostela y que interpreta por primera vez la Sinfónica de Tenerife.
La obra está compuesta de cinco danzas y cada una de ellas es ejecutada con un instrumento distinto, alguno construido especialmente para Flores: Bomba de Puerto Rico con corneta en mi bemol, Zamba de Argentina con fliscorno, Samba de Brasil con trompeta en do, Bembé de Cuba con trompeta en re y Milonga del Uruguay con corneta en fa.
La segunda parte del concierto de este viernes se dedica a la Sinfonía nº5 de Chaikovski, una obra que, junto a la Sexta -conocida como la Patética- constituyen lo mejor del pensamiento sinfónico del compositor. La Quinta transmite una cierta tendencia a una blanda sensualidad y en ella el autor se posiciona como el portavoz del mal del siglo, del pesimismo romántico que suaviza con fases más cordiales en los que se manifiesta la influencia del italianismo musical.
El solista en el concierto de esta semana de la Sinfónica de Tenerife ha obtenido el primer premio de los concursos Maurice André, Philip Jones y Cittá di Porcia. Formado en “El Sistema”, Pacho Flores ha ofrecido recitales en Carnegie Hall, Sala Pleyel de París o Opera City de Tokio.
