30 May 12:00 h.

 Auditorio de Tenerife (Sala Sinfónica)

Auditorio de Tenerife, in collaboration with the San Miguel Arcángel Royal Canarian Academy of Fine Arts, offers a concert by the organist Juan María Pedrero, who will play the colossal instrument housed in the walls of Symphony Hall.


The programme covers a rich chronological overview that moves between the 17th and the 20th century. It is bounded by a framework of French works, like the baroque André Raison or members of the new organ school such as Olivier Messiaen and Jehan Alain. It also pays tribute to four robust German composers like the omnipresent Johan Sebastian Bach or the post-Romantic Max Reger. The romantic Felix Mendelssohn and a great admirer of the former; and Wagner, the eminently operatic author of whom J.M. Pedrero includes his own transcription of the prelude to Act I of Lohengrin. There is a common element in this wide range of languages and styles: in three of the works, we find the baroque form known as a passacaglia, passacaille (from the Spanish pasacalle). It consists of a persistent bass with an uncertain number of variations that challenge the creator’s inventiveness and the imagination of the audience.
