El parisino Mathieu Dufour interpretará como solista el Concierto para flauta de Ibert, en un programa que será dirigido por Ludovic Morlot

 

La Sinfónica de Tenerife recupera el instrumento de la flauta como protagonista en un concierto de temporada después de ocho años. El parisino Mathieu Dufour será el solista en el Concierto para flauta de Ibert, en un programa que incluye la Cuarta Sinfonía de Brahms y El buey sobre el tejado, de Darius Milhaud. El concierto será este viernes (día 24), a partir de las 19:30 horas en el Auditorio de Tenerife y contará con la dirección de Ludovic Morlot.

El Concierto para flauta de Jacques Ibert sonará por primera vez en el repertorio de la Sinfónica de Tenerife. Este trabajo de 1933 está dedicado al flautista Marcel Moyse y se trata de una pieza de gran complejidad técnica para el solista, papel que desempeñará en esta oportunidad Mathieu Dufour. La partitura supone un contraste estético entre la hegemonía de la creatividad alemana del siglo XIX y las corrientes identitarias del XX marcadas por los nuevos medios de comunicación de masas como el cine, la radio o el fonógrafo.

Previamente, la Sinfónica interpretará El buey sobre el tejado, op.58, una partitura de Darius Milhaud firmada en 1919. Esta obra supone una fantasía musical ambientada en diferentes aires lusoamericanos como el tango, samba o fado, que tuvo ocasión de descubrir en el transcurso de una visita diplomática. Ideada originalmente para violín y piano, la obra fue compuesta con la intención de acompañar una película de Charles Chaplin.

La orquesta afrontará en la segunda parte del concierto la Sinfonía nº4 en mi menor, op.98 de Johannes Brahms, fiel representante de la tradición germánica. La obra compuesta en el verano de 1884 registró un gran éxito en su estreno en Hamburgo, lo que le llevó a una gira por Alemania y Países Bajos con Hans von Büllow a la batuta. La composición aborda sentimientos que oscilan entre la alegría y el dolor; y conceptos como la humildad o la eternidad.

La cita de esta semana nos pemite disfrutar por primera vez de Ludovic Morlot al frente de la Sinfónica de Tenerife. Actualmente es el director musical de la Sinfónica de Barcelona. Fue director musical de la Sinfónica de Seattle entre 2011 y 2019, etapa en la que obtuvo cinco premios Grammy con la orquesta, y actualmente la dirige en calidad de director emérito. También es artista asociado de la Filarmónica de la BBC desde 2019. Ha sido miembro fundador y director artístico de la Joven Orquesta Nacional de China entre 2017 y 2021 y director titular de La Monnaie entre 2012 y 2014.

Como director invitado, destaca el estreno estadounidense de Latest de Betsy Jolas con la Sinfónica de San Francisco, la Pasión según San Mateo de Bent Sorensen con la Sinfónica Nacional de Dinamarca y Vespers de John Luther Adam con la City of Birmingham Symphony. Morlot ha sido director invitado de la Filarmónica de Berlín, Royal Concertgebouw, Filarmónica Checa, Dresden Staatskapelle, Filarmónica de Londres, la Filarmónica de Nueva York, Filarmónica de Los Ángeles, Sinfónicas de Chicago y Filadelfia, Filarmónica de Seúl, Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra y la Sinfónica de Melbourne.

Mathieu Dufour estudió flauta en el Conservatorio de Lyon, donde se le concedió de forma unánime el primer premio.  En 1990 obtiene el segundo premio en el Jean-Pierre Rampal International Flute Competition y el tercer puesto en el International Flute Competition de Budapest en 1991. En 1997, se hizo con el segundo galardón en el International Flute Competition de Kobe, Japón. Ha sido flauta solista de la Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse y en la Ópera de París. En 1999, es nombrado flauta solista de la Chicago Symphony Orchestra y, entre 2015 y 2022, trabaja como flauta solista de la Filarmónica de Berlín. Desde 2011 posee el título honorario de «Officier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres» concedido por el Ministro de Cultura francés.

Dufour ha ofrecido conciertos en el Carnegie Hall y en el Festival de Lucerna bajo la batuta de Daniel Barenboim con la Chicago Symphony Orchestra. También ha colaborado como solista con otros directores como Pierre Boulez, Riccardo Muti, Charles Dutoit, Fabio Luisi, David Roberston. Dufour ofrece clases magistrales en Estados Unidos, Canadá, Europa, Sudamérica y Asia. Además, ha sido miembro del claustro de la DePaul University y la Rosevelt University de Chicago, la Barenboim Akademie de Berlín o la Berlin Philharmonie Akademie.

José Lorenzo Chinea Cáceres será el encargado de desvelar las claves de estas tres piezas en la charla previa al concierto enmarcada en el ciclo de conferencias de la Asociación Tinerfeña de Amigos de la Música. Será a partir de las 18:30 horas en la Sala Avenida, ubicada en el hall del Auditorio de Tenerife.

Las entradas para este concierto podrán adquirirse hasta el mismo día del evento, a través de la página web www.sinfonicadetenerife.es, en la taquilla del propio recinto cultural del Cabildo o 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.

Durante el fin de semana se compartieron las puestas en escena preparadas y recibieron los diplomas por su asistencia

 

El Auditorio de Tenerife organizó dos jornadas de fin de curso de las Escuelas de Teatro de Tenerife. El programa del Cabildo reunió el pasado fin de semana a un centenar de niños y niñas entre los 7 y los 14 años de 10 grupos diferentes de la isla.

Las escuelas que participaron en este acto pertenecen a los municipios de Candelaria, El Rosario, El Sauzal, Guía de Isora, La Laguna, La Orotava, y Tegueste. Los profesores de las Escuelas de Teatro que estuvieron organizando y ateniendo durante estas jornadas a los alumnos y a sus familias fueron Miguel Ángel Batista, Francisco Gómez y Sigrid Ojel.

El consejero insular de Cultura, José Carlos Acha, estuvo presente los dos días y también asistieron los concejales de Cultura de El Sauzal (Eusebio Castillo), El Rosario (Jennifer Torres), Candelaria (Manuel González) y Tegueste (Candelaria García) y la concejal de Patrimonio de La Orotava (Delia Escobar).

José Carlos Acha valoró esta iniciativa, al señalar que “estos encuentros son muy positivos para los alumnos, que ven recompensado su esfuerzo; para sus familias, que comparten el resultado de esta actividad con sus hijos, y también para el Auditorio, que recibe nuevo público y nueva energía para continuar con proyectos tan enriquecedores como este”.

“Desde el Cabildo tenemos muy clara la apuesta por el arte como herramienta social y estas escuelas de teatro son un ejemplo de ello, ya que se utilizan a profesionales del sector para enriquecer el tiempo de ocio de muchas personas de toda la isla”, determinó el consejero.

Los jóvenes pusieron sobre el escenario de la Sala Castillo del Auditorio de Tenerife las obras de teatro que llevan preparando todo el curso junto a sus profesores, ya que no solo reciben formación teatral, sino que también aprenden a formar parte de un proyecto escénico que acaba siendo estrenado con sus familias como público. El trabajo en equipo, la memorización, la expresión corporal, la voz y la concentración son solo algunas de las habilidades que se potencian con estas jornadas.

Las Escuelas de dividen por franjas de edad, siendo las primeras en celebrar su final de curso las pertenecientes a los grupos A (de 7 a 11 años) y B (de 12 a 14 años). El alumnado de los grupos C (de 15 a 17 años) y D (mayores de 18) tendrán su clausura el próximo mes de junio.

La red insular de Escuelas de Teatro de Tenerife -un programa del Área Educativa y Social de Auditorio de Tenerife- se desarrolla en colaboración con los municipios de la isla. El desarrollo de estas clases tiene lugar durante todo el curso escolar en centros educativos y culturales, impartiendo formación teatral a niños, jóvenes y adultos.

Una de las finalidades principales de estas Escuelas de Teatro es potenciar una afición artística de calidad y colaborar con el desarrollo cultural de su entorno. Todos los profesores que imparten clase en los distintos puntos de la isla para este programa están titulados en Arte Dramático por la Escuela de Actores de Canarias. El proceso para inscribirse en el próximo curso se informará a través de la sección de Educativa y Social de la web del Auditorio: www.auditoriodetenerife.com.

The Asturian musician will perform Bach's 'Partita No. 6' and Brahms' 'Sonata No. 3'.

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife is offering a concert by the young pianist Martín García García on Tuesday, May 21st. The event of the Chamber Music Cycle starts at 7:30 p.m. The programme comprises the works Partita No. 6 in E minor, BWV 830, by Johann Sebastian Bach and Sonata No. 3 in F minor, Op. 5 by Johannes Brahms. 

The Asturian pianist will play this composition of Bach, the last of his harpsichord partitas, written in 1731. While it follows the basic structure of Baroque dance suites, it also departs from the traditional framework. It incorporates seven movements, beginning with a Toccata divided into three parts that include an episode in a three-voice fugue in the middle. This monumental and innovative work represents the series's culmination in its immensity of proportions, harmonic depth, technical difficulty, and expressive character.

The recital continues with another monumental piano work: Brahms' Sonata No. 3 in F minor, Op. 5. This particular piece solidified Brahms' status as Beethoven's absolute heir during his third period while still maintaining his own identity and originality. The piano writing is extremely dense, clearly reaffirming Brahms' unique character. Brahms began composing the second movement first, inspired by the verses of writer Otto Julius Inkermann. The sonata is divided into five movements and displays the legacy of Bach and Beethoven.

Martín García García was born in Gijón in 1996. In 2023, he gave roughly 80 performances worldwide, including his debuts in Korea, Mexico, and Brazil. He has also visited many countries to give concerts and perform with orchestras such as the NHK Symphony, Seoul Philharmonic, Hamburg Symphoniker, Warsaw Philharmonic, Lithuanian National Symphony, and the Orchestra of Brasilia.

García García has obtained significant global distinctions, such as first place at the '2021 Cleveland International Piano Competition or third place in the '2021 International Chopin Piano Competition. In 2022, he also released his first album, 'Chopin and His Máster', produced by the artist and recorded in the hall that the Fazioli piano factory has in Sacile (Italy).

The single tickets can be purchased at a single price of €15 and 5 for under 30s 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 discounts for students, unemployed and large families.

This Saturday, the festival concludes its programme with the display of a creative residency about light, vertical dance and music

 

This Saturday (18th) marks the third week of NUMAcircuit 24 with a double bill at the Auditorio de Tenerife: the guitarist Stian Westerhus will perform in a concert taking place at 8:00 p.m. Beforehand, at 6:30 p.m., it will be possible to enjoy the show of the residency Excavación (Excavation) produced by the choreographer and dancer Vanesa Ávila and the visual artist Arístides García, Tenerife natives who reside in Paris and Berlin, respectively, together with Gonçalo Cardoso. 

Stian Westerhus is one of northern Europe's most fascinating abstract guitarists. His album Didymoi Dreams with the vocalist Sidsel Endresen was a unique combination of abusing his guitar with surprising vocal outbursts. Alongside collaborations with leading figures from the experimental scene, such as Puma, Nils Petter Molvær, Jaga Jazzist and Britten Sinfonia, he has released three acclaimed solo albums with the prestigious label Rune Grammofon.

This time, he is headlining the line-up of the NUMAcircuit festival in an electronic rock duo alongside the percussionist Erland Dahlen, a former member of his previous group Pale Horse, whose songs have the freedom to ebb and flow, stretch and contract, as if in a set that has been completely improvised.

2024 marks the tenth edition of the artistic residencies co-produced by the festival and the Auditorio de Tenerife. Excavación (Excavation) draws on a format linked to the arts of movement. It is a multidisciplinary project where acrobatics on a vertical bar (pole dance) and contemporary dance, motion capture, lighting design, musical creation, and sound design are combined and interwoven. Over an intensely creative week, the residency provides an open and vibrant process.

NUMAcircuit defines itself as a collective platform for the creation and dissemination of new forms of artistic expression to offer a space and audience for artistic initiatives that are engaged with forms of contemporary creation, encouraging the emergence of projects and collaboration, and nurturing the critical judgement of an audience that is interested in avant-garde artistic approaches. You can find all the updated information on the festival on the website.

The tickets are available 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 02:00 p.m. There are discounts for students, unemployed and large families.

15 shows will take place at the Auditorio de Tenerife, Espacio La Granja, Teatro Guimerá, the Museo de Bellas Artes (Fine Arts) and several outdoor locations

 

The Tenerife Island Council has announced the 14th edition of the Arts and Movement Festival (FAM), an initiative promoted by the Auditorio de Tenerife. Details were provided by José Carlos Acha, who is the regional Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Culture of the Island Council of Tenerife, Cristóbal de la Rosa, who is the General Director of Cultural Innovation and Creative Industries, and José Luis Rivero, the Artistic Director of the Auditorio de Tenerife.

The scheduled companies constitute a varied sample of talented Spanish dance artists, such as Sharon Fridman, Poliana Lima, Reinaldo Ribero, Mucha Muchacha, Marcia Vázquez, Elías Aguirre, Luz Arcas de La Phármaco, Qabalum, Lucía Montes y Mado Dallery, Richard Mascherin, Ertza, La Veronal de Marcos Morau, and Kor'sia.

José Carlos Acha explained that "between 1 and 9 June, Santa Cruz will see 18 performances of 15 dance shows of 13 companies. The performances will take place at Espacio La Granja, Teatro Guimerá, Museo de Bellas Artes (Fine Arts), the Auditorio de Tenerife and several outdoor locations in Santa Cruz".

The regional minister added that "The programme includes large-scale theatrical performances, outdoor solo performances, award-winning duets, interdisciplinary pieces and many more acts in different formats and offering different concepts that go from reflections on the passing of time to representations of the gravitational effect on bodies, all interpreted through the lens of contemporary dance". Acha went on to say, "We must continue offering dance at the institutional level, and the FAM is helping to achieve that goal".

Cristóbal de la Rosa recalled that the festival's beginnings "started with the Auditorio de Tenerife and José Luis Rivero as a bold decision taken in the wake of the 2011 crisis brought on by the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy". "We are grateful for the Tenerife Island Council's backing of contemporary dance and for the receptiveness of other public administrations". Explaining what he considers a necessity, De la Rosa went on to say, "In the Canary Islands, we must continue offering dance, and those in charge of programming must be adventurous to give these kinds of festivals a footing, to reach youth and to create a supporting community".

José Luis Rivero pointed out that "without the FAM, collaboration among institutions would be impossible. In our case, the implication is even greater, as the shows are jointly directed with the technical staff of the venues". This programme is highly representative of the domestic dance scene, with a combination of prestigious choreographers, from the internationally acclaimed Marcos Morau to Poliana Lima, along with other emerging artists in smaller formats, in addition to regional artists, of course". He also stressed the importance of affordable prices, "with tickets at eight euros and a wide range of discounts offered".

The Canary Islands Government collaborates with the festival through the Regional Institute of Cultural Development, the Autonomous Department of Cultural Affairs of the City Council of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and the programme "Danza a Escena", which is part of the Spanish Network of Theatres of the National Institute of Performing Arts and Music (INAEM) of Spain's Ministry of Culture.

The festival will kick off on Saturday, 1 June, with Go Figure, performed by the Sharon Fridman Company at Espacio La Granja at 8:00 p.m. At the same venue, on Sunday, 2 June, the Poliana Lima Company will interpret The Common Ground at 7:30 p.m. The scheduled performance for Monday, 3 June, is NO/MAS/SACRE, a duet directed by Reinaldo Ribeiro, to take place onstage at La Granja at 8:00 p.m. The programme for the following day at 8:00 p.m. features the first large-format performance of Mucha Muchacha, interpreted by the eponymous company.

Wednesday, 5 June, the solo artist Marcia Vázquez will offer an outdoor performance of Onde pousa a humidade at 5:30 p.m. in Plaza del Príncipe and at 7:30 p.m. outside Espacio La Granja. Also scheduled for that day is This is Alfred, interpreted by Elías Aguirre with double bassist Jorge da Rocha at 6:00 p.m. at the Museum of Fine Arts. At Espacio La Granja at 8:00 p.m., Oro negro will be performed by the Poliana Lima Company. On Thursday, 6 June, Luz Arcas and her company La Phármaco will offer the public the live-music show Mariana at the Teatro Guimerá at 8:00 p.m.

The programme continues outdoors on Friday, 7 June, with the duet performance La medida que nos ha de dividir interpreted by the Qabalum Company at 6:00 p.m. in Plaza del Príncipe and at 8:30 p.m. outside the Teatro Guimerá. For a different experience, Vacío espiritual will be performed by Richard Mascherin in Plaza del Chicharro at 7:00 p.m., and an hour later, a duet performance of Otempodiz will be offered by the Ertza Company outside the Teatro Guimerá.

On Thursday this week, the baroque music ensemble El Afecto Ilustrado joins video-creator Pedro Chamizo in this experience.

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife presents Música controversia, an unusual concert that unites baroque music with the visual arts. This Thursday (the 16th), at 7.30 p.m., the Chamber Hall welcomes a ‘cockfight’ by the historically informed ensemble El Afecto Ilustrado, which will merge with the live work of the video-creator Pedro Chamizo. The programme consists of Harmonia artificioso ariosa by the Austro-Bohemian composer Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber (1644-1704).

With Música controversia, El Afecto Ilustrado provides a musical battle on a white canvas that the performers are a part of. The visual artist includes them as characters who feel, converse, argue, disagree, and agree. The present on the visual ring is like a space for debate that brings the Central European reality of the 17th century face to face with the Canarian reality of the 21st century. It also reflects 17th-century sound transported into the 21st century through the images.

1696 was the year of birth of one of the most sophisticated works in the chamber music production of Biber (1644-1704), who created at the end of the 17th century a collection of seven scores created in the form of a trio of sonatas, which are defined by their spectacular technique. But above all, by the exquisite use of scordatura, or the different form of tuning the two solo violins, which makes it possible to achieve a sonorous imagination and a textual range that are impossible using the traditional tuning of concert instruments. The album Harmonia artificioso ariosa: diversi modi accordata marked a significant advance in violin technique and in the expressive and rhetorical capacity of music. 

The concertmaster and director of El Afecto Ilustrado, Adrián Linares and Pablo Gutiérrez, who have an outstanding career with this instrument, will perform this peculiar battle with their violins. Carlos Oramas completes the ensemble on the theorbo, Ramiro Morales on the archlute, Diego Pérez on the cello, Francisco Aguiló Matas on the violone and Raquel García on the organ. Founded in 2012, El Afecto Ilustrado is a Spanish ensemble with a historicist profile whose philosophy is about presenting and bringing the audience into contact with a historically informed performance of the repertoire encompassed between the first baroque and early romantic period in a close and tangible way. 

The Mérida-born Pedro Chamizo has a degree in Drama from the University of Kent at Canterbury, specialising in acting and directing. He works as a videomaker, stage director, lighting designer, graphic designer and producer. Awarded for his entrepreneurial skills with the Ceres Youth Prize at the Mérida Festival, the Auditorio de Tenerife witnessed his work as a video designer last October in the opera María Moliner (Antoni Parera Fons) under the direction of Paco Azorín. 

The tickets can be purchased at a single price of €15 and 5 for under 30s 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 discounts for students, unemployed and large families.

Christian Vásquez leads the orchestra this Friday in an event with the composer Leo Rondón as cuatrista soloist.

 

This week's programme of the Sinfónica de Tenerife pays tribute to Latin American music with its premiere performances of works by Gabriela Ortiz and Leo Rondón, the latter interpreting his composition Concierto del mar para cuatro venezolano y orquesta. (Concert of the Sea for Venezuelan cuatro and orchestra). In addition, the orchestra will interpret compositions of Evencio Castellanos and Alberto Ginastera under the direction of conductor Christian Vásquez. The event is to take place on Friday (17th), starting at 7:30 p.m. in the Auditorio de Tenerife.

The evening's activities are to start with the orchestra's premiere performance of Antrópolis. The short piece, written by the Mexican composer Gabriela Ortiz in 2019, pays homage to the nightclubs of her hometown Mexico City and includes sounds from these popular establishments known as antros. After an invigorating timbales solo, the music continues with a cascade of the rhythms that give life to the night-time entertainment scene of the Mexican capital.

The next performance will be the orchestra's first interpretation of Concierto del mar. This work was composed in 2022 by Leo Rondón, who will join the orchestra as a soloist playing the Venezuelan Cuatro, an instrument that is deeply rooted in the Caribbean nation's folklore. During their interpretation, the musicians will make use of different performance techniques in their exploration of rhythms such as merengue, parranda, waltz and joropo.

During the second half of the concert, the orchestra will interpret Santa Cruz de Pacairigua, written by the Venezuelan composer Evencio Castellanos, who premiered the work 70 years ago at the Caracas Cathedral in a dedicatory act celebrating the construction of a new church in Guatire. The work is infused with passionate lyricism and popular rhythms and also bears the influence of other, more academic types of music and even medieval villancicos.

The programme concludes with Estancia: Cuatro danzas, op. 8a by Alberto Ginastera. Composed in 1941, the work reflects a highly personal approach that combines elements of nationalism and modernism. The composer's works are largely based on different types of folklore from his native Argentina and feature a variety of vibrant rhythms.

Christian Vásquez is currently the conductor of the Juan Jose Landaeta Orchestra, one of several of Venezuela's orchestras for children and youth. Prior to this position, he was the musical director of the Symphonic Orchestra Teresa Carreño of Venezuela; chief guest conductor of the Gävle Symphony Orchestra; main conductor of the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra and chief guest conductor of the Het Gelders Orkest.

Leo Rondón is a Cuatro player, guitarist, double bassist, composer, arranger and the producer of Ávila Quartet, whose members interpret Venezuelan music. He also performs as a Cuatro player with Ensemble L’Arpeggiata, Alexis Cárdenas and Recoveco, Venezuelan Roots and Joropo Jam, in addition to his solo performances in which he is billed as the Leo Rondón Project.

Rondón has performed in many concert halls and international music festivals in Venezuela, Colombia, Portugal, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Sweden, United Kingdom, Belgium, Holland, Kazakhstan and Morocco.

In Spain, he has worked with the Real Filharmonía de Galicia, Orquesta Filarmónica de Málaga, Orquesta Sinfónica de Navarra, Orquesta de Valencia, Orquesta Filarmónica de Gran Canaria, or Sinfónica de Castilla y León, and has also performed with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Arctic Philharmonic, Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Sinfónica Nacional de Colombia, New World Symphony or the Orchestre National du Pays de la Loire.

The Tenerife Association for Friends of Music offers a new lecture as part of its series of pre-concert conferences. Sergio Rodríguez González will develop the musical intricacies of the four pieces included in the programme in the Sala Avenida of the Auditorio de Tenerife, starting at 6:30 pm.

The tickets for this concert can be purchased until the day of the event 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.

Auditorio de Tenerife recibe del 13 al 31 de mayo  la residencia artística Phantom, de Darío Bardam(expectuando los días 16, 17, 18 y 19). La muestra abierta al público tendrá lugar el miércoles 29 a las 19:30 horas en la Sala Castillo.

Phantom es el título de una investigación que se centra en la relación de la figura del fantasma y políticas de desidentificación, siguiendo las líneas de trabajo de los proyectos Seguir moviendo y Es un no parar, en los que se estudian los catalizadores de una danza que rebasa el cuerpo que la baila (ritmo, repetición, feedback, archivo, mirada y voz, entre otros).

Jugando con diferentes beats y melodías producidos por sintetizadores, voces y sonidos analógicos junto con un DJ set, Darío Dardam (Darío Barreto Damas), junto con las artistas colaboradoras, pasarán tiempo en la intersección de la danza y la música, construyendo un cuerpo fantasma que se desvanece, dando espacio para que todo baile. En el trasfondo de toda la investigación, el placer de bailar desempeña un papel fundamental.

Esta residencia supone un espacio de diálogo para compartir y reflexionar de manera colectiva a partir de un punto de partida inicial propuesto por Darío Barreto Damas, que puede o no resultar en una pieza escénica.

Darío Bardam

Darío Barreto Damas es un bailarín canario que trabaja simultáneamente en Tenerife, Skopje, Sofía y Estocolmo. Su trabajo artístico gira en torno a la danza como forma autónoma de conocimiento y las prácticas de desidentificación como mecanismos de mediación.

Se ha formado en Teatro Victoria (Tenerife), Institut del Teatre (Barcelona), DOCH Escuela de Danza y Circo (Estocolmo) y JLU Universiad de Giessen (Alemania). Darío ha trabajado como bailarín, co-creador y colaborador con Deborah Hay, Cristina Caprioli, Ofelia Jarl Ortega, Aleksandar Georgiev, Philip Berlin y Poliana Lima, entre otras.

Sus últimos trabajos, Seguir moviendo y Es un no parar, creados como un díptico, utilizan las materialidades del ritmo, la repetición, el feedback, el archivo, la mirada y la voz como generadores para bailar una danza que reclama su propia supervivencia al jugar con su potencial para ser experienciada como un fenómeno en constante cambio, que puede coexistir con otras formas artísticas sin someterse a ellas.

Darío es cofundador del proyecto institución ICC (Imaginative Choreographic Center) y del equipo artístico STEAM ROOM, co-director del LAV Laboratorio de Artes vivas y Ciudadanía y miembro de la asociación de Artistas del Movimiento PiedeBase (Canarias), la organización Lokomotiva (Macedonia) y la red NOMAD Dance Academy (Balcanes).

The orchestra ends its performance 'Abemón: Cuando el agua suena' with a family concert this Saturday.

 

More than 2,500 schoolchildren enjoyed the two concerts that the Sinfónica de Tenerife offers in the show Abemón: Cuando el agua suena (Abemón, the sound of water), an original idea by Ana Hernández Sanchiz. Ignacio García Vidal provided musical direction. The piece involves different Community Dance groups, with Antonio Quiles providing stage and choreographic direction. This week's orchestra's activity concludes on Saturday (11th) at noon with a concert for families with children over nine.

The premiere of Abemón: Cuando el agua suena took place today (Thursday 9) and was attended by 1,344 schoolchildren from 19 schools from the municipalities of La Laguna, Santa Cruz, Güímar, El Tanque, Granadilla, La Orotava, Los Realejos, Puerto de la Cruz, San Miguel and Tacoronte. 

The regional minister of Culture, José Carlos Acha, attended this first event and "thanked the school's effort to access this proposal of the Sinfónica de Tenerife. This show is special for us given its inclusive nature and the active participation of different groups".

Acha points out, "The orchestra dedicates several weeks of its season to social work to bring classical music closer to those who do not normally attend the subscription concerts, such as educational concerts and those that the orchestra performs in the social and health centres of the island."

Abemón means water in the aboriginal language of the Canary Islands, and it is precisely the liquid element that will be the guiding thread of this programme with which the orchestra, its spaces, its members and its music will become a meeting point to encourage the choreographic and scenic creation of people with different abilities. 

The show blends the musical selection with contemporary dance, whose vision of bodies and movement is inherently inclusive and aims to provide everyone with a creative space and voice. The selected works are Water Music: Suite No. 1 in F major, HWV 348 by Handel; The Enchanted Lake, op. 62 by Lyadov; Une barque sur l'océan by Ravel; and Britten's work Peter Grimes: Four Sea Interludes, op. 33a.

Abemón: Cuando el agua suena (Abemón: the sound of water) has had prior working sessions with the organisation of dance workshops held last week involving people with functional diversity and students from the schools Escuelas Pías and Benito Pérez Armas, San Benito, Tacoronte-Oscar Domínguez and Tegueste.

One thousand four hundred eighty-five schoolchildren from 24 schools in the municipalities of La Laguna, Santa Cruz, Güímar, La Orotava, Arona, Arico, El Rosario, Garachico, Granadilla, La Matanza, Tacoronte, and Tegueste will attend tomorrow's concert.

Abemón: Cuando el agua suena marks the end of the educational offer organised by the Sinfónica de Tenerife during the 2023-2024 season. The activities began in November with El Circo de Don Nicanor and continued with Cuentan las Voces in February.

The tickets for this Saturday's family concert can be purchased at the price of 5 euros on the website www.sinfonicadetenerife.es, at the Auditorio de Tenerife'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.

A dozen composition students premiere their works on Saturday.

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife hosts a concert on Saturday (11th) with composition premieres by the students of the Higher Music Conservatory of the Canary Islands. Several musicians—pupils and teachers—will perform the works of young musical authors. Admission is free until the hall reaches its maximum capacity, which starts at 6:00 p.m. in the Chamber Hall.

The programme for this concert features ten works composed by students. Las ondas del agua (The waves of water) will be the first piece performed. It was created by the young student Óscar García for a string orchestra. The composition strives to reflect the eternal cycle of water, from its stillness to its movement and eventual return to calm. 

Sergio Rodríguez has composed African Sunshine for piano and a string quintet. Initially, it was created solely for piano; subsequently, it was adapted for a string section and piano. It takes inspiration from the famous jazz standard African flower and focuses on developing this idea while taking a closer approach to the music scene. 

Building a Minimal World by Basilio Gómez will be the third work to premiere in the Chamber Hall. The composer created a small work with a minimalist aesthetic for piano four hands last year for a commission by Leuven Public Library (Belgium). 

On Saturday, Josué Palancares will offer a performance of the song Fantasía corrupta, a composition for flute, trombone, and piano. Inspired by traditional and contemporary Japanese music, the author aims to evoke the changes that dreams and hopes can trigger in how we perceive our daily lives.

Jorge Guerrero has composed the work Sonatina en Re M (Sonatina in D minor) over the course of the year. It is inspired by the classic sonata form, prioritising the melody, clarity of the structure, and harmonic discourse.

The following works are Aguardo and Mantra. The first, once again created by Basilio Gómez, is a solo flute piece. This work aims to draw on suspense to subsequently create a musical discourse that showcases the flute's sound, beauty, and timbrical possibilities. Mantra, on the other hand, is the piece by Candelaria María Dorta for oboe. The eighth work of the evening is Ecos for solo flute by Julio César Rodríguez.  

The last two compositions to be performed in the Chamber Hall of the Auditorio de Tenerife are Tu luz me deslumbra (Dazzled by your light) for solo timple (a five-string Canary Island guitar) by Adrián Oliva and Dubitaciones (Hesitations) for woodwind quartet by Felipe Hernández. The composer performs the first work and uses the timple to conjure sensations in the audience. The last piece explores the lack of definition, straddled between the tonal and atonal, calm and unease, and lightness and darkness.
