The programme, 'On pathos’ path: when content exceeds the form', will take place on Tuesday at 7:30 pm



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. Next Tuesday [16] at 7:30 pm it will offer a piano concert by Iván Martín that appeals to our hearts and minds. The programme On pathos’ path: when content exceeds the form will take place in the Chamber Hall and will last 75 minutes. 

The Canary Islands-born pianist explains how Aristotle mentioned pathos in his Rhetoric as a capacity to excite and move listeners, as opposed to logos: pathos’ rational antagonist. This recital proposes a dialogue between these two aspects. It is inspired in composers who were able to transcend the content of the work beyond the form it obeys, who broke the boundaries between creation and audience, who established a new paradigm to create a new musical approach. The programme will feature pieces by Ludwig Van Beethoven, Sergei Prokofiev and Frédéric Chopin. 

Iván Martín was born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria; both reviews and the audience acknowledge him as one of the most brilliant musicians of his generation. He is also a founder member and musical director of the Galdós Ensemble, a new and versatile orchestral group with the aim of performing baroque music and that from the classicism, as well as modern and contemporary music. Iván Martín has been a resident artist at the Gran Canaria Philharmonic Orchestra and at Centro Cultural Miguel Delibes of Valladolid. Since the 2019-2020 season, he is also the chief conductor at Burgos Symphony Orchestra. He collaborates with practically all Spanish and with many other international orchestras. He has recorded several radio and TV-programmes in Spain, France, Italy, Brazil and the United States.
