This Sunday [5th], at 11:30 a.m., the event will feature the band of the island Federación Tinerfeña.


On Sunday, 5 March, at 11:30 am, the Auditorio de Tenerife hosts the opening concert of another edition of the "Primavera Musical" cycle, organised since 2005 by the federation 'Federación Tinerfeña de Bandas de Música' with the collaboration of the Tenerife Island Council.

The federation's own ensemble, which is made up of different band members from the island, will play a leading role in this event, conducted by Juan Antonio Rancel Tejera and narrated by Moisés Évora de la Rosa.

The 'Federación Tinerfeña de Bandas de Música' will perform Symphony No. 1 The Lord of the Rings by Johan de Meij (Voorbuj, The Netherlands 1953). This composition, based on Tolkien's novels, was the first piece the composer created for a wind orchestra, and he won the Sudler Composition Prize (1989) with it. Through the melodies played by the wind orchestra, basic characters of the story created by Tolkien are depicted.

The 'Federación Tinerfeña de Bandas de Música' is made up of 36 groups belonging to twenty-seven municipalities of the island. All the groups take part in the dozen concerts of this new edition of Primavera Musical, which will last until 18th June.
