This Sunday's concert feature El Salvador, San Sebastián, and Igueste de Candelaria bands


The Chamber Hall of the Auditorio de Tenerife will be the venue this Sunday [28th], at 11:30 a.m., for a new concert of the Primavera Musical cycle. On this occasion, the wind bands Agrupación Musical El Salvador (La Matanza), the Asociación Cultural San Sebastián (Tejina, La Laguna), and the Agrupación Musical Nueva Banda from Igueste de Candelaria are playing.

The band from La Matanza was founded in 1850 and will perform under the direction of Ismael Jesús Brajín González. They will offer a repertoire that starts with Acentejo, by José Luis Peiró, followed by Fate of the Gods, by Steve Reinek. They will conclude with Malagueña, by Agrícola Álvarez, with arrangements by Pedro Izquierdo and Sergio Rodríguez. Pedro Izquierdo will perform as a soloist on this piece.

The cultural association Asociación Cultural San Sebastián was founded in 1927, and its music band is presented in this new edition of Primavera Musical with a programme under the direction of Raiko Cruz González. They will start with the pasodoble Las Arenas, by Manuel Morales Martínez, continue with Eternal Vibrations, by Saül Gómez Soler, and the symphonic poem Coliseum, by Hugo Chinesta.

Luis Porfirio Torres Oliva will lead this new band of Igueste de Candelaria during the performance at the Auditorio de Tenerife. The three pieces Havana Blues, by Chico O'Farrill, Café sin leche, by Claudio Roditi, and La Rebelión, by Joe Arroyo, will close the musical day at the Auditorio de Tenerife.

The Primavera Musical cycle started in 2005 as an initiative of the federation 'Federación Tinerfeña de Bandas de Música' with the collaboration of the Tenerife Island Council. This activity aims to promote and disseminate the work done by the wind bands throughout the year in different municipalities. Thus, all 36 ensembles that make up the federation offer a concert in the Chamber Hall of the Auditorio de Tenerife. Twenty-four bands have already taken part in this year's festival, which began in March.
