The concert ˊUna notte d'amoreˊ will take place tomorrow at the Chamber Hall with the mezzo-soprano Cristina Faus


The Auditorio de Tenerife is offering tomorrow (Thursday 22) the concert Una notte d'amore, by the Aede Ensemble with the mezzo-soprano Cristina Faus. The Chamber Hall will welcome this programme at 7.30 p.m., which also includes the Cantata d'amore by David Krivitsky (1937-2010), performed for the first time in Spain after its premiere in Moscow in 1984.

In this concert, the Aede Ensemble proposes a celebration of love, performing different musical miniatures with some of the jewels of love poetry in Spanish interspersed among them. Music and poetry merge to open a window to love in its many facets and forms.

Dutch Renaissance poet Johannes Secundus (1511-1536) wrote his collection of poems in Latin, Basia (Kisses), which in turn inspired several subsequent poets of different origins, such as Sannazaro, Ben Johnson, Meléndez Valdés, and Jean Bonnefons. The first translation into Spanish was done by the pre-Romantic writer and humanist Graciliano Afonso (1775-1861), born in La Orotava. El Beso XVIII (18th Kiss) by Johannes Secundus served as the basis for the composition of the Cantata d'Amore (Love Cantata) by Russian composer David Krivitsky (1937-2010), the central piece of this concert, performed in seven movements by a mezzo-soprano, a narrator, a viola d'amore and a chamber ensemble.

Aede Ensemble is comprised of narrator Ana Hernández Sanchiz, Catherine Mooney and Elisa Bartolomé Gómez on the flutes, Ana Isabel Rodríguez Martín with alto flute, Vladyslava Havryliuk on the English horn, Verónica Cagigao Bautista and Andrea Domínguez de Dios on percussion, Gustavo Díaz-Jerez on harpsichord, organ and piano, the viola player Sviatoslav Belonogov, the violinist Irina Peña Sánchez, David Barrera Suárez on the cello and Iker Sánchez Trueba on the double bass. They are directed by José María de Vicente.
