The ensembles San Sebastián, Nueva Unión and Princesa Yaiza open a new edition this Sunday.


The Auditorio de Tenerife offers this Sunday (10), at 11:30 a.m., at the Chamber Hall, the first concert of the different ensemble members of the island's wind band federation that participate in a new edition of the Primavera Musical cycle. The wind ensembles taking part in this first concert are San Sebastián (Tejina, La Laguna), Nueva Unión (Los Silos) and Princesa Yaiza (El Rosario).

The concert band San Sebastián and its conductor Raiko Cruz have prepared three pieces from their repertoire for this concert. Their performance begins with the Parade of the Charioteers, from the movie Ben Hur, composed by Miklós Rózsa and adapted with arrangements by Miguel González. La sombra del peregrino, by José Luis Peiró Reig, and Latin gold, with arrangements by Paul Lavender, complete the presence in the Chamber Hall of this ensemble, which has its origins in 1927.

The wind band Nueva Unión from Los Silos will perform three pieces in the Auditorio in a very special edition as part of its 125 years of history: Teatro Montecarlo, by Aurelio Pérez Perelló, El Racó de L'or, by Saúl Gomez Soler, and Caravan, by Duke Ellington/Juan Tizol, with arrangements by Naohiro Iwai, conducted by Juana María Bolaños.

The Sunday concert will be completed with a performance by the band Asociación Princesa Yaiza from El Rosario under the direction of Juan Antonio Rancel. From their repertoire, they have selected Música y vinos by Manuel Morales, The Witch and the Saint by Steven Reineke and Sir Duke, with arrangement by Naohiro Iwai.

The 'Primavera Musical cycle has been organised by the wind bands federation 'Federación Tinerfeña de Bandas de Música' since 2005 with the support of Tenerife Island Council. As part of this campaign, the public can listen to the 37 bands that make up the association from this Sunday until 9 June in the Auditorio de Tenerife's Chamber Hall.
