ALEX ALGUACIL – ROGER PADULLÉS – MONTSERRAT SERÓ

November 28th, 2020 – Ateneu de Barcelona: Recital for the Joan Manen Association. The musical research of the catalan musical heritage means for this Association to constantly search the funds kept by public institutions, but also and above all, to discover treasures hidden in private funds that have not yet come to light and are in the hands of their relatives. With this concert we will discover some of these recently discovered treasures and pay homage to very little-known Catalan musicians whose work has been offered to us by their descendants. We will discover an enigmatic cycle of Santiago Hortensi, songs by the musicologist Miquel Querol, the musical journalist Artur Menéndez Aleixandre, the conductor and professor Joan Pich Santasusana, the pianist Tomàs Buxó and two important teachers of the Barcelona Municipal Conservatory. marriage Margarita Orfila and Frederic Alfonso. The program will complete songs by relatively well-known authors such as Baltasar Samper, Cristòfor Taltabull, Xavier Gols and Mercè Torrents, among others. A unique opportunity to relive the memory of some of the musicians who have contributed to the development of the musical culture of Catalonia during the 20th century.

NEW DATE!!! October 23rd, 2020- Auditori Can Roig i Torres Schnittke, Bartók, Hindemith, Prokofiev: four composers of the twentieth century, four aesthetics, three nationalities, two transcripts and two original works. For our premiere we enter the labyrinth of modern sound. The birth of nationalisms, reactions to romantic expression, the fight against extremist political ideas, the rediscovery of popular music and the indifference of the general public towards the stereotypes of classical music, almost violently promoted new forms of creativity and of acoustic and instrumental research. In the enormous aesthetic and programmatic diversification of the twentieth century, fl auta is once again one of the main instruments due to the ductility of its sound and the possibility of expanding its interpretive techniques.
