Tenerife Symphony Orchestra unveils new season
Tenerife Symphony Orchestra’s new season will offer a balance between tradition and modernity.
This will be the second season under the director Antonio Méndez and will run from September 13th to June 26th with 19 concerts that will cover 50 compositions from different eras.
President of Tenerife Cabildo, Carlos Alonso, the director of Culture José Luis Rivero and the director of the OST unveiled what the public will find in the Symphony Hall of the Auditorium of Tenerife and in other spaces.
“If last season had as a novelty the arrival of Antonio Méndez, this year we can say that the director has consolidated the Symphony with a great job,” said Sr. Alonso. “The choral programme is in line with the artistic work of the Auditorium. I invite everyone to discover the orchestra.”.
The orchestra will perform works that have never been played and there will be two world premieres with a Canarian flavour with the compositions of the Tenerifens Rubens Askenar (elected in the joint call of the SGAE Foundation and the Spanish Association of Symphonic Orchestras) and Gustavo Trujillo.
“We also recovered the symphonic-choral world, which on the island has a lot of importance,” said Sr. Rivero, with choirs here and two other guests: the Cor de Cambra of the Palau de la Música Catalana de Barcelona and the Community of Madrid Choir.
The island director highlighted the educational and social programmes that distribute music throughout the island, in addition to the chamber cycles and the sustaining role of the Symphony with respect to Ópera de Tenerife. He stressed, in turn, that there are 124 young people who have the Youth Pass.
Sr. Méndez said one of the most special programmes of the season will be with German romanticism. He also highlighted the great masters who will debut with the OST as well as the participation of the violinist Veronika Eberle, artist in residence, who will be present in three programmes, in one of them also as director. In short, a great symphonic year.
