Flamenco Piano by Pablo Rubén Maldonado 12/12/2020

Event information

Considered one of the best pianists in current flamenco, a musician with flamenco roots and a gypsy family, where we can find Antonio Cujón, founder of the Granada zambra, his musical background has been enriched with other styles such as classical music, jazz, Afro-Caribbean, Indian, pop, tango, funk or electronic music, leading him to create his own language: Flamenco on the piano without imitating the guitar.

Program

Beethoven. From darkness to light. Piano by Javier Herguera 12/19/2020

A program full of contrasts, lights and shadows, stormy, warm, human and divine.

Event information

Four of the most representative and beautiful works to honor this colossal revolutionary on the 250th anniversary of his birth.

The two sonatas that open both parts of the concert are the darkest of the entire cycle. With the first symptoms of deafness at the age of 27, Beethoven composed his sonata “Patética”, with an emotional tension that had never been experienced before on the piano. On the contrary, the sonata Op.14 Nº1, from the same period, offers a fresh and luminous vision of Beethoven's imaginative world. In the same way, the two sonatas of the second part of the concert offer us this same omnipresent contrast in Beethoven's life between the light and the darkness of his own existence. The famous "Claro de Luna" sonata begins with one of the saddest movements in history, the result of his relationship with Countess Giuletta Giucciardi, while the Sonata "Los adioses" shows us the most optimistic and joyful Beethoven before his imminent return. of his great friend the Archduke Rudolph of Austria after the occupation of Vienna during the French occupation.

From the very beginning of the history of music, people who were dedicated to this art created melodies, harmonies and musical forms, expressing themselves spontaneously and naturally through improvisation. Over the years this tradition was maintained and developed during different times and periods of history, giving rise to the varied styles and techniques that musicians cultivated and spread throughout the world. It is essential to understand that musicians, composers, interpreters and improvisers were one thing in the past and that the separation and specification of each of them is a modern custom. Absolutely all the great composers including Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, including Liszt, Chopin or Rachmaninov and including keyboard virtuosos like Joseph Hofmann or Vladimir Horowitz as examples, were born improvisers. The true nature of music lay in understanding and making language something of its own, individual and organic. The idea of the program presented is to honor this great lost tradition, with the desire that it be recovered and instilled from the most basic teachings of the modern musician.
