Kim Brandstrup's new work is called Rushes: Fragments of a Lost Story, so perhaps it's churlish to complain that this fractured story is confusing. The real trouble is that it lacks drama.

O Istituto Italiano di Cultura de São Paulo traz a Orchestra d’Archi Italiana

O Istituto Italiano di Cultura de São Paulo traz a Orchestra d’Archi Italiana com o solista e diretor Mario Brunello (violoncelo) para um concerto no Memorial da América Latina, dia 7 de maio, quarta-feira, às 21hs. Grátis!

Antes a orquestra realizará um concerto no dia 3 de maio, às 20hs, no Theatro da Paz, em Belém do Pará.

A Orchestra d’Archi Italiana é jovem e estuda a tradição clássica com profissionalismo, ao mesmo tempo que mostra uma sensibilidade na expressão da musicalidade atual. Esta jovem orquestra tem a regência do maestro Brunello, um grande expoente do panorama musical italiano contemporâneo. “Esse regente tem uma grande sensibilidade em reunir compositores contemporâneos como V. Capossela bem como os clássicos, e justamente, por saber valorizar os do passado e compreender o presente,” comenta Luigina Peddi, diretora do Istituto Italiano di Cultura de São Paulo.

SIR HARRISON BIRTWISTLE AND THE MINOTAUR

The beast within Hairy chords, blood smoothies, and 'a bit of Boris' - Sir Harrison Birtwistle talks to Tom Service about his new opera, The Minotaur Friday April 11, 2008 The Guardian
'It's like this, look." Sir Harrison Birtwistle is explaining the origin of his opera The Minotaur, which premieres on Tuesday at the Royal Opera House, and he points to a Picasso print on the wall of his living room in his Wiltshire home. It's an image of the Minotaur's death, in which the final agonies of the half-bull, half-man are ogled by a small crowd of spectators. The drawing inverts the children's storybook idea of the Minotaur myth, that the beast represents pure, rapacious evil. Picasso invites us to share the Minotaur's pain, to see him as human as well as monstrous.

Naturally this month's Abu Dhabi music festival at the self-styled 'seven-star' Emirates Palace Hotel wanted the best: the Bolshoi flew in to do Swan Lake, and there was one singer they simply had to have - the hottest diva in the world right now, Anna Netrebko.

SIMON BLECH E AS DANÇAS SINFÔNICAS - RACHMANINOV

Foi a última composição de Serguei Rachmaninov (1873-1943). Sua estréia deu-se com a Orquestra de Filadélfia, sob a regência de Eugene Ormandy, amigo pessoal do compositor, em 1941. Sua estréia, em São Paulo, aconteceu em 1968, com a Orquestra Filarmônica de São Paulo, sob a regência do saudoso maestro argentino, seu regente titular, Simon Blech (1924-1997). Foi no Tuca e eu estava lá. Fã incondicional de Rachmaninov, amei a peça de imediato e saí em busca de uma gravação. Naquela época, como hoje, somente um LP importado, que custava e ainda custa muito caro. Foi na Breno Rossi, elegante casa de discos na rua Barão de Itapetininga, que o encontei. Comprei é claro. Escrevendo estas linhas, veio-me à lembrança que um filho de Simon Blech, então com 19 anos, foi por um período clarinetista da orquestra. Fui procurá-lo na web e encontrei sua página. Há uma bela homenagem a seu pai quando narra sobre um lugar cujo nome em seus últimos momentos de vida, Simon murmurara: USTVARI Simon Blech …
