Classic & Klezmer Workshop + Concert

Classic & Klezmer Workshop

Andorra’s Institute of Music

The workshop is named "CLASSIC & KLEZMER" because it wants to be a sample and a path to the initiation of the klezmer genre from the perspective of the classical musician.

• A first part will be aimed at a brief contextualization of cult music in World War II (most relevant composers, persecuted composers, Jewish culture ...) and in the idea of how music constitutes culture and serves to show its identity .

• Klezmer genre and contemporary Jewish composers who have taken their sonorous features to write current works.

• What is klezmer music special about? Know and work in a participatory and practical way the sonic magic that makes it unique (harmony, own stairs, ornamentation, techniques (gliss, growl - also typical of contemporary music, improvisation).

• Work on expressiveness and creativity, two concepts that define Klezmer and often forgotten in the study of classical music.

CHAMBER MUSIC SEPTETS, OCTETS & NONETS

The Chamber Orchestra of Illa de Menorca is versatile. A show of this adaptability is the ensemble formed by the musicians that make up the chamber music training chosen for this concert and which includes both string and wind instruments. As a carrousel, septets, octets and nonets will be going through the stage that will interpret some of the movements of the most characteristic pieces of chamber: from the construction of time with contrasting subjects of Beethoven, through the long contemplation of the themes of the Schubert's lyrical spirit and reaching more modulating forms such as those of Martinu or Rota. A milestone, that of this concert, is how to bring the audience closer to the small formations of musicians who, without a doubt, will touch the sensibility of more than one spectator.

Programme:

Movements of Beethoven Septet, Schubert Octet, Martinu Nonet, Rota Nonet & Spohr Nonet.

Peter & The Wolf (educative session)

The Chamber Orchestra of Illa de Menorca and the puppet company Per Poc present, in a very special way, the popular symphonic tale Pere i el llop, by Prokofiev. Three spectacular puppets, designed by Roser Capdevila, will revive this well-known tale.

The show consists of two parts: on the one hand, the introduction of the characters, which Per Poc dramatized in a very original way, creating a magical complicity between puppets, musicians, audiences and presenters; On the other, the story, in which the puppets illustrate the actions that the actor tells while the orchestra plays the score.

The project is born from the joint will of the Principal Theater of Maó and the Chamber Orchestra of Illa de Menorca (OCIM), together with the puppet company Per Poc, to bring the world of the stage and classical music to all audiences.
