    Federico II de Prusia (1712-1786), mecenas de las artes
    28:14JANUARY 27, 2017

    Frederick the Great was much more than a music-loving king. His reformist program included legal, social, educative and military facets. But there was also room for patronage of the arts, in particular architecture and town planning. In this presentation, Javier Barón details the Prussian king’s activity as a patron.

    Aleksandr Scriabin: Preludes
    1:13:59NOVEMBER 16, 2016

    Alexander Scriabin’s output is marked by the phenomenon of synaesthesia. According to the composer (influenced by Schopenhauer, Nietzsche and, especially, theosophical mysticism), the mission of art was to help to awaken a new religious consciousness. In particular, sounds, colours and aromas should converge to generate a mystic experience. The lighting design of this concert, based on the correspondences between notes and colours described by the composer, bathes the whole auditorium and aims to reconstruct Scriabin’s sinaesthetic vision.

    Franz Schubert: "Andante un poco mosso", from Trio No. 2 in E flat major Op. 100 D 929
    8:50OCTOBER 26, 2016

    Schubert’s Piano Trio in E-flat major is one of the longest in music history. Its slow movement is based on a Swedish song of a popular nature that the composer became familiar with in an arrangement. This song, which is about loss and separation, plays with evocative modal elements with nostalgic affects that Schubert incorporated into his composition.

    Opéra de salon
    4:08JANUARY 9, 2017

    A salon opera composed for piano and four voices in 1831, Le cinesi refers to the fascination that Europeans have had for Oriental culture for centuries. A Chinese-inspired aesthetic impregnates the entire production, from the furniture and the costumes to characterization and body language.

    Chamber Music Theatre (2014-2017)
    0:51FEBRUARY 12, 2014

    In 2014 the Fundación Juan March launched the series Chamber Music Theatre, which was soon joined by the Teatro de la Zarzuela. The intention of the series was to defend an important repertory of stage music whose characteristics (small-scale works involving only a few performers) mean it is rarely performed in conventional theatres. In its first four years, nine works have been performed, several of them unpublished, which reveal connections and links between the works and their composers. Apart from teacher-pupil relationships (between Rimsky-Korsakov and Stravinsky) and family ties (between García y Viardot), the series has covered the continued existence of a genre like the tonadilla (Trilogía de tonadillas and El pelele), the French influence on Spanish theatre (Une éducation manquée and Los dos ciegos) and the neoclassical aesthetic of the twentieth century (Fantochines, Mavra and El pelele); a history of marginalised and invisible chamber music theatre, which this project seeks to revive.

    Óscar Escudero: Big Data, fromCustom #3
    9:14DECEMBER 7, 2016

     “Big data” forms part of the cycle Custom #3, a series of pieces by Óscar Escudero in which the performers’ customisation plays an important role. Violoncello, piano, electroacoustics and video are combined with unique precision in a piece that invites us to reflect on Walter Benjamin’s concept of “aura”, questioning the originality and uniqueness of a work of art, as well as the demise of this concept when it is mechanically reproduced.

    Raf Mur Ros: Empty Rooms, from [Holy Array]

    9:08DECEMBER 7, 2016

    In “Empty Rooms”, the first work in the cycle [Holy Array], Raf Mur Ros explores the impossibility of the existence of absolute silence. The point of departure for the piece is the recording of three different and intimate areas of “silence” in the composer’s life: his bedroom, his study and a sound laboratory. Based on the analysis of the small disturbances that make the existence of total silence impossible, temporal and electronic lines are generated that are combined with these three realms of relative silence. A third material, electronic and sinusoidal, is then added, which penetrates into space in the form of sub-bass vibration, on the thresholds of human hearing.
