Program April 29. Quintet of wind metal “Palma Brass”

Original repertoire for quintet of wind metal from baroque to jazz.
Works by Handel, Barnes, Fauré, Cebrian, Crespo, Paquito de Rivera and Pollack.

The first concert of the Sinestèsies cycle is an innovative proposal for a quintet of metals. This type of training allows us to go deep into the art of the 20th century and the diversity of languages ​​that it explores. Es Baluard has a good representation through the works of great contemporary masters such as Miró, Picasso, Abramovic or Horn. The route goes through an introduction that starts from the musical baroque and leads us to the most current forms of jazz.
Program May 6. String quartet

Quartet by Mozart n387 (Spring Quartet)
Tchaikovsky Quartet No. 1

Classicism and romanticism. Mozart and Txaikosvy. All the arts, music, but also the pictorial arts evolve in the thesis-antithesis confrontation. This is a good example of the Es Baluard landscaping room that evokes both tendencies through the work of Anckerman, Ribas, Rossinyol and Mir, among others.

Program May 13. Lluís Vives wind Quintet

  • Quintet op. 43. by Carl Nielssen
  • Five Dreams by Henry Tomassi
  • Seven Balkan Dances by MarkoTejcevic

In the last annual session, the theme of the program is based mainly on the dance and the sense of the body’s movement in the arts, from what is transdisciplinary or from the inspiration it shows. Thus, the selection of the “Seven Balkan Dances” by the Serbo-Croatian composer MarkoTajcevic as “Five dances (profane and sacred)” by Frenchman Henri Tomasi shows us a journey through Balkan music, with a contemporary language but with a very formal structure and writing. The pieces of Henri Tomasi bring us a more avant-garde and daring expression, with more modern resources, but without losing communication with the listener.
Dance has as its main expression tool the body, which opens up many possibilities in contemporary art practices. From Es Baluard we aim to value work from the body through different educational programs. During the 2017-2018 academic year, “Body and gender: transversal projects based on contemporary art” and the Adult program “The art of action in the second half of the 20th century” stand out.
