"Felicidades por el trabajo de promocionar tanta música latinoamericana por descubrir para muchos.”
La serie de videos educativos producidos por SOLA tiene como objetivo crear un registro audiovisual sobre los creadores, intérpretes y protagonistas de la música latinoamericana para ayudar a proyectar las identidades musicales latinoamericanas más allá de las fronteras de sus países. En esta serie de videos, es posible percibir la importancia y riqueza del panorama musical latinoamericano a través de las palabras de artistas como la compositora mexicana María Granillo, el compositor venezolano-estadounidense Ricardo Lorenz, el violonchelista colombiano Santiago Cañón Valencia, el violonchelista mexicano Álvaro Bitrán y American Christine Walevska, violonchelista y protegida de Ennio Bolognini.
Venezuelan composer and cellist Paul Desenne shares his thoughts about his works for cello including Jaguar Songs and Pizziquitiplás. In a talk with cellists Germán Marcano and Tulio Rondón, Maestro Desenne discusses his vision of how Venezuelan and Latin American folk music interact in his own works, as well as how his process of composing for cello is different from composing for any other instrument.
Mexican composer Horacio Fernández and American cellist and international soloist Zlatomir Fung speak about their collaboration for a new cello concerto inspired on Latin American Cumbia. They discuss the dynamics of the collaboration, including aspects of cello technique, cultural influences of urban popular Latin American genres and the mutual impact that this collaboration has had on them.
World-renowned soloist American cellist Christine Walewska shares her experience as a lifelong friend and protege of Argentinean-American cellist Ennio Bolognini. Walevska speaks about her musical relationship with Argentina, including her relationships with composers José Bragato, Julian Aguirre, and Washington Castro; her family’s friendship with the Bologninis, the acclaim that Bolognini had from such distinguished cellists and Casals, Feuermann, and Piatigorksy, and her experience performing Bolognini’s works for cello solo.
Join us as we pay homage to Juan Orrego-Salas, alongside two of his students: Ricardo Lorenz and Pablo Mahave-Veglia, in addition to our very own, Germán Marcano.
