Children’s classics in the Solfa la Redonda collection

Posted by Marcel Soleda on April 21, 2009  |  Leave a comment

Two new titles have been added to the Solfa la Redonda collection of CDs for children, which maintains its policy of motivating and encouraging children to get to know classical music, this time counting on the voices of Gonzalo de Castro and Javier Cámara.

These two novelties by Spanish composers, El soldadito de Plomo (The Tin Soldier) by Emilio Aragón and las Fábulas de Lafontaine (La Fontaine’s Fables) by Xavier Benguerel, join the ranks of such notable titles and famous classics in the children’s repertoire as Peter and the Wolf by Prokoviev and the Story of Babar by Francisc Poulenc, already on sale.

The Orquesta de Cadaqués Ensemble plays all the musical parts, conducted this time by Emilio Aragón and Philippe Entremont respectively. The narrative counts on the invaluable cooperation of some of the most versatile actors on the national scene, who took part in this project thrilled by the possibility of addressing such a demanding audience as children: Javier Cámara and Gonzalo de Castro join Tristán Ulloa and Leonor Watling, who have already participated in previous recordings.

El soldadito de Plomo (The Tin Soldier), advance promotion

Posted by Leticia Martin on January 19, 2009  |  1 Comment

El soldadito de plomo, by Emilio Aragón, comes to life thanks to an animation. Just as it did with “La flor mas grande del mundo” (The biggest flower in the world), Continental Producciones has created a short animated film using plasticine, set in the Toy Museum in Allariz (Orense) and where Andersen’s story is told from a new angle.

This animation is fruit of twelve months’ work and 18,000 shots. For the voices of the characters Continental Producciones and Algarabía Animación have chosen actors of the calibre of Manuel Manquiña (the “Cigarrón”) and Luis Piedrahita (the Soldier).

Puss in Boots (El gato con botas) by Xavier Montsalvatge returns to Oviedo

Posted by Leticia Martin on January 5, 2009  |  4 Comments

Puss in Boots by Xavier Montsalvatge returns to the Teatro Philharmonic de Oviedo on the 9 and 10 January in a production realised in 2005 by the Teatro Real de Madrid and co-produced by the Gran Teatro del Liceu, the Asociación Bilbaína de Amigos de la Ópera and the Asociación Asturiana de Amigos de la Ópera. On this occasion it is the version for small orchestra which the composer Albert Guinovart was commissioned to arrange by Tritó Ediciones.

Emilio Sagi’s staging counts on costumes and a set design by Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, which give special colour and impact to the story, winning the hearts of both children and adults. Vicente Alberola is the music director and the main roles will be played by Raquel Lojendio (the Cat), David Menéndez (the Miller), María Luz Martínez (the Princess), Isidro Anaya (the King) and Miguel Angel Zapater (the Ogre).

This score by Xavier Montsalvatge presents the traditional tale by Perrault in the personal style and with the surprising musicality that always characterises this composer’s works.

Albéniz for guitar

Posted by Leticia Martin on December 27, 2008  |  4 Comments

Isaac Albéniz is one of the most emblematic composers of Spanish music of all time and although he never wrote for guitar his music almost immediately aroused the interest of guitarists. The first adaptations for guitar of Albéniz’s music are practically contemporary to the original versions for piano, although there is no doubt that the best known are those realised by Andrés Segovia.

Javier Riba now presents adaptations of some of Albéniz’s masterworks, pieces that have been included in the CD “La guitarra soñada”, which is now being released for the enjoyment of all guitar lovers.

Above all, the guitarist has aimed to respect the style and resources of the guitar of the epoch and the spirit of Albeniz’s piano music.

For the time being, the published works are the following: Evocación and El puerto.

Tirant Lo Blanc, by Antoni Ros Marbà, published by Amalgama

Posted by Marcel Soleda on April 16, 2008  |  Leave a comment

Tirant lo Blanc was composed in 1975 by Antoni Ros-Marbá and Nuria Albó to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Secretariat of “Children’s Choirs of Catalonia”. The work is based on the eponymous chivalrous romance by the Valencian writer Joan Martorell, the first proto-novel published in the West and a key piece in world literature.

The score was written as a cantata for narrator, children’s choir and orchestra and is inspired in some of the best known motifs from the story of “Tirant lo Blanc”. In order to broaden the range of its interpretation and reach among the public and music professionals, Tritó is also publishing a version for chamber orchestra.

Pippi Langstrum, the musical, now in spanish

Posted by Marcel Soleda on January 28, 2008  |  2 Comments

Following its successful release in Catalan, Pippi Lansgtrump, Cuento con canciones, a musical based on the character “Pippi Longstocking”, is now available in Spanish. The Pippi character was invented by Astrid Lindgren in 1941 in order to entertain her 7-year-old daughter who was suffering a lung infection. The first Pippi book was published in 1945 by Rabén & Sjögren, who saw in Pippi’s seditious humour an anecdote for the bleakness of the child’s world in post WWII Europe. Soon the girl with red braids gained international fame, and reached the height of her popularity in the 1970s with her own television series. Pippi still retains her power to charm children round the world today.

This narrated version is based on Lindgren’s adaptation for the stage with music by Georg Riedel, first performed in Spain by the Lazzigags company with Lidia Linuesa in the role of Pippi.
