On Friday, September 16, the opening concert of Fimucité: ‘Kilar – Glass – Navarro’ will be held. A very special concert, as it will be the first time in the history of the festival, that a foreign orchestra travels to Tenerife to perform a symphonic concert.
In this article we bring you more information about this concert, and an exclusive interview conducted by Gorka Oteiza for SoundTrackFest, with the director of Sinfonietta Cracovia orchestra, Agata Grabowiecka.
Among all the events offered by the 16th edition of Fimucité (16 – 25.09.2022), in addition to the highly-expected symphonic concerts at the Tenerife Auditorium on the 23rd and 24th (read more), we would like to highlight the opening concert entitled ‘Kilar – Glass – Navarro’.
This concert, which will take place on Friday, September 16 at the Teatro Leal in La Laguna, will be performed by the Sinfonietta Cracovia conducted by Kasia Tomala, and will include the music of composers Wojciech Kilar, Philip Glass, and Diego Navarro.
Deepening the collaboration that has been uniting for more than a decade the festivals Fimucité in Tenerife and Krakow FMF in Poland, this will be the first time in the history of the festival, that a foreign orchestra travels to Tenerife to perform a symphonic concert.
In the repertoire we will find music by three composers well-known to both audiences, and that, as a musical bridge, strengthen ties between the two festivals: Kilar in Poland and Navarro in Tenerife, making a brief stop in the work of the North American composer Philip Glass.
The concert, which already had a first performance in Poland in May 2022 during the Krakow FMF festival (read more), featured a somewhat different program, which has been adapted for the occasion. This concert is part of the International Tour “Kilar 90” of Sinfonietta Cracovia.
