A journey through several centuries of British music is the one that will start a new week on Ceac TV, with the voices of the Camerata Vocal of the University of Chile, directed by the teacher Juan Pablo Villarroel. It will be through a concert offered in July 2018, which will be broadcast from 19:40 on Tuesday, July 14, called “English Music: From the Renaissance to the 20th Century”, in which various styles can be seen musicals that tell the history of the country. The program includes both religious and profane bras, by the most important composers of choral music in England, such as Edward Elgar, William Byrd and Benjamin Britten, among others.


The music will continue with the Cycle of Pianists 2018 and the presentation that the teacher Mario Alarcón gave in October of that year, playing two of most notable Beethoven’s sonatas: Waldstein-Aurora and Apassionatta. The famous works, corresponding to the middle period of the most renowned German composer, will be part of the program which also includes the Sonata op.54, in a concert that will be issued on Wednesday 15,also at 19:40 hours.


As usual, Thursday and Sunday (16 and 19 respectively) From 20:00, it will be the turn of contemporary dance with the Chilean National Ballet and what was the debut in the country of the outstanding English choreographer, Caroline Finn, with La mesa es aún verde.


Presented in 2015, the piece is a nod to the famous work La Mesa Verde, created by the German choreographer, dancer and teacher, Kurt Jooss. 

Finn explained that “the central idea is that it does not matter what time we live in or how society has evolved, because the same mistakes continue to be made.”


With studies at the Tring School of Art Education (England), and later in New York, – where she achieved a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the Juilliard School – Caroline Finn has pursued a successful career which, among other things, It led to her being named Artistic Director of the National Dance Company Wales in 2015.


Meanwhile, on Friday 18 at 7:40 p.m., and Saturday 19 at 9:00 p.m., the music will return with the Chilean National Symphony Orchestra and the debut in the country of the cellist Latvian David Geringas. This is the concert that opened the 2018 season of the ensemble, under the baton of the then principal conductor of the orchestra, maestro Leonid Grin.


. In charge of the interpretation of the Concerto in B minor for cello, op. 104 from Dvorak, The soloist then stated that “it is one of the most important masterpieces for the cello, a very emotional and beautiful music.” He added that “it is autobiographical, in which Dvorak expressed his love story”, a somewhat sad because, while writing this concert, the composer learned of the illness of his sister-in-law, who had been his great love of youth and who later died , without the musician reaching to see her again.


Belonging to the current musical elite, Geringas has been praised for his intellectual rigor, stylistic versatility and melodic sensitivity, among other characteristics. A student of Rostropovich, he has performed all over the world together with prominent orchestras and important conductors.


Meanwhile, the second part of the concert will be marked by the romanticism of the German composer Johannes Brahms and his Symphony No. 4, regarding which the teacher Leonid Grin expressed: “This Symphony is the quintessence of Brahms’ life as a human being and composer, and I think he was expressing his own life journey with more openness. ”


Regarding the contingency and importance of this space, the director of  CEAC, Diego Matte, points out that “it is a complex moment, where we believe it is extremely important to follow the recommendations of the authorities and health specialists, who have been emphatic in suggesting citizens avoid leaving their homes. ” Likewise, it invites the public “to visit, where we have available to all people – openly and free of charge – a large selection of artistic and cultural content. We believe that music and art can help us all cope better with this difficult situation. ”
