The Department of Chamber Music, organism that supports the Symphony Orchestra of the Province of Salta, Argentina, in a new edition of the cycle “Todos al escenario” (“Everyone on stage”), invited the audience to a new meeting called “All Johannes Brahms”, which took place several weeks ago at the Provincial Theater of Salta, with totally free entrance.
The cycle “Everyone on stage” is an initiative carried out by the Department of Chamber Music, an organization attached to the Government of the province of Salta, created in June 2004 for pedagogical purposes. Among the primary objectives of this department are to provide training and development of opportunities for young musicians within the chamber groups, as well as to offer a meeting space between chamber music and the public, in order to promote human and social communication through music.
The concert “Todo Johannes Brahms” was given, in the first place, by the pianist María Fernanda Bruno and the violinist Ángel Martínez Haza with the interpretation of Sonata for piano and violin Nº 1 Op 78 in Sol M, and who will later join the violista Tatyana Larina and the cellist Romina Granata to offer the Quartet for piano and strings Nº 3 Op 60, all of them belonging to the Symphony Orchestra of the Province of Salta.
Johannes Brahms was a German musician, born in Hamburg in 1897, and is considered one of the most outstanding composers in history, equated to Beethoven and Bach, as well as one of the most important representatives of Romanticism in music. His work, unlike that of his contemporaries, does not seek to evoke real images, narrate stories or narrate the lives of characters, mythical or real, but rather pursues theater objectives, such as structure and the technical precision. Thus, his compositions do not include symphonic poems, operas or musical dramas, but works of abstract music.
However, thanks to his exploration of technique, he managed to bring great melodic richness, rhythmic diversity and harmonic complexity to classical music, combining rigor with emotion and bridging Classicism and Romanticism. Schoenberg, Webern, Berg, Britten, Shostakovich, are just some of the great composers who emerged later and who demonstrate in their work the influence of Brahms.
