Workshops at Corearte Río de la Plata


The organization of schedules is often difficult due to the numerous musical commitments of our invited directors; nevertheless, for Corearte Río de la Plata we will have well-known maestros from the choral field.

Singing other repertoires with new singers and being able to assemble pieces with a few hours of rehearsal in a totally new choir is quite an experience. 
We invite you to discover it for yourself.

“INDIANAS”
Santiago Ruiz (Córdoba – Argentina)

The music of Argentinian composer Carlos Guastavino, and especially his INDIANAS, represents a very special compositional synthesis within the Latin American music scene: it is impossible to decide if it is “popular” music or “academic” music. 
Its structure, harmony, rhythmic delicacy, and complex piano technique as well as the fine poems selected demonstrate that he is an academic composer and is well educated. 
However, the expressive simplicity, the lyrics of its melodies, and the formal and rhythmic innuendos permeate all the sounds of a perfume that can only be breathed in the land where the music was written.
Repertoire:  Indianas  - Carlos Guastavino
Gala del día
Quién fuera como el jazmín
Chañarcito, chañarcito
Viento Norte
Al tribunal de tu pecho
Una de dos


THREE URUGUAYAN COMPOSERS” 

Esteban Louise  (Montevideo – Uruguay)

In Uruguay, during the first years of the 20th century, musical nationalism emerged where the work of composer Eduardo Fabini (Lavalleja 1882- Montevideo 1950) is essential, and who brought national music to the top theaters in the world. 
In this workshop about three Uruguayan composers, we will also work on pieces from Luis Cluzeau Mortet (Montevideo 1889-1957) and Héctor Tosar (Montevideo 1923-2002).
It will be a pleasure to get into the work of three excellent composers of 20th century Uruguayan music.
Repertoire:
El Arroyo  - Eduardo Fabini
China Malvada  -  Luis Cluzeau Mortet
Tú estabas como un cedro  -  Héctor Tosar


“MUSIC FOR CHILDREN’S CHOIRS”
Voicu Popescu (Bucharest – Romania)

Children’s choirs are spaces where children share not only repertoire and concerts, but also in learning of all types. 
They learn to read new languages, to be sensitive to their environment, to perceive subtleties, to play with sounds, to meet with new cultures.  Bringing these possibilities to children invites them to discover new worlds, and maestro Popescu will be the one to accompany them on this journey.
Repertoire:
The repertoire will be specified by maestro Popescu in the coming weeks

“SPIRITUALS SELECTION” 
 María Guinand (Caracas – Venezuela)

The music of Spirituals that emerged in the period of slavery of African Americans in the United States is songs that come from a community in need of expressing itself. 
The Christian texts sung by enslaved workers are protest, a way of expressing their faith, ways of sharing joy, of sharing sadness.

Maestra María Guinand brings us a very interesting repertoire to draw us closer to this music which at its essence exists as a collective song, as choral singing.
Repertoire:
I’m gonna sing ‘til the spirit moves in my heart – Moses Hogan
Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel? – arr. Moses Hogan
Gede Nibo - popular Haitiana  - arr. Sten Källman
Shenandoah – arr. James Erb
