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
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.
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.
harmony, rhythmic delicacy, and complex piano technique as well as the fine
poems selected demonstrate that he is an academic composer and is well
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.

“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.
The repertoire will be specified by maestro Popescu in
the coming weeks
Guinand (Caracas –
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
