3-5 APRIL; Rianxo, GALICIA, ES: Zona da Zanfona




– Zona da Zanfona, o festival internacional de zanfona organizado por aCentral Folque chega a súa XI edición consolidado como un referente internacional no seu ámbito. *

Na súa programación inclúense ofertas variadas e complementarias que van desde o público de veciñas e veciños de Rianxo e a comarca de Arousa e de Barbanza.

Sesións didácticas nas escolas do concello, divulgación do instrumento por medio da publicación de vídeos 10º aniversario, curso para especialistas de interpretación con Tobie Miller, virtuosa e referente mundial no prolífico repertorio barroco para zanfona, sesión de baile comisariado por Óscar Fernández e outros zanfonistas galegos e a presentación da últimas investigacións de Pablo Quintana sobre o pioneiro Amadeo Goyanes, discípulo de Faustino Santalices, conforman a programación da Zona da Zanfona para este ano en Rianxo.

Logo de dez anos, os Encontros Internacionais coa Zanfona seguen a estender os límites conceptuais deste “sintetizador medieval” a territorios compartidos por estéticas posmodernas (drone, acusmática, secuenciación computacional, reducionismo, intervención sonora, improvisación, performance, o loop,…) que conviven coa música popular e universal, coa música coma razón social e encontro humano na percepción abstracta da paisaxe acústica dos nosos días.

Son significativas todas as figuras de renome internacional que teñen pasado por este encontro situando a Galicia no epicentro mundial do instrumento e que marca un presente magnífico para un porvir donde a memoria do instrumento vai gañando cada vez máis espazo desde o rexurdir dos anos 70. aCentral Folque é plataforma activa que aposta e pon e conexión a profesionais, alumnado e luthiers conseguindo desde o 2000 unha renovación esencial para o instrumento.

Zona da Zanfona ten acubillado os máis sobresaíntes creadores da novas tendencias para o instrumento: Valentín Clastrier, Gilles Chabenat, Gregory Jolivet, Marc Egea, Isabelle Pignol, Óscar Fernández, Anxo Pintos, Adrià Grandia, Germán Díaz … ou os luthieres e investigadores Jaime Rebollo, Xulio Gª Bilbao, Luciano Pérez, Pablo Cid,…
Consolidado en Rianxo, ubicación de excepción para a cultura do país está a vangarda na programación musical para a zanfona, instrumento carismático que segue a sorprender e dando que falar logo de mil anos de Historia.

After ten years, the International Meetings with Zanfona continue to extend the boundaries of this conceptual "medieval synthesizer" territories shared aesthetic postmodern (drone, acousmatic, sequencing computational reductionism speech sound, improvisation, performance, loop, ...) that coexist with popular music and universal, with music and eat right social gathering human perception abstract acoustic landscape of our days.

They are all significant figures of international repute who have gone through this encounter placing India in the global epicenter of the instrument and that marks a wonderful gift for a future where the memory of the instrument is gaining more and more space from resurging 70s aCentral Folque active platform is committed and puts connection and professionals, students and luthiers from 2000 getting a renewal essential for the instrument.

7 JUNE; Putten, NL: Bourdon in het Bos | Stichting Draailier en Doedelzak



Op zondag 7 juni is er weer Bourdon in het Bos bij Putten. Een gezellige dag, buiten in het bos spelen! Geen workshops, cursussen of concerten maar deze dag is speciaal voor samenspelen, jammen en sessies. 
Alle instrumenten zijn natuurlijk welkom! 

Voor alle informatie, zie http://draailier-doedelzak.nl/bourdoninhetbos.htm

** Repertoire
Tijdens het samenspelen kan er natuurlijk van alles gebeuren. Iedereen kan een melodie inzetten. Maar in mei sturen we bladmuziek zodat er in iedergeval wat gemeenschappelijk repertoire is. 

** Locatie
We gaan deze dag in de bossen bij Putten spelen. Dat kan bij het terrein van Scoutinggroep Kon-Tiki dat midden in in het Speulder- en Sprielderbos bij Putten staat.
Mocht het slecht weer zijn, dan biedt dit gebouw voldoende ruimte om in kleinere en grotere groepen samen te spelen.

** Meedoen?
Gezellig! Meld je vooraf vooral aan via  http://draailier-doedelzak.nl/bourdoninhetbos.htm
Dan sturen we het repertoire. Maar als mensen spontaan op de dag zelf besluiten om mee te gaan naar Bourdon in het Bos, dan is dat natuurlijk erg gezellig.

Voor deelname aan Bourdon in het Bos vragen we een kleine bijdrage van 5 euro. We verzoeken dit bedrag op 7 juni contant te voldoen.





* (google translate) On Sunday, June 7th there will Bourdon in the Forest at Wells. A great day, play outside in the woods! No workshops, courses and concerts but this day is special to play together and jamming sessions.
All instruments are welcome!
** Repertoire
While playing together can happen naturally everything. Everyone can use a melody. But in May we send sheet music so that there is at least some common repertoire.
** Location
We're going to play that day in the woods near Wells. It's possible at the site of Scouting Kon-Tiki that amid the Speulder- and Sprielderbos at Wells State.
Should it be bad weather, this building offers plenty of space to play together in smaller and larger groups.
** To Join?
Sociable! Sign advance mainly through http://draailier-doedelzak.nl/bourdoninhetbos.htm
Then we send the repertoire. But when people spontaneously on the day decide to go to Bourdon in the Forest, then that is obviously very cozy.
To participate in Bourdon in the Forest, we charge a small fee of 5 euros. We ask this amount on June 7 to meet cash.

21 MARCH: European Day of Early Music - REMA - European Early Music Network






LIVE VIDEO STREAMINGS FOR THE EUROPEAN DAY OF EARLY MUSIC –





A living memorial to the European historical musical heritage

WHAT? – THE EVENT
A celebration of more than a millennium of music, through concerts, events, and happenings taking place simultaneously across Europe, the REMA European Day of Early Music is an official day for early music and a focal point for the promotion of the historical musical heritage in Europe. The first edition in 2013 took place under the patronage of Mrs Androulla Vassiliou, member of the European Commission, while the second edition in 2014 was supported by UNESCO.

WHY? – A LIVING HERITAGE
Early music is a central part of the cultural heritage shared by Europeans, closely connected with other artistic expressions such as dance, theatre, and architecture. It spans more than 1000 years of music, written down or transmitted by oral tradition, from the Middle Ages to the end of the 18th century. While some of the composers of these eras, for instance Johann Sebastian Bach, Claudio Monteverdi, or Hildegard von Bingen, are widely known, there is a large repertoire still to be rediscovered by today’s audiences. The European Day of Early Music aims to increase awareness of the music from the medieval, renaissance and baroque periods and bring it to the attention of a wider audience.
WHEN? – FOCUS ON EARLY MUSIC
The REMA European Day of Early Music is held every year on 21st March, a day celebrating the beginning of spring, and one of Early Music’s most important composers Johann Sebastian Bach (born on 21st March 1685, according to the Julian Calendar).
WHERE? - THE HISTORICAL CONTINENT
During the European Day of Early Music, events will take place across Europe, creating and encouraging collaboration, and connecting initiatives on a national level in a joint European manifestation that will highlight simultaneously local distinguishing features and the common ground of the continent’s musical history.
WHO? – COORDINATOR AND COLLABORATORS
The official promoter and coordinator of the European Day of Early Music is the REMA network, which currently includes over 65 early music festivals and concert venues in 20 European countries. The network and its members will organise concerts, conferences, and other events under the European Day of Early Music heading, but REMA will also collaborate with other organisations and partners, involving intiatives by organisers on local, regional and national levels.
REMA is supported by:
  • The European Commission through the Creative Europe programme
  • The Direction Générale de la Création Artistique of the French Culture Ministry.
PARTNERSHIPS – MEDIA
 A strong partnership with the media is essential to the impact and visibility of the REMA European Day of Early Music. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) is a partner of the project on the European level. Partnerships between REMA members/other organisers involved in the project and local, regional and national media in each country complement the European aspect.
