A concert of special relevance in our programming.
The young trombonist João Teixeira, who began his academic training at the Madeira Conservatory of Professional Arts with the guidance of Professor Luís Rodrigues, is currently studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London, to study with Dudley Bright and Ian Bousfield.
This cycle, which has proved to be an important point in our program, aims to make known to our audience the young people who had their initial training in Madeira and who have excelled in their higher education, and on the other hand recognize the level of the artistic and pedagogical teaching that is practiced in the region.
For this occasion we have a special program. Larger composition names such as Mozart, Grieg and Tchaikovsky with musical direction by Yuriy Kyrychenko and Rachmaninov and Larsson with João Teixeira’s solo.
In the Legislative Assembly Hall of Madeira, the Ensemble XXI, which will give a sound body to this concert, the soloist João Teixeira and the composers elected for this special occasion, who with the quality and richness of their musical literature have the ability not to leave us indifferent to its creation.
Our musicians, playing for themselves the music of the world!
