Mali by ste poznať celú pravdu. Môžem vám porozprávať anjelskú verziu, ale tá nie je pravdivá. Môj príbeh v sebe mieša diabla aj anjelov so štipkou krutosti. Ak to chcete v živote niekam dotiahnuť, musíte mať z každého trochu.

Astor Piazzolla

 

Úvodné podujatie festivalu dedikovaného Piazzollovi pripravili Konvergencie v spolupráci s Kinom Lumière. V nedeľu 18. apríla o 20:20 si bude možné v slovenskej online premiére pozrieť oceňovaný dokument The Years of the Shark (Roky žraloka) režiséra Daniela Rosenfelda, ktorý použil archívne záznamy, snímky zo súkromného rodinného archívu i rozhovory s Piazzollovými deťmi, aby vykreslil živý portrét vášnivého a originálneho umelca, ktorý sa vzoprel tradíciám, aby navždy zmenil svet hudby. Online premietanie filmu so slovenskými titulkami sa uskutoční v rámci cyklu PRÍBEHY UMENIA na portáli www.kino-doma.sk. Film je možné sledovať len na území Slovenskej

“My music is new, it’s music of this century, music where you can smell the tango. That’s why the world liked it so much.”

Here you can learn in his own words about the life of Astor Piazzolla (1921 – 1992), charismatic artist, hell-raiser, bon vivant and globetrotter, who managed to combine such apparently different worlds as the Argentinian tango and classical music.

About Piazzolla’s childhood in his native Argentina, his experiences as an emigrant in New York, his study of classical music in Paris; about his hopes, disappointments, loves, and above all his burning passion for music: you will hear all this in the joint programme of the actor Robert Roth and the accordionist Boris Lenko, one of the pioneering performers of Piazzolla’s works in Slovakia.

The selection of texts from Natalio Gorin’s book Astor Piazzolla: A Memoirwhich appeared during the final years of the composer’s life, was prepared by Andrej Šuba. The event is part of the programme of Convergences, the international festival of chamber music, which the Slovak Arts Council has supported from public funds.

Suita Five Tango Sensations pre bandoneón a sláčikové kvarteto vznikla v roku 1989. Astor Piazzolla vytvoril toto nádherné dielo pre známy americký súbor Kronos Quartet, s ktorým päť poetických hudobných esejí o smútku a láske o dva roky neskôr v New Yorku aj nahral. Skladba Five Tango Sensations sa stala Piazzollovou poslednou štúdiovou nahrávkou. „Posadili sme sa a hrali. Nikdy predtým sme dielo nenahrali rýchlejšie a asi sa nám to už ani nepodarí,“ spomínal neskôr na koncentráciu a atmosféru vážnosti, ktorá prípravu nahrávky sprevádzala, huslista Kronos Quartet David Harrington. Kompozícia, ktorú kritika nazvala „dielom tragickej krásy“, zaznie na festivale Konvergencie v Záhrade Domu Albrechtovcov v interpretácii Borisa Lenka a zoskupenia Konvergencie Quartet. Výťažok z koncertu bude venovaný na obnovu pamiatky, o ktorú sa stará o.z. Albrecht Forum.

In the summer of 1988, Astor Piazzolla was visited by a young bandoneonist who was interested in the study of composition.I remember that he lived in a forest. I got out of the car, and the family was waiting for me round the corner. He didn’t have a bell, so I clapped my hands, because there’s never enough applause and he deserved it,t,” was how Marcelo Nisinman later remembered their first meeting. The friendship of Marcelo Nisinman and Astor Piazzolla began with a conversation on Bach’s music and Glenn Gould, and lasted until the composer’s death in 1992. Marcelo Nisinman has performed with such legends of tango as Roberto Goyenche, Susana Rinaldi and Amelita Baltar, and also with world-renowned classical and jazz musicians (Gidon Kremer, Sérgio and Odair Assad, and Gary Burton). At Convergences he will tell the story of tango via Piazzolla’s music and his own compositions. Prepare yourself for a musical ecstasy.

Hora cero. Astor Piazzolla thought of midnight as “hour of the absolute end and the absolute beginning”. This magical time is also in some of his titles: his 1960s composition Buenos Aires Hora Cero and a legendary album Hora Zero from 1986, which this genius of Argentinian tango regarded as one of his best. A reviewer in Rolling Stone magazine admired the fusion of contemporary classical music and jazz in this recording, with an energy he compared to rock and roll. Piazzolla’s co-performers recall that the magic of Hora Zero emerged from their long-standing friendship. This night-time concert too will have a magical atmosphere; it will feature outstanding Slovak musicians who have been moving for many years in the world of jazz and classical music, with a dramaturgy created for Convergences Festival by the accordionist Boris Lenko.

“In the musical event called Alea, it is not important which direction the freedom that approaches is heading for; what matters is that this auspicious body of musicians “zieht uns hinan”, raises us above ourselves, gives us a dimension that we had no intuition of before hearing this music.”
Jozef Piaček

ALEA, an ensemble which the accordionist Boris Lenko founded in 2001, is among the pioneers in the presentation of Piazzolla’s music in Slovakia. In a programme created specially for Convergences Festival, there will be a performance in the original quintet version of The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, the composer’s famous homage to the city of Buenos Aires and the Italian Baroque genius Antonio Vivaldi. Also part of the dramaturgy will be Piazzolla’s Concierto para Quinteto (1971), the composer’s songs with singer Adriena Bartošová, including the title song from Piazzolla’s opera María de Buenos Aires, and works by the Slovak composers Peter Zagar and Stanislav Palúch which were written for ALEA.

Slovak tangosinterpreted by the Bratislava Hot Serenaders Orchestra & Milan Lasica

Slovenské tango, jasné pravidlá, slovenské tango, orchester každý hrá, slovenské tango, nevrav, že ho nemáš rád,“ spieval Richard Müller v piesni, ktorú napísal spolu s Andrejom Šebanom na album skupiny Banket Druhá doba v roku 1988. Kultový text s dávkou sarkazmu a irónie mohol vzniknúť vďaka fenoménu „slovenského tanga“, ktorý v originálnej podobe na Konvergenciách predstaví orchester Bratislava Hot Serenaders pod vedením Juraja Bartoša. Na koncerte, ktorého vzácnym hosťom bude aj pán Milan Lasica, zaznejú najkrajšie slovenské tangá od Ernsta Genersicha, Karola Elberta, Pavla Čádyho, Franka Zemplínskeho, Viktora Freyera, Dušana Pálku a, samozrejme, Gejzu Dusíka v pôvodných aranžmánoch tak, ako boli premierované v 30. a 40. rokoch 20. storočia. Bratislava Hot Serenaders rozhodne nehrajú „slovenské tango“ ako každý orchester, príďte sa presvedčiť.
