2013-2014 Music Season Schedule

From the very start, the Focus-Abengoa Foundation’s musical programming, which always revolves around the great “Grenzing” organ in the Church of Los Venerables at the Foundation’s headquarters, has been based on four kinds of events, depending on the audiences to which they are directly targeted and the objectives we seek with them.

First, we offer a series of Didactic Recitals throughout the academic year for adolescents from the schools of Seville and its province. At these recitals, the participants receive information on this complex instrument, including its nature and history, how it works and its potential, and they are treated to an organ recital featuring the Foundation’s tenured organist and a team of music teachers with degrees in organ music from the Higher Music Conservatory of Seville.

For young university students, every November an Organ Recital Series to Promote Young Organists is held once the annual School of the Baroque has concluded, and always related to its topic. This series gets its name from the fact that we spotlight Spanish organists who have finished their higher organ degrees with an extraordinary end of degree prize, and the goal is to promote them and make them known. To this end, the recitals are broadcast by the classical station of Radio Nacional. This year the guests were Alberto Sáez Puente, who studied at the Higher Music Conservatories in San Sebastián and Aragón and today is the pianist and organist with the Symphony Orchestra of La Rioja; the Catalan Jordi Cabré Roca, who graduated with flying colours from the Higher Music School of Catalonia with a degree in performance which he earned with professor Oscar Candendo and another in improvisation which he earned with Juan de la Rubia, both of them previous guests in this same Organ Recital Series to Promote Young Organists; and finally Barcelona native Aarón Ribas, the tenured organist of Sant Pere Màrtir church in Escaldes-Engordany.
