SEASON 2019/2020 (I)

 

FUNDACIÓN JUAN MARCH

To begin, Frames Percussion will play for the first time in Madrid, at the prestigious Juan March Foundation.

The group will perform 2 concerts on the 13th and 14th of October within the cycle "Young Performers" with music by Xenakis, Grisey, Perich and Hauser among others.

BIO

Frames Percussion, a percussion group dedicated to the repertoire of new creation, represents the talent and commitment to the music of its time. Formed by a new generation of percussionists from our country, the group was born with the intention of facing the most demanding programs of the current repertoire, with careful preparation and the utmost respect for the new compositional languages.


The impact of its presentation in 2014, with the interpretation of an ambitious American post-minimalist music program, has led the group to carry out an incessant activity around this repertoire until the current season. Initially linked to the Joventuts Musicals de Catalunya and the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya (ESMuC), the group has participated in the cycles Sampler Sèries and Escenes of L'Auditori of Barcelona, ​​Cycle OUT.SIDE, Mixtur Festival and ENSEMS International Music Festival Contemporary of Valencia among others. His most ambitious and demanding programs include the premiere in Spain of Timber by Michael Gordon, Le noir del etoile by Gerard Grisey and the recording with the label Nieve Records of David Lang's monumental The so-called laws of nature.

REVIEWS (IN CATALAN)

REVISTA MUSICAL CATALANA

"...quatre joves músics amb una precisió aclaparadora, aquests de Frames Percussion, els quals van mostrar els jocs de Lang de ritmes desestructurats i repartits entre les veus, tenint el públic en excitació en els tres moviments de la peça."

REVISTA MUSICAL CATALANA

 "...els joves músics de Frames Percussion van sorprendre amb una parsimònia excepcional i una precisió mil·limètrica (no pot ser d’una altra manera amb una obra com aquesta). Somriures entre ells, coordinació i concentració, marques que ja defineixen aquest formidable conjunt dedicat amb especial interès a aquest tipus de repertori." 

REVISTA MUSICAL CATALANA

"A partir d’aquí, tot va ser gaudi. El Frames Percussion va oferir una interpretació de l’obra mil·limètrica alhora que intensa i ben estructurada.
Grisey utilitza pocs elements per a la seva construcció, així que el repte per mantenir l’interès és la manera com els combina, tasca que deixa en mans dels intèrprets."
