Alessandra Rombolà & Xelo Giner are two international soloists, whose professional career is characterized by their specialization in the investigation and interpretation of contemporary repertoire and newly created works.
The present project presents a wide repertoire of works for soloist and acoustic chamber music and works based on new applied technologies: electroacoustic and audiovisual.
In the works of new creation, where the interpreters intervene during the process and creative feedback with the composer, they present us with a daring work based on the experimental search that will allow them to amalgamate the extensive sonorities produced by the different flutes and saxophones.
In the performative stage work, the two interpreters stand out for a strong personality characterized by the communicative gestural interaction and movement between them, and with the audience itself as a transmitting element.
The program that forms the project is based on the one hand on works of consolidated composers of the current contemporary panorama: Sofia Gubaidulina, Kaija Saariaho, Olga Neuwirth or Chaya Czernowin and on the other hand, in works of composers belonging to the new generation, such as Elena Rykova , Sarah Nemtsov, Diana Rotaru, Helga Arias, Nuria Jimenez, Sasha Lemke, Yumiko Yokoi, Junghae Lee, Annelies Van Parys, Katherina Rosenberger, Sanae Ishida, Irene Galindo and Helena Casanova among others.
This project is a reflection of artistic expression and both human and latent: music through the interpretation and improvisation in real time. The sonorous result of this training instruments, saxophone and electroacoustic device is a job search based on sound, exploring the technical and timbre of each instrument, and getting an audible fusion of a strange beauty.
The present program consists of original works for our training, works as a duo, solo works and improvisation.
The soloists of this threesome project bring forth a ground-breaking proposal that parts from the works for saxophone, violin and electronics that have been written for the performers: Grab them by the pussy by Helga Arias, Juana la loca by Miguel Ángel Berbis, Grietas de piel by J.J. Peña Aguayo and Retórique by Carlos Perales. An explosive mix that demands the intense chamber musicianship necessary for a desired balance between such
contrasting timbres as are the violin and the saxophone, joining them with electronic sounds. Thus, the exchange between performers and composers is of vital importance. The remaining compositions have been cautiously selected for the exposition of the diverse possibilities and resources present in the interaction among traditional instruments and the applied technologies.
The soloists of this project In Acoustic present a proposal with works by duo and just some of the great references of the new music of the XX and XXI centuries. An explosive combination that requires intense camera work to achieve the perfect balance of two contrasting sonorities such as the saxophone and the violin, or the sax and viola, as well as the demanding works that only make up the program.
This project continues the work being done by Xelo Giner and Jenny Guerra with works for sax, violin and electronica, written and dedicated to the performers: Grab them by the pussy by Helga Arias, Juana la loca by Miguel Ángel Berbis, Skin cracks from JJ Peña Aguayo and Retórique de Carlos Perales, in addition to the works dedicated individually to each of them, which make up a catalog of more than 60 creations.
Elisa Urrestarazu, Ana Lencina,
Sara Zaro and Xelo Giner.
Profesional musiciens, renowed teachers and international concertists, awarded in several international competitions, specialized in contemporary music and more concretely on the development of music creation focusing on live music, and very well known on the contemporary music scene, Xelo Giner, Elisa Urrestarazu, Ana Lencina and Sara Zazo – four powerful women – create in year 2014 an exciting projet where the aim is to open the concept of saxophone quartet to new ways which enrich the formation itself.
All of them completed their formation in “Conservatoire Jacques Thibaud de Bordeaux”, France, with Marie – Bernadette Charrier and Jean Marie Londeix, being that one of the roots which unifies their energy and also, one of the marks of the group.
The mixture of experience and the nature of each component gives to the group a reference signal based on the exploration of the four instrument resources, with the aim of transform it in only one, concrete, particular and simultaneously. This is birth of Constelación Saxophone Quartet.
Project based on research, investigation, experimentation and development of the technical and interpretive voice and saxophone.
The diffusion of contemporary music and the creation of new works for this training involve the base of her repertoire, performing direct work with the composers.
One thing to be considered is the development of performance and improvisation as well as merging with other artistic disciplines such as theater, dance, visual arts and audiovisual reproduction.
