9th INTERNATIONAL PHAROS CONTEMPORARY MUSIC FESTIVAL
6 – 13 October 2017
The Shoe Factory, Nicosia

*** Ακολουθεί ελληνικό κείμενο

The 9th International Pharos Contemporary Music Festival is focused on the evolution of traditional music into what we now identify as ‘new music’. Entitled “EAST music WEST” and organised between 6 and 13 October 2017 at The Shoe Factory in Nicosia, the Festival aims to stand as the meeting point of traditions from east to west, from the past to the present: a crossway in which instruments from various cultures mingle with their western descendants, a hybrid platform where the joint but also the contrasting music elements from various traditions around the globe are exposed, and a unique sonic experience where oral and improvisational practices are combined with modern notation and compositional techniques. The Festival will present four distinct concerts, while a number of other corresponding activities, such as lectures, workshops and educational activities, will take place throughout the week.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

● FRIDAY 6 OCTOBER 2017:
CONCERT WITH WU WEI (SHENG) & NAOMI SATO (SHŌ)
'EXPLORING THE SOUNDS OF THE FAR EAST'

The first concert of the 9th International Pharos Contemporary Music Festival, on Friday 6 October 2017, will travel us to the Far East and the transcendental sounds of the Chinese Sheng and the Japanese Shō. The Sheng is one of the oldest wind instruments in the world, with a history over 3.000 years. Consisting of several bamboo pipes set in a small windchest, the Sheng has played a significant role in the development of Western musical instruments, including the accordion and the harmonica, as well in the East, where many similar instruments were born out of it. One of these instruments is Sheng’s smaller sibling, the Japanese Shō, which has a very distinct sound, said to be imitating the call of a phoenix, and which has been the source of inspiration for a number of contemporary composers. The Festival is proud to welcome for the first time in Cyprus the world famous Sheng player Wu Wei, who will join forces with the brilliant Shō player Naomi Sato. Having appeared as a soloist with many leading orchestras around the world, including the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra under Kent Nagano and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra under Gustavo Dudamel, Wu Wei has helped to develop the Sheng into an innovative force in contemporary music, by creating new techniques, expanding the new repertoire and integrating different styles and genres. Naomi Sato studied the Shō at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and continued her studies at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. She has appeared as a soloist with a number of orchestras and ensembles including Orchestre de L’ Académie Européenne de Musique with Pierre Boulez, Ensemble Labyrint, Ives Ensemble, Ictus Ensemble and Diotima Quartet.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

● SUNDAY 8 OCTOBER 2017:
CONCERT WITH SHAWN MATIVETSKY (TABLA)
'TABLA – THE KING OF PERCUSSION INSTRUMENTS'

The second concert of the Festival, on Sunday 8 October 2017, will be an exciting percussion experience by Shawn Mativetsky – one of the most dynamic performers of Tabla in the world and a pioneer in bridging the worlds of Western and Indian classical music. Mativetsky is described by the media as “an exceptional soloist” and “as a leading disciple of the renowned Pandit Sharda Sahai”. His instrument, the Tabla, is regarded as the queen of the percussion instruments and it has a very distinct sound that makes it an integral part of Indian music. Originally associated with the Indian classical dance Kathak as well as the dance traditions of the Tawaifs (sophisticated courtesans during the Mughal rule in the mid-18th century), the Tabla (consisting of two drums, the Bayan and the Dayan) is now used in a variety of genres and styles of Hindustani music. In Northern India, the Tabla is a ubiquitous instrument which accompanies Hindu religious songs (Bhajan), Sikh linguistic performances (Shabad), the ritual music of the Sufis (Qawwali) and Arabic sonnets (Ghazals). Its sophistication and charm has attracted the attention of scholars, musicians and music lovers around the globe. The popularity of the Tabla as a solo instrument continually grows as time goes on, as the instrument can hold its melodic own for hours and yet not sound boring. It is a much sought after instrument in cross-cultural and fusion musical experiments, and apart from classical music, the Tabla has made its mark on devotional, theatre and film music.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

● WEDNESDAY 11 OCTOBER 2017:
CONCERT WITH ENSEMBLE C BARRÉ UNDER THE DIRECTION OF SEBASTIAN BOIN
'WESTERN COMPOSERS REFLECTING EASTERN MUSIC'

The third concert of the Festival, on Wednesday 11 October 2017, will host for the first time in Cyprus the outstanding Ensemble C Barré which will join forces with soprano Sarah Maria Sun, under the direction of Sebastian Boin. Associated with the National Centre for Musical Creation of Marseille and having appeared in such venues and festivals as the Philharmonie de Paris, the Grand Théâtre de Provence, Festival Les Musiques and Festival de Chaillol, C Barré is an ensemble of unique personality, quite distinct from today’s musical landscape. The makeup of the Ensemble is unrivalled (clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, percussion, accordion, mandolin, guitar, harp, cimbalom, keyboards, cello and double-bass) and is enriched by the dynamism and thirst for experimentation of its musicians. Furthermore, the Ensemble regularly takes on other instruments – as in the case of their concert in Nicosia, which will also include instruments such as bouzouki, the Armenian Duduk and zithers. The concert will feature works by Iannis Xenakis, Igor Stravinsky, Benjamin Britten, Alexandros Markeas, and world premieres by Mikel Urquiza, François Rossé and George Christofi.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

● FRIDAY 13 OCTOBER 2017:
CONCERT WITH THE LINGUA FRANCA ENSEMBLE
'SOUNDSCAPES OF THE EASTERN MEDITERRANEAN'

The 9th International Pharos Contemporary Music Festival, on Friday 13 October 2017, will end its journey through the various world music traditions, in an eastern Mediterranean flair with the Lingua Franca Ensemble. The Ensemble, comprising Michalis Cholevas (Yayli Tanbur, Tarhu, Ney), Giannis Koutis (Oud, Guitar), Michalis Kouloumis (Violin) and percussionist Ruven Ruppik (Riq, Darbuka, Frame Drums, Marimba) – all graduates of the Codarts University of the Arts in Rotterdam, circumnavigates on a musical wandering during which the rich eastern Mediterranean traditions and western music elements blend and compose colourful soundscapes. Always abiding by the character of the modal music cultures, Lingua Franca will present a unique programme, which will also include world premieres by composers Vasilis Filippou and Andreas Tsiartas.

9ο ΔΙΕΘΝΕΣ ΦΕΣΤΙΒΑΛ ΣΥΓΧΡΟΝΗΣ ΜΟΥΣΙΚΗΣ ΦΑΡΟΣ
6 – 13 Οκτωβρίου 2017
The Shoe Factory, Λευκωσία

Φέροντας τον τίτλο «EAST music WEST», το 9ο Διεθνές Φεστιβάλ Σύγχρονης Μουσικής Φάρος επικεντρώνεται στην εξελικτική πορεία της παραδοσιακής μουσικής προς το είδος που σήμερα αναγνωρίζουμε ως ‘σύγχρονη μουσική’. Το Φεστιβάλ, το οποίο διοργανώνεται από τις 6 μέχρι και τις 13 Οκτωβρίου 2017 στο The Shoe Factory, Λευκωσία, θα αποτελέσει σημείο συνάντησης μουσικών παραδόσεων από την Ανατολή μέχρι τη Δύση, από το παρελθόν μέχρι το παρόν: Ένα σταυροδρόμι όπου μουσικά όργανα διαφόρων ανατολικών παραδόσεων θα αλληλοεπιδρούν με τους δυτικούς απογόνους τους. Μια υβριδική πλατφόρμα η οποία θα εκθέσει τα κοινά αλλά και τα αντιπαραβαλλόμενα μουσικά στοιχεία των πολιτισμών. Και μια απαράμιλλη μουσική εμπειρία κατά την οποία οι προφορικές και οι αυτοσχεδιαστικές παραδόσεις θα συνδυαστούν με τη σύγχρονη μουσική σημειογραφία και τις νέες τεχνικές σύνθεσης. Κατά τη διάρκεια της εβδομάδας, το Φεστιβάλ θα παρουσιάσει τέσσερις μοναδικές συναυλίες, οι οποίες θα συνοδεύονται παράλληλα και από διάφορες εκπαιδευτικές δραστηριότητες, εργαστήρια μουσικής και διαλέξεις.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------


● ΠΑΡΑΣΚΕΥΗ 6 ΟΚΤΩΒΡΙΟΥ 2017:
ΣΥΝΑΥΛΙΑ ΜΕ ΤΟΥΣ WU WEI (ΣΕΝΓΚ / SHENG) & NAOMI SATO (ΣΟ / SHO)
«ΕΞΕΡΕΥΝΩΝΤΑΣ ΤΟΥΣ ΗΧΟΥΣ ΤΗΣ ΆΠΩ ΑΝΑΤΟΛΗΣ»

Η πρώτη συναυλία του 9ου Διεθνούς Φεστιβάλ Σύγχρονης Μουσικής Φάρος, την Παρασκευή 6 Οκτωβρίου 2017, θα μας ταξιδέψει στην Άπω Ανατολή και στους εξωτικούς ήχους του Κινεζικού Σενγκ (Sheng) και του Ιαπωνικού Σο (Shō). Το Σενγκ είναι ένα από τα αρχαιότερα πνευστά όργανα στον κόσμο, έχοντας ιστορία πέραν των 3.000 χρόνων. Αποτελείται από πολλά καλάμια μπαμπού τα οποία συνδέονται σε μια μικρή αεροδοχή και έχει διαδραματίσει σημαντικό ρόλο στην ανάπτυξη αρκετών Δυτικών μουσικών οργάνων, συμπεριλαμβανομένου του ακορντεόν και της φυσαρμόνικας, αλλά και στην Ανατολή όπου πολλά παρόμοια όργανα γεννήθηκαν μέσα από αυτό. Ένα από αυτά τα όργανα είναι και το μικρότερο σε μέγεθος Ιαπωνικό Σο, το οποίο διακρίνεται για τον ιδιαίτερο ήχο του που παραπέμπει στο τραγούδι του φοίνικα και έχει καταστεί πηγή έμπνευσης για αμέτρητους σύγχρονους συνθέτες. Το Φεστιβάλ θα φιλοξενήσει για πρώτη φορά στην Κύπρο τον παγκοσμίου φήμης σολίστα του Σενγκ, Wu Wei, ο οποίος θα ενώσει τις δυνάμεις του με την εξαιρετική εκτελέστρια του Σο, Naomi Sato. Έχοντας εμφανισθεί ως σολίστ με ορισμένες από τις σημαντικότερες ορχήστρες ανά το παγκόσμιο, μεταξύ άλλων τη Φιλαρμονική του Βερολίνου υπό τη διεύθυνση του Kent Nagano και τη Φιλαρμονική του Λος Άντζελες υπό τον Gustavo Dudamel, ο Wu Wei έχει συνδράμει σημαντικά στην εξέλιξη του Σενγκ αναπτύσσοντας το σε μια καινοτόμο δύναμη στη σύγχρονη μουσική μέσω της δημιουργίας νέων τεχνικών, της διεύρυνσης νέου ρεπερτορίου και της ενσωμάτωσης διαφόρων τεχνοτροπιών και στιλ. Η Naomi Sato σπούδασε παραδοσιακό Σο (Shō) στο Εθνικό Πανεπιστήμιο Καλών Τεχνών και Μουσικής του Τόκιο και συνέχισε τις σπουδές της στο Κονσερβατόριο του Άμστερνταμ. Έχει εμφανισθεί ως σολίστ με σημαντικές ορχήστρες και σύνολα μουσικής, μεταξύ άλλων, Ορχήστρα της Ευρωπαϊκής Μουσικής Ακαδημίας υπό τον Πιερ Μπουλέζ, Ensemble Labyrint, Ives Ensemble, Ictus Ensemble και Κουαρτέτο Diotima.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

● ΚΥΡΙΑΚΗ 8 ΟΚΤΩΒΡΙΟΥ 2017:
ΣΥΝΑΥΛΙΑ ΜΕ ΤΟΝ SHAWN MATIVETSKY (ΙΝΔΙΚΗ ΤΑΜΠΛΑ)
«ΤΑΜΠΛΑ – Ο ΒΑΣΙΛΙΑΣ ΤΩΝ ΚΡΟΥΣΤΩΝ»

Η δεύτερη συναυλία του Φεστιβάλ, την Κυριακή 8 Οκτωβρίου 2017, θα είναι μια συναρπαστική ακουστική εμπειρία υπό τον ήχο των κρουστών από τον Shawn Mativetsky. Έχοντας χαρακτηρισθεί από τα ΜΜΕ ως «ένας εξαίρετός σολίστας» και «ο κορυφαίος διάδοχος του Παντίτ Sharda Sahai», ο Mativetsky είναι ένας από τους σημαντικότερους πρεσβευτές της ινδικής Τάμπλα (Tabla) ανά το παγκόσμιο, και έχει πρωτοστατήσει στη γεφύρωση της Δυτικής κλασικής μουσικής και της κλασικής μουσικής της Ινδίας. Το όργανό του, η Τάμπλα, θεωρείται η βασίλισσα των κρουστών και ο ιδιαίτερος ήχος της την κάνει αναπόσπαστο μέρος της ινδικής μουσικής. Αρχικά συνδεδεμένη με τον παραδοσιακό χορό Καθάκ καθώς και τις χορευτικές παραδόσεις των Tawaif (εξαιρετικά εξευγενισμένων εταίρων κατά την Αυτοκρατορία των Μουγκάλ περί τα μέσα του 18ου αιώνα), η Τάμπλα (η οποία αποτελείται από δύο τύμπανα – το Bayan και το Dayan) χρησιμοποιείται σήμερα σε πολλά είδη και τεχνοτροπίες της ινδουστανικής μουσικής. Η Τάμπλα είναι πανταχού παρούσα στη μουσική της Βορείου Ινδίας, συνοδεύοντας ινδουιστικά θρησκευτικά τραγούδια (Μπάτζαν), ρητορικές επιδείξεις των Σιχ (Σαμπάντ), τελετουργική μουσική των Σούφι (Καβαλί) και αραβικά σονέτα (Γκαζάλ). Η φινέτσα και η γοητεία της Τάμπλα έχει προσελκύσει το ενδιαφέρον μελετητών, μουσικών και μουσικόφιλων ανά το παγκόσμιο, ενώ η δημοτικότητά της ως σόλο όργανο αυξάνεται συνεχώς, κι αυτό διότι το συγκεκριμένο κρουστό μπορεί να εκτελείται για ώρες χωρίς ποτέ να γίνεται βαρετό. Πρόκειται για ένα όργανο που διαδραματίζει πρωτεύοντα ρόλο σε μουσικούς πειραματισμούς διαπολιτισμικού περιεχομένου, και πέρα από την παραδοσιακή μουσική, κατέχει σημαντική θέση στη θρησκευτική μουσική της Ινδίας καθώς και στη μουσική για το θέατρο και τον κινηματογράφο.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

● ΤΕΤΑΡΤΗ 11 ΟΚΤΩΒΡΙΟΥ 2017:
ΣΥΝΑΥΛΙΑ ΜΕ ΤΟ ENSEMBLE C BARRE ΥΠΟ ΤΗ ΔΙΕΥΘΥΝΣΗ ΤΟΥ SEBASTIAN BOIN
«ΣΥΝΘΕΤΕΣ ΤΗΣ ΔΥΣΗΣ ΑΠΗΧΟΥΝ ΜΟΥΣΙΚΕΣ ΤΗΣ ΑΝΑΤΟΛΗΣ»

Η τρίτη συναυλία του Φεστιβάλ, την Τετάρτη 11 Οκτωβρίου 2017, θα φιλοξενήσει για πρώτη φορά στην Κύπρο το εντυπωσιακό Ensemble C Barré το οποίο θα συμπράξει με τη σοπράνο Sarah Maria Sun υπό τη διεύθυνση του Sebastian Boin. Έχοντας συνδεθεί με το Εθνικό Κέντρο Μουσικής Δημιουργίας της Μασσαλίας και με εμφανίσεις σε σημαντικά φεστιβάλ και αίθουσες συναυλιών όπως Φιλαρμονική του Παρισιού, Grand Théâtre de Provence, Festival de Chaillol και Φεστιβάλ Les Musiques, το C Barré είναι ένα σύνολο με πολύ ιδιαίτερη προσωπικότητα, που διακρίνεται από το υπόλοιπο μουσικό τοπίο της εποχής μας. Η απαράμιλλη σύνθεσή του (κλαρινέτο, σαξόφωνο, τρομπέτα, κρουστά, ακορντεόν, μαντολίνο, κιθάρα, άρπα, κύμβαλο, πληκτροφόρα, βιολοντσέλο και κοντραμπάσο) εμπλουτίζεται περαιτέρω από τον δυναμισμό των μουσικών του και την δίψα τους για πειραματισμό. Ανάλογα από την περίσταση, το Ensemble C Barré αναλαμβάνει επιπλέον την εκτέλεση κι άλλων οργάνων – όπως και στην περίπτωση της συναυλίας τους στη Λευκωσία που θα περιλαμβάνει επίσης όργανα όπως μπουζούκι, ντουντούκ και τσίτερ. Το πρόγραμμα θα περιλαμβάνει έργα των Ιάννη Ξενάκη, Ιγκόρ Στραβίνσκι, Μπέντζαμιν Μπρίτεν, Αλέξανδρου Μαρκέα καθώς και παγκόσμιες πρεμιέρες των Mikel Urquiza, François Rossé και Γιώργου Χριστοφή.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

● ΠΑΡΑΣΚΕΥΗ 13 ΟΚΤΩΒΡΙΟΥ 2017:
ΣΥΝΑΥΛΙΑ ΜΕ ΤΟ LINGUA FRANCA ENSEMBLE
«ΜΟΥΣΙΚΑ ΤΟΠΙΑ ΤΗΣ ΑΝΑΤΟΛΙΚΗΣ ΜΕΣΟΓΕΙΟΥ»

Το 9ο Διεθνές Φεστιβάλ Σύγχρονης Μουσικής Φάρος θα ολοκληρώσει το ταξίδι του την Παρασκευή 13 Οκτωβρίου 2017, με τους οικείους ήχους της ανατολικής Μεσογείου από το Lingua Franca Ensemble. Οι τέσσερις εκπληκτικοί μουσικοί που το απαρτίζουν – Μιχάλης Χολέβας (Γιαϊλί Ταμπούρ, Τάρχου, Νέϋ), Γιάννης Κουτής (Ούτι, Κιθάρα), Μιχάλης Κουλουμής (Βιολί), και ο κρουστός Ruven Ruppik (Ρεκ, Δαρμπούκα, Τύμπανα, Μαρίμπα) – είναι απόφοιτοι του Πανεπιστημίου Τεχνών Codarts του Ρότερνταμ. Το Lingua Franca Ensemble περιπλέει σε μια μουσική περιήγηση κατά την οποία οι πλούσιες παραδόσεις της ανατολικής Μεσογείου συνδυάζονται με στοιχεία της δυτικής μουσικής για να συνθέσουν γλαφυρά μουσικά τοπία που χρησιμοποιούν τη μουσική ως την κοινή τους γλώσσα. Πάντοτε πιστοί στον χαρακτήρα των τροπικών μουσικών παραδόσεων και απελευθερωμένοι από την ανάγκη δημιουργίας εκφραστικών υπερβολών, οι Lingua Franca θα παρουσιάσουν ένα μοναδικό πρόγραμμα το οποίο θα περιλαμβάνει επίσης παγκόσμιες πρεμιέρες των Ανδρέα Τσιάρτα και Βασίλη Φιλίππου.
