Exploring 5 activities you can do as a pianist/musician

1 Comment

 

Since last march, I’m not a student anymore. Enough said… :-?

I thought many times what to do and as everyone know, the situation in Spain right now is really hard with the crisis – I guess it’s very hard everywhere for musicians anyway. Despite of looking for jobs as a teacher in music schools or trying to work free-lance from concerts and gigs, I realized that I won’t solve my life this way.

This year has been really nice so far as I’m working with 2 agencies from US since this summer and having lots of hope to get concerts and a worldwide promotion, but it doesn’t solve my ends of months right now. Lately I’m working on many projects at the same time that are not solving my ends of months neither but hoping it will, little by little. Here is list of the activities I have been doing, and I hope it can also give inspiration to other musicians or pianists. More

I’m sorry, this week I am so busy that I don’t really have time to keep on the serie of my favorite playlist! I will continue next week, I go to France to visit my family and will have some free time to enjoy some nice music together.

Now I’m working at Maestranza on an unknown opera of a spanish composer called Ramon Carnicer. The opera is called Cristoforo Colombo, so basically it is about the journey of Colomb to America.

It’s the second time in history that this opera will be performed, as it has been forgotten after its Première during the 19th century. Carnicer was a friend of Rossini and you can notice that in this opera : the text is in Italian although the composer was spanish, and the music is typical from this period: arias, recitatives, virtuosity… and lots of cadences !
