Collecting Data For A Concerto

Enrico Chapela’s Magnetar, a concerto for electric cello, was commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra for the German-Canadian cellist Johannes Moser. As Moser recounted the story before Saturday’s performance, he and the LAPO exchanged lists of possible composers and Chapela was on both, a happy coincidence.

El Mundo Sobrevive Al Día Maya Con Cultura Y Comercio

Después de la discusión, a la medianoche la Orquesta Sinfónica Internacional de Dresde se unió a músicos en México para un “concierto al final de los tiempos” en vivo. La composición “Albaktún” de Enrico Chapela, estrenada al mismo tiempo, se acercaba a su clímax con un ritmo intenso: el director mexicano José Areán interrumpió a las doce en punto. Un cantante y músico de México y Guatemala apareció en vivo en una pantalla; el trabajo terminó sincronizado a ambos lados del Atlántico.

El mundo festeja el día maya con cultura y comercio

Luego de la charla, el elenco internacional de la Dresdner Sinfoniker tuvo una conexión en vivo con músicos en México a la medianoche para un “concierto al final de los tiempos”.

La composición "Albaktún" de Enrico Chapela, que se estrenaba entonces, se encaminaba hacia su clímax con un ritmo intenso: el director mexicano José Areán paró a las doce en punto. Un cantante y músicos de México y Guatemala aparecieron en vivo en una pantalla, el trabajo terminó luego de manera sincrónica a ambos lados del Atlántico.

“Chapela was on hand for “Li Po,” a gruff, explosive essay for orchestra with electronics. Much of the score, with its growly sounds and blocky orchestral textures, is reminiscent of Varèse, but at the midpoint Chapela puts on his dancing shoes and breaks out of that mold to delightful effect.”

“The unexpected delight of the evening was Enrico Chapela’s Concerto for Electric Cello and Orchestra, otherwise known as MAGNETAR. Dudamel had given the world premiere in LA just three days before.”

Reviving Up With Adams, Chapela And Prokofiev.

“For the new piece, “Magnetar,” by Enrico Chapela, cellist Johannes Moser emerged with the Yamaha SVC-110SK electric cello, which has a fingerboard and strings, but with a body that is merely an empty outline. “

San Francisco Clasical Voice

“...in composing [MAGNETAR, Chapela] aimed for an aptly outsized sound world. For the most part, he has suceded. [...] Magnetar may not be everyone’s idea of a concerto, yet it fuses its influences into something both heavyweight and alluring.”

“Young and old — in suits or T-shirts and jeans, in high heels or sneakers — smiled, stood and cheered. There was no indication that I could see of shock, outrage or condescension. Delight seemed to pervade a packed house. This means that either Chapela is doing something very right or very wrong. Audiences have changed, and he has managed to please them.”

Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Phil. “On the new works, you can’t get any fresher than Enrico Chapela’s MAGNETAR, which for some reason is written in all caps.”

One of the gems, from 2006, is jazz-influenced, while others serve as reminders that Stravinsky once walked the earth. But it’s doubtful that he ever attended a Mexican soccer match, or knew all the authentic cheers that are ingeniously worked into Enrico Chapela’s fabulous ínguesu. You may not know them, either, but the percussion and effects will nonetheless slam into your gut with savage intensity. ”
