Musical radiography of 2018

Musical radiography of 2018


We are going another year and this is his brief musical summary. The most important event in our country was undoubtedly the frustrated union of the Teatro Real with the Zarzuela. It was about to end despite the manifestos of many social sectors and the obscurantism with which the process was carried out. The change of Government was decisive for its cancellation. But the Real has continued to be news after announcing its budget balance when the press has analyzed its accounts through the BOE to conclude that its own funds, of more than 30 million euros in 2009, have become negative. Almost everything caused at the time Mortier. But things go wrong for many musical entities. The Palau de les Arts is pending an eminently political trial, at least as regards the innocent former mayor Helga Schmidt. To top it off, his lawyer, seriously hospitalized, has had to resign and the court gives just one week to look for a replacement from Italy. Meanwhile, there is a new artistic director, Jesús Iglesias, but two managers have already resigned in just one month. The Lyceum renewed general and artistic direction, without having yet a successor to it. The Maestranza does not dare to fail his contest until there is no new Government in Andalusia, while the Royal Orchestra of Seville begins his. In Oviedo they are now pulled by the hair for having let out the Campoamor awards, recently resurrected by Opera XXI. In the ORCAM his manager was dismissed for questions that came before he arrived and about which the Community looked elsewhere. The RTVE Orchestra faces the succession of Gómez-Martínez with Pablo González. ABAO continues along the arguable path that it undertook years ago, the Association of Friends of the Opera of A Coruña continues its miraculous struggle. In Málaga, it is fought by an audience. Of all the Inaem units will cease this year their managers except in the Zarzuela, while proposing new law to solve their management problems, which is as much as saying that, for now, there is nothing to do and everything will remain the same. Antonio Moral left the CNDM in the good hands of Francisco Lorenzo. The OCNE deserves its own article, before all its problems with surveys between its lecterns on management and main direction with tremendous results, relays and casualties. The Teatros del Canal continue turning their backs on the music by work and grace of the Ministry of Culture. The SGAE still without solution … Much remains in the pipeline, among other things the denunciations of «Me Too», but I can not close without my emotional memories to Montserrat Caballé, Carmen Mateu, Javier Alfaya, Carmen Alborch, Aretha Franklin, Gennadi Rozhdéstvenski, José Antonio Abreu, María Oran, Jesús López Cobos, Elena Herrera, Claudio Scimone, Gustavo Tambascio, Gianfranco Cecchele, Ricardo Requejo, Tito Capobianco, Inge Borkh, Jean-Claude Malgoire, Michel Sénechal
