Dorino Ouvrier "scultore amante dei strumenti" - Aosta/Italia

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Dorino Ouvrier comincia a scolpire nel 1977, anno in cui partecipa per la prima volta alla Fiera di Sant'Orso. Fino a quel momento gestiva un'officina, ma il lavoro non lo soddisfaceva; poco alla volta è diventato uno scultore a tempo pieno. I suoi inizi nella scultura risalgono comunque all'infanzia, allorché creava santoni su cirmolo durante le ore dedicate all'attività manuale.

Produzione: scultura. Il noce è la tipologia di legno che meglio corrisponde al suo stile e alla sua idea di scultura. Questo artista infatti non ama curare i particolari né le proporzioni, ma valorizza piuttosto il movimento e la forza dei pezzi. La sua produzione comprende molti bassorilievi e sculture in tuttotondo che esegue principalmente su ordinazione. Le sue opere traggono ispirazione principalmente dai lavori agricoli e dalle feste di Cogne e fra quali anche pezzi monumentali dedicato al mondo dei strumenti ad ancia libera.

L’atelier è visitabile previa prenotazione telefonica. Ouvrier Dorino, via Dott. Grappein, 103 - 11012 COGNE (AO) Telefono: 0165 74296

Quartango in February in Québec- Canada

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Virtuosity, musicality, elegance, sensuality and humor: Quartango’s music evokes deep emotions … even after 25 years!

Comprising four highly accomplished musicians, bound by their shared passion for the tango and driven by an unceasing desire to make a close connection with their audience, Quartango offers a performance filled with subtle nuances and a blend of colors that reflects both the classics and modernity and the effervescence of the milonga.

Acclaimed excellence
Quartango’s awards include three Opus Awards from the Conseil québécois de la musique, notably 2007/2008 Artist of the Year, a Félix Award and a Juno nomination. The ensemble also continues to delight critics and audiences alike: “The Montreal group heated things up with a concert that was nothing short of brilliant. It was dramatic. It was elegant. It was everything tango music should be,” wrote Kelly-Anne Reiss for the Regina Leader-Post following a concert.

Invited by major orchestras and festivals
Renowned for its performances with many important North American symphony orchestras, including Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, Orchestre symphonique de Québec, the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa, the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, the Regina Symphony Orchestra and Orchestre Métropolitain, Quartango also wowed the critics at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the Ottawa Chamber Music Festival, the Orford Festival and the Festival international de Lanaudière. In the summer of 2008, over the course of three concerts with the OSM, the quartet won the hearts of some 40,000 people with their contagious charm.

A rich and innovative repertoire
Quartango’s vast repertoire is characterized by refined musical arrangements, full of energy, the majority of which are the creations of pianist Richard Hunt (who has also composed some 20 original works for the group). While these arrangements explore Astor Piazzolla’s tango nuevo, they also include hints of the classics, jazz and Celtic music that are as subtle as they are unexpected. Quartango sheds new light on the music of the tango, elevating it to an international level.

Diatonisches Akkordeon - Spiel- und Verzierungstechniken für unterschiedlich weit Fortgeschrittene mit Oliver Stoffregen !

Dieser Kurs richtet sich an Anfänger/innen mit Vorkenntnissen: Zumindest die Grundfertigkeiten auf dem diatonischen Instrument sollten vertraut sein, aber auch weiter fortgeschrittene Spielfähigkeit ist willkommen. Vermittelt werden Techniken zur Bearbeitung einfacher Musikstücke. Themen wie Melodieverzierungen, Balgarbeit und Begleitmöglichkeiten mit den Bässen werden behandelt und - je nach Fortschritt in der Gruppe - Möglichkeiten der Melodievariation und Akkordbegleitung gezeigt. Die Stücke werden in Noten und Tabulatur ausgeteilt, es wird jedoch auch das im Folkbereich traditionelle Erlernen der Melodie nach Gehör geübt.

Diatonisches Akkordeon - Bourrée-Werkstatt für Fortgeschrittene ab mittlerem Spielniveau mit Andreas Bothe !
In dieser Werkstatt spielen wir Bourrées aus den verschiedenen Herkunftsregionen Frankreichs (wie Berry, Auvergne, Bourbonnais). Wie klingen diese „wirklich nach Bourrée“?

Es wird daran gearbeitet, die Stücke so zu spielen und ihnen den entsprechenden Drive und die Rhythmik zu geben, dass die Tänzer optimal unterstützt werden. Zwischen traditionellen Spielweisen und der Verwirklichung moderner Ideen steht die Tanzbarkeit immer im Vordergrund.

Dieser Kurs ist geeignet für Spieler/innen ab etwa mittleren Kenntnissen, d.h. einfache Melodien sollten sicher (ohne abzubrechen) gespielt werden können und die Koordination beider Hände kein Grundproblem mehr darstellen.

Andreas Bothe, Erlangen, spielt diatonisches Akkordeon und Percussion bei "Cassis" und unterrichtet seit vielen Jahren Akkordeon.


Diatonisches Akkordeon - ganzheitlich - hören-arrangieren-improvisieren-erfinden für alle Niveaus außer Anfängern mit Anne Niepold !
Wenn Ihr Euch eine der folgenden Fragen schon mal gestellt habt und ein wenig jenseits des Anfängerstadiums seid, dann könnte Euch dieser Kurs interessieren:

Wie begleite ich jemanden (selbst wenn ich das Stück nicht kenne)?
Zusammenspielen? Ist das nicht nur was für weiter Fortgeschrittene?
Warum klingt das bei DEM so und bei MIR nicht?
Aber wie kann man das denn interessanter machen oder variieren?
Improvisieren? Das kann ich nicht! Wie denn auch?
Wie kann ich meine Technik verbessern?
Rhythmus? Gibt es da noch mehr als den Wechsel von Bass und Akkord?
Theorie? Da verstehe ich (leider) nichts von! Ist das nötig? Ist das schwer?
Komponieren? Das ist doch sicher nur für Könner?
Wir arbeiten an wenigen und eigentlich einfachen Stücken, aus denen wir so viel wie möglich "rausholen". Auch wenn wir z.T. traditionelle Melodien spielen, geht es nicht um bal-folk-Musik, und es ist auch kein Repertoirekurs! Ein bisschen spielen können reicht. Sonst sind keine theoretischen oder praktischen Vorkenntnisse nötig. Bitte mitbringen soweit vorhanden: was zu schreiben, Notenpapier, Aufnahmegerät, ggf. auch Metronom und Notenständer.

15th Cobargo Folk Festival - Australia

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
The historic and picturesque village of Cobargo on the far south coast of New South Wales has been hosting this fun-filled weekend of music, dance, song, comedy and poetry and yarn-telling for the past 14 years.

Over 200 performers converge on the Cobargo Showground over the last weekend in February and provide a pageant of Australian and international talent. The next festival will be held on the 26th, 27th & 28th February, 2010.

Performers and audiences alike have described this festival as "the best little folk festival in the country" (Bob McInnes - Cornstalk Gazette).
Cobargo is situated on the far south coast of New South Wales, mid-way between Narooma and Bega. It is about three hours drive from Canberra and about five hours from Sydney (Click here for a map) Bus services between Sydney and Melbourne stop at Cobargo. The nearest airport is at Merimbula. [see more information and accommodation listings]

The festival started out as a small celebration in the village centre but the growth in popularity of the festival resulted in a move to the Cobargo Showground in 2005. This has been recognised as a positive move in the development of the festival due to the beautiful rural setting, ample space and excellent facilities (including onsite camping with all amenities). Being fully self-contained means that it is great for young children and the festival is very family-friendly. It has also enabled the expansion of both the children’s activities and the dance program.

The Cobargo Showground is situated on the Bermagui Road. It's a short walk to the Cobargo village where there is a good pub, coffee shops, a supermarket and service station. There's also some tempting craft and antique shops. A huge range of food and craft stalls are also provided as part of the festival.

The organisers are all volunteers and the festival itself could not operate without the wonderful people who volunteer their time during the weekend of the festival each year. Volunteering gives a different perspective of the festival, enhances enjoyment and gives free admission. Many volunteers have such a good time that they volunteer year after year. Interested in volunteering? Visit the volunteers page on this website to learn how.

Festival attendees will experience a full program of concerts, workshops, dances, poets breakfasts, comedy acts, sessions, intimate blackboard concerts, plus exotic food stalls, bar and refreshments. This is a very friendly festival and judging from the many accolades from last year's festival it just keeps getting better.

The Cobargo Folk Festival has become a regular treat for residents of the South Coast and many visitors from NSW and interstate. You might like to stay awhile and explore this beautiful region. There's lots to do; beautiful beaches and the historic town of Tilba nearby, visit Bega Cheese and local wineries, explore the stunning local national parks.

Trouveur Valdotén al FolkClub - Torino/Italia

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Torna al FolkClub dopo sei anni questo gruppo nato alla fine degli anni '70, che continua imperterrito il suo percorso di ricerca etnomusicologica nelle Alpi occidentali. L'obbiettivo è sempre lo stesso: dare a questa espressione culturale una dimensione vivente, attuale e sensibile al paesaggio sonoro dei giorni nostri. Il nuovo album, Cromozome, è il risultato di un lavoro di analisi e di elaborazione di un patrimonio orale fatto di canti e di danze, di immagini sognate o di circostanze reali, che concorrono alla salvaguardia della specificità di una regione francofona come la Valle d'Aosta. Questo album è anche bilancio del lavoro compiuto e degli incontri fatti negli anni, che hanno allargato gli orizzonti e le intenzioni musicali dei membri di questa famiglia.

Il concerto è una rara occasione di ascoltare l'esecuzione di un materiale in gran parte inedito, che, tramite l'uso di strumenti della tradizione locale (organetto, violino, ghironda, cornamusa, clarinetto, flauti e percussioni varie, soprattutto in legno, osso e pelle) mantiene il suo carattere arcaico d'origine, valorizzato da arrangiamenti ricchi di freschezza e dinamismo. La dimensione propriamente familiare di questo atipico ensemble di musicisti composto dai membri della famiglia Boniface (padre, madre e due figli) avvicina l'orecchio e il cuore dello spettatore, che attraverso la musica scopre una realtà culturale e linguistica unica.

I Trouveur Valdotén, molto attivi sia a livello locale che internazionale, hanno partecipato a numerosissime iniziative musicali; tra le quali un serie di trasmissioni tematiche dedicate alla musica tradizionale alpina, sulle emittenti radiotelevisive pubbliche e private italiane, francesi e svizzere. Prima di Cromozome hanno pubblicato quattro raccolte: nel 1984 (Meusecca pe vivre), nel 1993 (Le conte di soufflo è di soflet) nel 1998 (Tsanten Tsalende), sui canti e le melodie natalizie delle Alpi, e nel 2000 (Lo bouque que son-e) incentrato sulla millenaria Fiera di Sant'Orso. Oltre ai concerti, alcuni membri del gruppo si occupano di animazioni nelle scuole, proponendo corsi d'apprendimento di strumenti della tradizione e di avvicinamento alla danza tradizionale, di organizzazione di festival (tra i quali Etétrad, che raccoglie ampi consensi a livello internazionale), di esposizioni di strumenti della tradizione (notevole la loro collezione di organetti e fisarmoniche), di pubblicazioni discografiche.

Dopo piu di 20 anni passati a suonare in giro per il mondo con artisti di grande spessore, come Astor Piazzolla, Gotan Projet, Rodolfo Mederos, Luis Bakaloff, Mercedes Sosa, Juan Carlos Caceres, solo per citare i titani, tre grandi virtuosi argentini del tango, si ritrovano per dare vita a un trio che rilegge il tango in modo molto originale, un viaggio dell'immaginario, nel profondo sud del mondo.

Juanjo Mosalini, erede della tradizione del bandoneòn, ha quindici anni di carriera alle spalle, che lo hanno reso figura chiave dell'avanguardia musicale argentina ed europea. Ha fatto parte per anni del quartetto di Luis Bacalov -con cui ha composto tra l'altro anche Misa Tango, Stabat Mater ed il Concerto Triplo- ed è stato scelto dallo stesso Bacalov come strumento solista per la sua opera in musica Y Borges Cuenta Que. Ha partecipato a varie tournée dei Gotan Project e, in Italia, ha collaborato con Francesco Guccini e Lucilla Galeazzi. È membro stabile del quintetto di Tomás Gubitsch ed è solista di alcune prestigiose orchestre. È interprete prediletto dai compositori più avanzati nel campo del tango contemporaneo.
Tomás Gubitsch è universalmente riconosciuto come uno dei migliori chitarristi di tango al mondo. Nato nel 1957 a Buenos Aires, a soli 17 anni è già una star in Argentina con il gruppo rock Invisible, che riempie i palazzetti dello sport con migliaia di persone.
Carlos Buschini è bassista e compositore. Proveniente dagli studi classici, è sul tango che ha rivolto negli anni studi e pratica musicale. Ha suonato con affermati artisti latino-americani (Flaco Biondini, Luis Agudo, Gustavo Ovalles, Javier Girotto) e nelle migliori formazioni di settore (Los Angeles Negros, Los Tambores del Sur, Cordoba Reunion, Horizons Quartet, World Tango Project, Cuarteto Nuevo Tango).
