PROGRAMME OF CULTURAL ACTIVITIES JANUARY-JULY 2012

01/17/2012

Concerts of classical and contemporary music, seminars on photography and engraving, theatre for children, educational workshops, guided tours, poetry readings, flamenco and jazz, are just some of the activities with which the MPM complements its art programme.

Museo Picasso Málaga is kicking off the year by presenting the new cultural activities scheduled for the first quarter, along with the continuing cycles that began at the end of 2011. Concerts of classical and contemporary music, seminars on photography and engraving, theatre for children, educational workshops, guided tours, poetry readings, flamenco and jazz, are just some of the activities with which the MPM complements its art programme. Several of these activities are part of the Picasso 20 Gazes. Malaga, 20 Years under Picasso&rsquo";"s Gaze programme, which will continue all this year, and which is organized by the Junta de Andalucía and other institutions.

By programming these activities, the aim is for Museo Picasso Malaga to become a lively venue for culture, where people can relate to the arts, through the arts, fostering knowledge and a critical approach and employing various formats, schedules and spaces. So from now until July this year, there will be a series of activities that target at all kinds of public: adults, toddlers and children, those with special needs, families, and more.

To organize this programme of cultural activities, MPM has once again joined forces with various local institutions in Malaga and the rest of Andalusia, such as the Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra, the Andalusian Centre for Literature, the Malaga Film Festival and the Heeren Flamenco Foundation, while over the next few months there will be new collaborative projects with Teatro Cánovas.

CONTEMPORARY MUSiC CYCLE MPM Auditorium, 20.30 h

Organized by Orquesta Filarmónica de Málaga, this new edition of the 18th Contemporary Music Cycle will once again pay tribute to a major name in music. This year, the cycle is dedicated Leonardo Balada.

Balada was born in Barcelona in the 1930s, but spent most of his life in the United States. The maestro&rsquo";"s compositions reveal his Spanish-American influences, which are ever-present in his long and multifaceted musical catalogue. He was also an eminent teacher, a fact that can be testified by his pupils, who will also be performing in this cycle.

For the first time, and in line with its policy of fostering collaboration with Malaga&rsquo";"s local institutions, the Museo Picasso Málaga Auditorium will be hosting five of the concerts that have been scheduled for various different venues in Malaga.

José Manuel Cabra de Luna and Diego Santos will discuss the work of Alberto Giacometti in the company of the artistic director of Museo Picasso Málaga, José Lebrero Stals. Led by the museum&rsquo";"s educational staff, the family tours and workshops See, Touch, Make and Shaped Forms, and the interactive tour for adults, Through Your Hands, will make up the rest of the programme for the day.

THE LOOK SOME MORE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME September 2011 &ndash";" June 2012

Once again, Museo Picasso Malaga&rsquo";"s educational and communication strategies will be used on a regular basis in the classrooms of Colegio Rosario Moreno, where both pupils and teachers will be taking part. The 2010-11 school year showed that pupils who are exposed to this way of viewing things for a length of time become more open and flexible in their approach to art. They are more observant, more confident, and they draw more conclusions.

This project is run in collaboration with Obra Social Unicaja.

FLAMENCO AT MPM. HUMOUR AND PLAY MPM Auditorium, 21.00h

In February, the third cycle of Flamenco at MPM continues. The programme has been coordinated by Fernando Iwasaki and Marta Carrasco, in collaboration with Fundación Cristina Heeren de Arte Flamenco, and it brings together a number of performers whose art is aimed at reflecting on the relationship between humour and Flamenco.

Flamenco has always been at odds with seriousness and solemnity. Yet despite this merry and relaxed spirit, flamenco is interspersed with severity, and can even be tragic or unsettling. So the third edition of Flamenco at MPM is aimed at exploring everything in flamenco that is playful and cheeky, its humour and double meanings, while paying tribute to all the artists who have made humour their expressive medium.

&emsp";" CYCLE OF CHAMBER MUSIC MPM Auditorium, 21.00 h October 2011-May 2012

Once again this year, the fifth Cycle of Chamber Music, organized by the Orquesta Filarmónica de Málaga, has drawn up an ambitious programme comprising some of the choicest pieces from the Western chamber music repertoire. This time, the cycle has been opened up to other groups in order to enhance the highly attractive programme of concerts, which will bring us two stars from orbits that work well together: Brahms and Schoenberg.

This fifth cycle will also offer some rare titbits: unique pieces from the repertoire and stimulating incursions into the art of transcription that we will be able to hear in the closing piece of the last concert in the cycle: the Octet in E-flat major, an arrangement - very possibly by the composer himself - of Mozart&rsquo";"s Quintet KV 452.

MUSIC AT MPM. SAXO JAZZ May - June, 21.00 h

One hundred years since it first burst onto the jazz scene, the saxophone still imposes its rules on the world of improv. Its codes and languages continue to expand its idiosyncrasy, using the past to propel it forward with the times. The four concerts in this cycle, in which the sax is the focus, show us the evolution and current validity of this instrument, and also its various alliances and contexts. Several generations of European and American musicians have cleared the way and enhanced the language of an instrument that has broken through the confines of aesthetics by embracing its role as a symbol. Cycle coordinated by Salvador Catalán.
