Mozart in Havana

 

 

The Lyceum Mozartiano de La Habana:
The Lyceum Mozartiano de La Habana  was founded in 2009 jointly by the office of the Historiador de La Habana Eusebio Leal, the Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA) – the most important institution in Cuba for musical training – and the Universität Mozarteum Salzburg. The Cuban Youth Orchestra trains and performs at the Lyceum Mozartiano, which is also the place where further training occurs in all aspects of classical European music and contemporary Cuban music. 
A Mozart Festival in Havana:
The project has been supported by the European Union since 2012, initially for a period of three years.  This three-year phase of the project comes to an end in October 2015 and will be celebrated in Havana with a Mozart Festival.  
Several concerts will take place from 16 to 24 October 2015 in Havana in which Cuban and European artists will participate; the range of performances also includes film and dance. In the opening concert the Youth Orchestra of the Lyceum Mozartiano de La Habana, conducted by its principal conductor José Antonio Méndez Padrón, performs Mozart’s Concerto for Flute in G major, K. 313, and the Mass in C minor, K. 427. Guests from Europe include soprano Claire Elizabeth Craig, violinist Renaud Capuςon, viola player Gérard Caussé, cellist Clemens Hagen, Siegfried Mauser, Vice-Chancellor of the Universität Mozarteum, and the guest conductor Ronald Zollman. This Mozart Festival is planned, however, mainly by Cuban artists such as the flute player Niurka González, soprano Bárbara Llanes, pianist Frank Fernández and the Camerata Romeu; the programme includes works by  W. A. Mozart, Franz Schubert and Ludwig van Beethoven, as well as pieces by Leo Brouwer, Ignacio Cervantes and  Cayetano Pagueras. This Mozart Festival presents a unique combination of European classical and Cuban music tradition.
For the finale of the Mozart Festival, the Youth Orchestra of the Lyceum Mozartiano de La Habana conducted by Ronald Zollman will perform the Symphony in E flat major, K. 543, and the Symphony in C, ‘Jupiter’, K. 551, by W. A. Mozart. 
The programme has already been published and can be downloaded from the right column. 
CUBAN MOZART RESIDENCE: EUROPEAN DEBUT BY THE CUBAN YOUTH ORCHESTRA AT THE MOZART WEEK 2015
During the Mozart Week 2015 the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation succeeded in inviting an orchestral group from the Lyceum Mozartiano de La Habana to Salzburg. 
On 27 January 2015 the young Cuban orchestra made its European debut in a special concert in the Great Hall of Salzburg University. This was followed in the evening by a night-time concert in the Great Hall of the Mozarteum, and afterwards in the ‘Cuban’ lounge in the Wiener Saal Mozart’s 259th birthday was appropriately celebrated!
The project is financed by the European Union: www.ec.europa.eu/europeaid

Statement by Dr. Heinz Fischer, President of the Federal Republic of Austria:

“I am very pleased that the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation has succeeded, together with its Cuban partners, in evolving and implementing a very special arts education project.
The fact that young Cuban musicians will come to Salzburg for the Mozart Week in 2015 is a remarkable sign of the power of music to bring people of different nations together. I am grateful to all those who have contributed to the realization of this inspiring international cultural exchange.”

 

In November 2014 the new acoustic sail has been installed at the 'Oratorio San Felipe Neri' in Havana. Here you can see a summary of the setup:
