SP–LX | NEW MUSIC
Starting in 2015, a new partnership between two of the most prominent cultural institutions from Brazil and Portugal – the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra Foundation (São Paulo) and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (Lisbon) – will make possible the premiere of new commissioned works by Brazilian and Portuguese composers.

Each work by a Brazilian composer will be premiered in São Paulo, by the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra (Osesp) and later played in Lisbon by the Gulbenkian Orchestra; conversely, each work by a Portuguese composer will be premiered in Lisbon and later played in São Paulo. Whenever possible, the scores will be published by “Criadores do Brasil”, the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra’s publishing branch.

To inaugurate the project, Brazilian composer Aylton Escobar will write a work for choir and orchestra, to be played at Sala São Paulo, on April and May, 2015, with the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra and Choir conducted by Osmo Vänskä. The same work will be performed on October, by the Gulbenkian Orchestra and Chorus, conducted by Alondra de la Parra.

Then, in 2016, Portuguese composer Luís Tinoco will write a symphonic piece to be premiered in Lisbon, by the Gulbenkian Orchestra, and later played by the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra in its subscription season.

Through this joint effort, the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra Foundation and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, who have always been known to support the music of our own time, will not only help the circulation of new music in both countries –and hopefully around the world--, but strengthen the cultural ties between these two Portuguese speaking countries.

2014 SEASON CELEBRATES OSESP’S 60TH ANNIVERSARY

The home of several generations of musicians and conductors, the Osesp has been primarily motivated during its 60-year history by the quest for musical excellence and the democratization of concert music.


To celebrate this trajectory, the 2014 Season consists of 37 weeks of concerts in the Sala São Paulo concert hall, including performances by the Orchestra, the Osesp’s Choir and chamber groups, as well as recitals. In addition, the Season includes tours of five cities in the state of São Paulo in February, and performances in six Brazilian state capitals in August.

More than 70 invited conductors and soloists will take part in the Season. The Artist in Residence will be the French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet; the Visiting Composer, the Scot James MacMillan; and the Featured Composer, Leonard Bernstein.


In 2014 the Osesp’s Choir will celebrate its 20th anniversary and, as well as performing a series of special concerts in the Sala São Paulo hall and around the state of São Paulo, there will be a special tribute to Mariana Valença, who has been a member of the Choir since its inception.

Five Brazilian composers will see their commissioned works performed by the Osesp for the first time, namely Alexandre Lunsqui, Celso Loureiro Chaves, Egberto Gismonti, Ronaldo Miranda and Sergio Assad. The Season will also feature the debut performance of an arrangement created by Dori Caymmi based on the work of Dorival Caymmi, and an international co-commission by the North American John Adams, considered one of the greatest contemporary composers.

Check out all the details of the 2014 Season.

SÃO PAULO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA'S DIGITAL LABEL
Last year the Osesp Foundation launched another project designed to make classical music accessible, free of charge, to an increasingly wider public. The Digital Label makes freely available, to listen to or to download, a catalogue of recordings of works from the Foundation’s archive.
 
The first recordings to be made available on the Label were those of the contemporary composers Gilberto Mendes and Aylton Escobar. Gilberto’s Alegres Trópicos featured the already classic ‘Beba Coca-Cola’, and Obras Para Coro by Aylton Escobar included a piece of work commissioned by the Osesp, ‘Tombeau’. 

The Digital Label also released Melhores Momentos featuring Gilberto Siqueira, to commemorate his 40 years as the lead trumpet player with the Osesp, which includes works by Guarnieri, Villa-Lobos and Tchaikovsky; Concertino Para Oboé by Brenno Blauth, which featured on the CD that commemorated the oboist Arcádio Minczuk’s 30 years with the Osesp; and also the Sinfonia dos Orixás e Outras Obras Sinfônicas by Almeida Prado, conducted by assistant conductor Celso Antunes and featuring the violinist Cláudio Cruz. 

In 2014 the Label plans to release works by Henrique Oswald, Armando Albuquerque, Ronaldo Miranda, Sérgio Assad, Celso Loureiro Chaves and Alexandre Lunsqui.
