OSESP AT THE 25TH BRAZILIAN MUSIC AWARDS
With three CDs competing among the finalists for the Best Classical Music Album, the Osesp was the unanimous winner at the 25th Brazilian Music Awards, held on the night of the 14 May at the Municipal Theatre in Rio de Janeiro.  

The winner was the CD Symphony nº 6 – On the Outline of the Mountains of Brazil and Symphony nº 7, performed by the Osesp and conducted by Isaac Karabtchevsky (Naxos/Movieplay), the first of six volumes that form part of the project to re-visit from a musicological perspective and record the 11 symphonies by Heitor Villa-Lobos. This project was undertaken by the Criadores do Brasil label, under the supervision of the maestro Karabtchevsky.  

This project, a fundamental development in the dissemination of the oeuvre of Brazil’s most important composer, whose symphonies are still rarely performed, can already be considered as one of the most significant of the Osesp’s undertakings.  

Symphony nº 6 (1944) was written via a process devised by Villa-Lobos, in which he extracted the melodies from tracings on graph paper of photographs of the Serra dos Órgãos mountain range, and the Corcovado and Pão de Açúcar peaks in Rio de Janeiro. Symphony nº 7 (1945), one of the composer’s most ambitious pieces of work, contains orchestration that gives prominence to the woodwind and percussion sections, as well as including a piano, two harps and a Hammond Novachord (a type of electronic synthesizer).  

The other two albums that featured among the finalists for the prize were the Anthropophagic Concerto, performed by the Osesp, the Pau Brasil Group and Mônica Salmaso, conducted by John Neschling, and Rachmaninov – Concerto nº 3 For Piano and Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, performed by Arnaldo Cohen on the piano and the Osesp conducted by John Neschling, both of which were recorded on the Biscoito Fino label.
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.
