Soinua iratzarri = Despertar el sonido = Awaken the sound = Réveiller le son
A musical project that blends creation, mediation and the acknowledgement of contemporary and past composers. The year 2015 marks the 100th anniversary of the death of José María Usandizaga and this project is based on his works and those of Lili Boulanger, a French composer and orchestra director. Alongside Jesús Guridi, Usandizaga is known as the father of Basque opera and an outstanding exponent of the Belle Epoque. Pupils from two schools that have no prior education in music will revisit their work in a way that can be used by contemporary composers as a foundation for new music scores. The participants will then perform these at a final event with instruments they have made themselves.
