On Saturday morning, tenor Duilio Smiriglia and soprano Jaquelina Livieri will perform works by Beethoven and Tchaikovsky, accompanied by the Rio Grande-based Kayen orchestra.
The particularity of this day is that, through the sponsorship of the Municipality of Ushuaia, it will be carried out with free tickets previously delivered to the attendees.
“The festival returns renewed and with the idea of forming its own stable orchestra from Tierra del Fuego. At first it will be an academic orchestra made up of students from both Buenos Aires and the province. But over time, it will become more professional. It is a desire that we always had”, explained Santiago Lanzillotta, head of Festspiele, organizer of the festival.

“To listen to classical music you don’t have to be a connoisseur or listen to it regularly. You just have to be predisposed to live a different experience. It is closing your eyes and letting yourself go like on a roller coaster”, said Lanzillotta.
In turn, he referred to the landscape environment in which the concerts will take place and the technical characteristics of the room where they will take place.
“It is not the Teatro Colón, with natural acoustics, but Israeli software is used that produces an incomparable acoustic sensation. We also seek to discard this type of event. You don’t have to come to concerts with certain clothes. You have to come predisposed to live a moment with all your senses”, insisted the owner of the production company.

The festival also plans to hold two concerts in the city of Río Grande, in addition to free evenings and masterclasses in schools.
In relation to the program, the organizers announced a review of “the best of the classical repertoire of all time.”
After the Gianneo Quartet and the lyric gala, the program for the following days includes performances by the Buenos Aires Classical Trio (violin, cello and piano), the trumpet and piano duo A dos pianos, the Argentina Horn Ensemble horn quartet, the Blansarme wind quintet and the Gurevich-Báez-Rutkauskas trio that will present a double bill, solo and with orchestra.
The local Kayen orchestra will perform Mozart’s concert for two pianos and the famous “Symphony No. 40 K. 550″ on Friday the 24th in Río Grande and on Saturday the 25th in Ushuaia.
For its part, the final concert will be on Sunday, March 26, with a program dedicated to Beethoven, through his “Triple concert” and his “Symphony No. 7”, under the direction of Maestro Dario Ingignoli, the organizers detailed.
