Domingo García Hindoyan hace historia dirigiendo en la Opera Metropolitana de Nueva York

Venezuela Sinfónica

23.02.2017

Conducirá a un elenco de estrellas en la ópera Elisir d’amore de DonizettiVenezuela Sinfónica | EspecialLos  directores venezolanos siguen haciendo historia en el mundo, sin duda puede decirse que Venezuela se ha convertido en una especia de fábrica de estrellas de la dirección orquestal. Llueven las noticias en distintos lugares del mundo sobre las hazañas de los criollos y esta vez le tocó al caraqueño Domingo García Hindoyan. 

El arte y la diplomacia corren por las venas de este joven formado en su niñez como violinista en El Sistema. Su padre fue presidente de la Orquesta Sinfónica Venezuela y su madre fue una conocida ex – parlamentaria. Domingo, luego de su temprana formación musical, decidió ir al exterior para profesionalizar sus estudios y consiguió el título universitario de Director de Orquesta en la prestigiosa  Haute Ecole de Musique de Genova.   

Formó parte de la West-East Divan Orchestra, fundada y dirigida por uno de sus mentores, Daniel Baremboin, y conformada por un grupo de músicos musulmanes, judíos y católicos, como una iniciativa de paz y convivencia. Luego se convirtió en primer asistente del maestro Barenboim en la Berlín State Opera Orchestra llevando varias presentaciones de La Traviatta.  

Más adelante, ya como director música, el maestro García – Hindoyan dirigió algunas de las óperas más famosas como Turandot, El Barbero de Sevilla, La Traviata y una renovada versión de Hänsel y Gretel.  

Ahora vive uno de sus mejores momentos y se convertirá en el primer venezolano en dirigir nada menos que en un escenario de fama y prestigio mundial como lo es la Opera Metropolitana de Nueva York (The Metropolitan Opera House).  

García Hindoyán levantará su batuta para conducir a un elenco de estrellas internacionales en la ópera  Elisir d’amore de Donizetti, como lo son Matthew Polenzani (Nemorino), Pretty Yende (Adina), Davide Luciano (Belcore) e Ildebrando D’Arcangelo (Dulcamara).  

El Elixir del Amor ( Elisir d’amore) fue compuesta por Gaetano Donizetti y estrenada en Milano, Italia en 1832. Ha sido una de las obras más versionadas de su autor, así como una de las óperas que cuenta con el mayor número de grabaciones discográficas. García Hindoyan ha manifestado su satisfacción y entusiasmo por tomar las riendas de este proyecto que será estrenado en febrero de 2018.

Tour Concert / Philharmonia Orchestra

18.01.2017

"... I was impressed by conductor Domingo Hindoyan’s attention to the details of the score, and his confident gestures were expressive.  A product of the now legendary El Sistema project in Venezuela, Hindoyan sought to emphasise the melodic qualities of the overture, and as the players settled we enjoyed some broad-breathed phrasing from the woodwind in particular.  The conductor increasingly stirred up a wind-swept energy, culminating in the violin sections’ perfectly co-ordinated surge through a rising diminished seventh arpeggio, triggering an explosive coda which had real sonic lustre.

Hindoyan’s performance was similarly self-assured when the Philharmonia accompanied violinist Michael Barenboim in a pristine performance of Prokofiev’s first violin concerto of 1917.  If conductor and soloist seemed surprisingly relaxed, then their regular appearances together with the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra – of which Hindoyan has been a standing member since 2006, and Barenboim Concertmaster since 2003 – probably helped.

Hindoyan was determined to highlight the work’s orchestral delicacies, leaving Barenboim to reveal the virtuosity of its technical acrobatics – which he did with nonchalant effortlessness and calm focus ...

This short concerto – it’s just over twenty minutes in length – relies for its full expressiveness on a sparking orchestral colour palette and Hindoyan coaxed finely crafted, vivid individual lines and timbres from the Philharmonia.  He was unwaveringly sensitive to his soloist, who was never forced to push his sound.

The grand dramatic trajectory of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony seemed to suit Hindoyan’s temperament.  This was an interpretation of seriousness, urgency and sweeping vision, especially in the first three movements, which captured the symphonic majesty of the work.  The con Brio which Beethoven appends to the opening movement’s Allegro indication was intently observed: Hindoyan set off at quite a lick, scarcely observing the fermata of the symphony-defining fate motif.  The strings’ counterpoint was crisp and clean, the fast tempo inducing a lightness that was welcome; there was not a single overlooked detail ...

The Scherzo was full of character – notable were the striking rhythmic blasts from the horns, and the dark rumblings in the Trio from the cellos and basses.  The transition to the final movement was skilfully negotiated – both technically and expressively.  Subdued fragments of the Scherzo’s main theme were darkened by the timpani’s portentous pulsing; then the violins scaled their arpeggio arrived at a taut tremolando which Hindoyan released in a blaze of C major brilliance.

Throughout this performance, conductor and orchestra seemed a comfortable fit for each other.  Hindoyan had something fresh to say about Beethoven’s symphony – one of the most familiar compositions in classical music – and the Philharmonia were pleased to have a well-known journey refreshed by unaccustomed vistas and by-ways.  The large Canterbury audience were evidently greatly appreciative."
