Festivales Musicales de Buenos Aires, the 30-year old non-profit organization with the aim of spreading music in its highest artistic expressions, presents the Festival 2009 "4 anniversaries": the birth of Henry Purcell (1659) and Felix Mendelssohn (1809), and death of George Frederic Haendel (1759), and Franz Joseph Haydn (1809), with a series of concerts that will be held at Teatro Coliseo, Teatro Avenida, Auditorio de Belgrano, and Covento de Santo Domingo throughout 2009.
Guests this year are Helmuth Rilling (Stuttgart), to conduct "The Creation" by Haydn, and Michael Seal (Birmingham), to offer the Symphony N° 4 and Mendelssohn's Concert for violin with Xavier Inchausti as a soloist. Also, pianist Carmen Piazzini, expert in Haydn, Berlin's Chamber Orchestra, and French ensembles Les Sacqueboutiers and Stanislas Quartet.
Among the local artists, Camerata Bariloche and Orfeón de Buenos Aires will offer Haendel's oratory "The Mesiah", conducted by Master Mario Videla (who will also offer an organ recital), and two groups specialized in baroque music: Les Goûts-Réunis (dir. Juan Manuel Quintana) with soprano María Cristina Kiehr, and La Barroca del Suquía (dir. Manfredo Kraemer), with trumpet player Serge Tizac.
