For those of you too young to remember, his instrument is a manual typewriter. grin

What exquisite sound Maestro Anaya manages to coax out of that instrument! It sounds like a 1940s Royal Signet -- does anyone know anything about the typewriters they produced during this period? Unfortunately, I've only ever heard Typeway & Sons in concert.

I pretty sure that was a wrong note that he played at 3:21.

I heard something off there, too, but I thought maybe he was using a touch of rubato to liven things up. grin

Brilliant.

The director sounds just like an annoyed office manager, he really reminds me of mine. grin

"Vamos Fernandez, que llega usted tarde!" "Un La, por favor" "No la enchufa?" (I cannot hear Anaya's answer), "Que, podemos empezar o no?"


(Come on Fernandez, you are late!. A "La", please. Don't you plug it in? So what, can we start or not?)



The concert was one of many given by VOCES PARA LA PAZ, MUSICOS SOLIDARIOS (Voices for Peace, Caring Musicians), created in 1998 to raise money to fund practical projects for needed people around the world. "The Strength of Music for a Fairer World". They play very popular themes and make sure that they are approachable to the public and create interest for the young in particular. Normally one concert per year, they are all busy professional musicians.

That particular concert in 2011 was to get money in order to build 8 water wells for small villages in Niger, to directly benefit over 5,000 people.

Last concert, 2013, helped to raise money both for a school in Uganda and for many needed families in Spain due to the crisis, distributing food, food for schools... I am sure that they never thought they would end up helping people in Spain with something as basic as food. But with around 25% of people unemployed in Spain and many without job security, you can imagine how hard things are "for most". Over 2,2 Million Spanish children live in "relative poverty" today according to Unicef.


If a typewriter was the main instrument, this time it is mere sand paper! (Sandpaper Ballet, also by Anderson)





Or the Spanish castanuelas





I'm sure you know this one, we call them "Los Picapiedra"





And what would Offenbach think of this?





But of course they also play "more serious stuff"
