The Austrian String Quintet in Rio

7 October 2016


Viena-ChaberOn October 25th at 09:00 pm, Teatro Bradesco will receive on their stage the string quintet from Austria.

The quintet was formed in 2006 during the “Year of Mozart” and the group was born from the meeting of musicians from the very first level, based in Vienna, together with the common goal of merging their individuals artistic experiences with a unique and compelling design. Their philosophy is to make music with the highest level of joy, innovation and tradition.

The String Quintet Vienna Chamber Symphony (Wiener Kammersymphonie) started in Spain with concerts dedicated to Mozart, the genius of Salzburg.

Then, they presented a project dedicated to Austrian composers who were contemporaries of Mozart and with the intention of showing that they were opened to any kind of merger with other artistic expressions, they carried out in the “Umbria Music Festival”, crossover projects, fusing pure Viennese classicism with influences from hip-hop dance.

They have performed at the Ravello Festival (Italy), Alba Musicfestival (Italy) and MusicFest Side (Turkey), among others where their concerts were appreciated by audiences and critics, who consider them the best, ever.

On their presentation in Rio they will play W. A. Mozart, E. W. Korngold – Maerchenbilder and L. v. Beethoven

M/V TITANIC will be back to the seas

2 August 2015

50,000 people are interested on its maiden voyage

You read that right. A replica of the Titanic which sank in 1912 will be, once again, crossing the seas very soon.

images (6)The original Titanic was built to be the largest and most modern ocean liner of the 20th century but his first trip was tragically cut short in the early hours of April 15th, 1912 when the ship crashed into an iceberg and sank killing 1495 passengers from the 2200 onboard .

The Titanic 2 will return to the seas between July and September 2016, 104 years after the tragic fate of its first trip.

The new Titanic is ready to receive 2400 passengers onboard and its route will be the same as the previous ship. From Southampton in England to New York in the United States.

The new Titanic  has similar characteristics  to the original one.  270 meters lenght, 53 meters high, 45 meters width and 40,000 tons of deadweight.

This time the security is the main focus and countless tests are being made to ensure the seaworthiness of the ship. To meet the nautical laws, the lifeboats are super modern and will cater to all passengers and crew.

The ship is being built in China and was designed to be an almost exact replica of the original one. It will have a luxury service aboard . The stairs on the main deck will be a copy of the one built 100 years ago and  the glamor will mark the first-class cabins whose decoration is inspired by the Louis XVI and Renaissance times  with modern touch as air conditioning and internet.images (4)

The third class cabins are more modest and will have the furniture like those used in 1916 but the restrictions among the passengers will be not as severe.

Another highlight of the new ship, will be a replica, only for visitation, of the Marconi room where was the communication sector on the previous Titanic whose equipment became obsolete for today.

Let’s wait for the new Titanic 2!
