Postage Stamp Exhibition

 At the Gustavo Bacarisas Gallery, Casemates Square.

Organised by Richard Garcia

10am- 5pm Weekdays 

Saturday 10am to 1pm

Free Entry

 

A stamp exhibition is to be staged at the Gustavo Bacarisas Gallery from Monday 10 to Wednesday 12 October 2016. It will mark two important anniversaries. It will be the 50th anniversary of the first stamp designs for Gibraltar produced by Freddy Ryman, who went on to become our most prolific stamp designer; it will also mark the issue of the first special stamps by Gibraltar on a purely local theme.

The exhibition will be inaugurated at 12 noon on Monday 10 October, in the presence of members of the late Freddy Ryman's family. It will then be open to the public until 5.00 p.m. The exhibition can also be viewed on Tuesday 11 and Wednesday 12 October between 10.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m. Entrance is free.

The material on display has been prepared by Stephen Viñales. It includes all the 85 sets comprising 336 stamps issued by Gibraltar that were designed by Freddy Ryman over 25 years, between 1966 and 1991; the 12 miniature sheets and 3 Gibraltar stamp booklets also designed by him; some of the artwork and proof material for stamp designs that he produced; and even some of the unadopted stamp designs that he created. These were designs that were never used as stamps. All the artwork is unique.

There will also be a cabinet dedicated exclusively to the first special stamps for Gibraltar on a local theme, the set of three stamps issued on 27 August 1966 to mark the European Sea Angling Championships, which were held in Gibraltar. Prior to this date, there had only been one stamp issue on a Gibraltar theme: the New Constitution overprints of 1950. They marked the inauguration of the Gibraltar Legislative Council, the forerunner of Gibraltar's Parliament. There stamps were overprints, not specific designs for the special issue.

With the issue of the European Sea Angling Championship stamps in 1966, Gibraltar philately took off in a completely new direction. The three stamps were the first to be designed by Freddy Ryman, who was later awarded the MBE in 1973 for "sustained efforts, over a number of years, devoted to the design of Gibraltar stamps". He is the only Gibraltarian to have been so honoured. This set of stamps also produced the first major error of the 20th century on a Gibraltar stamp: the black printing was omitted on a sheet of 7d stamps. One of these stamps will be on display at the exhibition.

From the Sea Angling stamps onwards, it became the norm for local events to be marked with stamp issues; stamps were produced on Gibraltar-related themes; and Gibraltar stamps were now primarily designed by a Gibraltarian artist instead of someone from abroad.

The Sea Angling issue also saw another first for Gibraltar: the production of the first ever Gibraltar Presentation Pack. It has subsequently become the norm for the Post Office to issue a Presentation Pack with every issue.

The help of the Department of Education has been enlisted to arrange for groups of pupils from Gibraltar schools to see the exhibition and be given a talk and tour of the exhibits. A number of slots have been made available for organised school tours. The talks will be delivered by Richard Garcia and Stephen Viñales.

The organisers wish to thank Gibraltar Philatelic Bureau Ltd, the Ministry for Culture and the team headed by Ms Angela Bula and the Gibraltar Museum who have been of material assistance in the preparation of the exhibition.

Viola and Piano Recital


The Gibraltar Philharmonic Society is privileged to present the 1st principal violist of the Berlin Philharmonic, Amihai Grosz in a recital with pianist Yaron Rosenthal  at 8:00pm at the Convent Ballroom.

Amihai Grosz, born in 1979 in Jerusalem, Israel, initially learned to play the violin at the age of 5, before switching to the viola at age 11. In Jerusalem, he was taught by David Chen, later by Tabea Zimmermann in Frankfurt and Berlin as well as in Jerusalem by Haim Taub, who had a formative influence on him. Amihai Grosz received scholarships through the American-Israeli Cultural Foundation and was a member of the “Young Musicians Group” of the Jerusalem Music Center, a program for outstanding young musical talents. This gave him the opportunity, at a very young age, to work with renowned artists such as Isaac Stern or the Guarneri Quartet. He won 1st prize in the Braun Roger Siegel Competition of the University of Jerusalem and received the renowned Gottesman Prize for Viola in the Aviv Competition, the most prominent competition in Israel.

Amihai Grosz works, in solo and in chamber music projects, with artists such as Yefim Bronfman, Emmanuel Pahud, Mitsuko Uchida, Oleg Maisenberg, Janine Jansen, Julian Rachlin and David Geringas; he performs in concert houses and at festivals all over the world, including at the Jerusalem Chamber Music Festival, Delft Festival, Salon Festival and Verbier Festival, at the BBC Proms, in the Bahnhof Rolandseck, at the Utrecht International Chamber Music Festival, at Spectrum Concerts Berlin and at the West Cork Chamber Music Festival.

After 10 years of professional work, 2010 marks the start of something new for Amihai Grosz: Beginning in the 2010/11 season, Grosz is the Principal Violist with the Berliner Philharmoniker, an orchestra with which he has worked on various projects in recent years.

Yaron Rosenthal  is member of Piano Faculty, the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance. Member, with Roi Shiloah and Ariel Tushinsky, of the internationally acclaimed Jerusalem Trio. He has played as a soloist with leading orchestras such as the Israel Philharmonic, the Jerusalem Symphony, National Orchestra of RAI, Turin, Calgary Philharmonic, Santiago de Chile Philharmonic, the Camerata Virtuosi of New York, and other orchestras. Rosenthal has given recitals and participated in chamber-music concerts in Israel, Europe, North and South America, Australia, and South Africa. Among his professional awards: the Leonard Bernstein Fellowship at Tanglewood, Italian Government Award for the Arts, and special fellowship from Banff Center, Canada. Studied with Benjamin Oren and Pnina Salzman in Israel and with Murray Perahia in London. 


Programme:
J.S. Bach – Sonata No 1 in G major
E. Bloch – Hebrew melody, for viola and piano
R. Schumann – Fantasy Pieces Op.73
F. Schubert – Arpeggione Sonata in A minor
