Brothers, José Luis and Raúl Ortega Castro are the voices behind the popular romantic Mexican pop duo, Río Roma.

In 2011, the brothers finally had the opportunity to fulfill their dream of interpreting their own compositions and become the new voice for romantic music in Mexico. Their first album, Al Fin Te Encontré, shattered Latin American records proving that their talent went beyond their poetic words on paper. The duo received two nominations for Premio Lo Nuestro 2015: Group or Duo of the Year-Pop Category and Best Collaboration of the Year-Mexican Region.

Celebrate love during the month of Valentine’s Day by watching Río Roma perform their romantic hits, Al Fin Te Encontré, Me Cambiaste la Vida, Por Eso Te Amo, Tan Sólo un Minuto y Mi Persona Favorita.

Vasily Kandinsky and Franz Marc Expressionism and Der Blaue Reiter @ El Paso Museum of Art
Mar 1 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

As a logical successor to the EPMA’s first Modern Masters Series: Highlights from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum installment that explored the beginnings of Cubism in works by Paul Cézanne and Pablo Picasso, this second Guggenheim focus installation-Vasily Kandinsky and Franz Marc: Expressionism and Der Blaue Reiter-examines the bold and colorful energy of two leaders of German Expressionism, which followed closely on the heels of Cubism as the next major modernist style of the early twentieth century.

Along with the Dresden-centered Die Brücke (The Bridge), Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) represented the core of German Expressionism, a movement which borrowed ideas from painters like Vincent van Gogh, and that influenced subsequent generations of artists, including Neo-Expressionists in the 1970s. Led by Kandinsky and Marc, Der Blaue Reiter focused on the psychology and emotion of colors and spirituality in art.

The pair of Guggenheim works by Kandinsky and Marc-Landscape with Factory Chimney (1910) and White Bull (Der Stier, 1911), respectively-demonstrate the powerful beginnings of Der Blaue Reiter. They express the artists’ mutual interest in expressive, arbitrary, and brilliant saturated colors, bold simplified forms, and symbolic interpretations of the natural world. The works also illustrate each man’s unique vision: Marc’s empathetic connection with the animal world and Kandinsky’s inclination toward abstraction.

Together, the paintings evoke a brief but significant moment in twentieth-century modernism as Kandinsky returned to his native Russia only a few years later, compelled by the outbreak of World War I, and Marc died serving in the German army, while stationed on the Western front.

Finally, another key feature of Der Blaue Reiter was its theoretical focus on the connection between visual art and music. Therefore, it is especially fitting that among the many related programs being planned around the exhibition is a free performance of the Kandinsky-Alfred Schnittke work titled The Yellow Sound (Der Gelbe Klang), by the El Paso Opera.
