DISCOVER THE VOICE IN EVERYTHING
May 27, 2022
FRI MAY 27 at 7:30 pm | Music Hall
ALBERTO GINASTERA: Suite from Panambí
HEITOR VILLA-LOBOS: Chôros No. 10, Rasga o Coração ("Rend the Heart")
ANTONIO ESTÉVEZ: Cantata criolla: Florentino, el que cantó con el Diablo ("Creole Cantata: Florentino, who sang with the Devil")
The romance of South America comes to life as Principal Conductor Juanjo Mena leads a program of South American epics. Ginastera’s playful ballet music depicts a magical nighttime story, while the rhythmic energies of Villa-Lobos’ Chôros recall the raw power of his native Brazil. Venezuelan composer Antonio Estévez’s Cantata Criolla—sometimes called South America’s Carmina Burana—stars tenor and baritone soloists as a poet and the devil, in a singing contest.
The performance of Cantata criolla: Florentino, el que cantó con el Diablo will be recorded and made available to view online after the 2022 May Festival season at a date to be determined.
