Cuenca Symphony Orchestra presents Russian conductor and Austrian violinist this week.

The Symphony Orchestra of Cuenca under the baton of maestro Yuri Ilynov (Russia), guest conductor and with the participation of the great violinist, Wolfgang David (Austria), guest soloist, presents its eighteenth Concert I Season 2016, on Friday, 8 July, in the Pumapungo theater at 8 PM with free entry.

The repertoire for this event is the Concerto in A Minor, OP. 53 for violin and orchestra  by Antonín Dvořák with Wolfgang David (Austria) as guest soloist and Scheherazade by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.

The concerto in A minor, op. 53 for violin and orchestra by Antonín Dvořák, is very rich in ditties and to be played by skilled violinists. Although not one of the best works of Dvorak, this concerto remains an important entry in the repertoire of violin techniques and virtuosic piece for solo requirements. It has been, since its release, one of the most famous and most often interpreted virtuoso selection.

Scheherazade of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov has always exercised his magic on the public, both at the time of its composition (1888) as today. Under a blanket of velvety melodies and charming sonorities, lies a logical and solid musical structure. It is a very original composition, high strength, and it opened important avenues for music of the past century. The form of the work is not easy to describe. It is an evocation of fantasy and realism of "The Arabian Nights" famous medieval collection in Arabic traditional tales of the Middle East.

Dear friends, always, you know you are all cordially invited.

Ms. Ana Vázquez Dávila.
