Patricio Jaramillo Carrillo leads this week the Symphony Orchestra of Cuenca

The Symphony Orchestra of Cuenca under the baton of Maestro Patricio Jaramillo Carrillo, Guest Conductor, presents the XVII Concert of the I Season 2017 this Friday, June 9 at the Pumapungo Theater at 8 PM, with free admission. The repertoire is as follows:

Candide Overture by Leonard Bernstein. It took immediate fame from its debut as an independent piece with the same composer at the head of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra in 1957, a success that did not obtain the complete work when it was released as operetta a year before, perhaps because it was music with an unusual sophistication To Broadway standards.

Antiche Dance Ed Aria, Suite N ° 3 P172 by Ottorino Respighi, is a set of three orchestral suites, freely transcribed from original pieces for Lute. The interest in the Italian music of the XVI, XVII and XVIII centuries of Respighi, led him to compose works inspired by the music of these times. This suite was composed in 1932. It is based on Besard lute songs, a Baroque guitar piece by Ludovico Roncalli, and pieces for Lute by Santino Garsi da Parma and other anonymous composers.
Rumanian Rhapsody OP. 11, by the Romanian composer George Enescu. A work of great beauty, energy and plasticity. The first part is a slow introduction with bucolic melodies by the flutes and violins. In the second half the dances with their audacious rhythms and brilliant orchestration create a festive and joyous atmosphere which infects the public with its overwhelming euphoria.

Rumiñahui "Poem Sinfonico" by the Ecuadorian composer Álvaro Manzano, written in 1991, is a tribute to the indigenous hero Rumiñahui defender of the territories that today constitute Ecuador before the advance of the Spaniards. Written in sonata form begins with a slow introduction, here it sounds a prehispanic pentafónico motif that will be one of the "conducting threads" of the work and creates an atmosphere of nostalgia that preludes the irruption of the conquerors, announced by the rattle and with blows Which represent the arrival of Columbus. In the Allegro stand out two main themes: the first in the warrior rhythm of Yumbo, symbolizes Rumiñahui, in the second in charge of the English horn and solo violoncello that contrasts by its bucolic and peaceful atmosphere, in the singing of the cello recognizes the Pentafónico motive of the beginning of the work. The continuous crescendo illustrates the execution of Rumiñahui.

Suite Macorix - Nostalgia From Bienvenido Bustamante, a prestigious Dominican musician, composer and arranger who won the "José Reyes National Music Award" with the Macorix Symphonic Suite, which is divided into three movements: Sunset, Nostalgia and Guloyasque Dance which describe memories and Impressions of his native Macoris. Nostalgia, begins with a single cello that presents the main theme, which after various transformations, adopts its final form and after a cadence, güiro and tambora, propose a rhythm of bolemengue (Symbiosis of bolero and merengue) Soft and melancholic.

Orfeo in Hades by Jacques Offenbach, this overture shows us the satirical orientation of the composer by means of nothing serious or solemn music, something that would be expected of a subject as "sacred" as Orpheus and Eurydice. It became an emblematic piece inside the shows of the Parisian Moulin Rouge, where it is still played. This famous dance serves as a glorious culmination of the overture, with which Offenbach displays all his irony on a subject as solemn as that of Orpheus.

Dear Friends, as always please know that everybody is cordially invited.
