Andrea Bacchetti again with the Symphony Orchestra of Cuenca

The Symphony Orchestra of Cuenca under the baton of Maestro Michael Meissner, Principal Director, presents the II Concert of the II Season 2017 with the participation of the brilliant Italian pianist, Andrea Bacchetti, who is again guest soloist, this Friday, September 15 in the theater Pumapungo at 8 PM with the entrance free.

The repertoire is as follows:

Hail, Hail Great Lady! by Luis Humberto Salgado. Compilation of a popular song that dates from the time of Independence, which later became a religious theme dedicated to the "Virgin Mary", which the composer transcribed and orchestrated around 1947, possibly as a part of his "El Amaño" .
Piece Feature by Luis Humberto Salgado. This typical air composed in 1950, is a short work that begins with a solo of trumpet and soon presents / displays the innate rhythm of this Ecuadorian genre (Typical Air), on which generates a melodic motif that presents in the different registers of the orchestra increasing its textural density, maintaining the spirit and the traditional characteristic of this genre.

Concerto for piano and orchestra No. 2 in B flat major, Op. 19 by Ludwig van Beethoven. Virtuous and demanding composition that served as a showpiece for Beethoven after moving from Bonn to Vienna, who was the soloist in its premiere the 29 of March of 1795, in the Burgtheater of Vienna in a concert that marked its debut in public. Before that, he had only played it in the private salons of the Viennese court. While the work as a whole follows Mozart's style, there is a sense of drama and contrast that would be present in many later works by Beethoven.

Symphonic dances, Op. 45 by Sergei Rachmaninov. Orchestral suite in three movements. Completed in 1940, it is the last composition of Rachmáninov. The work summarizes the style of composition in more than one way and is fully representative of the late style of the composer with its curious, changing melodies, grotesque central movements and the focus of the color of each instrument throughout the work. The Dances evoke the nostalgia of his beloved Russia who abandoned after the Bolshevik Revolution, the fascination for ecclesiastical issues that he had throughout his life. His music will also be marked by the characteristic motifs of Russian secular music.

Dear Friends, as always please know that everyone is cordially invited
