Cuenca Symphony Orchestra V concert of the second season, 2017, with two guests

The Symphony Orchestra of Cuenca, under the baton of Maestro Stefan Fraas (Germany), Guest Conductor, with the participation of the young and talented Ecuadorian cornista, Cristian Tacuri Álvarez, presents the V Concert of the Second Season this Friday, October 13th at 8 PM at the Pumapungo Theater with free entrance. The repertoire is as follows:

Gli Uccelli-Ottorino Respighi This work was composed in 1927, based on the music of the 17th and 18th centuries. The intention of its author was to transcribe the song of the birds in musical notation. The author of "Los pájaros" was the most important Italian composer of the 20th century, together with Puccini; nevertheless, it counts on several works whose creation cannot be totally attributed to him, since they are orchestrations realized by the composer on works of other authors and that originally were conceived for certain specific instruments. The Preludio is based on a piece by the Italian composer of the XVII century, called Bernardino Pasquini. The second movement is an orchestration of a piece by Frenchman Jacques de Gallot, entitled "The Dove." The third part of the suite, titled "The Hen", is made on the famous piece for key of the French composer Jean Philippe Rameau and is, perhaps, the most brilliant moment of the whole work. The fourth, titled "The Nightingale", comes from the work of an English composer of the seventeenth century. And the last section, named "El cuco", is also based on a work by Pasquini.

Concerto No. 1 for horn, Richard Strauss. Between 1882 and 1883 Richard Strauss composed his first concert for horn. This work is born from the father of the author, Franz Joseph Strauss, who was not only the first horn of the Munich Court Orchestra but also one of the best performers of his instrument throughout Germany. Richard Strauss conceived the first of his two concerts specifically for his father. However, Franz Joseph Strauss in his sixties found the soloist part of his son's concert too difficult to play himself, so this first concert for horn had to be premiered by the Cornetist Gustav Leinhos. This concert of horn became the most played work of its sort of century XIX.

Symphony in D minor-César Franck The first performance of this work was on February 17, 1889, a year and a half before the death of the composer. Franck dedicated this work to his disciple and good friend, the composer Henri Duparc. The symphony is written in such a way that the motif of three notes we hear at the beginning is the thematic element that is maintained throughout the first movement, and was incorporated into the main themes of the following movements, to finally return in its form original in the coda of the third and final movement, taking a role of "Leitmotiv" ("guiding motive") for the whole symphony. Two great traditions were combined in this work: his symphonic form follows Beethoven's model, while his harmonic language is characteristic of Wagner, inventor of the Leitmotiv technique, with all the harmonic advances of nineteenth-century romanticism. However, Franck imposes his own musical language and creates one of the most important symphonies of French nationalism, precursor of the Impressionist movement of Debussy and contemporaries.

We reiterate our invitation to the citizenship and we are waiting for you to enjoy this great concert.
