Corsino Durán and Johannes Brahms are our protagonists this week

With the Ecuadorian Fantasy of Corsino Durán Carrión and the Fourth Symphony of Johannes Brahms, the Symphony Orchestra of Cuenca under the baton of Michael Meissner - Titular Director, presents his IV Concert of the Second Season 2019, on Thursday 26 at the Matriz de Gualaceo Church, thanks to the invitation of the Gualaceo Extension of the Casa de la Cultura Núcleo del Azuay that celebrates its anniversary; and on Friday 27 at the Old Cathedral, the two events are at 8 PM with free entrance until full capacity is filled.

Ecuadorian Fantasy. Corsino Durán Carrión. Michael Meissner, editor of this important composition of the Ecuadorian pentagram tells us: “Ecuadorian Fantasy is an unfinished work, the editor had to add a blunt ending (taken from the same work), he also worked on the dynamics, he completed the percussion part and corrected a few errors in the notes. However, he believes that the work shows Durán's masterful harmonic management, which elevates the melodies of folklore cut to the level of a symphonic poem of high value that encompasses a wide range of Ecuadorian nationalist sentiment, from melancholic moments to the festive.”

Symphony No. 4 in e minor, op. 98. Johannes Brahms. Composed during the summer of 1884. This is perhaps the work - says Karl Geiringer - “in which Brahms is more withdrawn, and yet freer: the language of the Symphony in e minor is partially written using pieces of scores very previous and nevertheless produces an effect of daring novelty.” The Fourth Symphony of Brahms is a musical building constructed in a very simple way that enjoys a beauty, a power and a majesty rarely matched. This music leads us, in the words of Krestzchmar, to "penetrate the kingdom where joy and pain remain silent and humility bows to what is eternal."
