First Season 2017, Teatro Degollado
On Thursday the 12th and Sunday, the 15th, of March, the OFJ presents a program called Rhythms of Mexico and Spain, in which violinist Angélica Olivo interprets a Spanish-sounding and Spanish-inspired work written by a French composer: Édouard Lalo. His Symphonie Espagnole was dedicated to violinist Pablo de Sarasate. It has been said that much of the best Spanish music was written by…the French! We will listen to another example of this maxim: the suite Iberia by Claude Debussy, which sonically captures various impressions of Spain without becoming either a local or a programmatic work.
The portion of the program dedicated to the rhythms of Mexico includes a work written by an American: Aaron Copland, who in the 1930s had visited various Mexican landmarks including the most popular dance hall in Mexico City, wrote El Salón México, a sort of “musical postcard”. The work premiered in the Palacio de Bellas Artes in 1937.
To round out this program, which will be conducted by Maestro Marco Parisotto? One of the most outstanding Mexican works of recent decades: the Danzón No. 2 by Arturo Márquez.
