Third Orchestra Season, 2017, Teatro Degollado
We celebrate Mexican Independence Day with works by composers who have been able to strike a balance between tradition and innovative personal expression. The festivities begin with the winner of the Jalisco prize in the 2016 National Composers Competition, "Mariachitlan" by talented Jalisco native composer Juan Pablo Contreras. This program will also give us an opportunity to enjoy the world´s best known and most frequently interpreted Mexican concert piece, José Pablo Moncayo´s immortal "Huapango".
In any concert which celebrates the Mexican symphonic repertoire, Silvestre Revueltas must always be included. His "Sensemayá" and "La noche de los Mayas" are on this program. We also welcome distinguished Mexican cellist, author, and academic Carlos Prieto, who will interpret the Concerto for Violoncello by Arturo Márquez, “Espejos en la Arena” ("Mirrors in the Sand") on his "Cello Prieto" ("Dark Cello"), a Stradivarius.
This program is part of the festivities which celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Seminario de Cultura Mexicana.
