Second Orchestra Season, 2018, Teatro Degollado

 

It´s not often that the international stage has the privilege of witnessing an entire family of musicians performing together.  In this program, the OFJ welcomes the return of the piano duo of Christine Gerwig (Germany) and Efraín González Ruano (Mexico), who have presented concerts in Mexico--and in some of the principal European concert venues, as well.  They will regale us with the Concerto for two pianos and orchestra No.10 in E-flat major, K. 365, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a work which was apparently conceived with the idea of the composer and his father performing it together.  However, we now know that this Concerto was performed by the piano duo of Wolfgang and his sister Nannerl on various occasions. To continue the Mozart family celebration, the González-Gerwig piano duo will unite with their young son, Alejandro, in an interpretation of the Concerto for three pianos No.7 in F major, K. 242 by--who else?  The very same Mozart.

 

To complement these concerti, the OFJ will offer two scores with warlike tones:  the symphonic poem "The battle of the Huns" by Franz Liszt was inspired by a painting which shows King Attila of the Huns in an epic battle against the Romans and the Visigoths;

Likewise, Wellington´s Victory, battle symphony by Ludwig van Beethoven, was written in 1813 to commemorate the triumph of the forces of the Duke of Wellington against the French army. 

This program may be seen and heard on the 5th and 8th of July under the baton of Guest Conductor Ricardo Casero Garrigues.
