In this concert, the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra is happily joined by three exceptional Venezuelan musicians: the internationally renowned conductor Manuel Hernández–Silva, the sensational trumpet virtuoso Pacho Flores and the amazing guitarist and cuatro player Jesús ‘Pingüino’ González.
Schubert’s delightful Sixth Symphony will open the concert. The captivating artistry of Pacho Flores will shine in the works by Latin American composers that follow: Heterónimos, composed by Flores himself, Villa-Lobos’ popular Bachianas Brasileiras no. 5 fusing baroque elements with Brazilian tunes and Piazzolla’s Revirado, a high-spirited tango piece.
In Pacho Flores’ Cantos y Revueltas, based on Venezuelan folk tunes and work chants, the famous trumpeter is joined by the wonderful Jesús ‘Pingüino’ González on the cuatro – a small Venezuelan guitar-like instrument – rounding off the programme in an invigorating Venezuelan vibe!
