More Info:

The rich variety of colors and rhythms in South American culture and music are an essential feature of this program, which focuses largely on music by composers from the Ecuadorian Andes. Opening with Durán's popular and crowd-pleasing Leyenda incásica, the theme of Ecuadorian dances continues in Jacinto Freire's Suite, which also celebrates the flight of the condor. Virtuosity, evocations of landscape and expressive traditional songs can all be found here, concluding with Mexican composer Samuel Zyman's internationally acclaimed FluteSonataNo.1, which ranges from lyrical introspection to intensely contrapuntal dialogue.
