Derived from the famous ballet “The Three-Cornered Hat”, this orchestral suite brings thrilling Andalusian folk music to the stage. Experience Bizet's Carmen Suite in a great arrangement for percussion and strings by Russian composer Rodion Shchedrin, as well as Daugherty’s colorful violin concerto led by dynamic young guest conductor, Carlos Miguel Prieto, and featuring rising violin star, Alexandre Da Costa. Moncayo’s Huapango is an arrangement for orchestra inspired by the popular dance music of the Gulf of Mexico region and a thrilling conclusion to the concert.
Prieto serves in four music directorships, including Mexico’s most important orchestra, the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional de Mexico, in his native country, and also in the re-emerging Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra in New Orleans, where he leads the cultural renewal of ravaged New Orleans. A graduate of both Harvard and Princeton Universities, Mr. Prieto has conducted over 50 world premieres of works by Mexican and American composers.
Award-winning violinist Alexandre Da Costa was recognized by age nine as a musical prodigy for his astonishing musical abilities. He continues to perform with prestigious orchestras including the London Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal, and the Vienna Symphony.
