It’s a Friday for giveaways, Queridos!
The final chapter of the Las Américas Festival is a smorgasbord of sounds and styles. Two sides of legendary composer-conductor Leonard Bernstein’s greatest masterpieces are presented: his symphonic suite from the Oscar-winning film On the Waterfront and his sacred work set to biblical texts Chichester Psalms, featuring the San Antonio Symphony Mastersingers. Tango-king Astor Piazzolla’s soulful concerto for bandoneón, Aconcagua, and Arturo Márquez’s toe-tapping Danzón No. 2 add Latin zest to the proceedings.
Juan Pablo Jofre, bandoneón
Symphony Mastersingers — John Silantien, director
Bernstein Chichester Psalms
Piazzolla Aconcagua, Concerto for Bandoneón
Bernstein On the Waterfront: Symphonic Suite
Arturo Márquez Danzón No. 2
The bandoneon (or bandonion, Spanish: bandoneón) is a type of concertina particularly popular in Argentina, Uruguay, and Lithuania. It is an essential instrument in most tango ensembles from the traditional orquesta típica of the 1910s onwards, and in folk music ensembles of Lithuania.
