Viva Americas Concert
with violin soloist Mikhail Shmidt
Sunday, Feb 25 at 2:30 pm
St Stephen’s Episcopal Church, Seattle
Our Latin American concert is filled with exhilarating colors and rhythms! In addition to our new commission by young Mexican composer, Osvaldo Mendoza, you’ll hear pieces by two of the best-known Mexican composers, Silvestre Revueltas and Arturo Márquez. Janitzio depicts the beautiful Mexican landscape, while Danzón No. 2 paints a vibrant folk dance. Inspired by Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Astor Piazzolla’s violin concerto, Las Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas (Four Seasons in Buenos Aires), combines quotations from the Baroque masterpiece with passionate tangos.
