Fran, Franck, ¡Fiesta!
We conclude our 2023 Fall season with another contrasting concert in collaboration with violinist Francine Trester, featuring our Latin American favorites followed by the French Romantic Cesar Franck’s Violin Sonata. This concert features works from living composers from across Latin America, beginning with Mexican composers Abraham Gomez and Nubia Jaime Donjuan. Next we will feature two Kalliope commissions, Miguel del Aguila’s Transoceanica, musically depicting an adventurous bus ride from Rio to Lima, Peru, followed by Peruvian/American composer Daniel Cueto’s Amaru, inspired by the Peruvian Deity and featured on our upcoming album! In the second half we will switch to something completely different with the beloved Violin Sonata by French Romantic composer Cesar Franck, with violinist Francine Trester, and arranged for Reed Quintet and violin by the Calefax Quintet. Admission free, this concert is made possible with the support of the Newton Free Library.
