Celebrate the heritage of Frida Kahlo through the rhythm and sounds of Mexico, in anticipation of the major exhibit of her works to be held right here at the MAC in June 2020.
Selection of works by Mexican born composers include the beautiful melodies of Agustin Lara’s Granada and Zumaya’s Comp Aunque Culpa and the intoxicating and percussive dance rhythms of Arturo Marquez’s Danzon and Silvestre Revueltas Sanchez’ Noche de Encantamiento. Concluding our musical journey into the Latin American sounds of Frida Kahlo’s world, film composer Luis Bacalov’s Misa Tango sets the traditional mass to the dance rhythms of the tango. This work features soprano and tenor vocalists, a 100-voice chorus, as well as the bandoneon accordion known for driving the sultry sound of the tango.
Presented by New Philharmonic
