Catán Florencia en el Amazonas Orchestra Suite
Barber Medea’s Dance of Vengeance
Aaron Copland’s El salón Mexico, an evocative tone-painting of a Mexico City dance hall, opens this program. The San Antonio Symphony features its very own brilliant concertmaster Eric Gratz in Samuel Barber’s superbly melodic Violin Concerto—its lush Romanticism a clever contrast to the same composer’s Medea’s Dance of Vengeance, his portrait of “psychological states of jealousy and vengeance which are timeless.” Orchestral excerpts from Mexican composer Daniel Catán’s tuneful Florencia en el Amazones round out this colorful program.
