Date & Time






    1 min note

    One Minute Note

    Roberto Sierra’s Fandangos, titled after the lively partner dance from Spain and Portugal, is what the composer calls a “super-fandango” drawing on his fascination with other composers’ fandango music mixed with his own Baroque-style musings, contemporary sonorities and imaginative orchestration.


    Gypsy Airs

    1 min note

    One Minute Note

    A riveting lament, embellished with an array of trills and dramatic ornamentation, leads to a furious, brilliant and breathtaking conclusion in the soloist’s own trumpet transcription of a showpiece originally spotlighting violin.


    Concierto de Otoño for Trumpet and Orchestra

    1 min note

    One Minute Note

    Composed in 2018 specially for Pacho Flores, the Concierto de Otoño (Autumn Concerto) calls for four types of trumpet, merging Latin musical styles with the traditional fast-slow-fast concerto form, opening with an Afro-Cuban dance-infused dialogue between soloist and orchestra, continuing with a love song told in continuous variations, and concluding with a blazingly brilliant rondo.


    Symphony No. 8

    1 min note

    One Minute Note

    Dvořák’s Eighth is full of luminous melodies and unexpected harmonic shifts. The second movement alludes to the funeral march of Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony, but lighter elements prevail in a whirlwind finale that is delightfully Czech.
