Why See Los Angeles Philharmonic - Chamber Music from Latin America?
A rousing program of Latin American chamber works
Lose yourself in the bouncing rhythms, sun-drenched melodies and passionate performance style of a trio of Latin American chamber works as performed by members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. The exciting program kicks off with French Argentine singer Carlos Gardel's 'Por una Cabeza', an iconic 1935 tango song specially arranged for four cellos. It's name is taken from the Spanish horse-racing phrase meaning 'by a head', referring to its story about a horse-track gambler who compares his racing addiction to his ardour towards women.
This is followed by Heitor Villa-Lobos' Quinteto em forme de choros, a single-movement work fro flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and English horn composed in 1928 with the intention of popularising the traditional Brazilian urban musical of his homeland's heritage. The evening comes to a close with the stunning world premiere of Mexican composer Gabriela Ortiz's Pico-Bite-Eat.
