Peter Lieberson Neruda Songs
Alberto Ginastera Variaciones concertantes

Experience the breadth of human emotion in this evocative program conducted by Carlos Miguel Prieto. Indulge in the drama of Haydn’s intense and thrilling “Passion” Symphony before immersing yourself in the love-filled world of Pablo Neruda’s poetry with Peter Lieberson’s Neruda Songs, sung by rich-voiced mezzo-soprano J’Nai Bridges. Hear members of the Festival Orchestra in a new light in Ginastera’s electric Variaciones concertantes. Written in 1953 when the Argentine composer was having his own political clashes with his country’s dictator, the work spotlights different musicians of the ensemble in each of the 12 variations.

Run time: approximately 2 hours
