A Jacobs Masterworks Concert

Carlos Miguel Prieto, conductor
Gabriela Jiménez, percussion
Mónica Ábrego, soprano

GINASTERA: Four Dances from Estancia
GABRIELA ORTIZ: Concierto Voltaje for Timpani and Orchestra (U.S. Premiere)
FALLA: El sombrero de tres picos (Three-Cornered Hat)

This fascinating Jacobs Masterworks program is enriched by portrayals of rancho life on two different continents. The rhythmically rich, innocent courting rituals of Alberto Ginastera's charming and blazing Estancia Dances from the Argentinian pampas is contrasted with a more worldly (though equally humorous) Spanish village love triangle in Manuel de Falla's El sombrero de tres picos (Three-Cornered Hat). The concert also features the United States premiere of a Concierto Voltaje for Timpani and Orchestra by one of today's leading Mexican composers, Gabriela Ortiz. (Read more about her here.)


This program will also be performed in San Ysidro on Saturday, November 21, 2015
