Description

Seattle Symphony

Miguel Harth-Bedoya, conductor

David Requiro, cello

Donna Shin, flute

The sounds of South America come alive in this engaging multimedia presentation. Experience music inspired by the countries of the Inca trail together with breathtaking photos of the region and its people.

Works included on the program are the famous Peruvian folk song El condor pasa; Osvaldo Golijov’s Maríel for Cello and Orchestra, performed by cellist David Requiro; Jimmy López’s Fiesta!; and Gabriela Lena Frank’s Illapa, Tone Poem for Flute and Orchestra, performed by Donna Shin.

After years of collecting South American music from private homes, museums and libraries, conductor and Peru native Miguel Harth-Bedoya launched the Caminos del Inka project in order to give this exceptional music new life. “It is an effort,” he says, “to unearth forgotten musical gems, mix them with classical ones, and commission new music from these countries, thereby bringing new repertoire and new sounds to the concert hall.”

Caminos del Inka is the first concert in the 2010–2011 Around the World Series, a new programming initiative designed to explore in depth the music and culture of different regions across the globe.
