E. Oscher Danzas Latinas for trumpet and orchestra
I. Stravinsky Firebird, ballet music
The sounds of Cuban music inspired George Gershwin to write his famous Cuban Overture and a few decades later gave Efrain Oscher the motivation for the last movement of his Danzas Latinas. This work was specially written for trumpet player Pacho Flores, who will be joining the Belgrade Philharmonic with the young conductor Felix Mildenberger, already known to our audience. In the second part, we listen to music from Stravinsky’s ballet The Firebird, which the composer himself conducted during his historic visit to Havana in 1946.
