New Mexico Philharmonic Concert: From Bach to Bachianas & Britten

Overview
Music Director Roberto Minczuk wields the baton in a glimmering afternoon of globe-spanning masterworks by renowned composers. Piazzolla's Libertango and Oblivion bring "Tango Nuevo" to the forefront. Bachianas Brasileiras by Villa-Lobos links Brazilian popular music to Baroque works - such as those of Bach, one of which is included in this concert. Also, an homage to Benjamin Britten by Arvo Pärt and the purity of Britten's own Simple Symphony.
