Programme

Original music inspired by Bernstein
Première
Commissioned by Stresa Festival
In collaboration with “Los Veranos De la Villa” in Madrid

This concert comes under the heading “America Oggi – Omaggio a Bernstein”. One hundred years exactly from his birth,  Leonard Bernstein’s name still arouses lively interest and sincere devotion in the whole world of music – and draws a vast public!   This reflects his ability to transmit on stage – in his multiple roles as a composer, conductor and pianist – a convincing capacity for communication like few others in the 20th century.  His approach to often-complex scores made them easier to grasp, and his rare talent as a  teacher made him a reference for generations of listeners. The pianist and composer Moisés P. Sánchez has dedicated this concert entirely to Bernstein, elaborating the music in an original jazzy key.   He is backed by an ensemble whose execution of these pieces, and their ability to improvise, has gained them great prestige.
