Danish musician Carl Nielsen has become the most famous composer in his country. The “Aladdin” suite is, among his works, the one with the most presentations all over the world. The third part of the suite, the Hindu Dance, will be performed in this concert.
There follows a ballet, and perhaps one of the most popular of all time - “The Nutcracker” by Piotr Tchaikovsky. From this Orchestral Suite, we will hear Trepak, Arab Dance and Chinese Dance, which portray the most fun moments of ballet.
Béla Bartók has always shown great interest in the Romanian folk tradition that he considered to be endowed with great authenticity. In ‘Romanian Folk Dances, Sz. 68’ we find some examples of the rhythms that characterize the typical dances of Romania.
And the journey continues through South America with the suite “Saudades do Brasil, Op. 67”. Written by composer Darius Milhaud, this suite contains twelve dances inspired by Samba or Tango, and their titles reflect the names of places in Brazil.
Of all the music composed by Leonard Bernstein, it is the musical theatre pieces that best summarize the character of his work, and those included in “West Side Story” are the most consistently melodious. In this case, the composer adapted the classic "Romeo and Juliet" to the reality of the New York criminal underworld in the 1950s.
