Greetings from Latin America: Violinist James Ehnes
Hilbert Circle Theatre
From conductors to composers to musicians, Latin America has given the classical music world an abundance of talent. This upbeat concert touts the Latin American connection, from the Mexican style and Indian themes of Symphony No. 2, to Oblivion by Argentine tango composer Astor Piazzolla, to the Brazillian themes used by Darius Milhaud. Violinist James Ehnes weaves his way through the pieces, including the Violin Concerto by Afro-Cuban violinist and composer José White Lafitte.
