The new season of the Yucatan Symphonic Orchestra starts today at 9pm, with the concert “Between waltzes and overtures”, at the “Peón Contreras” Theather.

In the beginning of each year, the great symphonic orchestras of the world usually play these waltzes that were chosen to continue with the tradition. Along with two openings of a classic author such as:

Johann Strauss:

“The Blue Danube”, it has been one of the most consistently popular pieces of music in his classical repertoire.

“The bat”, is an operetta composed by Johann Strauss II to a German libretto by writers Karl Haffner and Richard Genée.

“Tales from the Vienna Woods”, composed in 1868, G’schichten aus dem Wienerwald, op. 325 was one of six Viennese waltzes by Johann Strauss II which featured a virtuoso part for a string instrument called zither.

“Light Cavalry” by Franz Von Suppe, is the overture to Franz von Suppé’s operetta Light Cavalry premiered in Vienna in 1866. Although the operetta is rarely performed or recorded, the overture is one of Suppé’s most popular compositions.

“La Valse” by Maurice Ravel, is a complicated track with a challenge to Western civilization, which has a triumphant end.

The Symphonic Orchestra of Yucatan will play under the direction of music Director is Juan Carlos Lomónaco.

The same program will repeat on Sunday January 19 at 12 noon at the same venue.
