The artistic head of the orchestra, maestro Juan Carlos Lomónaco, will direct this New Year’s concert from the podium at the Peón Contreras Theater, where the prevention health protocols will be applied to the orchestra’s musicians and assistants in order to achieve a stay safe and everyone can enjoy the music.

The gala concert will inaugurate the 14 programs of the OSY Concert Season 37, which this year has an attractive repertoire with works by renowned authors from various periods and styles such as Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky, among others.

The presence of great piano virtuosos such as the Spanish Enrique Bagaría and the American Alex McDonald, as well as the Czech flutist Lenka Smolcakova and the Mexican violinist Osvaldo Urbieta will involve memorable interpretations for the public.

Well-known guest conductors such as the Polish Adam Klocek and the Americans Stefan Sanders and Robert Carter Austin, as well as the Mexican Jesús Medina, will give luster to the cycle of artistic presentations designed by maestro Lomónaco with the support of the Guarantor Trust and the Orchestra’s Board of Trustees.

Compositions by notable authors such as Telemann, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Wagner, Rossini, Ravel and Respighi are part of the season, which will total 28 concerts with 42 musical masterpieces.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is one of the central figures of this new 2022 concert cycle, since the OSY plans to perform the overtures “La Clemenza di Tito” and “The Magic Flute”, and the symphonies 29, 35, 40 and 41, “ Jupiter”.

Ludwig van Beethoven is another of the great composers that cannot be missed throughout the season, in such a way that the Yucatecan symphony will present the “Egmont” Overture, the “Leonora” Overture No. 3, the Concert No. 5 for piano and orchestra, “Emperador” –with Enrique Bagaría as soloist- and Symphony No. 8.

The music of Franz Joseph Haydn, representative composer of classicism, also called “Father of the symphony”, will have space in three programs, since the OSY will perform his symphonies No. 49, “The Passion”, No. 97 and No. 101, “The Clock”.

There are six French composers who will have a place in this series: Maurice Ravel (Tzigane, Rhapsody for violin and orchestra, Pavana for a deceased infanta and Suite “Mamá La Oca”); Claude Debussy (Prelude to the Siesta of a Faun); Jacques Ibert (Flute Concerto); Camille Saint-Saëns (Introduction and Rondo Caprichoso, Op.28), Francis Poulenc (Sinfonietta) and Gabriel Fauré (Bergamasque Masks).

Of course, the Germans are inevitable in the repertoire, since works by Richard Wagner, Félix Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms will be included, without missing those of Beethoven and the genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, as well as the great exponent of the baroque, Georg Philipp Telemann. Austrian Franz Schubert will also be included.

Italian authors will also be part of the symphony’s musical selection to present in the first half of 2022: Gioachino Rossini and Ottorino Respighi.

The music of the Russian Piotr Ilich Tchaikovsky –with whose Symphony No. 5 the OSY will close its season-, the Hungarian Zoltán Kodály and the Czech Antonín Dvořák cannot be missing either.
