The Fresno Philharmonic gets in a Latin mood this weekend with “I Got Rhythm,” a concert celebrating American and Latin American rhythms. Guest pianist Orion Weiss is featured. From the Philharmonic:
The concert will feature Gershwin’s Cuban Overture, Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas’ La Noche de los Mayas. The program also includes two compositions, Oscar Lorenzo Fernandez’s Batuque and Arturo Marquez’s Danzon No. 2 from the album “Latin American Rhythms” recorded by Maestro Kuchar with the Orquesta Sinfónica de Venezuela and nominated for a Latin Grammy Award for best instrumental album. Mr. Weiss will join the orchestra to perform Gershwin’s I Got Rhythm Variations and Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G.
