Catriona Young introduces a mix of European and Latin American repertoire, played by both the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, a thread which will be explored throughout the whole week. Today, the programme starts in Sao Paulo with a contemporary Brazilian composer, Paul Costa Lima, and his 'Cabinda: Nos Somos Pretos', a symphonic overture commissioned recently by the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra (Osesp), premiered by today's conductor Marin Alsop, the ensemble's Principal Conductor. It's followed by Chopin's First Piano Concerto with Denis Kozhukhin as soloist, and then Prokofiev's Sixth Symphony. Then comes the Mexican conductor Alondra de la Parra, at the helm of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, for more Latin American music. First, Piazzolla's Tangazo, which is followed by Ginastera's dances from his ballet Estancia.
