Stockton Symphony Classics 4 – Guest Artist: Guillermo Figueroa

Overview

Inspired by Afro-Caribbean rhythms, Insula Tropical is a vibrant, dazzling melodic ex- ploration of Puerto Rican terrain. Guillermo Figueroa will enchant you with his interpretation of this dramatic concerto.

The Linz Symphony’s slow introduction blazes into a rich large-scale and wittily elegant piece with a brilliant nale that will leave you invigorated.

Paying homage to Bach and Beethoven, Schumann’s Symphony No. 2 was also rooted in the crisis of his personal life. A deeply sonorous introduction masterfully segues into an edgy melody finishing with joyous sound and fury that will leave you enthralled.

Concert Tidbits

  • Guest artist Guillermo Figueroa is multi-talented! In addition to being a guest conductor for numerous symphonies both nationally and internationally, Figueroa is a renowned violinist and founding member of the world-renowned Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.
  • Figueroa and Puerto Rican composer Ernesto Cordero collaboration on the CD Caribbean Concertos for Guitar and for Violin (Naxos) was nominated for ‘Best Classical Album’ at the XIII Latin Grammy Awards. The CD contains two concertos for violin and orchestra by Ernesto Cordero with Guillermo Figueroa performing as violin soloist.
  • Mozart composed Symphony No. 36 in late 1783 during a stopover in the Austrian town of Linz on his and his wife’s way to Vienna. Mozart’s visit was to reconcile the relationship between himself and his father which was torn apart due to his father’s disapproval of his marriage to his wife Constanze Weber. The entire symphony was written in four days.
  • The composition of Schumann’s Symphony No. 2 was plagued by his chronic struggle with mental and physical health issues when suddenly, his creativity soared and in the space of approximately three weeks he composed the symphony – he tackled the orchestration the following year.
