This week, from two very different worlds, a Mexican violin concerto and an Brazilian oboe concerto, created 20 years apart. The violin concert was the last major work of noted composer Manuel Ponce, written for and dedicated to violinist Henryk Szeryng. Our program features the last recording made by Mr. Szeryng.
Brenno Blauth, a Brazilian composer from the banks of the Amazon, wrote this beautiful oboe concerto, one of the mainstays of the concert oboist’s literature. Arcadio Minczuk
performs with the Orchestra of Sao Paulo under the batton of his brother, Roberto Minczuk.
