With its 10th concert, the Concepción Symphony Orchestra finished the 2015 season. The performance was an homage to the 150 years of the University of Concepción School of Law, and took place on Saturday, November 21st at 19:00 in the UdeC Theater.
Principal Conductor Julian Kuerti led the orchestra, and Corey Cerovsek was the violin soloist in a sparkling performance of the difficult ‘Symphonie espagnole’. The ensuing applause of the enthusiastic audience had to be quenched by the soloist with a highly virtuosic piece by Kreisler and another one by Bach.
The Concepción Symphony Orchestra also played Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Overture to ‘La clemenza di Tito’. This concert was also the historical reencounter of the Concepción audience with the first Chilean symphony, composed by Enrique Soro, a native of our city. The ‘Sinfonía romántica’ was premiered in 1921 in Santiago, and it was performed the following year by the Berlin Phiharmonic. Soro introduced it in Concepción in the 1940s. In the present occasion, our orchestra performed a new critical edition of the score.
