Marin Alsop conducts Assad, Chopin and Mahler – With Nelson Freire São Paulo State Symphony Orchestra

About

The São Paulo State Symphony is live on medici.tv, and joins forces with the country's best-known musician: the pianist Nelson Freire.

Under the theme of the interaction between high and popular arts, the São Paulo orchestra presents an original programme in which the emblematic Mahler's First Symphony, with its reminiscences of a popular folk tone, meets a contemporary composition, Terra Brasilis, piece composed by the rising star Clarice Assad (Aaron Copland award, ASCAP award, ...). Subtitled "Fantasia sobre o Hino nacional," Terra Brasilis draws its inspiration from the Brazilian national anthem, composed by Francisco Manuel da Silva in 1822, and combines the exploration of new sonorities with the Rossini accents of the original composition.
