04 May Classical performances from South America (Part 1 of 4 – Léon Spierer)
Classical performances from South America (Part 1 of 4 – Léon Spierer)
This May, Stingray Classica is shining a spotlight on South American talent. We have a great line-up of concert premiers from two of the most prestigious stages in South America, the Academia de Música del Palacio de Minería, and the Chilean Teatro del Lago.
For the first episode of this special, we’ll showcase the 40th-anniversary celebratory concert of the Orquesta Sinfonica de Minería. This orchestra, established in 1978, is a world-class musical body organized by a group of engineers wishing to promote the arts. Featured is the soprano soloist Jéssika Arévalo.
Conducting this grand affair is Léon Spierer, former concertmaster of the Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra (1958-1963). Winner of the German Music Critics Award (1969) for his skills in conducting multiple musicals styles. He’s appeared in Mexican concerts since the late 60s.
Wednesdays Evenings in May from 9 PM on Stingray Classica (ch 332) from Wednesday, 05 May
