This program is the perfect complement to the Somerville Museum's seasonal exhibit Bittersweet, curated by two leading artists from Colombia and Peru. After a quick introduction in Mexico with Danzon no. 5 by Arturo Marquez, our program tours South America south to north starting in Argentina with Astor Piazzolla's Tango Suite. Next we perform Transoceanica by Miguel del Aguila (Uruguay) - musically depicting a bus adventure from Rio Brazil to Lima Peru. After arriving in Peru we will perform two works we commissioned by Pervian composer Daniel Cueto: Momentos Peruanos and Amaru, and complete the program with a brand new arrangement of Colombian composer Luis A. Calvo's Lejano Azul. A short clip of Daniel Cueto's Momentos Peruanos can be heard here: https://youtu.be/EK_M-g1bzyI
