Pacho Flores figures unquestionably among the most illustious trumpeters currently active on the international stage. This concert will see him lead an ensemble of 16 musicians, all playing brass and percussion, in a demonstration of strength, unity and technical agility. The program features a variety of works from the Americas together with Pablo de Sarasate’s poignant Aires Gitanos, in which listeners can appreciate the bright, blended and versatile sounds of the brass as well as the vigorous, diverse and subtle sounds of the percussion instruments.
