This program juxtaposes two heroes in their quest for an ideal: Don Quixote, the wandering knight who ventures out to battle evil on the Andalusian plains, and Florentino, a Venezuelan plainsman who wrestles with the Devil in a singing contest in Estévez’s Cantata criolla. This masterpiece of the South American repertoire, which Rafael Payare invites us to discover, concludes a richly eventful evening also featuring the world premiere of a work by OSM Composer-in-residence Ana Sokolović.
