Westminster Symphonic Choir: Villa-Lobos’s Chôros No. 10 and Estevez’s Cantata criolla
Westminster Symphonic Choir joins the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, conducted by the charismatic Gustavo Dudamel, to dive into the deep wells of Latin America’s classical music tradition with such works as Villa-Lobos’s Chôros No. 10—a monumental piece of Brazilian musical nationalism that was a huge hit at its 1926 premiere in Rio de Janeiro—and Estévez’s Cantata criolla, a portrait of the Venezuelan spirit.
