Mariana Gómez presents The Color of the Mexican Guitar, a program with musics from Bolio, García de León, Oliva, Gómez, y Ponce.
During this concert you will be able to listen to works by Consuelo Bolio, whose musical poem is a canvas in the style of Frida Kahlo or Remedios Varo that refers to the serene beauty of cool-jazz ballads; the sounds of the night of Veracruz in the music of Ernesto García de León; the full happiness that exudes – in the manner of Chopin – Sonata del Amor by Julio César Oliva; Jaime Gómez’s pieces that evoke luminous Purépecha afternoons; and by Manuel M. Ponce – composer of works such as Estrellita – Sonata Mexicana, composed at the request of Andrés Segovia and where Mexican folk motifs can be heard to paint this sound canvas as if it were a vast and majestic landscape by José María Velasco.
