Jose Luis Gomez conducts the LPO in a concert featuring pieces that incorporate traditional and folk melodies from around the world. We start off in Venezuela with Carreño’s Margariteña, which features famous popular Venezuelan tunes fueled by traditional Venezuelan rhythms. Sixteen-time GRAMMY Award-winning banjoist, Béla Fleck, is then welcomed to the stage to premiere his Banjo Concerto, newly commissioned by the LPO in celebration of the New Orleans Tricentennial. The concert concludes with Ottorino Respighi’s Pines of Rome, which recalls memories of children’s songs and hymns in Roman life.
