Join the Rhythm

With Spring around the corner, the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra with the participation of the children of Sistema Cyprus and guest conductor Gerardo Estrada Martinez help us get into the rhythm with folk or folk-based dances by Dvořák and Bartók, while “Fugue with a Little Bird” by Venezuelan composer Aldemaro Romero (1928-2007) has been described as “one of the most beautiful pieces one can hear in one’s lifetime”. It’s back to the Baroque however with Jean-Philippe Rameau’s opera-ballet “Les Indes Galantes”, while anybody who’s seen the film “Madagascar” will have no difficulty recognizing the main theme as written by contemporary composer Hans Zimmer. Join in the rhythm then!
