Largo and Allegro de la Serenata N° 10 for Winds in B Flat major, K361 Gran Partita. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The parts for wind instruments were works composed to liven up lunches and dinners, and were written in a light and lively tone. In this little part, Mozart broke all the genre schemes by writing a work of extraordinary richness and musicality. The timbral specificity of the wind instruments is enhanced by Mozart in sections of dialogue between the various instruments, both in the Adagio and in the variations and in the lively final Rondo “.

Idyll of Siegfried. Richard Wagner. It is a chamber composition (for a small orchestra) completed at Villa Triebschen on December 4, 1870, celebrating the birth of his son Siegfried Wagner (1869) and his marriage to Cósima Liszt (1879). Wagner himself directed the premiere of the play that had been secretly rehearsed by Hans Richter twenty-one days later for Cósima’s birthday, who was turning 33 years old on Christmas Day 1870.

Festive Andante. Jean Sibelius. It is a composition originally written for a string quartet in 1922. In 1938, the composer reorchestrated the piece for a string orchestra and timpani. On January 1, 1939 Sibelius directed his live composition of him that was broadcast worldwide, making it the only sound document of the composer conducting his own music.

Dawn of Hope. José Elizondo. The dawn of hope was composed in 2018 for two world events of great importance: the centenary of the Armistice that marked the end of World War I that was celebrated in Paris in November 2018 and the World Youth Day held in Panama in January 2019. The theme of this work on hope has had a particular relevance during the Covid-19 pandemic, as numerous musicians have performed the work in many places on the planet because the message it has is related to current reality. The great poet Rafael Z. Flores (Mexico) put lyrics to this work and the lyrics make the message even more present and more powerful. Both the orchestral version and the vocal version are performed.
