Manila Symphony Orchestra Presents Concerto de Aranjuez and Shostakovich 5 This February
Manila Symphony Orchestra (MSO) will wrap up their successful Live Music Lives 2019-2020 Season Gala Concerts with a grand final performance on February 5, 2020, at the Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo (CCP Main Theater), Cultural Center of the Philippines.
Aptly titled “Concerto de Aranjuez and Shostakovich No. 5,” MSO’s last season concert performance will be led by MSO Music Director and principal conductor Marlon Chen, featuring acts from Spanish guitar virtuoso Jacob Cordover.
Cordover will perform two pieces, one of which is deemed as the most popular concerto for the guitar, Joaquin Rodrigo’s “Concerto de Aranjuez.”
He will also play a closing number on the monumental “Symphony No. 5” by Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich. The Manila Symphony Orchestra will accompany Cordover on stage for both performances.
Currently residing in Barcelona, Spain, Cordover is a concert and recording artist with three critically acclaimed solo CDs under his belt.
