A Tribute to Two Latin American Masters: Ernesto Lecuona and Manuel Ponce
During the first thirty years of the 20th century, Ernesto Lecuona and Manuel Ponce not only built on the folk traditions of their countries, but they also created musical innovations that are ingrained in the cultural identities of Cuba, Mexico, and Latin America as a whole. In this program, Toomai will perform original arrangements of Lecuona's and Ponce's important piano works, along with works by composers who were influenced by these icons of Latin American music.
