Hernández-Silva, Pacho Flores and Leo Rondón meet again to continue presenting the work Cantos y Revueltas throughout the globe, this time together with Albares, the flugelhorn concerto also composed by the Spanish-Venezuelan trumpeter. On this occasion the stage is the Örebro Konserthus, where they will be accompanied by the Swedish Chamber Orchestra. The program also includes the new orchestration of Musorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition by the Swedish composer Christian Lindberg.

Premiered and recorded for Deutsche Grammophon  in January 2018 with the Real Filharmonía de Galicia at the Auditorio de Galicia, Cantos y Revueltas has already been performed in places as different as Miami, Fort Worth (Texas), Malaga, Navarre, Jalisco, Badajoz , Bogotá, Liverpool, Valencia, Valladolid, Segovia, Cuenca, Las Palmas, Montreal, Mexico City, Nicosia, Dartmouth, Tromsø and Bodø in Norway, or Raleigh (North Carolina), and after this concert in Sweden it will still come to Córdoba, Granada, Barcelona, Miami, Vail (Colorado) or Buenos Aires, most of them with the presence of Leo Rondón and the conducting of Manuel Hernández-Silva. Originally written for trumpets, Venezuelan cuatro and strings, Pacho had already arranged a version for full orchestra that was premiered in Norway. In Sweden they will perform the premiere of the classical orchestra version, which will also be heard in Granada next January.
