The amazing trumpet player Pacho Flores will premiere the new Trumpet concerto dedicated to him by composer Giancarlo Castro with the Ulster Orchestra under the baton of its Chief Conductor Rafael Payare. This premiere will take place at the Ulster Hall of Belfast on next February the 23rd. Pacho Flores has obtained a huge success with the recent premiere of his own piece Cantos y Revueltas just one month ago with Manuel Hernández-Silva, Leo Rondón and the Real Filharmonía de Galicia, and “bringing to dance the whole Palacio Euskalduna” with Alondra de la Parra and the Bilbao Symphony Orchestra. Shortly he will be in Norway to record his third release for the label Deutsche Grammophon, with the Arctic Philharmonic Orchestra and Christian Lindberg.
Between his next engagements stands out the large project of commissions of new trumpet concertos to prominent composer as Arturo Márquez, Roberto Sierra, Paquito D’Rivera, Efraín Oscher or Christian Lindberg, to be premieres for many orchestras all around the world. First of the commissions, to the Mexican composer Arturo Márquez, will have its premieres along the 2018/19 season in Mexico, the US, Japan and Spain. Besides this project, that season he will also premiere a new Double concerto for trumpet, trombone and orchestra by Christian Lindberg with a Spanish orchestra, where Christian will also appear as a conductor.
These new commissions will take part of new releases for Deutsche Grammophon. In addition, new engagements will bring him along the next months to Norway, Switzerland, Canada, the Netherlands, US, France, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Brazil, and two new tours with the Arctic Philharmonic and the Israel NK Orchestra are already scheduled to bring him again to Norway, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Spain, where it will finish with three concerts in Alicante, Valencia and Oviedo in November 2018.
