Pepe Romero, Guitar Soloist
The Romeros, Guitar Quartet
Joining forces with renowned guitarist Pepe Romero and the timeless Romeros Quartet, the Munich Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Phillipe Entremont, will present a repertoire of Spanish and French music. The Orchestra is one of Munich's four symphony orchestras and developed in 1990 out of the former Graunke Symphony Orchestra, which was founded by Kurt Graunke in 1945. For more than half a century the orchestra has made a considerable contribution to the cultural life of Munich with an extensive repertoire which includes symphonic concert pieces, performances of opera, light opera, musicals and ballets as well as oratorios and church music. Regular concerts in Bavaria and numerous tours throughout Germany as well as in Europe, Asia and the Americas have firmly established the reputation of the Munich Symphony Orchestra.
While at the Weis Center, the ensemble will perform:
• Georges Bizet: Philippe Entremont's excerpts from Carmen Suites No. 1 and No. 2
• Joaquín Rodrigo: Concierto de Aranjuez (Pepe Romero, Guitar Soloist)
• Joaquín Rodrigo: Concierto andaluz (The Romeros, Guitar Quartet)
• Jules Massanet: Le Cid: Ballet Music
