Reinaldo Moya's Concerto for Piano, Strings and Percussion, an original piece inspired by Carlos Cruz-Diez, will be part of the opening night concert "Orchestral Technicolor" of the San Diego Symphony at the Rady Shell in Jacobs Park this Friday, June 24, 2022.
Originally commissioned for the Bangor Symphony Orchestra and premiered last October at the Collins Center for the Arts, Orono in Maine, the Concerto for Piano, Strings and Percussion will have its West Coast Premiere with the San Diego Symphonic Orchestra conducted by Rafael Payare and feature once again the Grammy-nominated pianist, Joyce Yang.
With this piece, the Venezuelan composer Reinaldo Moya proposes a musical interpretation of Cruz-Diez's pictorial language. Each of the piece's four movements is inspired by specific Cruz-Diez works and lines of research. The performance will be accompanied by images of selected Carlos Cruz-Diez's works, including pieces from the Cruz-Diez Foundation's collection.
The event is part of the opening night of the second season at the Rady Shell, a spectacular outdoor venue. "Making music at our new, iconic outdoor home is profoundly joyous and powerful," said Rafael Payare, musical Director of the San Diego Symphonic Orchestra, who will lead the "Orchestral Technicolor" concert through Modest Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition (orch. Maurice Ravel), Hector Berlioz's Le Corsaire Overture, Op. 21, and, of course, Reinaldo Moya's original piece. The celebratory evening will culminate with a sparkling fireworks display over San Diego Bay immediately following the concert.
