Program Notes: 

A renowned pianist once said, “Bach’s Goldberg Variations caused me misery but I still can’t get enough.” This concert of themes and variations will satisfy with works by Revueltas and Brouwer, whose Canción de gesta is an homage to anti-Batista Cuban revolutionaries.


  • J.S. Bach/Colgrass: Aria with 18 Variations, (“Goldberg Variations”)
  • Silvestre Revueltas: Sensemaya
  • Leo Brouwer: Canción de gesta (Song of Deed)
