ACO shifts its focus to Latin and jazz-influences in this April Orchestra Underground concert featuring Gunther Schuller’s groundbreaking first use of jazz in a classical setting in Contours and rarely heard Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas’ Alcancias. Gabriela Lena Frank’s Manchay Tiempo, inspired by the composer’s recurring nightmare, has its New York premiere, as does Derek Bermel’s Mar de Setembro featuring Brazilian pop star singer Luciana Souza. The world premiere of Marcos Balter’s new ACO-commissioned piece Favela, inspired by life in his native Brazil, completes the concert.
