Mexico & Spain
Acclaimed violinist William Hagen, hailed as a “brilliant virtuoso” with “impeccable timing,” joins the DuPage Symphony to perform Édouard Lalo’s flamboyant Symphonie espagnole, written for the renowned Spanish violinist Pablo de Sarasate. Mr. Hagen recently appeared with both the Grant Park Symphony and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The first half of our program showcases music by Mexican composers: José Pablo Moncayo’s dramatic Tierra de Temporal; Carlos Chávez’s groundbreaking Sinfonía india, which incorporates indigenous folk tunes and percussion instruments; and Arturo Márquez’s ever-popular Danzón No. 2.
