Herminigildo Ranera, the PPO’s associate conductor leads the orchestra in performing pieces by Bedřich Smetana, Édouard Lalo, Alexander Arutiunian, Ferde Grofé.

Cellist Iñaki Etxepare

US based Raymond de Leon, a winner of three First Prize awards in the National Music Competition for Young Artists (NAMCYA) plays Arutiunian’s Trumpet Concerto in A flat major. Iñaki Etxepare plays Lalo’s Cello Concerto in D minor. He last performed in Manila back in February 2010 with the UST Symphony Orchestra and as the other half of the Pik Nik Cello Duo. Other pieces to be performed this evening will be Smetana’s Die Moldau (Vltava) and Grofé’s The Grand Canyon Suite. Since Ranera will be conducting this time, it will be interesting to see if there would still be a pre-concert lecture prior to the performance.
