In his 3rd visit to El Salvador Maestro Barbosa-Vásquez has an important challenge, not only perform the magnificent 1st Symphony of Beethoven, but also premier a new violin concerto side by side to the well know Mozart Violin Concerto #3 in G Major. “Premier a new piece is always exciting, is important to work very carefully to really get a great performance level in a something that none have a previous experience. But in addition, when you have 2 masterpieces like this (Beethoven and Mozart) the challenge increases a lot, now not only the orchestra have played the pieces before, but also the audience recognize those[...] at the end all three pieces need to be at the same high performance level…) says the Official Ambassador of Colombia Country Brand.
