The word “pasaje” means passage, passageway, or ticket. Music, as in all art, is a powerful tool of expression that uniquely speaks to passages and journeys. Music reflects where we were, where we are, and where we need to go. We open Season 63 with open hearts and open ears, ready to learn and to immerse ourselves into an incredible music experience with Artistic Director and Conductor José – Luis Novo. 



Tania León Pasajes

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major, K. 488 Brian Ganz, piano

Anton Bruckner Symphony No. 3 in D minor: Movement II

William Grant Still Symphony No. 1, “Afro-American Symphony”

Pasajes reflects a developing musical journey from the Enlightenment to modern times, starting with Tania León’s groundbreaking Pasajes and following with Mozart, Bruckner, and William Grant Still’s “Afro-American” Symphony. 

Tania León’s Pasajes recalls scenes from her childhood in Cuba, including reminiscences of Latin-American melodies, rhythms that reflect the pulse of Caribbean culture, and the dances of carnaval

Mozart’s approach to composing, particularly in his operas, embraced the fundamental ideals of a changing civil society: diversity, inclusion, and equity. His progressive musical ideas at the time enabled, hundreds of years later, the advent and popularity of the many types of music presented in this performance. Pianist Brian Ganz brings Mozart’s vibrant and elegant Piano Concerto No. 23 to life. 

Still’s “Afro-American” Symphony incorporates African-American musical idioms, including traditional jazz, blues, and spirituals.
