The Brazilian orchestra Sinfonica Heliopolis enchants listeners in this recording with a work by Russian composer Mikhail Glinka.
Sinfonica Heliopolis at the Beethoven Festival
Mikhail Glinka (1804-1857)
Overture to the opera "Ruslan und Ludmila"
Conductor: Roberto Tibirica
MP3 recorded in the Beethoven Hall, Bonn, on October 4, 2010 by Deutsche Welle (DW)
The young musicians from Brazil's favelas not only communicate through Brazilian rhythms and melodies, but also through this fast-paced, whirling overture for the Russian opera "Ruslan and Ludmila."
The Sinfonica Heliopolis orchestra considers music a world language, evident through their rendition of this piece. It's a true musical spectacle - mixing Brazilian fire with light feeling, played at a dizzying tempo.
