Interpreters and guest artists

Barcelona Symphony Band
Isabelle Ruf-Weber, conductor

The Swiss conductor Isabelle Ruf-Weber offers us a trip around the world through music for Symphony Band. From the colourful Divertimento by her compatriot Oliver Waespi to the spectacular Symphonic Dances by Yosuke Fukuda, one of the most performed composers in Japan, a country that boasts hundreds of symphony bands and at present is the international powerhouse of symphony band production.

Program

The journey also takes us through Italy, France and Australia on a trip with contrasting works: from the gentle Solemnitas by Cesarini to the delightful Children's Overture by Bozza, which links together a handful of children’s songs, passing through an Australian march by Percy Grainger that is dedicated to people born in the state of Victoria who are commonly known as ‘Gum-Suckers’.
