ABOUT THIS CONCERT
The Mahler Chamber Orchestra ushers in 2017 with a residency at the International Music Festival of the Canary Islands, which features both orchestral and chamber music concerts on the seven main islands of the archipelago.
After launching the 2017 edition of the festival with two orchestral concerts, the MCO continues its residency with a series of chamber music concerts. Musicians of the MCO present a wind octet programme of contrasts: it spans from music of the 17th to the 20th century and includes two pieces arranged especially for the MCO.
This concert marks the MCO’s first appearance in La Gomera.
