Asheville Symphony: Exotico! featuring Blake Pouliot on Violin

Darko Butorac, conductor

Blake Pouliot, violin

This concert is inspired by the fiery spirit and rhythms of South America — the sultry influences of tango shine in Piazzola’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires. Ginastera’s Estancia dances capture the spirit of the Pampas and the legendary gauchos. Revueltas’ Sensemaya is a musical depiction of a Caribbean snake ritual. The climax of the concert is Ravel’s spectacular Boléro — inspired by Spanish rhythm and a testament to the composer’s genius use of orchestral color.
