The V concert of the official 2022 season of the National Symphony Orchestra of Costa Rica (OSNCR) will feature luxury guests: Costa Rican trumpeter Juan Carlos Meza and American pianist Benjamin Pasternack will be the soloists.
Juan Carlos Meza, principal trumpet of the OSNCR, will perform Georg Telemann’s “Concerto in D major for trumpet”. At the same time, Pasternack will play Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Concerto in C minor No. 24 for piano KV491”.
“I am delighted and honored to be able to participate again as a guest soloist of the National Symphony Orchestra, in a concert of the official season, in particular with this work which has not been performed since 2003”, declared the trumpeter Juan Carlos Meza.
He also elaborated on the musical piece will interpret and explain some of its peculiarities.
“It is a brilliant work, which represents the complexity of the Baroque style in the execution of the trumpet. It requires the use of the piccolo trumpet, an instrument used throughout the repertoire of the Baroque period,” he added.
