Peruvian conductor and curator Miguel Harth-Bedoya takes you on a journey along the “Inca Trail” in this unique program, rediscovering forgotten musical gems and newly composed works from his native country. Accompanied by images and video footage from present-day Peru, you’ll hear pieces like El cóndor pasa (a familiar song that has been covered by Simon and Garfunkel) and Illapa, which features traditional Andean flutes. Harth-Bedoya says, “These concerts can present a whole new world to people who have never been to South America.”
