This past week in Asturias, Spain, Rossen conducted the Orquesta Sinfónica del Principado de Asturias in Szymanowski’s version of Stabat Mater. These concerts were supported by Ewa Tracz, soprano; David Menendez, baritone; and the chorus of the Fundación Princesa de Asturias. This concert was performed to observe and celebrate Semana Santa (Easter week) in Spain.
Also on the program was Los Improperios by Mompou for chorus and orchestra. This piece was written in memory of Francis Poulenc.
