The concert includes Romeo and Juliet, by Piotr Ilich Tchaikovski; Concert No. 23 for piano and orchestra, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; La Comparsa, by Cuba’s Ernesto Lecuona, the piece he composed for the Cuban TV soap opera Tierra Brava, and others.  The Oriente Symphony Orchestra is a professional symphony based in the eastern city of Santiago de Cuba, basically made up of young musicians.
