THE MUSIC OF THE CUBAN WARS OF INDEPENDENCE

Co-sponsored by The New York Historical Society

A landmark concert featuring works by mostly American composers inspired by the Cuban Wars of Independence in the 19th century, including the first song dedicated to the Cuban flag, written by an American musician from Baltimore, Maryland, in 1851, as well as marches from the Ten Years War (1868-1878) and the call to arms played by the bugler of Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders in Santiago de Cuba. A magnificent musical anthology imbued with riveting historical lyrics, chosen from more than 800 compositions discovered and compiled by the inimitable Emilio Cueto,most of which will be heard by New York City audiences for the very first time!
