The Festival Mozart-HabanaA collective exhibition of contemporary Cuban painters at the Nelson Domínguez Gallery in Havana's Historic Center will open the 2017 Mozart-Habana Festival, which will be held from October 21 to October 28.

At a press conference in one of the main venues of the meeting, the Martí Theater, the maestro Ulises Hernández, president of the Lyceum Mozartiano de La Habana, and organizer of the event, highlighted some important details such as the inclusion of an opera in the program: "Una ópera de cámara, "Julius Caesar" by Georg Friedrich Haendel, a version made by maestro Osmany Hernández, with the performance of artists from the National Lyric Theater of Cuba, and I think it will be special.’’

The well-known cultural promoter and pedagogue also commented that the event will place emphasis on vocal music that has been deferred in previous festivals. "That is why there will also be two choral concerts, one in the San Felipe Neri Oratory Hall, with the Choir of the University of the Arts in Cuba, the Camerata Vocale Sine Nomine and the Exaudi Chamber Choir. The second will take place in the Aula Magna of the University of Havana with the choral group of this institution", he said.

The premieres that the festival proposes will be Dances of the Magic Flute by Jonathan Dove, a work for flute and orchestra, which will have as a soloist our great performer Niurka González, who will be accompanied by the Symphonic Orchestra of the University of the Arts as part of the Havana Mozarteum.

The other first audition in Cuba will be the concert for clarinet and chamber orchestra by Aaron Copland, with performances by the French solo performer Florent Héau and the Camerata Romeu.

The closing date will feature the presentation of the record "Mozart in Havana" that was released last April, produced by Sony Classical, recorded by the great American pianist Simone Dinnerstein and the Lyceum Mozartiano Orchestra of Havana. These are concerts for piano and orchestra No. 21 in C major, K 467 and No. 23 in La major, K 488.

The venues for the concerts will be the San Felipe Neri Oratory, the Lyceum Mozartiano of Havana, the Martí Theater, the Basílica Menor del Convento de San Francisco de Asís, the Catedral de La Habana, the Paula Church, the Universities of Havana and The Arts, and the José White Hall in Matanzas.

Other invited foreign artists include the Austrian violinist Alexander Janiczek, the Camerata of Colombia, the AR-CO Duo of Argentina, the French flute player Jean Christophe Falala, and the Australian violinist Jane Peters.

For the first time, this festival makes an inclusion of the visual arts by presenting a photography exhibition in the Sala de la Diversidad of the NGO Civil Society Heritage, Community and Environment, which will show the memories of the festival in its last edition.
