The world premiere of La Azucena de Quito

This past July 5th, on the eve of the 20th ANNIVERSARY of the composer's death, the world premiere of "La Azucena de Quito" - an unfinished oratorio by Joaquín Rodrigo with the text of José María Valverde - took place. The performance was given by the Symphony Orchestra of Guayaquil, in Ecuador.
In the words of the orchestra conductor, Dante Santiago Anzolini: "The world premiere was a great success, applauded by an audience of 1.250 people. The work has sublime moments, gorgeous instrumentation and astonishing quality. It's a real pity that it was never finished. It would have been an extraordinary opera."

The aria "Despedida de Azucena", which was premiered in Madrid on November 24th, 1962 by Isabel Penagos and is published, served as a closure for the performance of this incomplete cantata.
