“Británico” Youth Orchestra in Peru

February 2024.

The British Cultural Center in Peru sponsors a resident youth orchestra in Lima with full scholarships for its members to study English through their language study programs. Having established a relationship with this orchestra in 2016, Rafael returned for a concert performance at the Municipal Theater of San Borja featuring the following repertoire:


Pavane in F-sharp minor, Op. 50                    Gabriel Fauré

Romanian Folk Dances, Sz. 68, BB 76            Béla Bartók

        I. Bot tánc

        II. Brâul

        III. Topogó

        IV. Bucsumí tánc

        V. Román polka

        VI. Aprózó

Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1            Edward Elgar

Symphony No. 3 in D major, D. 200                 Franz Schubert

        I. Adagio maestoso – Allegro con brio

        II. Allegretto

        III. Menuetto. Vivace

        IV. Presto vivace

Amor de Temporada                                          Héctor Zúñiga Rovira/arr. Rodriguez


Rafael was thrilled to perform his arrangement of the Costa Rican pasillo “Amor de Temporada” with the orchestra. The pasillo is closely related to the Peruvian Waltz and the audience was delighted at the cultural affinity between the two Latin American countries.
