Tonight and Sunday will be the farewell concerts for Chosei Komatsu, the director for seven years of the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional.
The Coro Sinfónico Nacional also will participate. The principal work is Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 known as the “Resurrection.” The work has five movements.
The Ministerio de Cultura y Juventud said that Komatsu is analyzing other offers and has not decided what he will do in the future. However, he is reported to have said he will spend vacations in Costa Rica.
The concert tonight is at 8 o’clock. The Sunday concert is at 10:30 a.m., both in the Teatro Nacional. A television screen will be erected again in the Plaza de la Cultura for the audience overflow.
