This is an album of celebration, of encounter, which aims to give universal meaning to the island identity, which has been worked with care, delicacy, heart and rigor. A work and a trajectory of Las Palmas Symphony Orchestra, which we can all be proud of. With this album, our beloved orchestra celebrates its twentieth birthday and has chosen the path of rereading old melodies of folklore and folk song. They contain a review of genres and songs that keep all their freshness, but seasoned with curious arrangements, melodic and rhythmic turns that give a new aesthetic value to our popular musical heritage. In the Canary Islands it is not new that classical musicians are interested in folklore. We all remember the work of Power and his Canarian Songs, which are a symbol of the Canarian identity. However, he was not the only one of his time to approach the Canarian tradition in order to adapt it to the symphonic language. Less well known, but just as important is the figure of Bernardino Valle, who bequeathed us an exquisite review of Canarian airs in his work Suite Sinfonica Canaria, from 1898.
