The Philharmonic Orchestra to the National Autonomous University of Mexico (OFUNAM) has opened its 2022 Spring season concert under guest director Iván López Reynoso with a performance of Blas Galindo’s Poema de Neruda, Igor Stravinski’s Apollon musagète and Mozart’s Symphony no. 29 in A Major K-201, which consists of four segments: Allegro moderato, Andante, Menuetto and Allegro-spirito.

Poema de Neruda by Galindo is the most attractive section of this set, as it has been arranged for cord orchestra from the original text. It is a piece tinted by Mexican influence from Galindo, one of the most remarkable Mexican composers in the first half of the 20th century who included national elements into the European style classical music. The Stravinski and Mozart segments are performed to showcase the neoclassical in composition despite their gap between 1928 and 1774 respectively.

It was broadcasted by TV UNAM on 5 March, both on television and online and is available for streaming.
