Juan Diego Flórez: Bésame Mucho
Peruvian star tenor Juan Diego Flórez goes back to his roots with this recital performed at Wiener Konzerthaus. His passion for Latin American music started at an early age, when he was still a child. His grandmother played tangos on the piano and his father Rubén is a folk singer famous in Peru who has a great deal of love for the great Chabuca Granda. But songs from Cuba and Mexico, especially those by José Alfredo Jiménez, also fascinated Flórez. With this programme he wants to convey a representative image of the Latin American continent using “songs that are all exemplary of the people and their various countries".
