Jorge Fernández Guerra: Pánico en Wall Street
In order to create Pánico en Wall Street, a work premiered during this concert, Jorge Fernández Guerra used a ragtime by Scott Joplin titled Wall Street Rag, parodying “the troubles of that tribe that has spoiled our lives throughout the twentieth century and up to now: brokers”. Fernández Guerra builds a musical fantasia around this theme in the form of an “indignant case against such unpleasant characters”.
