Spanish Symphony celebrates Spanish classical music from the romantic and nationalist period in which stylised dance and popular songs played prominent roles.
Includes works by composers Granados, Ravel, Lalo, Ibert, de Falla and Albéniz, whose piano pieces were inspired by popular rhythms, written for salon concerts and danced in a stylised way.
The concert also includes a wide selection of popular songs from the pages of Spanish literature, such as the adventures of Don Quixote and a special four-handed abridged performance of Ravel’s Bolero on piano.
