about this concert...
The Overture to Carmen is infused with Spanish musical elements, the famous "Habanera" melody, and the "Toreador Song", which reflects the opera's setting in Spain.
Rodrigo often drew inspiration from his Mediterranean and Spanish surroundings. Concierto Madrigal is no exception, as it incorporates Spanish folk elements and rhythms with Renaissance music of the 16th century.
Though Russian, Rimsky-Korsakov's use of orchestration in Capriccio Espagnol creates a vivid portrayal of the Spanish soundscape and festive celebrations.
Danza ritual del fuego is frequently performed in concert halls around the world. Its engaging rhythm, evocative melodies, and dramatic contrasts make it a crowd-pleaser that leaves a lasting impact on audiences!
