Spanish Fiesta! | Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Sunday, November 18, 2012 - 19:30

An evening of impassioned orchestral favourites, deeply infused with the sounds and rhythms of Spain. Rodrigo’s ever-popular Guitar Concerto (Concierto de Aranjuez) is full of Iberian sunshine and tender melodies – a worthy centerpiece to this concert. The programme also features flamboyant music from great Spanish composers De Falla and Albéniz, dazzling virtuosity in Sarasate’s Zigeunerweisen and the overtures to two of the greatest operas set in Spain.
