Chabrier - España
Rodrigo - Concierto andaluz, for four guitars and orchestra
INTERMISSION -
Falla - El amor brujo
Ravel - Rapsodie espagnole

Cristian Măcelaru returns to take us to sunny Spain, joined by the Grammy™-winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet. They star in Rodrigo's Concierto andaluz, a sparkling blend of Baroque music and traditional Spanish sounds. Chabrier may have been a Frenchman, but his España was inspired by a trip to Spain; this piece will take you there. Falla's El amor brujo, teeming with Andalusian influences, never fails to intrigue. And we conclude with another Frenchman's take on Iberia: Ravel's rousing Rapsodie espagnole.
