Event Details

The MPO teams up with Spanish conductor Pablo González and renowned flamenco guitarist Cañizares in a concert featuring two of the finest examples of Spanish classical music.

Turina’s Danzas Fantasticas, arguably his most famous work, was originally written for solo piano, but the orchestral version was the first to be performed in public. The work, featuring three movements showcasing different Spanish dance form, was inspired by José Más’ novel La Orgía.

Rodrigo’s Concierto Aranjuez is one of the most notable examples of a guitar concerto, and its success even earned him a noble title – he was made Marquis of the Gardens of Aranjuez in 1991. Its mournful adagio is particularly well-known, with the composer stating that it was written as a response to the miscarriage of his first child.

Dvořák was one of the first Czech composers to achieve worldwide recognition, and his work frequently sought to highlight his homeland’s musical traditions. In his Seventh Symphony, he sought to express the political struggles of the Czechs, whose land was then part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. This may not have endeared him to the work’s German publisher, who insisted on using a German title and a Germanised version of the composer’s name on the cover and who originally offered a derisory sum for such a major work.
