View larger map ›

March 24-25. It’s been said the best Spanish music is written by French composers. After traveling in Spain, Emmanuel Chabrier wrote España, a colorful work that kicked off the fashion for Hispanic-flavored music. Edouard Lalo’s Symphonie espagnole, dedicated to violinist Pablo Sarasate, showcases the soloist’s technical brilliance and sensitivity. Claude Debussy’s impressionistic Iberia uses lush orchestration to evoke sultry images of Spain. Spanish composer Enrique Granados gained fame for his colorful folk dances, Danzas Espagnolas, No. 4 and 5. Aleksey Semenenko, violin; Eckart Preu, conductor. Performances Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m.
