DEBUSSY “Ibéria”, No. 2 from Images

Two of Spain’s most beloved exports – distinguished conductor Juanjo Mena and soloist Javier Perianes – take the stage to celebrate Spanish and Latin contributions to classical music. Haydn’s highly dramatic “Trauer Symphony” opens the program followed by Ravel’s Concerto in G with jazz and Basque folk music influences. Then, Alberto Ginastera, one of the most innovative Latin composers of the 20th century, amplifies the voice of Argentinian folk music in Variaciones Concertantes. Followed by Debussy’s “Ibéria” which clearly invokes the Spanish fascination that became so popular in late 19th century France.
