A new concert in the BCN Clàssics cycle, in which you can also hear pieces by Albéniz, Guinovart and the Third Symphony by Felix Mendelssohn, which is also known as the ‘The Scottish Symphony’.
The Concierto de Aranjuez, which was written by Joaquín Rodrigo in Paris in 1939, when in exile after the Spanish Civil War, is one of the crowning moments in 20th century Spanish classical music. Written for orchestra and solo guitar, it has become incredibly popular and has been interpreted by guitar icons like Paco de Lucía and Narciso Yepes. It can now be heard at Palau de la Música on 17 August as part of the BCN Clàssics cycle with the partipation of Orquestra de Cadaqués, conducted by Jaime Martín, with Pablo Sáinz Villegas as solo guitarist. It promises to be an emotive evening.
The programme is rounded out with more Spanish music, in this case with a review by Albert Guinovart of Tres paisatges ibèrics by the Barcelona composer Isaac Albéniz, and ending, in the second part, with Felix Mendelssohn's Third or Scottish Symphony, one of the German romantic composer's first creations.
You'll find additional information on the BCN Classics website, where you can also buy tickets.
