Gluck Mendelssohn De Falla
Dance of the Furies from “Orfeo ed Euridice” Symphony No. 4 in A Major Op. 90 “Italian” “El Amor Brujo”
This musical journey will introduce you to great masterpieces and take you to distant lands, to different times and finally, deep into the heart of Flamenco. Our trip begins
with the virtuosity of Gluck’s Dance of the Furies. From
there, Santa Cecilia Orchestra’s musicians take you to
Italy with Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony, a romantic masterpiece sketched during the composer’s tour of Europe. According to Mendelssohn, this beautiful piece
is meant to capture the supreme joy of life in Italy – a sentiment that is undeniably felt from the first moment of the symphony to the last.
Finally, our journey travels from Italy to Spain and straight into the passion of Manuel de Falla. You will experience this thrilling artist’s finest music through the fiery artistry of Spain’s premier flamenco artist, Maria Bermudez. Our guest performer comes direct from Jerez de la Frontera, the “cradle of flamenco.” It’s a musical experience not to be missed!
