About This Performance

Grab your passport and join us for our season’s grand finale in Spain. Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, by far his best-known work, cemented his reputation as one of Spain’s most significant composers.

We’ll also view the Iberian Peninsula through the lens of two visiting composers, Ravel (France) and Rimsky-Korsakov (Russian), and hear how each portrayed Spanish music through their distinct writing styles.
