Event Info

"A luminous and urgent performance, deftly balancing the shifts from moody ruminations to bouts of exuberance…. Heras-Casado is the thinking person’s idea of a hotshot young conductor." 
(The New York Times)

Pablo Heras-Casado, one of the most prominent conductors today, brings the rhythm and passion of his Spanish roots to this Spanish-inspired program. The "Philharmonic in Jeans" concert is presented by singer Yasmin Levy, who also performs several songs arranged by Yaron Gottfried.

Spain and the Spanish gypsy soul permeated many cultures. The poet Lorca claimed that the Spanish “cante jondo” (deep song) originated in India and traces could be found in every European country. It is not surprising, therefore, that Spanish melodies and even an entire Spanish repertoire were an important influence on composers throughout Europe. This program of Spanish-inspired works by French and Russian composers gives two distinct examples of the wide reach of Spanish music.

Both Ravel and Rimsky-Korsakov were enthusiastic about the range and the rhythmic character of Spanish music. The sound of pinched guitar strings in this concert’s two works may not be obvious, but they can be heard, and it’s worth listening for them.

French composer Maurice Ravel was enchanted by the strings and sound of  castanets, which he emulates first in the piano and then with the full sound of the orchestra. He remains faithful to the original source even when his palette is orchestral. Both pieces use the “Alborada” (dawn song): Ravel in the title – Alborada del gracioso – and Rimsky-Korsakov in the first and third movements of  Capriccio espagnol, where he brings together a number of Gypsy folk dances to form a brilliant orchestral work.
