A Singing Flame: The Soul of Spanish Music

In the Romantic imagination, Spain was a land of passion, desire, and sensuality. Towards the end of the 19th century, Spanish culture infused new blood in the development of nationalism in Europe and captivated the imagination of many foreign composers.

The sensual melodic lines and vibrant rhythms of Spanish music are showcased in this program, featuring works by Manuel de Falla, Granados, Albéniz, and Turina, in addition to works by foreign composers inspired by the fire and passion of Spain. Narration from 19th-century letters, diaries, and other writings about Spain and its culture.
