Jun Märkl, conductor
Ingrid Fliter, piano

Chabrier: España
Falla: Nights in the Gardens of Spain
Bizet (arr. Fritz Hoffman): Selections from Carmen (Prélude, Aragonaise, Seguedille, Les Toréadors, Habañera, Chanson du Toréador, Danse Bohême)
Rimsky-Korsakov: Capriccio espagnol
Ravel: Boléro

From Carmen to Boléro, all of this evening’s music is inspired by the infectious flamenco rhythms and passionate spirit of Spain. Ravel’s one-movement orchestral showpiece introduces a repetitive, hypnotic rhythm that gradually builds to a shattering climax, bringing the piece to an exultant conclusion. This evening of Spanish flair is not to be missed!
