The sensuous rhythms and exotic melodies of Spain will highlight the 14th concert season of Symphony Arlington. Titled “Viva España”, the 2012-13 Season will feature not just native Iberian composers such as Albéniz, Granados, and Turina, but also the many composers from other nations who have found the seductive sounds of Spain to be irresistible. The Symphony Arlington audience can look forward to Spanish music by Russians (Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio Espagnol, Glinka’s Summer Night in Madrid), Frenchmen (Debussy’s Ibéria, Chabrier’s España, Ravel’s Bolero), Italians (Berio’s Ritirata notturno de Madrid), and other great composers from around the globe. Additionally, the season will explore music inspired by Spanish literature and from operas set in Spain: Don Juan by Richard Strauss, Wagner’s Parsifal Prelude, Mozart’s Overture to The Marriage of Figaro, the ballet music from Verdi’s Il Trovatore, and much more. A distinguished international roster of guest soloists will collaborate with the orchestra, including native Spaniard Daniel del Pino playing Falla’s Nights in the Gardens of Spain. Subscribers can look forward to a musical fiesta as fiery as a Flamenco dance and as rich as a bottle of Rioja! Olé!
