Sueños Ibericos

Happening in the George Weston Recital Hall

Pre-concert chat at 2:15 with Michael Newnham

Spain’s rich history and sun-drenched pueblos have inspired composers of many different nationalities. Join Orchestra Toronto and soprano Julie Nesrallah as we share some great music inspired by Spain’s rich history and culture.

In the 19th century, growing nationalism in Europe also inspired an interest in "the other." Both the Russian Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and the French Georges Bizet portrayed Spanish themes and ideas in their compositions. Rimsky-Korsakov's Capriccio Espagnol uses the entire orchestra to portray the Spanish countryside. 

Mezzo-soprano Julie Nesrallah will perform several well known songs from Georges Bizet's timeless story of love and jealousy in the Spanish countryside.

Manuel de Falla, one of Spain's most renowned composers, incorporated Flamenco and folk remedies into his one-act ballet El Amor Brujo.
