KORNGOLD Violin Concerto
TURINA Poema en forma de canciones
FALLA The Three-Cornered Hat (complete ballet)
Juanjo Mena conductor
Renaud Capuçon violin
Clara Mouriz mezzo-soprano
Manuel de Falla's sensuous ballet is a tale of seduction and revenge and tonight Spanish Chief Conductor Juanjo Mena brings to life the rich colours of Falla's orchestration and the unmistakeable Spanish dance rhythms. When The Sunday Times made Mena's recording of Three Cornered Hat with the BBC Philharmonic ‘Disc of the Month' they described the performance as ‘electrifying', join us to find out why.
New Generation Artist Clara Mouriz also brings Spanish sparkle to Turina's Poema en forma de canciones (Poem in the Form of Songs) while Renaud Capuçon revels in Korngold's Hollywood romance of a Violin Concerto. Oliver Knussen supplies the fireworks.
