19:30 Wed 20 Aug 2014 Royal Albert Hall
The West–Eastern Divan Orchestra returns with Daniel Barenboim for a Spanish-themed evening. We open outside Seville in Mozart’s breathless Figaro overture, before drifting into dreams with Ravel’s Rapsodie espagnole. Dreams give way to dance in Ravel’s Boléro and his Pavane pour une infante défunte. Also included are two works composed for the orchestra – Kareem Roustom’s Ramal and Ayal Adler’s Resonating Sounds – both exploring the musical junctions of East and West.

    About this event

    The West–Eastern Divan Orchestra and Daniel Barenboim return for a colourful Spanish-flavoured evening.

    We begin just outside Seville in Mozart’s vivacious Figaro overture, before drifting into the dreamy Spanish nights of Ravel’s Rapsodie espagnole. Dreams give way to convulsing, urgent dance as we reach the Rapsodie’s latter movements – a preview of the rhythmic intensity of the composer’s Boléro.

    Also featuring here are two works newly composed for the orchestra – both exploring the musical junctions of East and West.
