Celebrating the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra (4/4)

Thomas Dausgaard in a Spanish-themed concert of well-loved works by Debussy, Falla and Ravel.

Thomas Dausgaard in a Spanish-themed concert of well-loved works by Debussy, Falla and Ravel. From an impressionistic era of composition, come the sounds of Spain in three composers highly influenced by the country. Debussy takes us through the streets and paths, the fragrant nights and to the morning festivals. Ravel, whose mother was Basque, had natural affinity with Spain and set four different aspects of Spanish life in the Rapsodie espagnole and in the 'morning after'! Falla painted a picture of his home country in a suite from his ballet and also in his enchanting nocturnes for piano played by the young Spanish virtuoso – Javier Perianes
