Opening this program, which spans over 200 years of music, is a premiere by Festival Clarinetist Michael Fine. Next, is Francaix's charming octet, a distinctively French piece that was inspired by Schubert's octet for the same instruments. Beethoven's fourth string quartet follows, which features a Hungarian-style finale. Concluding the program is Turnia's piano quintet, a work that exhibits influences ranging from Gregorian chant to flamenco.
This chamber program brings the Festival's Music of the Old World theme full circle, beginning with the Hebrew themes of Prokofiev and endings with Brahms' interpretation of Gypsy dances. Interspersed are Paquito d'Rivera's jazzy Cuban woodwind quintet; Piazzolla's infectious tango rhythms; and a double piano concerto written by a priest. who was the eminent composer of late 18th century Spanish church music.
The Festival Orchestra returns to the beautiful Harold J. Miossi CPAC for a performance showcasing elegant Spanish compositions. Opening the program is Brahms' first serenade, a piece that is reminiscent of Gypsy music. Following is Rodrigo's Fantasia, featuring guitarist Robert Belinic, which was inspired by Gaspar Sanz's 1674 manual on Spanish Guitar playing. De Falla's The Three Cornered Hat finishes the program, a ballet suite that tells a story of seduction and draws on traditional fold music of Andalucia.
