Passion and Fire: The Music of Spain
Pan American Symphony Orchestra brings an evening of music, songs, and flamenco dance to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
Pan American Symphony Orchestra (Paso) brings an evening of music by Spain’s foremost composers —Isaac Albeniz, Manuel de Falla, and Joaquin Turina— music infused with the rhythms of Spanish folk dances, and reflecting the traditions of the Gypsy, Jewish, Arab, African, and Greek peoples.
Joining Paso are mezzo-soprano Anamer Castrello singing de Falla’s dramatic flamenco-inspired masterpiece El Amor Brujo, and, direct from Spain, Maria Juncal, a Flamenco dancer whose percussive interpretations bring intensity to this show. De Falla’s Siete Canciones Españolas, featuring virtuoso cellist Dorotea Racz, captures Spain’s unique music culture.
