MOZART: Symphony No. 38 in D major (the Prague Symphony), K. 504 ‎
FALLA: “El Amor Brujo” (Love, the Magician), a ballet in one act (1925)


Conductor Carlos Checa will lead the Jove Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona in its ‎performance of two iconic works from its repertoire: first, Mozart’s Symphony No. 38 (the ‎Prague Symphony), an intimate and reflective symphony with a constant rhythm and an ‎intense expression that shows the depth of Mozart’s thinking; followed by the 1925 version ‎of "El Amor Brujo" (Love, the Magician), a ballet in one act that relates the love story ‎between Candela and Carmelo. This work by composer Manuel de Falla is a fine example of ‎folklore intermingled with classical forms and structures and is considered a masterpiece.‎

The concert, which is part of the Jove Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona’s 4th Season (18/19), ‎is a charitable concert whose entire box office takings will be donated to the Mans a les Mans ‎Foundation, a non-profit making foundation set up in 2004 to provide opportunities to ‎children and young people at social risk in the neighbourhoods of Marina de Port and La ‎Marina del Prat Vermell (in the district of Sants-Montjuïc) through education and training.‎
