Program

When we are in love, our heart races and that pounding betrays us. In Caridiofonía, Andrés Valero-Castells offers a musical experience based on the rhythm of this organ, literally in the first and third movements. The second more poetic one starts with a quote by García Lorca, while the last movement closes the work with a theme by rock musician Luis Campuzano, a.k.a. Sherpa. The concert will conclude with Smetana fanfare by Karel Husa to mark the centenary of the Czech composer's birth.

Sorcery and mystery, gypsies murmuring spells, and dancing around the fire. El amor brujo is a tale of passion that goes beyond the living world into the afterlife. The main protagonists of this ballet pantomime are Candelas and Carmelo, plus a former lover of Candelas whose ghost torments her. Incantations, witchcraft and traditional Andalusian music all combine to make this a particularly appealing work. The "Danza ritual del fuego" ("Ritual fire dance") or "Canción del fuego fatuo" ("Song of the will-o'-the-wisp") have become landmarks in 20th century music.
