España!: Spanish Masterpieces for Orchestra


Join the New Millennium Chamber Orchestra, led by Music Director James Richard Frieman, for an evening of Andalusian gypsies, Catalonian gardens, birdsong at sunrise and spurned ghostly spirit lovers as we perform music from the pens of the 20th-century Spanish masters.

Our festival of Spanish Masterpieces features acclaimed classical guitarist Paul Psarras performing Joaquin Rodrigo’s celebrated “Concierto de Aranjuez.” Also on the program: Joaquin Turina’s electrifying and rarely-performed “Danzas Fantasticas,” an orchestral suite fromManuel de Falla’s signature ballet “El Amor Brujo” and Isaac Albeniz’ atmospheric “Recuerdos de Viaje (Travel Memories).” Come hear how these composers effortlessly capture the passion, grace and flavor of their native Spain.

In addition, New Millennium is proud to present Martha McGee, the winner of the NMCO Concerto Competition for Young Artists, playing the brilliant finale from Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto in G Minor.
