Vuelta a España

The art forms emanating from Spanish cultures have entranced and inspired audiences for centuries. From the composers on this concert to the painters Velázquez and Goya and the authors Cervantes and García Lorca, the flavors of Spain are so powerfully distinct that their country of origin is never in question. For centuries, Spanish culture has exerted a powerful pull on artists from other lands, and in this program of quintessential Spanish music, the French patriot Debussy can be heard referencing the Spanish guitar. In this unique program designed by pianist Hyeyeon Park with cellist Dmitri Atapine (who grew up in Spain), the soulful voice of the cello expresses the essence of Spain in partnership with sunlit brilliance from the piano.
