Spanish pianist Cristina Casale is touring the United States—but equally, her audiences will be touring her homeland through its most beloved music. Casale introduces each work by supplying historical commentary and asking each audience member to tell it their name and favorite snack.
- Soler: Finding bits of space in the taxing routine of a Hieronymite monk in 18th-century Spain, Antonio Soler managed to produce more than 100 keyboard sonatas—many of them masterworks of the late Baroque style.
- Mompou: Frederic Mompou’s 20th-century-spanning career was spent between France and Spain, largely writing exquisitely brief and delicate songs and dances.
- Albéniz: Isaac Albéniz devotedly sought inspiration in the character of Spain’s many regions throughout his oeuvre, and the works on tonight’s program—the Gypsy-inflected Triana and the flamenco work Asturias—both bear place names.
- Granados: Goyescos was, naturally, inspired by the work of great painter Francisco Goya, and requires a great deal of virtuosity from its pianist. The Poetic Waltzes require no referent to sweep the listener up in their romance.
- De Falla: Two dances from Manuel de Falla’s ballets appear on this program, one from The Three-Cornered Hat and one from The Bewitched Love.
