Sunday Classics: Flanders Symphony Orchestra

Concierto de Aranjuez with the Flanders Symphony Orchestra

7:30pm, Sunday 27 October 2019

Milos Karadaglic

Global superstar guitarist Miloš Karadaglić headlines this kaleidoscopic concert conjuring the rich colours and intoxicating perfumes of Spain. Experience one of Belgium’s finest orchestras – whose 2016 Usher Hall concert was greeted with enormous acclaim – under young Spanish conductor José Luis Gomez, celebrated for his electrifying energy.

Blending classical elegance with the foot-tapping rhythms of Iberian folk, Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez is rightly one of the most popular concertos ever written – its heartbreaking slow movement, conveying Rodrigo’s grief at the death of his child, one of classical music’s iconic pieces.

Miloš brings his dazzling musical prowess and disarming charisma to this exceptionally beautiful music, alongside three captivating Preludes for solo guitar by Brazilian Heitor Villa-Lobos.

The Spanish romance continues in the bubbling humour of Rossini’s effervescent The Barber of Seville Overture and the fiery gypsy abandon of Falla’s sensuous El amor brujo Suite. To close, give in to the charms of a seductive cigarette girl in the enduring melodies of Bizet’s Carmen Suite.
