«¡España!» Cycle (IV)

After a light a la Rossini introduction written by the Spanish composer, Juan Crisostomo Arriaga, the youthful virtuoso Ruben Mendoza joins forces with the Athens State Orchestra for one of the most impressive works in the violin repertoire: Lalo’s Spanish Symphony. The celebrated conductor, Loukas Karytinos, will also conduct two impressive works inspired by the legendary charmer, Don Juan, by Gluck and Strauss respectively.
