«¡Espana!» Cycle (V)

A cycle entitled “?Espana!” could hardly fail to include Chabrier’s celebrated work of the same name. Danae Kara performs a virtuosic transcription for piano and orchestra of Albeniz’s celebrated Spanish Rhapsody, while Michael Economou conducts the Russian composer Rodion Shchedrin’s inventive and spectacular Carmen Suite in a festive conclusion to the cycle.
