[email protected]’s Focus residencies offer listeners opportunities to experience thoughtful and thematic programming in a ‘mini-festival’ format over two evenings. The first evening is a Behind the Music discussion, inspired by [email protected]’s popular Encounter lecture series. These discussion events are led by the artist-curators and feature live musical examples, multimedia illustrations, and a deeper dive into the works on the Residency program. On the following evening, ambitious and imaginative concert programs showcase the works discussed.
We’ll take a deep dive into exactly why Spanish music is so vibrant and identifiable, and explore the types of folk dances that are essential to Spanish classical music. Live musical demonstrations uncover the intricate music of late 19th- and early 20th-century Spanish composers, with a colorful combination of violin, guitar, piano, cello, and voice.
