The music of Spain features evocative compositions from Manuel de Falla, Joaquín Rodrigo and Maurice Ravel. De Falla’s Ritual Fire Dance, a movement of the ballet El amor brujo, utilizes fast, repetitive trills and ornamentations, with the oboe introducing the dance’s twists and turns. Aranjuez Concerto for classical guitar by Joaquín Rodrigo was inspired by the Royal Palace of Aranjuez, transporting the listener to another place and time. Ravel’s Rhapsodia EspagniolaAlborada del gracioso, and Pavane for a Dead Princess showcase numerous elements of Spanish music inspired by the composer’s heritage.
