Program Notes

“Te amo sin saber cómo, ni cuándo, ni de dónde.
I love you without knowing how, nor when, nor from where.”
Sonnet XVII, Pablo Neruda

Danzon No. 2

Intermezzo de Atzimba 

Concierto de Aranjuez


A passionate program illustrating that love means the same in any language, including music from Ricardo Castro’s 1900 Mexican opera about doomed love, Atzimba, and Joaquín Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez featuring sensational classical guitarist Pablo Sáinz Villegas.  The second half is dedicated to Rimsky-Korsakov’s re-telling of the turbulent Arabian Nights tale, Scheherazade.
