Enrique Mazzola brings his flair to a concert influenced by the sultry heat of Iberia. A shimmer of Andalusian light shines over the movements of Manuel de Falla’s Nights in the Gardens of Spain
– an exotic slice of delicate, glistening orchestral writing that together with Ottorino Respighi’s blazing picture of the city of Rome is about as evocative of a place as is possible in music. Unsurprisingly, perhaps, it was a foreigner who seemed to get most excited by the prospect of evoking Spain in music. A foreigner, and arguably the greatest orchestrator who ever lived – Maurice Ravel – whose firecracker Rapsodie Espagnole
rounds off this concert with infectious panache and bite.
