A Night in Spain

July 6, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

After the premiere of one of his works in Paris, the Spanish composer Joaquin Turina went to a cafe with fellow composers de Falla and Albeniz. “We were three Spaniards,” Turina subsequently recalled, “gathered together in that corner of Paris, and it was our duty to fight for the national music of our country.”  Turina’s piano quartet epitomizes Spanish music of this time.  The audience will also be treated to Spanish influenced virtuosity in Boccherini’s Fandango Quintet for Guitar and Strings and Sarasate’s Navarra.  The Navarra will feature Ascent faculty, Ilya Kaler, the only violinist to win Gold Medal in Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow (1986), the Sibelius Competition in Helsinki (1985), and the Paganini Competition in Genoa (1981) and Catalyst Quartet’s own Karla Donohew Perez.
