Free pre-concert talk at 6.45pm by Dan Holden.

The overture from Rossini’s The Barber of Seville features his much-loved ‘Rossini crescendos’, where the overexcited music gets louder and faster at the same time until it can’t go on any longer.

Rodrigo’s stunning guitar concerto Concierto de Aranjuez was famously played by Grimethorpe Colliery Band in the 1996 film Brassed Off as ‘Concerto d’Orange Juice’.

Villa Lobos’ Three Preludes for solo guitar are inspired by Brazilian folk music, conjuring warm weather and sunny beaches.

In contrast, De Falla’s El Amor Brujo is a ballet whose dramatic score tells of a love haunted by the supernatural past.

Finally, Bizet’s orchestral suite from Carmen; the tempestuous story of an irresistible Spanish woman that ends in tragedy – arguably the most popular opera ever written.
