      The “Other” Joaquín Rodrigo

      The tremendous popularity of “Concierto de Aranjuez” has made of Joaquín Rodrigo almost a “one piece composer” or just a “composer for the guitar,” which cannot be farther from the truth. In this program, Fiesta! reviews gorgeous and rarely performed orchestral and piano music by this Spanish composer.

      The Tango Invasions

      Before Astor Piazzolla, the Tango music from Rio de la Plata enjoyed periodic moments of international popularity. But always as dance music, mostly played in nightclubs and on the radio. Piano, chamber and orchestral tangos were written by Argentine and Uruguayan composers, as well as Stravinsky, Kurt Weill and other European composers, before Piazzolla’s time. However, those pieces were more the exception than the rule. Piazzolla was the musician that put tango music into the concert hall and, by doing that, he opened a complete new field for performers and composers from Rio de la Plata. This program of Fiesta! features orchestral and pianistic tango compositions originally conceived as concert pieces.

      Villa-Lobos: Manuscripts and Lost Pieces

      Heitor Villa-Lobos wrote, it is said, over 1,000 pieces. Whether or not this is true, he did write an enormous amount of music. Since he was not a very thorough archivist of his own production and he had a busy life, it was just natural that some works would get lost. This program of ¡Fiesta! features some lost and found pieces by this giant of 20th century music.
