Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez is the perfect vehicle for
Grigoryan: colourful, elegant and virtuosic, conjuring the stately
atmosphere of the Palace of Aranjuez – the Spanish Versailles.
Bizet’s Suite from Carmen provides a perfect introduction
into the soundworld of Spain with its combination of French elegance and
Spanish colour. The Suite No.1 brings together the most famous moments
from Bizet’s famous opera, from the rattling castanets of the Aragonaise, to the triumphant music of theToréadors.
Beethoven’s Third Symphony was a musical revolution matched only by
his famous Ninth. Of a scale previously unmatched by the great
symphonists Haydn and Mozart, its grandeur is befitting of its Heroic
title and remains one of Beethoven’s greatest compositions.
