Description Flamenco is an art form and lifestyle that precedes the Spanish Inquisition. Its guttural style of song inspired Spanish Civil War poet Federico García Lorca and composer Manuel de Falla -- as in his scorching El amor brujo, which will be performed with one of Spain's supreme flamenco singers, Carmen Linares. Flamenco is also a form of poetry, and it's about dancing. Pilar Rioja will show exactly how it's done when she dances to works by Turina. And the flamenco revival in twentieth century Spanish classical music doesn't stop at Turina and Falla, as two fiery flamenco-influenced works by Roberto Gerhard and Carlos Surinach will attest.

Includes pre-concert presentation with Brook Zern, Tomás Rodríguez-Pantoja, and Joseph Horowitz.
