De Falla: Suite from El Amor Brujo
Strauss: Concerto No. 1
Gina Gillie: Reverie (world premiere)
Arturo Márquez: Danzón No. 2
Kodály: Dances of Galánta


El Amor Brujo is De Falla’s homage to the folksongs and dances of Andalusian Gypsies. Strauss demonstrates his understanding of the potential of the horn’s role as a solo and instrument. Gina Gillie’s Reverie portrays the divergent scenes of dreams. Kodály drew inspiration for the Dances of Galánta from Hungarian folk music he discovered in Vienna. Arturo Marquez’ Danzon No. 2 captures the movement and rhythms of Latin ballroom dancing.
