Enjoy some of the best Spanish music ever composed for orchestra — which, as it turns out, was written by French composers. Both Debussy’s Iberia and Ravel’s Boléro are bursting with invention and full of vivid effects. 

  • Guest soloist and composer Edgar Meyer is Nashville’s best-known classical artist, celebrated for his artistry and wide-ranging musical collaborations. 
  • This year marks the 30th anniversary of Meyer's first performance with the Nashville Symphony – when he was sitting in the bass section.
  • Meyer’s commission for this concert will be his first-ever orchestral piece without a soloist.
  • Meyer will also be featured as a soloist on Bottesini's Concerto for Double Bass.

Our free Classical Conversations take place one hour before all Classical Series evening concerts in the Balcony Lobby. Led by conductors, guest artists and musicians, these informative talks are a great way to learn the story behind the music. Classical Conversations will also be held prior to the 2 p.m. performance of Ravel's Boléro on Saturday, March 18.

An informal question-and-answer session with the conductor will take place 10 minutes after the close of the concert, at the back of the orchestra level.
