Ravel – Rapsodie espagnole
  • Enjoy this Spanish/Latin-themed concert, packed with fantastic showcases for the musicians of your Nashville Symphony.
  • History in the Making – Virtuoso guitarist Jason Vieaux will perform and record Leshnoff’s Guitar Concerto, a showcase that draws on both classical Spanish guitar and the composer’s own deep Jewish spirituality.
  • Ravel is one of the great orchestrators — a composer who knew how to bring out rich colors and textures through his use of instrumentation. Le Tombeau de Couperin is a Baroque-inspired piece for a smaller orchestra, while Rapsodie espagnole is a Spanish-flavored piece that captures the full scope of the orchestra.
Treats on Us! This Friday-morning series features FREE coffee and pastries at 9:30 am included with your ticket purchase. First come first served. Supplies may be limited.
Jonathan Leshnoff's Guitar Concerto was commissioned by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and co-commissioned by the Orquesta Sinfónica del Principado de Asturias, the Nashville Symphony and the Reno Philharmonic.
