Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra includes Ravel’s Bolero, Spanish Themes in Holiday Concert

Dec 18, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

$10 - $20

For this season’s holiday concert, the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra will feature three Spanish-flavored works, including Maurice Ravel’s “Bolero”, along with Tchaikovsky’s “Romeo and Juliet” Fantasy Overture.

The BSO’s assistant conductor Felipe Tristan begins the concert with Tchaikovsky’s well-loved fantasy. The soaring love theme strives with staccato rhythms of sword-fighting in this musical depiction of Shakespeare’s tragedy. Artistic Director Nicholas Armstrong then takes the baton for the Spanish-themed part of the program, starting with the highly colorful “Capriccio Espagnole”of Rimsky-Korsakov, followed by Manuel de Falla’s “El sombrero de tres picos (The Three-Cornered Hat), ” and ending with Ravel’s “Bolero.” Ravel once described his most famous work as “one very long, gradual crescendo.”
