Composers Albéniz and de Falla lead us on a fascinating journey around Spain in an evening of music that captures the sights and sounds, colours and spirit of their native country.

Composed in the impressionist style and loosely evoking Spanish dance and folk flavours, Debussy was a great admirer of Iberia and Suite Española stating “Never has music achieved such diversified, such colourful impressions: one’s eyes close, as though dazzled by beholding such a wealth of imagery.”

Manuel de Falla, like Albéniz, commenced his formal musical training studying piano at the Madrid Conservatory. Moving to Paris as a young musician, he was befriended by Debussy, Ravel and Dukas and combined their musical influences with his own love of Spanish exoticism.

De Falla’s Nights in the Gardens of Spain for solo piano and orchestra depicts three different gardens, capturing the scent laden air and cool respite from the heat of the Spanish sun. Australian pianist Grace Kim will make her debut with the CSO performing Nights in the Gardens of Spain. As a concerto soloist, Grace Kim has performed with orchestras throughout Australia, Belgium, Turkey, Russia and the Ukraine and her recordings are regularly broadcast on radio and television in Australasia, Europe and China.
