No passport, no queues, just let the RTÉ Concert Orchestra transport you to Spain with an hour of masterpieces vividly evoking the country. We’ll have Rodrigo’s famous Concierto de Aranjuez with guitarist Redmond O’Toole and a Ravel song cycle telling the life of Don Quixote with baritone Rory Musgrave. Sparks will fly in Falla’s Ritual Firedance and in music from Bizet’s Carmen including the Toreador Song and the Habanera. And to open, an orchestration of Debussy’s La soirée dans Grenade, which also borrows the Habanera rhythm in its portrait of a magical Spanish evening.
