What is it about Spanish music that lets you know instantly that what you’re hearing is Spanish? THE FLAVOR OF SPAIN™ explores in multimedia the exotic cultural influences that create that unique sound. Deep in the lush, passionate and thrilling sound of this music are influences of the Moorish, Middle Eastern, Italian, French, Sephardic and Flamenco cultures, and you will hear all of these elements in the music of THE FLAVOR OF SPAIN™.

UNSUNG SONGS OF SPAIN, Part 3 of this series, showcases two wonderful modern Spanish composers who are mostly unknown in this country, Federico Longàs and Jordi Sabatés, as well as little-heard songs of better-known composers Amadeu Vives, Eduard Toldrà and Fernando Obradors. We will be offering two U.S. premieres in this concert, one with an interpretive dance by Suzzanne Ponomarenko. You will be amazed at the beauty and sensuality of this music, and you will leave with a deep appreciation for this amazing genre.
