As part of Talks on the Rock, Vashon Center for the Arts will present two lecture-concerts with host and lecturer Michael Tracy accompanied by Seattle-area musicians in an in-depth, multi-media review of renowned composers discussing their lives, cultural milieu, and social environment. This intimate look into their lives and works provides a deeply personal experience with the music.
The Spanish School: Albeniz, Granados, de Falla, and Mompou
Toward the end of the 19th and into the early 20th century, Spanish artists, architects, writers, and musicians dazzled the world with their unique Iberian culture. Spain’s growing industrial economy, along with a more progressive political environment, helped give rise to a new wave in Spanish culture. Michael Tracy will discuss the Spanish orchestral suites, dances, and rhythms of Isaac Albeniz, Enrique Granados, Manuel de Falla, and Federico Mompou. With their work, Spanish culture joined the world stage of great national genres.
