De FALLA: El Amor Brujo Ballet Suite
BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 7
David Amado, conducting
Denyce Graves, Mezzo Soprano
On March 26, 2017, the Delaware Symphony will return to Kent County for its first performance in the beautiful Dover High School Theater. For this special event, we will welcome internationally acclaimed mezzo soprano Denyce Graves to perform the solo part in the Ballet Suite from Manuel de Falla’s El Amor Brujo. David Amado comments, “Filled with Andalusian passion, Gypsy flair, magic, ghosts, and, in the end, true love, it is a glittering showpiece for both singer and orchestra.” The concert concludes with Beethoven’s electric 7th Symphony, which Richard Wagner called “the apotheosis of the dance” for its intense rhythmic energy. The program opens with Elgar’s beautiful Serenade for strings, which Amado calls “as decorous as the Beethoven is raucous.”
