The Spanish guitar, the gypsy violin, and the human voice evoke the romance, longing, and passion redolent of the flowery late nights of Andalusia in this program of classic Spanish works by Granados, De Falla, Turina, and Sarasate.  This transfixing music demands technical and emotional virtuosity from the performers as the MMF Artists transport us across the ocean for the evening.
