Doors open at 7:15 Discover the warmth of Iberian music in this program of Catalunyas most famous composers Pau (Pablo) Casals and Enric Granados as well as evocative works by Manuel Oltra, Manuel Blancafort and Enric Morera. Granados long-lost masterpiece Song of the Stars is comparable to a virtuoso piano concerto with chorus and organ, gloriously combining Romantic-Modernista poetry with post-Wagnerian harmonies. VoA gives its second performance of Granados Cant de les estrelles following the North American premiere and GRAMMY-nominated recording in 2007. This performance is presented in collaboration with the CUNY Graduate Center Enrique Granados Centenary Celebration and features pianist and Granados scholar Douglas Riva. The centenary celebrations are being sponsored by the Foundation for Iberian Music, at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.

Voices of Ascension Spain: Granados, de Falla & Modernisme
Thursday, February 9, 2017 at 8pm
Church of the Ascension
Fifth Avenue at Tenth Street, NYC

The turn of the 20th Century saw the flowering of the Modernisme movement in Barcelona and a flourishing of music across Spain. Much of this concert will be entirely new to listeners, but will captivate the ear upon first hearing. Pablo Casals was renowned as a cellist, but he also wrote haunting, deeply spiritual choral music. Virtually unknown today, Enric Morera, Manuel Blancafort, and Manuel Oltra composed exceptional works for chorus. De Fallas El Amor Brujo for piano, Granados's works for violin, and an aria from Goyescas lead to the long-lost Cant de les estrelles. Written in 1911 for three choirs, piano and organ, Song of the Stars receives its second New York performance in collaboration with CUNY's Foundation for Iberian Music and the Hispanic Society. VoA received a Grammy Award nomination for the 2007 New York Premiere live concert recording.
