Conductor Christian Vãsquez 
Guitar Xuefei Yang 

Ravel Valses nobles et sentimentales
Rodrigo Concierto de Aranjuez 
Stravinsky The Firebird Suite (1945
Ravel La Valse 

Rodrigo’s elegant concerto was inspired by the royal gardens in the city of Aranjuez, and it summons up the dignified, courtly pasts of the kings of Spain. 

Ravel summons up different imperial eras in his evocations of Vienna in three-four time – Schubert’s, in the Valses nobles et sentimentales, and Johann Strauss’s in La Valse.

The king in Stravinsky’s dazzling fairy-tale ballet is, in fact, an ogre. He dances an Infernal Dance which can’t be said to be especially courtly or dignified, because it is absolutely electrifying.
