Curiously, it’s often been French composers who’ve expressed Spain’s essence, as in Chabrier’s España, inspired by folk musicians he heard there on holiday. Bizet showed similar flair in his opera, Carmen, the colourful Suite No.1 concluding with the famous Toreadors’ March. But to capture the country’s soul, turn to a Spaniard: Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, performed by an always welcome Hallé guest, guitarist Craig Ogden. At its affecting heart is the slow movement’s wonderful melody infused with flamenco fire. After a brief visit to Argentina for Piazzolla’s exuberant Libertango, we stop off in Mexico for Márquez’s wild and energetic Danzón No.2 and finally arrive back in Spain for The Three Cornered Hat Suite by Andalusian composer, De Falla.
