Music in the Year of 1915
Sunday November 8, 2015 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
A Musical Nod to the Centennial Celebration of the 1915 Panama-California Exposition in Balboa Park.
Camarada joins the City of San Diego in the centennial celebration of Balboa Park for a musical odyssey of tantalizing time travel. Escape to the year 1915 and immerse yourself in the musical masterpieces created during this magical time. Well-known and well-loved, Bartok’s Romanian Folk Dances for violin and piano invite you to experience the soulful beauty of the people of Hungary. From the land of Transylvania, we travel to 1915 Paris to engage in the lyrical and lush Trio for flute, viola and harp by Debussy. Meanwhile in Italy, Casella’s flute and piano extravaganza will woo you with its mysterious Sicilienne and optimistic Burlesque. Enjoy an entertaining side trip to the Magnetic Ragtime of Joplin and the Alabama Julibee. Next up, our travels take us to Russia to indulge in the famous Vocalise by Rachmaninoff. The final destination features the primal and powerful music of de Falla, arranged for and by the Camarada ensemble.
