Soak up the sun in this Spanish-inspired classical programme, featuring Rodrigo’s ever-loved ‘Concierto de Aranjuez’

Music from or associated with Spain dominates this programme as the Flanders Symphony Orchestra makes a welcome visit to City Hall. The music is thrilling enough itself, but if you add to that the electrifying talents of José Luis Gomez, a winner of the prestigious George Solti Conducting Competition, the event becomes unmissable.

After the drama and sparkling wit of Rossini, Miloš Karadaglic enters for Rodrigo’s adored Concierto de Aranjuez, with its dancing first and third movements and soulful and poetic second. The guitar stars in its own right in some atmospheric Preludes by the Brazilian Villa-Lobos before the concert ends in glorious style. Carmen might have been written by a Frenchman, but by goodness it captures the essence of Spain!

Pre-concert talk with BBC Broadcaster Trisha Cooper starts at 6pm.
