Three Amigos Visit Spain

Frank Proto, Carmen Fantasy

Manuel de Falla, Nights in the Garden of Spain

Joaquin Rodrigo, Concierto de Aranjuez

Manuel de Falla, Ritual Fire Dance

Three artists showcased in virtuoso works for their instruments. TC Phil’s much beloved Principal Bassist Gary Gatzke, Jr. will wow you with unimagined possibilities on the bass in the Carmen Fantasy–based on themes from Bizet’s opera–this tour de force will knock your socks off with its inventiveness and sheer fun! Dorothy Vogel will perform the exotic Nights in the Gardens of Spain which truly evokes the sights, sounds, and scents of a bygone era. Famed guitarist Matthew Cochran takes the stage for the beloved Concerto de Aranjuez mixing neoclassical sounds of the 18th century with 20th century movie-like lyricism…and in Spain, you are very likely to hear the slow movement of this piece played by a guitarist on a town square!
