Of Note for Monday, August 18: DeFalla's Lush Spanish Gardens

Aug 18, 2014

Spanish composer Manuel DeFalla wrote his lush "Nights in the Gardens of Spain" for piano and orchestra when he was homesick in Paris. "I was so far from Spain that I may have depicted the nights as more beautiful than they are in reality -- that's Paris for you," he says of the piece. Tune in to Monday's Of Note with Katy Henriksen to catch the entirety in a performance from Phillippe Entremont and the Philadelphia Orchestra led by Eugene Ormandy.
