Perspectives Ensemble mention in the New Yorker

This weekend, Foundation for Iberian Music resident ensemble Perspectives Ensemble, conducted by Angel Gil-Ordóñez, is performing their new program, “Falla!” We are honored to see that the event merited a mention in The New Yorker‘s “Goings On About Town” section. 

The concert consists of two Falla works, the rarely performed original version of El Amor brujo, which calls for a cantaora (a role filled here by eminent flamenco singer Esperanza Fernández), and a work derived from a scene in Don QuixoteEl Retablo de maese Pedro

To make this program truly exciting, El Retablo de maese Pedro (Master Peter’s Puppet Show) will include an actual puppet show! A digital one, at any rate. Animations by Kevork Mourad will accompany the music, and Mourad also be creating additional material spontaneously during the concert.
