The renowned Voices of Ascension, of the Church of the Ascension, will be performing a program of Catalan music on February 9th, 2017. They have selected works associated with the Modernisme movement in Barcelona, including Marian hymns by Pablo Casals, little known choral works by Enric Morera, Manuel Blancafort, and Manuel Oltra, and De Falla’s piano suite of El Amor Brujo.
The concert will close with their second ever performance of Granados’s Cant de les estrelles, which was only recently rediscovered and published by Granados authority and co-organizer of our Granados Celebration, Douglas Riva. The concert is a part of our ongoing centenary festivities in NYC, so please join us for this chance to hear some rarely performed music. Riva will be performing on Cant de les estrelles.
