Benet Casablancas Premiere March 10, Now a Part of Flamenco Festival NY

flamencoThe international Flamenco Festival has joined with the Foundation for Iberian Music’s ongoing Granados Celebration for a world premiere concert event on March 10, 2016. The Flamenco Festival has been called “one of New York City’s most important events” by Newsday. It features Hispanic musicians and dancers from all over the world, in addition to the ever evolving tradition of flamenco.

For this concert, Perspectives Ensemble (artist in residence at the Foundation for Iberian Music), under director Ángel Gil-Ordoñez, will be joined by Spanish dancer Anna de la Paz.  The concert program will showcase works by Enrique Granados, but the highlight is sure to be the world premiere of Benet Casablancas’s new work, Romanza sin palabras: Homage to Granados. 

The concert closes the celebration’s international conference, “The Life and Music of Enrique Granados (1867-1916): A Centennial Celebration.” It is free and open to the public.
