Jesús Guridi and Isaac Albéniz at the Cadiz Festival

The 2008 Spanish Music Festival of Cadiz, organized by the Government of Andalusia, which runs 20-30 November, features a range of works from the Tritó catalogue. On Saturday, 22 November, the Basque National Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Pablo Gonzalez, winner of the 2006 Cadaqués Orchestra Conducting Competition, presents Jesús Guridi's monumental Sinfonía Pirinenca. This work, which premiered in 1946, is one of the best examples of the Basque composer's oeuvre, with three contrasting movements, from passages of great melodic beauty to others of stunning rhythmic richness, and including influences from folk music and French impressionism. On 29 November, the Granada City Orchestra conducted by JF Haisser performs three of Jesús Rueda's orchestrations of Isaac Albéniz's Suite Iberia: Triana, Lavapiés and Evocación. The Madrid composer's particular tribute to one of the great piano works of all times retains all the freshness and immediacy of the original rendered in orchestral form. The Granada City Orchestra performs the same programme on 30 November as part of the orchestra's regular concert season.
