The Spanish National Orchestra also programmes Sor

Just as the OBC (Orchestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya) rediscovers Ferran Sor's overture for the tragedy La Elvira Portuguesa, this coming weekend the Spanish National Orchestra under principal conductor Josep Pons performs another of the composer's forgotten orchestral works: the overture from the ballet Hercule et Omphale. The performances are 31 March and 1 and 2 April at the Auditorio Nacional de Música de Madrid. Among other ballets by Sor, the Tritó catalogue offers the score for the overture from Alphonse et Léonor.
