Voices of Ascension Spain: Granados, de Falla & Modernismo

The turn of the 20th Century saw the flowering of the Modernisme movement in Barcelona and a flourishing of music across Spain. Much of this concert will be entirely new to listeners, but will captivate the ear upon first hearing.


‘Spain: Granados, de Falla & Modernisme' / Voices of Ascension

Pablo (Pau) Casals was renowned as a cellist, but he also wrote haunting, deeply spiritual choral music. Virtually unknown today, Enric Morera, Manuel Blancafort, and Manuel Oltra composed exceptional works for chorus. De Falla’s El Amor Brujo for piano, Granados's works for violin, and an aria from Goyescas lead to the long-lost Cant de les estrelles. Written in 1911 for three choirs, piano and organ, Song of the Stars receives its second New York performance in collaboration with CUNY's Foundation for Iberian Music and the Hispanic Society. Voices of Ascension received a Grammy Award nomination for the 2007 New York Premiere live concert recording.

Francesca dePasquale, violin

Funding for this concert is provided by the Catalan Ministry of Culture.

Voices of Ascension, founded in 1990 and directed by conductor Dennis Keene, presents exceptional performances of great works of music for chorus and orchestra. Over the course of its 26 year history, Voices of Ascension has produced an annual concert series, released Grammy-nominated recordings, and engaged in artistic collaborations with the San Francisco Symphony, Mostly Mozart Festival, José Limón Dance, the Mark Morris Dance Group, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and others.
