TSH 1617
CATALAN CLASSICS FOR LA DIADA DE SANT JORDI (April 16-22)


Whether you know April 23rd as la Diada de Sant Jordi, el día de la rosa, or el día del llibre, The Spanish Hour celebrates the Catalan national holiday with Catalan classics from the Renaissance through the 20th century. This week's program focuses on three Spanish composers from the Catalan region. We'll hear sacred music from the Renaissance by Joan Cererols, piano miniatures reminiscent of Schumann's Album for the Young by Granados disciple Josep Martí i Cristià, and a piano trio by Granados himself, written when he was 27.
