Spanish coloratura is a common stylistic element of 19-20th century European composed music. One only has to think of the astonishing popularity of Bizet’s Carmen! However, the works of authentic Spanish composers are far less known in Hungary than those of primarily French composers using Hispanic coloratura as an exotic element. The song recital at the Liszt Academy on 27 February offers something really exciting in both areas. The core of the programme is made up of songs by famed and lesser known Spanish composers or those working in Spain: the Catalan Ferran Jaumeandreu Obradors, popular primarily for his vocal compositions, Joaquín Rodrigo, renowned for his guitar compositions, not to mention Manuel de Falla, rated the greatest Spaniard. Besides these figures, the Spanish trend of the French is represented by Delibes, Gounod and Debussy; they are joined by Mátyás Seiber’s French-inspired songs and Greek-like compositions. Theodora Raftis and Estefanía Avilés guarantee a genuine Mediterranean feel and authentic performance style.
