Bécquer 150

25 November @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer (1836-1870) is widely considered the quintessential Spanish Romantic author. His poetry’s impact on Spanish music has been far-reaching and particularly crucial in the establishment of the Spanish Lied. The Bécquerian song settings span over a century and feature breathtaking variety, offering unique insights into the evolution of Spanish art song.

This concert is curated by Ricardo Gosalbo (Guildhall School of Music and Drama) and its programme includes songs by celebrated composers such as Manuel de Falla, Joaquín Turina and Federico Mompou, as well as lesser-known gems by José Espí Ulrich, Enrique Fernández Arbós and José María Guervós.
