Sorolla and America: A Musical Imagery, with pianist Marta Espinós

A selection of the best Spanish piano music that illustrates the spirit and content of the current Meadows Museum exhibition Sorolla and America by creating an audiovisual, cross-disciplinary parallelism. This recital provides a full aesthetic experience by revealing analogies between the Luminism in Sorolla and Nationalism in music –a great opportunity to celebrate the universality of Spanish art. The musical program comprises a selection of piano music directly connected to the
exhibition topics: the sea, the harbor, children playing at the beach, corners of Andalucía, gardens and other scenes of Sorolla’s imagery. It encompasses all the great Spanish composers, both contemporaries of Sorolla and the subsequent generation: Albéniz, Granados, Falla, Turina, Esplá, Mompou and Rodrigo.

This concert is presented by the Joaquín Achúcarro Foundation, www.achucarrofoundation.org.
Museum members receive priority seating until 5:40 p.m.
