About

Jesús López-Cobos, one of Spain's most distinguished conductors, leads two programs as part of the Kennedy Center festival IBERIAN SUITE: global arts remix.

On Thursday, he conducts an evening of fado music featuring two of the greatest fadistas of today, Camané and Carminho from Portugal. Turina's Danzas fantasticas celebrates the sounds of Aragon, the Basque region, and Andalusia, while Albéniz's Suite Iberia conjures the national sounds of the peninsula.

On Friday and Saturday, Jesús López-Cobos conducts a program celebrating four of his country's finest composers, and one who personifies the flow and remix of the arts across continents, Brazil's Heitor Villa Lobos. Featured soloists include Colombian soprano Juanita Lascarro and Spanish pianist Javier Perianes.
