Composers have long been inspired by popular styles and songs. In her “Canciones Populares” recital, Francesca Anderegg explores a dazzling array of music: blues and jazz are heard in Ravel’s Violin Sonata, popular song inspires Manuel de Falla’s Siete canciones populares españoles, echoes of Venezuelan folk music are woven through Reinaldo Moya’s Imagined Archipelagos, and the irresistible energy of Hungarian folk music infuses Bartók’s First Rhapsody.
Works to be performed on the “Canciones Populares” program include:
Ravel, Violin Sonata
Reinaldo Moya, Imagined Archipelagos
Manuel de Falla, Siete canciones populares españoles
Bartók, First Rhapsody
With pianist Brent Funderburk
