LORENZO PALOMO (b.1938): Sinfonía Córdoba for Tenor, Guitar and Orchestra, Fulgores for Violin, Guitar and Orchestra.
Catalogue Number: 03T011
Description: Palomo’s orchestral music shares a sense of rhapsodic freedom with Joaquín Turina’s, perfectly exemplified by the Sinfonía of 2015. This rapturous portrait of the city (“Stroll to the Mosque-Cathedral”, “Nocturne on the Riverbank” and “Courtyards in the Month of May”) conjures its architecture and spirit with dance rhythms and vivid, poetic lyricism. Written for the unique combination of guitar, violin and orchestra, Fulgores (2011) skillfully blends guitar and violin with orchestra in music that possesses a wealth of tonal color and expressive beauty. Spanish-English texts. Pablo García López (tenor), Javier Riba (guitar), Ana María Valderrmana (violin), Rafael Aguirre (guitar), Castile and León Symphony Orchestra; Jesús López Cobos.
