The Sammamish Symphony Orchestra will take its audience to Spain through the music of Ravel and Rodrigo at the its España concert Feb. 20.

Under the direction of guest conductor Adam Stern the symphony will perform Ravel’s Boléro, a one-movement orchestral piece by Maurice Ravel (1875–1937). Originally composed as a ballet commissioned by Russian actress and dancer Ida Rubinstein, Boléro premiered in 1928 and is Ravel’s most famous musical composition.

Featured guest, internationally renowned classical guitarist, Michael Partington, will perform Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, a composition for classical guitar and orchestra by the Spanish composer Joaquín Rodrigo and is far and away Rodrigo’s best-known work. Its success established his reputation as one of the most significant Spanish composers of the twentieth century.

Also on the program will be Curtis – Souvenier of Guanajuato Suite and Ginastera – Panambi Ballet Suite.

The 7:30 p.m. concert will be at Meydenbauer Center, 11100 N.E. Sixth St., Bellevue.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and students and $10 for children age 10 and under and are available at the door or through http://www.ticketweb.com.
