  • Les Dissonances
  • David Grimal
With its Sevillian rhythms, its castanets, and its tambourines, its an imaginary Spain that we hear in Iberia, the third movement of Debussy’s Images for Orchestra, composed between 1905 and 1908. From the same year, the third movement of Ravel’s Miroirs for piano, Alborada des gracioso, was orchestrated by the composer himself. David Grimal interprets Edouard Lalo’s Sinfonia concertante, dedicated to violinist Pablo de Sarasate.
