by BWW News Desk - May 7, 2014

The Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra presents their performance of the 2013-14 season, Sunday, May 18th.

First we have the Rapsodie espagnole, Ravel's intoxicating evocation in sound of Spain's cool nights and sultry days. It's insinuating and sexy, with a touch of flamenco too. Through the wizardry of his magical harmonies and luminous orchestration Ravel makes our ears believe they can actually smell the delicious scent of jasmine that suffuses the air and feel the caress on our cheek of the night breezes that waft through the music.
