The weather was muggy summer weather. I wore a nice shirt/tie + jeans. No need for your LBD, but it is nice to be a little dressy in such a nice venue..

Description

Life and death, light and dark: Spanish conductor Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos pairs Beethoven’s ebullient Eighth Symphony with Falla’s gritty tale of a woman wronged.
