Rafael Frubeck de Burgos is one of the great conductors working today; it was a thrill to see him and the LA Phil in this stunning program. It was HUGE: big orchestra, the LA Master Chorale, seven superb soloists, a Flamenco singer and guitar player...even a Flamenco dancer. All brilliant, ....and so were our seat! We were practically sitting on the stage! Bravo!

Beethoven's 8th was wonderful and enjoyable. Falla was very exciting with the larger orchestra and choir. Loved the flamenco guitar, singer and dancer especially. The Opera stars were also very good although the words are ridiculously soap...continued
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. Light on its feet, the Eighth is full of abstract dance gestures, while Falla drew on Spanish traditional song and dance for his two-act opera.
