BBC National Orchestra of Wales / Thibaut GarciaBangor, Snowdonia

BBC National Orchestra of Wales & Thibaut Garcia, Pontio, Bangor 


Thibaut Garcia, a winner of BBC Radio 3's New Generation Artist award 2017-19, joins BBC NOW on 29th March 2019. He will be playing Joaquin Rodrigo’s beautiful classic composition for guitar and orchestra, Concierto de Aranjuez.

Inspired by the fountains and gardens of the palace of Aranjuez on the shore of River Tagus, 50 miles south of Madrid. The Spanish melody conjures a picture in the mind's eye of a beautiful rose and magnolia-scented garden and the steady bubble of water in the background. And yet it has a wistful undertone that comes from the personal tragedy which urged Rodrigo to compose the piece.

In the second half of the concert, Tchaikovsky, one of the romantic era's most brilliant composers skilfully explores the concept of fate in his fifth symphony in E minor.
