San Diego Events – Flamenco Fire

Just thought it might be nice to post some happenings in San Diego as they catch my eye… If nothing else, you could learn a factoid or two, as I'll try to add some background information also – especially with links to other sites like Wikipedia. 🙂

I love flamenco! Never do I feel my (1/2) Hispanic blood as when I hear, or preferably see, flamenco being performed. Fortunately, there has been a venue for that for some time in the Gaslamp Quarter of downtown San Diego called Cafe Sevilla! That, and what I can find on the Internet and Amazon.com like Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez and Sevillanas… Even the Gypsy Kings and books like James A. Michener's Iberia.

This sounds like a really great performance in the flamenco tradition, and the Neurosciences Institute in La Jolla is renowned for the acoustics of the performance hall. Check it out, if you get the chance. Ole! ^^

Flamenco Fire

Camarada reprises one of their most popular programs: Flamenco Fire! Flutist Beth Ross-Buckley and guitarist Fred Benedetti perform flamenco-inspired works. Jacques Ibert's Entracte conjures the image of a dancer's fiery footwork and whirling skirts, followed by Enrique Granados' nostalgic and tender Danza Triste. Flamenco dance brings Manuel de Falla's El Paño Moruno (The Moorish Cloth) to life, after which the guitar takes center stage in Juan Serrano's Tempestad. Maurice Ravel's Piece en Forme de Habanera, composed for voice and piano, gets a fresh perspective with the flute and guitar. Next, we hear Joaquin Rodrigo's simple and light-hearted Serenata al Alba del Dio (Serenade to the Dawn). Also on the program: Christopher Caliendo.
