Madness and Folly: Night Music From Spain with Juilliard415

Pablo Heras-Casado returns to The Juilliard School in New York to work with their period-instrument ensemble Juilliard415. Marking his debut with the ensemble, Heras-Casado made his U.S. debut in 2008 with an orchestra composed in part of students from Juilliard—the Carnegie Hall-associated Ensemble ACJW (since renamed Ensemble Connect). On November 22, Pablo will reconnect with the Juilliard School conducting a program inspired by the Spanish Baroque period in Alice Tully Hall.

This program is part of the 10th-anniversary celebration of Juilliard Historical Performance, which is taking place throughout their 2019-20 season. The program, Madness and Folly: Night Music From Spain, features Juan Marcolini’s Overture to La Dicha en la desgracia y via campestre, Francesco Geminiani’s Concerto Grosso on La Follia (after Corelli), Georg Philipp Telemann’s Ouverture-Suite, TWV 55:G10, Burlesque de Quixotte, Luigi Boccherini’s La Musica Notturna delle strade di Madrid, Op. 30, No. 6 (G. 324), Boccherini’s Concerto for Cello, 2 Oboes, 2 Horns, and Strings in D Major, No. 8, G. 483, with Juilliard cellist Sydney Zum Mallen, José de Nebra’s Seguidillas, and Christoph Willibald Gluck’s Dances from Don Juan.
