Full of pulsating Latin rhythms and lyrical and thoroughly romantic music, Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story weaves together many of the most memorable moments and melodies from the celebrated musical. Ginastera's Four Dances from Estancia sets the story of a tempestuous love triangle on a cattle ranch on the pampas. And in Saint-Saëns’ Piano Concerto No. 5, you will recognize the composer’s native brand of French glitter and keyboard pyrotechnics, which combine in a tour de force for guest soloist Javier Perianes.
