Two of Europe’s most esteemed ensembles share the stage for a sublime evening of Spanish and French classical music. The Munich Symphony Orchestra is one of Germany’s most venerated musical institutions, held in high esteem by audiences, critics, and experts alike. This important orchestra has enriched the cultural life of Bavaria with its unparalleled performances of symphonic concert pieces, opera and operettas, musicals, ballets, oratorios, and church music. The pairing of this orchestra with conductor Philippe Entremont, who is renowned for his outstanding interpretive abilities on the podium, creates a stunning collaboration. The orchestra is joined by Spanish classical guitar virtuoso Pepe Romero for a solo work. Mr. Romero is then joined by the other members of his quartet, an ensemble that has a sterling reputation in the world of classical music. As New York Times said, “the only classical guitar quartet of real stature in the world today; in fact, they virtually invented the format.” The Washington Post praised the Munich Symphony Orchestra for “conjuring up a joyous whirlwind of sound that ultimately launched the music blazing into the ether.”
