Birdsong in the night: the Nash Ensemble summons richly-coloured images of Spain from Joaquín Turina and Enrique Granados, plus a flight of fantasy from the young Maurice Ravel.

The Programme

‘Fight bravely for the music of our country!’ was a teacher’s advice to the young Spanish composer Joaquín Turina, and from his youth in 19th-century Seville to his triumphs in the glittering salons of belle-époque Paris, Turina brought the same fire and commitment to everything he wrote. Two of his most personal chamber works frame ravishing miniature masterpieces by his contemporaries Ravel and Granados.

The Performers

They’re performed today by the Nash Ensemble – for six decades, one of Britain’s (and the world’s) most versatile, imaginative and inspirational mixed chamber ensembles. ‘These Nash musicians live gold. They play gold’, wrote The Times. Imagine the emotions – the deep shadows, the dazzling light – that they’ll bring to this gorgeous Spanish-inspired programme.

Britain’s most venerable small-scale group, the Nash Ensemble …’ – Ivan Hewett

Recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3
