Spokane Symphony Classics: Spanish Nights
ECKART PREU, CONDUCTOR
ALEKSEY SEMENENKO, VIOLIN
It's been said the best Spanish music is written by French composers. After traveling in Spain, Chabrier wrote España, a colorful work that kicked off the fashion for Hispanic-flavored music. Lalo's Symphonie espagnole, dedicated to violinist Pablo Sarasate, showcases the soloist’s technical brilliance and sensitivity. Debussy's impressionistic Iberia uses lush orchestration to evoke sultry images of Spain. Spanish composer Granados gained fame for his colorful folk dances.

Aleksey Semenenko, violin
Ukrainian violinist Aleksey Semenenko is praised for passionate performances replete with “stunning technique and intonation, verve, wit, delicatesse, and beautiful phrasing” (The Boston Musical Intelligencer), as well as consistently demonstrating “an unparalleled level of refined musicianship and stage presence” (The Strad). This was evidenced in his triumph at the 2015 Queen Elisabeth Competition in Belgium, where he captured Second Prize and went on to perform Laureate concerts throughout Belgium with the Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège in Liege, Brussels, Namur, Charleroi, Hasselt, and Antwerp, and with the Brussels Philharmonic in Bruges and Ghent. ● Aleksey Semenenko's bio
