The enchanting combination of flute and harp unites two of Australia’s vibrant young soloists, Jonathan Henderson and Emily Granger, in a recital celebrating the rich heritage of Spain’s national dances and folk music. 

Redolent with Spanish motifs, two robust miniatures by Ibert and Hasselmans beautifully evoke the flamenco guitar. Paris-dwelling composers Ravel and Chabrier yield elegant interpretations of the Habañera. 

At the heart of this recital sits a deeply evocative rêverie – De Falla’s melancholic Nocturno, and Seven Spanish Folksongs, a cycle in strikingly diverse regional styles imbued with Hispanic flair. 

Borne’s Fantasie Brillante on Themes from Bizet’s Carmen spins the flute in virtuosic threads around a charming opera melody, with the infamous Habañera, Chanson Bohème and Toreador.
