Few Spanish symphonies, if any, have found their place within the standard repertoire, a strange phenomenon, considering the richness and depth of the existing repertoire in this field. On this program we share the music of Tomás Bretón, a composer known for his zarzuela theatrical productions as well as being a master symphonist.
