The recommended dress code for the evening concert from 20.00 is Black Tie.
Pablo Sáinz-Villegas will play Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, possibly the most famous guitar concerto and one of the most original masterpieces of the twentieth century, thanks to the extraordinary beauty of its central Adagio. Clara Mouriz will add a touch of authenticity to the music from Manuela de Falla ballet The Three Cornered Hat, with its sensuous orchestration and unmistakeable Spanish dance rhythms. The pace slows down somewhat for a selection of Montsalvatge’s sumptuous Canciones Negras, for which Clara Mouriz’s voice is so perfectly suited. “Instead of New Years’ fireworks, you will be dazzled by the earthy energy of Turina’s Danzas Fantásticas. I look forward to celebrating the New Year at the Rudolfinum with you and with the wonderful Czech Philharmonic!” adds Juanjo Mena.
