* Premiere. Commission by the Granada Festival

The Orquesta Ciudad de Granada conducted by Pablo Heras-Casado has taken a trip to Paris for this Festival with a very varied programme. Together with the two classical symphonies that both Haydn and Mozart wrote for the French capital, we will also hear the voice of Piotr Beczala, one of the currently most popular tenors, who will include French songs in his repertoire. And side by side with these images there is a current symphonic view of the Alhambra with the premier of Memoria del rojo by José María Sánchez-Verdú which has been commissioned by the Festival.
