Three Songs in the Land of the Lemon Trees
24th September 2009
On November 7, 2009, the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra features the incomparable soprano and Dawn Upshaw with conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya in a programme exploring Spanish and Latin American influences. Headlining the evening is Three Songs in the Land of the Lemon Trees, a new work by Spanish composer Alberto Iglesias. Best known for his film scores for several critically acclaimed films by fellow Spaniard Pedro Almodovar, such as Talk to Her and Volver, Iglesias has crafted this new piece specifically for Dawn Upshaw and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. For Three Songs in the Land of the Lemon Trees, Iglesias draws on the poems of John Ashbery, René Char and Wallace Stevens.
