Spanish Suite
Rosa Torres-Pardo & Rocio Marquez

Pure music doesn’t exist. Throughout time, popular music has been the origin of grand masterpieces where contact between different cultures has left clear signs. This is evident, for example, in French impressionism where there is a strong influence from oriental music using its penthatonic scale.

In “Spanish Suite”, a classical pianist and a flamenco singer mix live and written music in the search for a better understanding of this evolution, exploring both worlds, looking for its roots and providing the compositions of Granados, Albéniz or Falla with the freedom of live music.

“Suite Española” is an compelling exchange that aspires to be a new and different experience.
