Manuel de Falla is considered one of the most distinguished Spanish composers of the early 20th century. This Atlanta Symphony Orchestra program opens with his sizzling ballet El amor brujo (literally the "love wizard"), a feverish tale about a specter consumed with lust and cruelty. Each night, he forces a beautiful Gypsy girl — his widow — to dance with him. Colombian-born soprano Catalina Cuervo solos. Also planned: French pianist Bertrand Chamayou on Richard Strauss' "Burleske" and Beethoven's Symphony No. 4. German conductor Jun Märkl is on the podium.
