A Night in Madrid
Houstons Mercury Baroque ensemble is ready to take you on A Night in Madrid with a concert dedicated to the works of the classical composer and cellist Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805). Though Italian by birth, Boccherini lived most of his working life in Spain, whose geography was a great influ-ence on the composer. Boccherinis work reflected his adopted country but still paid homage to home. Todays program features his famous Fan-dango Quintet for Guitar and Strings and Symphony in D Minor (La Casa del Diavolo). Also on the bill is Night Music in the Streets of Madrid, with replications of the sounds heard on an evening stroll through the city. 8 p.m. Wortham Theatre, 501 Texas. For information, call 713-533-0080 or visit www.mercurybaroque.org. $20 to $55.
Sat., April 2, 8 p.m., 2011
