The Houston Symphony plays Spanish travel guide with Falla & España, a musical journey that takes us all the way from French composer Emmanuel Chabrier’s España to Manuel de Falla’s complete score from The Three-Cornered Hat. In between, Principal Cello Brinton Smith presents Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s lost Cello Concerto in the first professional performance since its 1935 premiere. Being a “lost” concert isn’t so bad — Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos, Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons and Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony were all “lost” before they became concert-hall staples when rediscovered by later generations. Guest conductor Kazuki Yamada expects people to fall in love with this style of music. “Spanish music is full of passion and energy,” he says. “Especially de Falla’s Three-Cornered Hat is brimming with intense rhythms. The audience can surely look forward to a very special and exciting concert evening.”

8 p.m. Friday. Also 8 p.m. April 13 and 15. Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-224-7575 or visit houstonsymphony.org. $25 to $136.
