8/30: Cleveland Orchestra



After Saturday’s all-French program, the Cleveland Orchestra crosses the border for a program that mixes works by Spanish composers with some French guys who borrow rhythms, drama and inspiration from the Iberian Peninsula. Most of the pieces are greatest hits from that part of the world: Georges Bizet’s Suite from Carmen and Maurice Ravel’s Bolero. Alberto Ginastera’s Four Dances From Estancia and Lalo’s Symphonie espagnole (for violin and orchestra) are also on the bill. Giancarlo Guerrero — who was born in Nicaragua, raised in Argentina and started his tenure as music director of the Nashville Symphony this season — will conduct. German violinist Augustin Hadelich makes his debut with the orchestra. Showtime is at 7 p.m. at Blossom Music Center (1145 W. Steels Corners Rd., Cuyahoga Falls, 216.231.1111). Tickets: $21-$87. — Michael Gill
