Music from the Basque Country
Euzkadi, also known as the Basque country, represents one of the several ways of being a Spaniard or is it something else? It depends on whom you ask. The Euzkera (or Basque) people have their own language and a longstanding cultural tradition, including music. This program presents historical Basque composers featuring Luis de Pablo, Jesús Guridi, and more.
