First travel through France, Spain and Brazil with music by some of history’s most celebrated composers: Jean-Phillip Rameau, Maurice Ravel, Claude Debussy, Isaac Albeniz, Manuel de Falla, and Radames Gnattali. The second half opens with the sound of Australia captured by the late Phillip Houghton in his Three Duets, from which the title of the program is inspired by the explosive final movement. The world tour is completed with a journey to Argentina with Astor Piazzolla's famous Tango Suite.
