Artist Interview: Charles Ramirez and Jose-Luis Novo


This Sunday the sounds of Spain and Latin America will fill the William Saroyan Theatre in downtown Fresno as the Fresno Philharmonic presents a concert titled Bolero. Featuring music by composers like Astor Piazzolla (Tangazo), Joaquin Rodrigo (Concierto de Aranjuez), and Ravel (Bolero) it's a multi-continental tribute to the romance and rhythms of a fascinating culture.
The concert features a performance by guitarist Charles Ramirez with Rodrigo's beloved masterpiece, and also features guest conductor Jose-Luis Novo. The two joined us for a live interview on Valley Public Radio to talk about their careers and the music of Ravel, Rodrigo and Piazzolla.
