Gwendolyn, her students and players from the Young European Strings School of Music play the Danse Espagnole delicately and vivaciously. The rhythm and melody stretch from player to player, bow to bow, to create a conversation of sound, emotion, texture, and movement. Gwendolyn’s playing is a testament to her mastery of the violin. She blends the paradoxical expressions of melancholy and sensuality in de Falla’s music, bridging the gap of time and place between the work's creation and its life being played presently by the violinist. It rouses the intoxicating, magnanimous and universal experience of life—the dance of living.
