Zhou Tian’s Viaje fuses Spanish music in recounting the story of El Cid, while Gulda’s cello concerto is jampacked with elements combining classical, jazz and Austrian folk styles. Bernstein’s Candide is adapted from Voltaire’s novella, and West Side Story showcases the composer’s love for diverse cultures as he incorporates the music of different ethnicities.
