Concierto, a bilingual show hosted by Frank Dominguez in Spanish and English, pays special attention to the contributions of Latin-American and Spanish composers as well as to performances of core repertory by great musicians of Hispanic origin like Claudio Arrau, Martha Argerich, and Gustavo Dudamel.
