The Northwest Bach Festival continues its summertime concert series on Sunday, and it’s the kind of event that will whisk you far, far away from potentially smoky Spokane. The program is titled Romantic Spanish Nights, and it features selections by some of Spain’s most respected composers — Manuel de Falla, Enrique Granados, Joaquín Turina, Joaquín Rodrigo — as performed by a quartet led by BachFest director and Grammy-winning cellist Zuill Bailey. And if you’re really feeling that romantic spirit, you can also purchase seats at a paella dinner preceding the concert, which is sure to add even more Spanish flavor to the evening.
