Talent Unlimited Soloists | 'Debussy in Spain'

Wed 7 November 2018, 6.00pm
Chancellor's Hall, Senate House,
University of London, Malet Street, Bloomsbury,
London
WC1E 7HU
United Kingdom

Whilst Claude Debussy (1862-1918) never set foot on Spanish soil, Iberia provided the inspiration for some of his greatest works; indeed, he did more than perhaps any other foreign composer to construct a musical picture of Spain in the imagination of international audiences. Manuel de Falla claimed that the Frenchman’s evocations of Spain - which he described as being ‘en español’ rather than ‘à l’espagnole’ - were the most accurate ever composed up to then. To mark Debussy's centenary, join us for an evening of sumptuous French and Spanish classics performed by soloists from Talent Unlimited. The programme features a selection of Debussy's Spanish-themed chamber works alongside others by several of his Spanish contemporaries and collaborators such as Falla, Rodrigo, Nín, Mompou and Turina. Part of our new Young Performer's Platform, this collaboration with Talent Unlimited - a visionary UK charity supporting the nurturing of young professional talent in classical music - aims to showcase Luso/Hispanic young performers based in the UK, as well as introducing Iberican repertoire to the next generation of non-native musicians.

The event includes a pre-concert talk by Chris Collins (University of Bangor): Música hecha en español’: Falla on Debussy

Claude Debussy Estampes: ‘Soirée dans Grenade’ | Préludes: ‘La puerta del vino’ | Préludes: ‘La sérénade ininterrompue’ | Images: ‘Poissons d’or’ | Masques | Fêtes galantes: ‘Fantoches’ | Mandoline | Madrid | Séguidille | Chanson espagnol | Cello Sonata: ‘Finale’ | String Quartet in G Minor: ‘Assez vif’

Darío Barozzi | 'The Argentine Guitar'

London
SE11 4TH
United Kingdom

'Barozzi's guitar is an extension of his musical heart...' Diario Popular

Darío Barozzi is an artist who defies categorisation. His music exists happily at the intersection between the classical and the popular, moving seamlessly between art music, tango, folk and free improvisation. At the forefront of the newest generation of Argentine guitarists, Barozzi’s interpretations and original compositions combine fresh contemporaneity with a profound, native knowledge of Argentine musical traditions and a compelling brand of refined swing. Making his UK debut, Barozzi is joined by special guest, pre-eminent Cuban flautist, José Zalba-Smith with an eclectic programme exploring the many facets of the Argentine guitar, including a rare opportunity to hear an especially authentic rendition of Astor Piazzolla’s Histoire du tango.

Echoes Festival 2018

17 September 2018 - 13 December 2018Major Venues around London and Manchester
United Kingdom
United Kingdom

The UK's first and only annual Festival of Latin classical music is back in London this Autumn! Banish those Autumn blues and let yourself be carried away to the sunnier climes of Iberia and Latin America at Echoes Festival 2018, as we bring you some sizzling music performed by the hottest talent in Latin classical.

​Echoes Festival was launched in 2016 as the new flagship project of ILAMS (the Iberian and Latin American Music Society), in collaboration with the Cervantes Institute. Now in its third year, the Festival has brought unique classical Iberican programming to some of London's most prestigious venues, whilst providing a platform to some of the most authentic and illustrious voices within Latin classical music today.

​In 2018 there is much to celebrate: the 400th anniversary of Catalan composer Joan Cererols, the 150th anniversary of Portuguese composer Vianna da Motta, and the centenaries of Cuban composers José White, Harold Gramatges and Argeliers León, as well as that of French composer Claude Debussy, for whom Spain provided an important muse. Echoes Festival 2018 has something for everyone: whether you're into Early music or contemporary composers; choral repertoire or piano concerts; or whether you're interested in exploring the more serious reaches of the repertoire or you just want to indulge your lighter side...

This year there are also more ways to get involved: babies and toddlers can enjoy our new Bilingual Beats musical Spanish class; whilst amateur singers can take part in two different workshops. We're also excited that the Festival is, for the first time, branching out into the North, with two concerts in Manchester to allow even more people to attend the Festival.

We can't wait to see you there!
