Tue 18 November 2014, 7.30pm
Instituto Cervantes
102, Eaton Square
London
SW1W 9AN

‘The technical mastery which, despite her youth, Elena Jáuregui has achieved is suprising, but less so than her maturity as a performer’. Artes Hoy

The Spanish violin-guitar Roncesvalles Duo (Elena and Francisco Javier Jáuregui) are joined by award-winning Icelandic mezzo-soprano Gúdrun Ólafsdóttir to launch their new CD Secretos quiero descubrir. From the heritage of the Sephardic communities, passed down from generation to generation since medieval times, to songs by Lorca and the folk Basque tradition, to the UK premiere of new Spanish music, this colourful evening will draw you into the depths of the Spanish soul.

Join us after the concert for a complimentary wine reception.
