'He may well be the most dazzling and spontaneous pianist of his generation. Every bar sparks with a fearless, vivid and audacious life.' Gramophone

Sergio Tiempo was born in Venezuela and is a former protégé of Martha Argerich. His powerful individuality has drawn rave reviews from the press worldwide. Tiempo's programme tonight is inspired by his recent new fatherhood. Each of the pieces represents the personality of a different member of his family, including Villa Lobos' 'A Prole Do Bebe' for his little daughter. But there's another family member - the audience. In an inclusive gesture, Tiempo has decided to ask you, the audience, to decide which six Chopin Etudes you would like him to play. Voting details to be announced.

Nuno Silva: 'A Darker Shade of Fado'

Thu 1 May 2014, 7.30pm
artsdepot
Tally Ho Corner, North Finchley
London
N12 0GA
United Kingdom

(Not an ILAMS concert but one we highly recommend!)

‘Is there no end to Nuno Silva's talents? We saw him as an eloquent dancer with Henri Oguike Dance Company, and as the strutting gym Nazi in Protein Dance's Dear Body he delivered the funniest movement-theatre performance of 2009. In Arthur Pita's full-length work God's Garden, Silva reveals himself as a fine singer of fado, the melancholy song-poetry of Portugal.’ The Guardian

Soul-baring Fado meets sensual dance in the London premiere of this new work by singer and dancer Nuno Silva. With a tradition to rival flamenco, Fado is the blues of Portugal, holding audiences in thrall with haunting melodies and passionate expression. It features classical Spanish guitar, Portuguese guitar, and singing. Drawing on his Portuguese roots, Silva brings together an international cast to evoke the excitement and unpretentiousness of Lisbon’s old quarter. An atmospheric combination of dance, live music and song. The evening also includes a Portuguese food & wine tasting.

'Immensely distinguished.' BBC Music Magazine 

Brazilian pianist Nelson Freire - sought-after the world over for his interpretations of classical and romantic repertoire, and for his duo appearances with Martha Argerich - presents works by three musical giants. The first half consists entirely of Beethoven. First we hear the brief and tender Andante favori, and following it the mystical explorations and vivid contrasts of the composer's final Sonata in C minor, Op.111. In the second half, Freire turns his attention to the Romantic repertoire. Two of Debussy's Preludes are matched with two of Rachmaninov's best-loved Preludes, short, atmospheric pieces rich in melody and expressiveness. The programme closes with a selection of Chopin classics.

Ludwig Van Beethoven Andante favori, WoO. 57Piano Sonata in C minor, Op. 111
Claude Debussy 'Reflets dans l'eau' from Images, Set 1 | 'Poissons d'or' from Images, Set 2
Sergey Rachmaninov Prelude in B minor Op. 32, No.10Prelude in G sharp minor, Op. 32 No.12’
Fryderyk Chopin Ballade No. 4 in F minor, Op. 52 | Berceuse in D flat, Op. 57 | Scherzo No. 4 in E, Op. 54
