For his second Conway Hall concert, he comes together with the Benyounes Quartet in a programme spanning more than two hundred years, including his own arrangements of Piazzolla and Puccini’s Cristantemi, composed in a single night in 1890, in response to the death of the Duke of Savoy. There will also be a short audience question and answer session with the musicians after the performance.

Spanish Music from the Time of Manuel de Falla

'The renovation of Spanish music in the first half of the 20th century is unthinkable without the presence of Manuel de Falla.' Prof. Nancy Lee Harper

Ray Picot presents a programme of recorded music by Manuel de Falla and his contemporaries. The early 20th century was an exciting time as a new generation of artists took Spain out of cultural isolation. New musical ideas were explored, as composers sought to reconcile the glories of their past with contemporary European musical innovations, resulting in the creation of a distinctive and vibrant music scene. This progress ended suddenly with the Civil War, and only now are we rediscovering a lot of this music which had been lost to previous generations. 

Ray Picot presenter


TICKETS £1.50 | Limited availability; booking essential.
