Nuno Lucas | 'Iberia': Piano Music from Spain & Portugal

Fri 1 November 2019, 1.10pm
St James's Church
197 Piccadilly
London
W1J 9LL
United Kingdom

Isaac Albéniz's masterpiece, Iberia, stands as the most well-travelled, musical whistle-stop-tour of the Iberian Peninsula, but it does overlook one important region: Portugal! In this recital, the young Portuguese pianist, Nuno Lucas, will perform piano music from both Spain and his homeland to offer a comprehensive Iberian musical landscape, complementing Iberia's 'El Albaicín' with works by Silva, Vianna da Motta and Lopes Graça alongside others by Spanish composer Antonio Soler, and honorary Spanish composer, Domenico Scarlatti.

Hailing from Lisbon, Nuno Lucas is currently pursuing a Master's in Music at the Royal College of Music with the support of the Countess of Munster Musical Trust and Talent Unlimited, following undergraduate studies at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama where he graduated with First-Class Honours. Lucas has also participated in masterclasses with names such as Angela Hewitt, Katia and Marielle Labèque, Stephen Hough, Artur Pizarro and Paul Badura-Skoda. A prize-winner at numerous national and international competitions, Lucas performs regularly in the UK and abroad both as a soloist and chamber musician.

José Manuel López | Composition Workshop & Illustrated Talk

Fri 1 November 2019, 4.00pm
Angela Burgess Recital Hall
Royal Academy of Music, Marylebone Road, Marylebone
London
NW1 5HT
United Kingdom

*CANCELLED*

Due to unforeseen circumstances this event will unfortunately not be going ahead

As part of his visit to the Royal Academy of Music, where he will be leading a workshop for composition students, José Manuel López López - one of Spain's leading contemporary composers - will offer an illustrated presentation on his work in the new Angela Burgess Recital Hall.

Specific themes analysed will include the composer’s trajectory as a composer and, in particular, the influence of electronic music on his instrumental works such as the piano and violin concertos; his circular approach to musical time and temporal use of scales in works such as Study No. 2 on Metric Modulations for 4 percussion instruments, Haikus of the Sea and VibraZoyd for vibraphone and electronics; his use of instrumental and metric granulation as applied to micro and macro temporal scales; extra-musical influences in pieces such as Autumn Wind, where poetry (haikus) and algorithm combine; and in reference to works such as La Céleste, Homing, and No time the composer will consider his collaborations with other artists.

"Sexier than '50 Shades of Grey'." Bob Geldof 

There’s plenty to get your hips swaying in this sultry concert of jazz and Latin-American classical tango. Martin Palmeri’s cult choral masterpiece Misa a Buenos Aires is ingeniously juxtaposed with the Mass in Blue by acclaimed international composer and Guildford resident, Will Todd, which has also fast become one of the most popular modern choral works in the world. Playing with the Will Todd Ensemble will be the chart-busting Latin American music specialists, the Santiago Quartet, alongside the UK's very own home-grown bandoneon player, Julian Rowlands, and bass player, Tom Mason. ...And if that’s not exciting enough, there will be live tango dancing from dance partners Richard Manuel and Paula Duarte, who performed in Guildford to huge acclaim in the 2018 Spring Music Festival.

GUITARRISIMO | Yiannis Efstathopoulos | 'The Exiled Guitar': Spanish Guitar Music c. 1930

Tue 12 November 2019, 8.00pm
King's College (Chapel)
Strand Lane
London
WC2R 2LS
United Kingdom

In tandem with the Instituto Cervantes' conference on Spanish exile, Guitarist Yiannis Efstathopoulos presents the UK launch of his recently-released album, Seis Caprichos, on the Passacaille label - a project re-framing the modern Spanish classical guitar canon around the largely forgotten output of the so-called Generation ’27. Composed in the 1930s, this music was only revived and published in recent decades; having fallen victim to the ravages of the Spanish Civil War, its composers were either assassinated or exiled by the Franco regime. The first guitar works to be written by non-guitarist composers, they represent part of the compelling zeitgeist of an era protagonised by the genius of Federico García Lorca, at a fascinating time when the guitar was still searching for its place and formulating its identity within the art music of Spain and beyond.

Greek guitarist Yiannis Efstathopoulos is a passionate performer and researcher of Spanish music who has performed and lectured in major concert halls, festivals and conferences worldwide. His studies include Classical Guitar, Early Plucked Instruments, Composition and World Music at the University of Macedonia, the State Conservatory of Thessaloniki and Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels (where he now works as a teacher and assistant researcher), as well as the Academia Chigiana in Siena and the Emilio Pujol Catedra Cervera. In recent years he has specialised in historical performance practices, and the Spanish Romantic Guitar in particular. As a PhD candidate at the Free University of Brussels he is currently completing his thesis on the Spanish Generation of ‘27. Yiannis performs on a guitar inspired by Santos Hernández, made by Christopher Dean.

GéNIA | Piano-Yoga® Immersive Concert: 'Latin Vibes'

Thu 14 November 2019, 7.30pm
The Swiss Church
79 Endell Street
London
WC2H 9DY
United Kingdom

'An outstanding musician.' The Times

Welcome to an exciting new classical event concept and the chance to improve your health and wellbeing aided by the holistic musical art of inimitable Russian concert pianist, composer and qualified BWY yoga instructor, GéNIA.

In this immersive event, GéNIA - founder of the ground-breaking Piano-Yoga® method - invites you to participate in a true 'Piano-Yoga®' experience uniting mind, body and spirit. A fresh and unique response to the current 'yoga class with live music' craze, the session will pair specific yoga exercises with complementary musical performances in a symbiotic way to allow each to inform and enhance the other. Participants will be led through various yoga postures and yogic breathing exercises in between guided musical listening segments as part of a specially-curated programme designed specifically to sharpen awareness, uplift and energise. Inspired by the mystical music of Spanish composer Federico Mompou, GéNIA also harnesses the zesty and upbeat Latin vibes of Piazzolla alongside music by Scarlatti, Japanese Buddhist composer Somei Satoh and compositions from her own recently-released album Babylon. The Swiss Church, located in the heart of Covent Garden, offers the perfect setting in which to hear this luminous music, with its bright, contemporary space and clean and spacious environment. Prepare to leave this event transformed, refreshed and ready for the weekend!

PLUS Ticket includes a complimentary glass of Spanish wine and the chance to mingle and meet the artist after the event!

No previous experience of yoga is required. We recommend that you bring your yoga mat, yoga block and belt, if you have them, and be ready to take your shoes off. But if you prefer not to take part in any of the practical exercises, just sit back and enjoy the music! (Chairs will be provided.)

An enigma of the music world, GéNIA has a diverse repertoire and an enthralling stage presence. Following performances at Wigmore Hall, Southbank Centre and St Martin-in-the-Fields to name just a few, GéNIA’s concerts often take a form of a show, rather than a classical concert, as she loves to connect with her audience and make the experience very personal. GéNIA is a Caffè Nero featured classical artist and has recently enjoyed success as a composer with the release of her latest solo piano album Babylon alongside several sold-out London shows, whilst her music has been featured on the critically-acclaimed BBC TV series Killing Eve, the ITV series Cold Feet, Classic FM, BBC Radio 2, BBC London Radio, and Talk Radio, as well as in various other TV series and adverts.

Lorena Paz Nieto & Helen Glaisher-Hernández | 'Mujeres ¡Presentes!': The Secret Songs of Latina Women Composers

Fri 15 November 2019, 8.00pm
October Gallery
24 Old Gloucester Street, Holborn
London
WC1N 3AL
United Kingdom

'So beautiful!' BBC Radio 4 (Woman's Hour)

In the relatively macho world of Latino culture, it is paradoxically refreshing to know that some of Spain and Latin America's greatest composers and writers are in fact women. In this event we invite you to enter the captivating world of Luso-Hispanic art song as conceived by its most outstanding and beguiling women authors. Discover the compelling voices of women poets and musicians spanning three centuries from all corners of the Latin world, including Spain, Cuba, Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico, presented by two pre-eminent female Spanish-British artists specialising in this repertoire: soprano Lorena Paz Nieto and pianist Helen Glaisher-Hernández.

Alongside the more established names of composers such as Teresa Carreño, Chiquinha Gonzaga, Gisela Hernández, and some of the pillars of Luso-Hispanic letters like Santa Teresa de Ávila, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz and Gabriela Mistral, the concert also presents the forgotten treasures and forbidden songs of some twenty lesser-known authors, including several British premieres and the celebration of two 2019 centenaries: Hilda Pires dos Reis (1919-2001, Brazil) and María Alvarez Ríos (1919-2010, Cuba). The artists will introduce you to the incredible personalities of all these creative women and the inspiring, and often tragic, biographical stories behind their art.

Difficult to define collectively, the songs in this eclectic programme broach a kaleidoscope of themes, covering everything from love, motherhood and gender politics to less stereotypically 'femenine' subjects such as landscape, philosophy and spirituality, articulated through a multitude of musical languages and influences as diverse as plainchant, folk music, jazz, tango, zarzuela, children's songs, Romanticism, film music and various avant-gardes. The best reason to come along to this event is, however, not to hear some great women composers, but simply to hear some great composers! Prepare yourself for an evening of lyric revelations and essential new musical acquaintances that might just leave you wondering how you ever managed to live without them.​..

Workshop for Singers: Come & Sing Mexican Baroque Choral Gems with Jagoba Fadrique

Sat 16 November 2019, 10.30am
St Botolph-without-Bishopsgate
Bishopsgate
London
EC2M 3TL
United Kingdom

If you are an amateur singer passionate about classical music with some prior experience of choral performance, treat yourself to an uplifting workshop on 16 November in the atmospheric Baroque surroundings of St Botolph-without-Bishopsgate's Church, and come and see what this feel-good choral craze is all about – it's the perfect opportunity to exercise and socialise!

In celebration of the 2019 quatercentenary of Mexican Baroque composer Juan García de Zéspedes (ca. 1619–1678), this one-day workshop will explore a selection of Zéspedes' works alongside others by his fellow Choirmasters at the Puebla Cathedral in Mexico where he was maestro de capilla: Gaspar Fernandes, Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla and Antonio de Salazar. This varied programme of small-scale works will comprise texts in Spanish, Latin, Creole (and Náhuatl!).

You’ll be amazed how quickly you can learn a new piece with the help of our friendly conductor Jagoba Fadrique - one of the UK's most sought-after Spanish singers and specialist Hispanic choral directors. In the UK Fadrique has collaborated with the Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields and the Coro Cervantes (with whom he is currently Associate Conductor), and with many of Spain's leading choral ensembles, as well as Early music groups such as the Schola Gregoriana of Cambridge. Appearances include some of the UK's most prestigious venues, including St John’s Smith Square, Wigmore Hall and the Globe. His performances have been broadcast on the BBC, RTVE, RNE, KBS (Korea), NPO (Holland) and he has recorded for numerous labels, including Signum Records, RTVE Música, and NB Musika.

Juan García de Zéspedes Ay que me abraso | Convidando está la noche | Hermoso amor que forxas | Salve Regina
Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla Ah, siolo Flasiquiyo | Las estrellas se ríen | Stabat Mater | Versa est in luctum
Gaspar Fernandes Magnificat | Tleycantimo Choquiliya | Un relox a visto Andrés | Xicochi conetzintle

Lacock Scholars | 'Zéspedes 400': Choral Treasures of the Mexican Baroque

Sat 16 November 2019, 7.00pm
St Botolph-without-Bishopsgate
Bishopsgate
London
EC2M 3TL
United Kingdom

The city of Puebla in Mexico was founded in 1531, and by the 17th century had become a cultural jewel in the Spanish colonial crown. Initially, the music at Puebla's famous cathedral was led by composers brought to Mexico from Spain and Portugal, such as Gaspar Fernandes or the famous Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla, who had already developed a career in Spain before arriving in Puebla in his early 30s, in 1622. Under his leadership the musical establishment there reached its zenith, and into this flourishing environment was born Puebla's native Mexican maestro, Juan García de Zéspedes (1619 – 1678).

Join us for a colourful concert of Mexican Baroque choral treasures performed by the UK's premier amateur consort, The Lacock Scholars, in celebration of Zéspedes' 400th birthday. Conducted by Greg Skidmore, one of the country's leading specialist performers of Renaissance polyphony, the group will present a selection of Zéspedes' works alongside others by his fellow Choirmasters at the Puebla Cathedral, and selected Spanish Renaissance masterworks that were also an integral part of Zéspedes' repertoire. The concert will be in the characteristic Lacock Scholars style; seamless and without applause, allowing you to approach the music on your own terms, surrounded by the magnificent architecture of one of east London's hidden gem Baroque churches, St Botolph-without-Bishopsgate.

PLUS Ticket includes a complimentary glass of Spanish wine and the chance to mingle and meet the musicians after the performance!
