Guzzo Meets Montero
Date: Sunday 22nd November 2015 15:00
Venue: RNCM Concert Hall, Manchester
We welcome two of the world’s most versatile artists to light up the stage for this dynamic and eclectic programme – Camerata’s former leader, Giovanni Guzzo, and pianist Gabriela Montero, who has just won Best Classical Album at the Latin GRAMMYs. Both born in Venezuela, Montero and Guzzo are renowned for performances that brim with energy and colour. Montero&s visionary interpretations and improvisational gifts have won her a devoted following around the world, and she will be inviting the audience to suggest melodies for improvisations at the end of the first half.Both artists will lead you through a changing musical landscape, from the mesmerising Fratres by Arvo Pärt, through Piazzolla’s vibrant and tango-infused Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, to Mozart’s mighty Piano Concerto No.14. We finish with the piece that brought Benjamin Britten to international attention, Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge.
