Montero And Manchester Camerata
Date: Thursday 19th November 2015 19:30
Venue: Lancaster University, Lancaster
We welcome two of the world’s most versatile artists to light up the stage for this dynamic and eclectic programme – pianist Gabriela Montero and Camerata’s former leader, Giovanni Guzzo. 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 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.
