Description

A programme of Spanish vocal classical repertoire and the UK première of a work by the leading composer from Guatemala Roderigo Asturias. Asturias’ teachers were the composers and conductors Messiaen and Dutilleux. On the one hand his work wields a near-Teutonic craft of composition whilst on the other he makes no attempt to deny his Guatemalan roots and strong feelings of the Latin world.

Spanish star soprano Pilar Jurado has worked with major conductors around the world and has recorded with Yamaha, RNE, RTVE, Canal+, Versus, Radio France and Channel Classics y Auvidis.

Programme: Seven Popular Spanish Songs by Manuel de Falla, the UK premiere of The Banquet of Clouds by Rodrigo Asturias and Poem in The Form of Songs by Joaquin Turina.
