Clara Rodriguez – Saturday 28th April

£15.00

Saturday 7:30pm, Oswald Elliott Hall, St Paul’s Street, PE9 1QD

Clara Rodriguez is one of the most distinguished international pianists working in the country. Well-known for her championing of South American composers alongside music from the traditional classical canon, her extraordinary discography and the ‘alluring vivacity’ of her playing has earned her high praise from the likes of Gramophone.

For this evening concert, Rodriguez has designed a fantastic programme for our enjoyment: five solo pieces, highlighting a repertoire of composers from Cuba and her native Venezuela; a world premiere for violin and piano by renowned Venezuelan composer Miguel Astor; and finally, a selection of works by Astor Piazzolla to round off an evening of heady South American charm.
