NEXT CONCERT: 27 November at The National Gallery

November 1, 2015

ILAMS is proud to present 'Music in the Time of Goya', a chamber-music celebration of the great Spanish painter Francisco de Goya y Lucientes inspired by The National Gallery's new exhibition, Goya: the Portraits. Join us in the opulent splendour of the National Gallery's Barry Rooms as we explore the elegant musical aesthetic of Goya's era and its intoxicating effect on the Romantic imagination of 19th-century composers such as Enrique Granados, and beyond to the 20th-century works of Manuel de Falla, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco and the film music of Roque Baños. Expect a colourful programme of fiery Spanish fandangos, seguidillas and boleros alongside well-known classical favourites by Beethoven, Ravel, Scarlatti and Sor, performed by an exciting collective of leading young Iberican artists with special guest, flamenco dancer and percussionist, Nina Corti.
