Helen will be appearing at Bolívar Hall in London on 24th November with Venezuelan pianist Clara Rodríguez, Spanish soprano Amaia Azcona (TangOpera Duo) and American actor William Roberts, presenting a programme of Latin American classics to celebrate the centenaries of composers Alberto Ginastera and Antonio Estévez.
Celebrating the Centenaries of Estévez and Ginastera
'Clara Rodríguez is a poet of the piano.' Antonio Estévez
'A duo of almost telepathic consonance.' Music & Vision
Enjoy an uplifting evening of Latin American classical music at London’s intimate Venezuelan chamber music venue, the Bolívar Hall. ‘Venezuelan virtuoso’ pianist Clara Rodríguez (The Telegraph) joins forces with TangOpera Duo to mark the centenary of her compatriot, composer Antonio Estévez (1916-1988) with a concert showcasing his works for piano and voice as part of a vibrant programme of piano pieces by some of the giants of Latin American classical music, including the seminal Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera (Argentina)(1916-1983), who also celebrates his centenary this year.
Antonio Estévez is one of the most important Venezuelan composers of the 20th century, known especially for his Cantata criolla and Mediodía en el llano, recorded by the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra in 2008. A leading light of the Parisian-Venezuelan avant garde, Estévez’s music stands out for its rare beauty and profound originality. In Clara Rodríguez, Estévez has a longstanding ambassador for his legacy – her successful campaign to establish his output on the ABRSM 2015-2016 exam syllabus saw his music performed by thousands of pianists in the UK. Heard here alongside some of Latin America’s most famous composers, such as Villa-Lobos (Brazil) and Cervantes (Cuba), this event places Estévez firmly amongst the panoply of Latin America’s ‘Great’ composers. If you are unfamiliar with his music, this programme will be a revelation. An event not to be missed!
