Trio Sine Nomine: Los premios municipales y algo mas

Pretal PRCD 147
Reviewed by RAY PICOT

We are in the company of an exceptional trio on this disc, which is by turns adventurous and illuminating. The musicians (Amalia Del Giudice, clarinet, Rafael Delgado Spinoza, cello and Estela Telerman, piano) are very well matched and this disc is a testament to their harmony and understanding.

Transformations Music Series: Music for Strings and Skins


Fri 27 September 2013, 7.30pm
Bolívar Hall
54, Grafton Way
W1T 5D
United Kingdom

'Dario Rossetti Bonell rises to the occasion with some breathtaking feats of unshowy skill in music that needs virtuosity of the spirit as much as the fingers.' BBC Music Magazine

Dario Rossetti-Bonell (guitar) and Magnus Mehta (drums/percussion) make a rare appearance together at the Bolivar Hall on September 27th. They will perform an eclectic range of unique and pensive compositions inspired by their mixed heritage and contemporary influences such as Guinga, Ellroy and Piñero. Appreciation for their musical talent is reflected in the spectrum of projects they have been involved in - from recitals to film soundtracks, working with luminaries such as Hans Zimmer, Michel Legrand, Stephen Warbeck, Sting, Ballet Rambert, John Williams, Melt Yourself Down, Soloists of the Royal Opera House, the RSC, Owiny Sigoma Band and Shakespeare's Globe.
