GUITARRISIMO | Eduardo Martín & Ahmed Dickinson: 'Sones y flores'

Wed 29 March 2017, 7.00pm
St Peter's Church
119, Eaton Square
United Kingdom

'The Piazzolla of Cuban Guitar.' World Radio Geneva
'A true pioneer.' 
Classic FM Magazine

Eduardo Martín’s style has an expansive sense of freedom that taps into pre-Columbian traditions, jazz, flamenco, pop, Afro and traditional Cuban music. The guitar is his favored instrument to mirror the melodic and rhythmic facets of the Americas’ cultural diversity. Ahmed Dickinson Cárdenas took lessons with Eduardo in Cuba, and their friendship and musical empathies have since grown to form a unique project. This recital offers an introduction to of some of Martin’s most alluring works for two guitars, where rock merges with son montunos; old Yoruba chants, feel-good rumbas, funk-boleros, new-age tunes and cinematic pieces sit alongside Cuban tumbaos with slap bass.

'Secretos quiero descubrir': Spanish Music for Voice, Violin and Guitar

Gudrún Olafsdóttir mezzo-soprano
Roncesvalles Duo
violin & guitar

Secretos quiero descubrir (Secrets I Wish to Reveal) is the extraordinarily haunting album of Spanish song by the mezzo-soprano Gudrun Olafsdottir and the Roncesvalles Duo (Elena Jáuregui, violin, and Francisco Javier Jáuregui, guitar). This is their first recording together as a trio, though they all have considerable international success individually and as two respective duos.

The natural empathy between the trio is most perfectly distilled in this album, born of individual experience and performing together live. This recording conveys a wonderful lightness of touch, which makes it an absolute joy to explore.

The trio wear lightly their depth of understanding of the fascinating...
