A Journey Through Languages and Styles: Livestreamed concert

A Journey Through Languages and Styles: Livestreamed concert
24 September 2020, 7.30pm - 9.00pm
Online event

We’re delighted to welcome one of Brazil’s leading classical musicians, pianist Clélia Iruzun, performing alongside soprano Gabriella Di Laccio and flutist Lucas Jordan in a concert livestreamed from London’s elegant 1901 Arts Club.  

The concert is part of a series with music charity Poliphonia, founded in 2017 by Clélia with Renato Martins, the violinist Nadia Myerscough, the cellist Nick Roberts and double bass player Sarah Neil, with the purpose of promoting the music of the Americas. In partnership with the Cross-Language Dynamics project, they are staging a series of musical events in 2020, premiering an innovative range of works by Latin American composers in the UK.

Following the success of Poliphonia’s first concert at the University of London in February – an introduction to the solo guitar works of Heitor Villo-Lobos – this second event takes its audience on a musical journey from across the Americas and beyond, from the Amazon to the Irish countryside.

Originally scheduled to take place in Senate House, this event will now be livestreamed from the Arts Club's intimate salon-style space in the heart of London.
