Nazareth Among Friends: Online lecture with Poliphonia

Online event

The third and final event in our series with Poliphonia is a lecture by distinguished scholar Luis Antônio de Almeida with illustrations at the piano with Clélia Iruzun, one of Brazil's leading classical musicians.

This musical journey explores the work of the Brazilian composer Ernesto Nazareth, known as the inventor of Brazilian tango, tracing his influence on the next generations of composers in Brazil. The evening includes work by Nazareth, Francisco Mignone, Marlos Nobre, Arnaldo Rebello and others. 

Poliphonia is a music charity 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.

Originally scheduled to take place in Senate House, this lecture will now be hosted via Facebook Live on Poliphonia's Facebook page.

This free event will be live on Wednesday 30 September at 7:30pm BST. Booking is not necessary, but by doing so you will be sent a reminder containing the Facebook Live link.

Organised by the Institute of Modern Languages Research and the Institute of Latin American Studies. It is part of the Open World Research Initiative (OWRI) Cross-Language Dynamics: Reshaping Community, Translingual Strand.
