Let the London City Philharmonic take you on a symphonic journey through Spain and Latin America this Saturday, 8th February at 7:30pm, as they celebrate the influence of Spanish rhythm and music on the Old and New World.
Led by the London City Philharmonic’s principal conductor and founder Olsi Qinami, the orchestra will perform a beautiful selection of Spanish and Latin American music, including selections from Bizet’s greatest opera Carmen and Mexican composer Arturo Márquez’s Danzón No. 2.
Bizet’s Carmen and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio Español demonstrate the role that Spain played in the imaginations of composers across Europe. These influences were transported across the ocean and mixed with indigenous cultures of Latin American finding their own identity. Marquez’ Danzon No. 2 and Ginastera’s Estancia Suite illustrate the musical results of this effort.
The concert will last approximately 1.5 hours, including an interval in the middle, and it will take place at St Stephen’s Church (Gloucester Road, SW7 4RL). Tickets are available on the door and clicking here.
