I will be performing Leo Brouwer’s Sonata No.5 “Ars Combinatoria” in the presence of the composer as part of this concert ‘Homage to Leo Brouwer’, curated by Ahmed Dickson. I could not be more excited!! More details below.
Leo Brouwer is one of contemporary music’s living legends. Acclaimed in his youth as one of the all-time great performers of the classical guitar, the Cuban composer is a Honorary Member of UNESCO and is recognised worldwide as the guitar’s most outstanding living composer for the instrument, and as a pioneer in the fusion of musical styles and genres. A selection of leading young musicians honour Brouwer’s visit to the UK with a bespoke programme curated by Cuban guitarist Ahmed Dickinson, featuring some of Brouwer’s most exciting guitar and chamber works, performed in the heavenly classical guitar acoustic of London’s Bolívar Hall in the presence of the composer himself.
