How would Chopin’s music sound if he had been born in the Caribbean?
A vital influence on the ebullient classical music scene of the 19th-century Antilles, Chopin inspired several generations of composers from Haiti to Curaçao, including the so-called ‘Chopin of the Caribbean’ himself, the Cuban Ernesto Lecuona.
Illustrious pianists Clara Rodríguez and Gustavo Corrales Romero join forces to pay tribute to the 2017 anniversaries of two respective compatriot figureheads of this rich legacy of 19th-century Caribbean composers: the Cuban Manuel Saumell and from the Caribbean mainland the Venezuelan Teresa Carreño. Leading ambassadors of this repertoire, they present a colourful programme blending Romantic lyricism with toe-tapping rhythms.
This event is part of Echoes Festival 2017, organised by ILAMS and the Instituto Cervantes with the kind support of KyG Productions
