Music in the time of Goya

The National Gallery's current exhibition Goya: The Portraits is certainly well worth visiting, and on Friday 27 November there is an additional musical reason too. At 6pm in room 36 (one of the Barry Rooms) there is a concert entitled Music in the time of Goya. The Iberian and Latin American Music Society presents an exploration of the elegant musical aesthetic of Goya's era and its effect on the Romantic imagination of 19th-century composers such as Enrique Granados, and beyond to the 20th-century works of Manuel de Falla, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco and the film music of Roque Baños. 

Expect a colourful programme of fiery Spanish fandangos, seguidillas andboleros alongside well-known classical favourites by Beethoven, Ravel, Scarlatti and Sor, performed by an exciting collective of leading young Iberican artists with special guest, flamenco artist, Nina Corti. Other performers include Violeta Barrena (violin), Elena Jáuregui (violin), Cressida Wislocki (viola), Evva Mizerska (cello), Isabel María Martínez (guitar), Amaia Azcona (soprano), Eduardo Frías (piano), and Helen Glaisher-Hernandez (piano).
