The Bath Festival Orchestra embarks on a journey through South America, starting off in Brazil with Villa-Lobos’ Guitar Concerto, starring renowned soloist Ahmed Dickinson.

This piece is followed by an all-strings programme, in which the BFO will first visit Cuba – with more modern sounds by Leo Brouwer in his Canciones Remotas, then move through Venezuela with the beautiful Serenade for Strings by ‘Valkyrie of the Piano’ Teresa Carreño, who was fortunate to have seen many parts of the world in her own journeys. The evening ends with a bang in Argentina with a performance of Alberto Ginastera’s full-of-fireworks Concerto for Strings.

This is a Bath Festival Orchestra promotion.
