An evening of colourful music from Morocco and Spain, in which the celebrated Spanish-born mezzo-soprano, Clara Mouriz, joins the English Chamber Orchestra conducted by Garry Walker, in the original 1915 version of Manuel de Falla’s El Amor Brujo.
The young Moroccan pianist, Dina Bensaid, makes her London debut with Ahmed Essyad’s Nadim and the brilliant Swiss guitarist, Christoph Denoth, performs Maurice Ohana’s nine-string guitar concerto, Trois Graphiques.
