Music Around The World

Around the world in 120 minutes

The next Bath Recitals concert on 30 September takes us on an exciting musical journey of discovery around the globe with Music Around the World.

Andrey Lebedev is one of the most successful young guitarists of his generation, while Bronte Hudnott performs as guest principal flute with the Philharmonia and Halle orchestras.

This programme will include de Falla’s Canciones Populares Espanolas – a gem of the Spanish repertoire infusing traditional song with flamenco, and Australian Philip Houghton’s evocative impression of the outback.

Colourful music by the Brazilian Villa-Lobos contrasts with Japanese composer Takemitsu’s mystical and evocative Towards the Sea. Robert Beazer’s Mountain Songs takes us to his native Appalachians while in Histoire du Tango Piazzolla transports us to the tango and the bordelos of Buenos Aires.
