Curate – Two Nations TangoPublished Tuesday 31 August 2021
Curated by Gideon Brooks
Celebrating Wales’ link with South America, Sinfonia Cymru presents a unique ensemble: violin, cello, double bass, trumpet and piano. This is an exploration of tango music and the traditional music of Wales as you’ve never heard them before. Featuring music by Argentine tango composer Piazzolla and a compilation of Welsh folk tunes with a twist.
We are grateful to The Radcliffe Trust, Garrick Charitable Trust and Idlewild Trust for their support of the Curate series.
