Description

This is a combination to arouse one’s curiosity: “artiste étoile” Sheku Kanneh-Mason will perform his first solo recital accompanied not by piano but by guitar! To this end, he has teamed up with the Brazilian Plínio Fernandes, who has long been a star in his native country because of the way in which he so artfully combines saudade, or wistful world-weariness, with classical guitar style. The most famous Brazilian composer is of course on the agenda as Kanneh-Mason and Fernandes open this atmospheric Late Night concert with the seraphic Aria from the Bachianas brasileiras by Heitor Villa-Lobos. It will conjure an enchanting evening mood. But they will entice us to imagine a smoky nightclub in Buenos Aires at the end when they play the tango rhythms of Astor Piazzolla. The instrumental colors of the cello and guitar blend fantastically: Kanneh-Mason and Fernandes make music with one breath and heartbeat. Because the two musicians enjoy it so much, they have commissioned new works from Leo Brouwer and Rafael Marino Arcaro for their unusual duo. And they have unearthed a sonata by Radamés Gnattali, who died in 1988, which makes us dream of the beauty of South America.
