- Clara Rodriguez (piano)
Clara Rodriguez will be playing a very special concert in the beautiful Saint Martin-in-the-Fields -Trafalgar Square, the heart of London.
A fascinating and passionate programme of immense works. Starting by two preludes and fugues from the Book II of the Well Tempered Clavier by JS Bach followed by the Appassionata Sonata that was considered by Beethoven to be one of his most tempestuous piano works.
After another energetic and virtuoso sonata such as Prokofieff 3rd I shall perform two pieces from the Brazilian Cycle by Heitor Villa-Lobos, works by Venezuelan lady- composers such as Teresa Carreño and Luisa Elena Paesano, El Puerto from the Suite Iberia by Isaac Albéniz, a version of the nostalgic Argentinean song Alfonsina y el mar and a London Première by guitarrist and composer Luis Zea based on a traditional Joropo form called Yaguazo en contrapunto, a kaleidoscopic piece of enchanting rhythms, accents and surprising harmonies.
