‘The Argentine Guitar’ Thursday November 22nd Nov @ 7.30pm
Darío Barozzi is an artist who defies categorisation, his music existing happily at the intersection between the classical and the popular, moving seamlessly between art music, tango, folk and free improvisation.
Making his UK debut, Barozzi is joined by special guest, pre-eminent Cuban flautist, José Zalba-Smith with an eclectic programme exploring the many facets of the Argentine guitar, including a rare opportunity to hear an especially authentic rendition of Astor Piazzolla’s Histoire du tango.
