‘One of the world’s greatest classical pianists.’ The Daily Mail

‘A revelation.’ The Independent

It's Bach to Brazil with virtuoso pianist Marcelo Bratke and his latest project 'Bach and Bachianas' - a celebration of Latin classical piano music exploring 20th-century musical dialogues between Europe and Brazil. Bach's iconic Partita No. 1 in B Flat Major is juxtaposed with the Bachianas brasileiras No. 4, one of the great masterworks of Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos, fusing Baroque counterpoint with Brazilian rhythm and soul. Villa-Lobos stands as one of the most prolific composers of the 20th century - an 'enfant terrible' to the establishment who, like Bratke, is renowned for his exuberant and colourful visionary landscapes. To mark the 150th anniversary of Villa-Lobos' contemporary, seminal Brazilian composer Ernesto Nazareth, the concert also gives a taste of Nazareth's 'Brazilian tangos' and how these provided a direct influence on the piano music of French composer Darius Milhaud.

Opening for Marcelo Bratke is the duo TangOpera, showcasing the classical world of Latin American song.

This concert is organised by ILAMS in collaboration with ¡Como No! as part of La Linea festival, with the kind support of TAM and Arts Council England.
