Colombian high-flyer conductor Lina Gonzales-Granados delves deep into the incredible variety of American music. The Violin Concerto of early 20th-century master Samuel Barber is glowingly melodic in a Romantic vein. The soloist is Christel Lee, first-prize winner of the 2015 Jean Sibelius Violin Competition. Works by Jessie Montgomery and George Walker introduce voices of African-American composers, while Tangazo by Argentinean tango reformer Astor Piazzolla evokes the colourful sights and sounds of Buenos Aires.

Meet the Artists after the concert, Tapiola Hall. Arranged by the Friends of Sinfonietta Society.
