Programme Note

Lunch concert on Monday, 20 February 2017 at 1.05pm, The Wren Church of St Martin Within Ludgate  *  40 Ludgate Hill, EC4M 7 London.

The paradoxical term "White Shadows" can refer to problems in life that don't leave negative sequels or by-products. It also means: foreshadows of good things to come. And if shadows are like a mirror of our bodies (or souls), a "white shadow" reflects the luminous part of us.

Translated into everyday language: it's about music that underlines our most positive aspects. Entertaining, but with depth.

Most of today's pieces are part of the upcoming album "Sombras blancas" (White Shadows), which will be ...hopefully soon... available on online platforms such as Spotify or iTunes.

The influence of tango music in this programme is undeniable (after all, our today's pianist is Argentina-born); however, today's music goes beyond tango and depicts the pianist's classical background – such as Chopin.
