Concertina at the Oxford Sheldonian

Concertina at the Oxford Sheldonian

A collaboration with Julian Rowlands and the Salisbury Community Choir, featuring works for bandoneon and string quartet. 

Concert’ina
Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford at 7.30pm

Concert’ina will be a fabulous celebration of Latin rhythms.  A delicious salsa of harmonies, conjuring smoky milongas in flamboyant Buenos Aires.  Fiery tangos meet staccato Glorias with a sprinkling of sultry ‘Strings’.

Santiago Quartet, a stunning group of strings specialising in Argentinian and Latin American music are joined by Julian Rowlands, renowned Bandoneon player,  David Coram on piano and the Salisbury Community Choir: artfully brought together by conductor, Jeremy Backhouse.

From Palmeri's striking Mass – Misa a Buenos Aires ‘Misa Tango’ and Piazolla’s Las Cuatro Estaciones Portenas (Four Seasons) to extracts from Morricone’s ‘The Mission’ and a lighthearted ‘Guantanamera’.

The concert is supporting Mind, the leading mental health charity.

Duration: 1 hour 50mins with interval
