Join Spanish virtuoso pianist José Menor and The Latin Classical Chamber Orchestra on an exhilarating musical journey to 18th-century Spain as they mark the 2016 centenary of the great Spanish composer Enrique Granados (1867-1916). This unique multi-media programme, inspired by the life and times of Granados’ greatest muse, the Spanish painter Francisco de Goya (1746-1828), is part of a commemorative world tour launched at New York’s Carnegie Hall in March.

In collaboration with the Latin Classical Chamber Orchestra and special guests including classical guitarist Laura Snowden, soprano Christin Wismann and the illustrious flamenco dancer and percussionist Nina Corti, this exuberant programme also explores the elegant musical aesthetic of Goya's era and its intoxicating effect on the Romantic imagination of Granados’ contemporaries and beyond, to the 20th-century works of de Falla and the film music of Roque Baños. Expect a colourful programme of fiery Spanish fandangos, seguidillas and boleros coupled with well-known classical favourites by Beethoven, Scarlatti and Haydn, set against the Baroque splendour of St John's Smith Square.

Originally curated for The National Gallery as part of its 2015 blockbuster exhibition 'Goya: The Portraits', this ‘simply fascinating’ programme (Genteventos) is accompanied by a stunning visual projection of Goya artworks and will be introduced by Granados’ great-granddaughter Bárbara Granados.

This event is part of Echoes Festival organised by ILAMS in collaboration with the Instituto Cervantes with the kind support of Acción Cultural Española and the Embassy of Spain.
