meeting leo brower - Lux Nova in conzert

10.9.2022: For guitarists and lovers of guitar music, Cuban master Leo Brouwer is a living legend, but with his gripping, pulsating and multi-layered music, the Grammy winner deserves more attention! He composed for important musicians like the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Yo-Yo Ma or Andreas Scholl. In the unusual instrumentation of accordion (Lydia Schmidl) and guitar (Jorge Paz Verastegui), the duo presents smaller and larger works by Brouwer, such as his Souvenir de Liège, the extended Triptico concertante, or the centuries-spanning Folía a través de los siglos. Through Lux Nova's subtle playing, we discover Brouwer's stylistic range, from Cuban rhythms to advanced new tonal language. All of the works on the program were written in collaboration with the composer or dedicated to the duo. Their eponymous CD Meeting Leo Brouwer will be released this month.
