The warm climate of Italian and Spanish-speaking countries is the inspiration behind Latino Love Affair. Think hot sunny days, languid evenings and sudden thunderstorms. In a mixed program from the past and present we bring the pizzazz and energy of Pablo Escande’s Capricho, a musical episode in the life of Don Quixote in May Howlett’s Tilting at Windmills and take you to sultry danger-filled nights in Buenos Aires with Piazzolla’s Fuga y misterio.
In addition, an untypical concerto by Alessandro Scarlatti and two concertos by Bach and Benda who, judging by the Italian style they have adopted so whole-heartedly, wished they had lived there. Our harpsichord soloist is Michael Tsalka whose virtuosic and expressive playing was lauded at his last visit in 2017.
Featured non-Australian music: Pablo Escande, Astor Piazzolla, Arvo Part, Georg Benda, Scarlatti, J.S. Bach
