'This is 100% colossal. Amazing performance by Manu Brazo.'
Spanish saxophonist, Manu Brazo, brings a show-stopping programme of Spanish and Latin favourites to St James's Piccadilly, featuring home-grown classics, Pequeña czarda, by Pedro Iturralde and a transcription of Manuel de Falla's evergreen Siete canciones populares españolas alongside Borne's dazzling paraphrase of Bizet's Carmen, and a foray into the up-beat music of Brazil via Darius Milhaud's toe-tapping Scaramouche. Prepare to be uplifted and entertained!
Manu Brazo is quickly making a name for himself as one of Spain's most exciting rising classical stars, acknowledged as a versatile artist for his natural ability to communicate a fresh and eclectic variety of styles to his audience, bolstered by a unique sound and seemingly effortless virtuosity. He has performed internationally and across some of the UK's most prestigious festivals and venues, including the Royal Opera House, Kings Place and St Martin-in-the Fields, as well as recently opening for Sir Cliff Richard at the Greenwich Music Time Festival. His debut album, Solo Dialogue, was released in June and has already been featured on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM to critical acclaim. Manu Brazo is accompanied by prize-winning Indonesian pianist and RCM graduate, Prajna Indrawati.
