MORGAN SZYMANSKI & O DUO

THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 Morgan Szymanski, guitar Oliver Cox, percussion Owen Gunnell, percussion Since making an outstandingly successful debut as a trio in Lucerne, O Duo and Morgan Szymanski have gone on to record and give concerts in the UK, Paris and Spain. Their programmes include some show-stopping arrangements of music by Latin American composers from Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Venezuela and others, making for a wonderfully invigorating evening of sheer colour, rhythm, wit and dazzling virtuosity. Tonight’s concert features music by Piazzolla, Bellinati and Machado amongst others and the world premiere of a new work especially written for them by Stephen McNeff called Los Ambulantes. These are the street people of Mexico City who move through the traffic like jugglers and acrobats. O Duo also performs music by Chopin and Minoru Miki’s mesmerizing Marimba Spiritual and Morgan performs music by Agustin Barrios Mangore. The concert finishes at approximately 9.15pm
