From Classical music to Flamenco

Duo_Flamenco poster3rd Feb, 2015

Edouard Michelin Auditorium

At 7:00 pm

Free passes available at the reception of Alliance Française of Madras

Guitar: Serge Lopez

Piano: Nathalie Marin

 

Serge Lopez and Nathalie Marin met during a concert with the Symphony Orchestra of Cannes. They both played different music– flamenco and classical music respectively – and decided to bring the styles together. The colors and the very particular sound of the flamenco guitar bring out rich tones in the sensual music of Debussy, Ravel or Massenet, all fascinated by Spain and Andalusia. Serge Lopez also performs compositions from his own repertoire, inspired from jazz and flamenco.

On the program:

 Sous les nuages, Paseo en Cadix, Sur, Nomada, Barrio Latino , La Familia, Apallosa, Quisiera, compositions by Serge Lopez and Gymnopédie by Erik Satie, Pavane by Faure, Danse profane danse sacrée , ballade by Debussy, Habanera by Maurice Rave
