Elena Riu 'The Ancestors'
Piano Recital
Sunday 11th May 2014
 
 

In May, Cooper Hall hosts a concert with a completely different flavour from Venezuelan born Elena Riu who will perform a dynamic Hispanic programme.  The Ancestors is a lively and colourful selection of works which trace the influences and confluences between Spanish and South American music and beyond through a range of composers from Bach to the present day.
