Iconic South-American singer-songwriter Gilberto Gil is joined by the London Symphony Orchestra and conductor Francois-Xavier Roth for an evening featuring new arrangements by Jaques Morelenbaum of his own songs, alongside music originating from and influenced by his beloved Brazil.

Gil’s infectious music, with its inimitable combination of rock, roots, samba and reggae, has represented the cosmopolitan sounds of Brazil for the last 46 years, whereas the rich and colourful works of composer Villa-Lobos fuse earlier folk and native tunes with European classical traditions.

Programme:
Villa-Lobos Zoé Act 1: Danca Frenetica
Villa-Lobos Amazonas
Milhaud Saudades do Brasil
Villa-Lobos Chôros No. 10 Rasga o Coração
