The first Parisian performance of Chôros 10 provoked a storm, one critic writing, ‘it is an art … to which we must give a new name.’ This exciting piece uses a chorus instrumentally in furiously contrapuntal rhythmic patter, brass and wind providing bizarre bird calls and monkey chatter. There’s no doubt Villa-Lobos was an iconoclast whose raw, zestful music gave expression to a vibrant new polyglot culture. Twice thrown out of the conservatoire he took as much from his experience as a café musician as he did from his beloved Bach.

The concert will finish at approximately 10pm
