Mexican guitarist Morgan Szymanski was highlighted as ‘one to watch’ by Gramophone magazine. For his second Conway Hall concert, he comes together with the Benyounes Quartet in a programme spanning more than two hundred years, including his own arrangements of Piazzolla and Puccini’s Cristantemi, composed in a single night in 1890, in response to the death of the Duke of Savoy.
There will also be a short audience question and answer session with the musicians after the performance.
