2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the Brazilian composer Claudio Santoro (1919-1989), one of the major figures in twentieth-century Brazilian music. His musical legacy includes nearly five hundred compositions. Among them there are fourteen symphonies, several chamber works, concertos, vocal compositions, one opera, film scores, and seventy-three known works for piano solo. Beginning with his very first compositions, his intense and extremely idealistic personality, always searching for new ideas and new musical expressions, led him to explore diverse idioms in his music. This unmissable lecture recital will be presented by the composer’ son Alessandro Santoro, acclaimed harpsichordist and pianist, Brazilian soprano Gabriella Di Laccio and Dr Vinicius Mariano de Carvalho, Lecturer in Brazilian Studies, King’s College London. The concert will present some of Santoro Love Songs – an exquisite cycle written in partnership with Brazilian poet Vinicius de Moraes – as well some of Santoro’s piano preludes.
