Silk, Memory & Passion // Chinese Music Ensemble & Tango Ensemble

Musical moments from the 1840s to the 1950s

Free event. Bookings not required.

First up, the Chinese Music Ensemble play Ren Guang's Colourful Clouds Chasing the Moon (彩云追月). Then Rachel Woolley's flute and Manuel Diewald's guitar offer us memories of the cafes of 1930s Buenos Aires in Piazzolla's famous evocation. Ryan Nguyen will transport us to Paris, a century earlier, with his performance of Chopin’s sublime fourth Ballade. This will be followed by the Tu Tango Mi Milonga Orquesta, playing classic tangos from the golden age of this style. Swoon and sigh to our sensuous melancholy and passion.
