Classico Latino & Friends : Journey Through Latin America

The trio Classico Latino was formed in Cambridge University in 1999 by Colombian pianist Ivan Guevara and rising rising stars of the British classical music scene, cellist Graham Walker and violinist Lizzie Ball. They developed an original style by audaciously combining traditional Latin American melodies and rhythms with classical music techniques. These groundbreaking arrangements, along with their own compositions, are deliciously performed with verve and virtuosity, creating music with an extraordinary appeal to people from all cultural backgrounds.
The trio’s album Classico Latino & Friends Journey Through Latin America was recorded last year at the legendary Abbey Road Studios and presents iconic melodies and songs from across the continent, including a beautifully arranged tango in Carlos Gardel’s El día que me quieras, the traditional Venezuelan joropo Alma Llanera, and the timeless song Gracias a la vida by Chilean composer Violeta Parra. The album also presents original new works from the trio and Colombian composers.

This is music that crosses borders and simultaneously demonstrates the extraordinary breadth and colour of Latin America with the beauty of the classical idiom. Classico Latino will take you on a musical journey through Latin America.
