The Alliance francaise de Bangalore and the Bangalore School of Music invite you to an enchanting evening of dance and music:
'From Classical Music to Flamenco with Serge Lopez and Nathalie Marin'
Serge Lopez and Nathalie Marin met during a concert with the Symphony Orchestra of Cannes: they both wished to combine their respective music – flamenco and classical music. The colors and the very particular sound of flamenco guitar serve to the sensual music of Debussy, Ravel or Massenet fascinated by Spain and Andalusia. Serge Lopez also interprets compositions of his own repertoire, inspired from jazz and flamenco.
On the program:
- Sous les nuages, Paseo en Cadix, Sur, Nomada, Barrio Latino , La Familia, Apallosa, Quisiera, compositions by Serge Lopez and Gymnopédie by Erik Satie, Pavane by Faure, Danse profane danse sacrée , ballade by Debussy, Habanera by Maurice Ravel…
Serge Lopez and Nathalie interpret this program mainly with symphonic orchestras but they also play it in duo piano guitar, in Tirana (Albania), Quito (Ecuador), la Habana (Cuba) and in France.
Praise for the duo:
“Words could not express with enough power all the emotion, all the poetry which arise from the guitar and voices. Maturity is undeniable, delightful.” - Sur les rails
“Serge Lopez has the gift to switch from one atmosphere to another, while keeping a continuous unity which captures our attention from beginning to end. A great maturity.” - Antoine Drapeaux, Guitar & bass
“Sumptuous arabesques composed and interpreted with care and lightness by an inspired and virtuoso trio, gifted of a bright harmony…” - Voxx
“Simplicity, subtlety and sincerity!” - Le journal des Francofolie.
