The multi-award winning virtuoso Mexican guitarist performs a programme of great guitar music from Latin America.

Presented with SOAS and Iberian & Latin American Music Society, in celebration of ILAMS 25th anniversary.

“The whole of this programme is very much influenced by folk music from Mexico, Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina. Yes, some of the works are written or arranged by ´classical´ composers but I have chosen the pieces because they clearly show a perfect marriage/crossover of styles between academic and folk idioms.” Morgan Szymanski

The programme includes pieces by Mexican composers Julio César Oliva and Manuel M. Ponce; Leo Brouwer from Cuba; Agustín Barrios Mangoré from Paraguay; Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos; and the Argentinian composers Jorge Cardoso and Astor Piazzolla.

Morgan started playing the guitar at the age of six. Early studies at the National Music School in Mexico and the Edinburgh Music School led to a scholarship to study under Carlos Bonell and Gary Ryan at the Royal College of Music.
