Coffee Concert

Lawrence Power (viola)
Huw Watkins (piano)

Huw Watkins – Fantasy
Falla – Seven Spanish folksongs
Prokofiev (arr. Borisovsky) – Eight pieces from Romeo and Juliet

A compelling programme played by an outstanding duo. Huw Watkins’s Fantasy was inspired by and dedicated to his regular duo partner. Lawrence Power. They also present Falla’s famous collection of Spanish folksongs, which effortlessly evoke the sights and sounds of Murcia, Asturias, Aragon and Andalusia. The concert culminates in the drama of Prokofiev’s vivid and exuberant ballet masterpiece, inspired by a Shakespearian tale of struggle, betrayal and love.

‘Power’s viola tone is breathtakingly beautiful, rich and poetic, but such is his insight that the music, rather than his technique, is what commands attention’ – The Guardian
