Sergio Tiempo - Griegs Villa

Sergio Tiempo
A fine selection of late Romantic piano works and music from the Americas.

Argentinian Sergio Tiempo has been a professional pianist since his early teens. Now a highly acclaimed musician, Tiempo recently toured with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel with Music from the Americas.

At this concert Tiempo will perform three of Grieg's Lyric Pieces, Prokofiev's piano arrangements of his classic ballet Romeo and Juliet and six of Chopin's short poetic preludes. 

This is balanced with a selection of twentieth century works from some of South America's most prominent composers: Heitor Villa-Lobos's playful melodies, Astor Piazolla's Nuevo Tango, and Albero Ginastera's fast and furious finale, Malambo, which takes its title from a competitive step dance amongst Argentine 'gaucho' cowboys.
