Journey through Mexico with striking chamber works

Queen Elizabeth Hall, London


Join us for a journey through Mexico that features striking chamber works, unconventional musical experiences, and the experimental song Preludio a Colón

Described by Kate Molleson as a 'confounding mix of absolutist, traditionalist, visionary and shameless revisionist', Carrillo never ceases to surprise, in his music as well as his words. 

Blending traditional western scoring with microtonal experiments that 'skew the familiar in the uncanny fantastical'. 

Coined the 'Mexican Bartók', Silvestre Revueltas was another avant-garde provocateur of Central American new music that didn't quite fit the mould.
