Mercedes Gancedo c Lucas Sanchez

Goya & Granados

25 October 2023, 9:30pm - 10:15pm

Catalan composer Enrique Granados was a fine painter himself, and had a near obsession with the works of visionary artist Francisco Goya. Granados made his name with his cycle of piano pieces, Goyescas, but his 'Tonadillas', a vibrant set of twelve songs, were also written in direct response to Goya's works. In the second event today celebrating the centenary of Victoria de los Angeles, in partnership with LIFE Victoria, we welcome back the Barcelona-based Argentinian soprano Mercedes Gancedo to perform this cycle, complemented by readings and projections.
