The December concert really is something different and has a Latin American flavour. The ensemble Classico Latino features violinist Harriet Mackenzie whom many will know from her Kosmos trio.Classico Latino was born in 1998 following a chance encounter between Columbian pianist Ivan Guevara and English cellist Graham Walker. Ever since, the group has developed it’s uniquely powerful blend of Classical finesse and Latino flair, entertaining audiences from Ronnie Scott’s jazz club in London to the foothills of the Columbian AndesClassico Latino has a proud history of recordings, releasing five studio albums since 2009. The latest, Havana Classic, named runner-up Album of the Year in the 2019 UK Latin Awards, was released in Sept 2019. It captures the essence of Cuba’s traditional music reimagined through the unique arrangements and sound of Classico Latino. For this recording, made in the famous EGREM studios in Havana, Classico Latino collaborated with a number of eminent Cuban musicians, notably the legendary jazz violinist Omar Puente. This project, which combines the authentic soul and tradition of Cuba with the passion and elegance of classical strings, offers an entirely new experience, bringing together two worlds in a sound full of warmth, joy and colour."a unique fusion of Latin and Classical with beautiful musicality" UK Latin Awards
