AHMED DICKINSON CARDENAS & EDUARDO MARTÍN

The mixture of the virtuosity and the emotional and soothing quality of the works they perform characterizes Eduardo Martín and Ahmed Dickinson’s concerts. The audience is captivated from their first note to the last by their command over the instrument and the often-intricate instrumental pieces. The music played during each concert is a very meticulous selection of works by Eduardo Martín.

AHMED DICKINSON CARDENAS & HELEN SANDERSON

Known for their extraordinary level of musicianship and technical virtuosity, renowned guitarists Helen Sanderson and Ahmed Dickinson Cárdenas join forces in a recital that offers a rare insight into the vast wealth of rhythms and genres that enriches the guitar repertoire from the Americas. With this innovative selection Helen and Ahmed tap into the work of nationalist composers from the late 19th century and traditional Cuban and Brazilian works; the more contemporary and current sounds and tendencies seamlessly blend more than 150 years’ music for two guitars. Equally at home in a classical or world-music setting, these two artists strive to convey through sound some of the magical beauty of a whole continent.

AHMED DICKINSON CARDENAS & DAVID MACGREGOR

CLASSICAL MEETS JAZZ

The concept has been explored more often than we might immediately realize. Since the first decades of the twentieth century, classical musicians have been inspired by the musical creations of jazz musicians and vice versa; Gershwin or Miles Davis are particularly famous references. But what we are now doing with our modest project is establishing a musical dialogue in which the pieces we perform somehow share the same harmonies, structures and textures, amplifying the similarities within our different musical styles. This way we are able to create a sound bridge whose aim is to blur the audience’s perceptions of improvised and non-improvised music.
