Lotte Betts-Dean and Andrey Lebedev
Wednesday 29 April 2020
Singer Lotte Betts-Dean and guitarist Andrey Lebedev make an unusual and highly engaging artistic pairing, praised for their vivid and characterful expressiveness, and razor-sharp musicianship.
In this memorably entertaining program, they bring the great classical traditions of Spanish art-song and flamboyant guitar technique to the Musica Viva stage, topping it off with music by Antônio Carlos Jobim, the inventor of Bossa Nova – a luxurious fusion of jazz and Brazilian music for guitar and voice which has been described as the aural equivalent of relaxing slowly into a warm bath.
