Concert: SONO Ensemble – Southern Rhythms
- Fri 18 Jun 2021
- 7:00 pm
While summer can be associated with many positive things, this year like never before it brings the feeling of hope and freedom. And to all of us at the SONO ensemble freedom is the main quality that links the pieces of our next concert.
‘Southern Rhythms’ will bring you trios by Astor Piazzolla, Chick Corean and Nikolai Kapustin – all of the composers who made a huge impact on the history of music while staying true to their roots and themselves. And if this repertoire already caught your attention, wait till you see the instrument formation on stage.
For the first time SONO is featuring a wind instrument – flute masterfully played by Meera Maharaj together with Gunda Baranauskaite on cello and Ugnius Pauliukonis on piano.
A limited number of in-venue tickets are available for this event, or you can stream for free on YouTube. See all available tickets here.
The SONO ensemble comprises classically-trained musicians, all of whom have graduated with the highest honours from world-renowned conservatoires around the UK. The ensemble formed when Gunda Baranauskaite and Ugnius Pauliukonis, a pair of Lithuanian musicians based in Manchester, UK, found themselves searching for ways to resurrect something that in the very recent past was a part of their existence and more than just a craft.
