|Weekly Recitals Continue at St. Margaret's Church|
This Sunday David Zucchi on saxophone and Inigo Mikeleiz-Berrade on accordion
The Sunday Evening Recital series continues at St Margaret’s in Putney at 6pm this Sunday (17 October) with David Zucchi on saxophone and Inigo Mikeleiz-Berrade on accordion.
Formed in 2019, the Mikeleiz-Zucchi Duo presents reimaginations of traditional, classical, and modern repertoire through the lens of their unique instrumentation. Formed of Canadian saxophonist David Zucchi and Spanish accordionist Iñigo Mikeleiz-Berrade, this unusual combination of instruments challenges the perceptions of what each instrument can do and demonstrates their versatility. Graduates of the Royal College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music, the Duo was formed in the spirit of mutual curiosity and open-mindedness, and regularly includes contemporary works and improvisation as a part of programmes.
After their debut concert at the Vale de Cambra Classical Music Festival (Portugal) in 2019, the Duo has performed across the UK, including as a part of the Purley Classics series and the Daylight Music series at Union Chapel. Individually, Inigo and David have distinguished themselves as award-winning interpreters of classical, improvised, contemporary, and experimental music, and have performed at some of London’s most prestigious venues, including Wigmore Hall, the Elgar Room (Royal Albert Hall), St. James’ Piccadilly, the Purcell Room, and St. John’s Smith Square, and have been featured by Nonclassical, the Park Lane Group, and the Canadian High Commission in London
These recitals are given by a range of musicians from across London and further afield; the aim is to help support musicians at this time of crisis for the arts by providing a rehearsal/performance space, as well as a video recording of the concert (taken using brand new streaming equipment) which the artist can use for their own purposes.
There is no charge to attend and no need to book a seat. Drinks will be served in the garden - weather permitting - from 5:30pm. The concerts will also be streamed on Youtube for those unable to attend in person.
Music is really important to St Margaret’s, and they are keen to host concerts and recitals. If you’re interested in giving a recital at St Margaret’s, or if you would like to join its Music Mailing List, contact Nick Miller, Director of Music, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
