7.30pm Concert

This concert and album launch from Anna Astesano (Harp) and Valentina Ciardelli (Double Bass) explores the deep connections between the influences of Japanese art on Western culture and vice versa.

Taking the Japanese composer Miyagi (1900) as a starting point, the album travels around the worlds of Ravel, Stravinsky and Puccini to land on contemporary compositions, notably Mr Hirano’s Elegy, dedicated and composed for the duo.
