Daniel Ropota (Romania) – piano with Francisco Javier Escrihuela Gandia (Spain) – ‘cello

Thanks again to Tyler and Oliver who seemed to enjoy their time with us as much as we did.

Romanian pianist Daniel Ropota has been here before, but this time he brings a Spanish ‘cellist Francisco Javier Escrihuela Gandia. They have only two recitals at The ARC and St. James’s and St. Basil’s on Tuesday 29th May and Saturday 2nd June, respectively.

Reminder of the changes: 
As mentioned in the last update, there are changes at some venues. Ropota & Gandia will not be playing at Belmont on 31st May. and because of prior commitments, Giulio Tampalini will not be playing at Y Studio or Christ Church on 22nd June, or J’s & B’s on 23rd.

HOWEVER we have been able to fit in an extra recital for Giulio at Christ Church, on Wednesday June 27th at 7.30 pm.
