Giacomo Susani, classical guitar

Talented Italian guitarist and composer, Giacomo Susani, has won the top awards at many of Europe's most highly regarded music competitions including the first prize at the 2016 London International Guitar Competition. Upon his entrance to the Royal College of Music he was awarded the prestigious Julian Bream Trust Scholarship after an audition in front of the great Julian Bream himself.

Besides performing, Giacomo works in the field of composition. He recently wrote and premiered in London Songs of Elegance and Wisdom for soprano and guitar, Of Dark Tales for two guitars and a quintet for guitar and strings. He is also the Artistic Director of Momùs-More Music, a Musical Association based in Italy which promotes and organises classical music concerts. Among future engagements are solo and chamber music recitals in the UK, Italy, Spain and Brazil as well as the recording of a new CD focused on the solo guitar music.

At this innovative event Giacomo will be playing works by Piazzola, Granados, Mancini and William Walton, as well as a dramatic piece written especially for him by the Polish composer Marek Pasieczny which was inspired by 4 works in the Tate Gallery. Perfect music for a balmy summer evening.

The event costs £10 and we are offering free entry for under 18's. Included in the price is a convivial gathering for drinks after. You can book using any of the options shown our booking page. E-tickets are also available via Eventbrite www.eventbrite.co.uk. Advance booking would be appreciated so that we have an idea of how many to cater for, but you will still be welcome to turn up and pay cash on the door. Please note the earlier start time of 7.30pm
