Raquel recently launched Essencia Urbana, an album exploring the urbane cultures of Fado and Tango. The original compositions for viola and piano by Dr Cecile Elton are inspired by the poetry of the two distinct urban cultures. This lecture will focus on the process from initially reading an original composition to working with the composer to develop an interpretation and recording.
Raquel is an active and vibrant musician and educator. She has performed internationally as a chamber musician and recitalist throughout Portugal, UK, Germany, Switzerland, South Africa, United States, China and Australia.
