Newsletter; April 2015

Dear Amigos,
HAPPY EASTER !

In the afterglow of the two outstanding music evenings last month with Alissa Firsova and Tim Hugh, here I am to tempt you to the next raisins in our monthly reunions at Os Agostos:

On Tuesday, April 14th, and Thursday, April 16th, 2015 we shall have the great pleasure of welcoming Maestro Paul Crossley who has chosen a magnificent programme of music at which he is master sans pareil.  We are so lucky to have this doyen of the piano, who became, during his long career, one of the world’s foremost interpreters of French piano music, returning to us. I am anxious to show him our new “home” and, of course, the enthusiastic Amigo family assembled in it.
Stop Press:
Let me point out URGENTLY that we are adapting our timing to summer time:  PLEASE NOTE: as of April 14th we shall begin 30 minutes later!
Doors at Os Agostos will open at 18:30, drinks and canapees at 18:45.
Recitals will begin at 19:30
