Argentinean composer Claudia Montero talks about her music and the development of her career as a composer ahead of the UK premiere performance of her piece Luces y Sombras later that day in a concert with guitarist Eleanor Kelly, Musica Argentina.
Claudia Montero has emerged as one of the most outstanding and acclaimed composers in Latin America today. Her music has been premiered and performed worldwide. It is a music strongly rooted in South American traditional music. Irish conductor, David Brophy has praised her work noting that "apart from the joy it expresses there is also a sort of melancholy behind the music ....not sadness, just an elegiac sense or yearning for older times... that is rooted in Claudia’s traditions from that part of the world"
