A dazzlingly diverse recital travels across four continents and three hundred years with the virtuosity and imaginative flair that are hallmarks of Emmanuel Pahud’s playing. His travelling companion is the guitarist and composer Christian Rivet, presenting both arrangements and original works that tap into ancient cultures of expression through sound and music in order to, as Pahud remarks, ‘liberate ourselves from the everyday’.
