The Dominic Seligman Agency presents pianist Clara Rodríguez in a concert to celebrate the birthday of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (born in Salzburg on 27 January 1756). In addition to works by Mozart, Clara will play Chopin's Ballade No.1 in G minor and pieces by female Venezuelan composers such as Teresa Carreño and Isabel Pachano de Mauri, ending the evening with the Zumba que zumba by Federico Ruiz which has been especially written for Clara.
This performance forms part of a series of concerts at the atmospheric and intimate 1901 Arts Club situated on London’s South Bank.

Clara Rodríguez started her concert career by performing Mozart piano concerti with the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra. She then went on to win the Royal College of Music Mozart Prize. Mozart’s works have often been featured in her concerts, including those at the Wigmore Hall, and those under the baton of Michael Collins with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. Clara is also a specialist performer of Latin American music.
“Her Mozart playing was a demonstration of virtuosity and brilliance within a strict gallant style and her version of Chopin was animated by a genuine dramatic sense as well as being instinctive and spectacular.“
