Join Blas & Chew for a free evening of jazz, tango and classical at St Leonard's at the Hythe

The perfect and profound cello of the English David Chew, and the irreverent tenor saxophone of the Argentinean Blas Rivera.

They both live in Brazil and have excited audiences throughout the world with a unique delicate and triumphant music.

Conversing, silencing, improvising and crying they involve us with their music.

Compositions by Astor Piazzolla ,Heitor Villa- Lobos, Carlos Gardel, Tom Jobim and Blas Rivera himself.

David Chew and Blas Rivera already have made 4 albums together, I hope you hear me (a tribute to Astor Piazzolla), Two Faces (a tribute to David Chew), Between strings, and Checkmate.

The music has a doubly charming and sad beauty, through what is heard and what is intricately hidden. Therefore these songs that make up this latest project of Blas Rivera and David Chew, get under the skin, to the heart and live forever in the mind.” Chema García Martínez (“El Pais, España)

The concert begins at 5pm and admission is free. Their latest album will be available to purchase on the night.
