At age 15, Ifetayo Ali became the Sphinx Competition Junior Division First-Place Laureate—and she has the remarkable musicianship and magnetic stage presence to back it up. She appeared on the Boston-based NPR program From the Top this season, and now makes a full recital debut with an exciting program.
The great Argentine composer Ginastera wrote his series of Pampeanas to conjure the sound and spirit of gauchos' life in the Argentine pampas. His music is restless, protean, and colorful.
