Axel Krogness - Subterranean Lake
Sunday 12 November, 6 pm
Welcome to a classical guitar recital!
Barons Court Theatre is delighted to welcome back Axel Krogness and his beautiful classical guitar music! To give you a proper send-off into the holidays, Axel will present one of the first performances of his new work Subterranean Lake. It's a large piece written for the guitar in two movements which lasts for approximately one hour. The work is a musical diary written over a few years exploring life's contradiction between its fortunes and tragedies.
