DecArt/Alvaro Cortes

DecArt, a talented ten-piece ensemble of young London-based musicians, rounded off Trinity Laban’s wonderful 2015 season of free lunchtime concerts at St Alfege in Greenwich with a programme which had at its core a dynamic, uncompromising, challenging but rather short new work by 28-year-old Spanish composer Alvaro Cortes. It was hugely enjoyable – but I think the decision to sandwich it between two magnificent pieces by Mozart meant that it was somewhat overpowered. Still, I’m looking forward to catching DecArt the next time they venture south of the river.
