Sarah Williams

Sarah has lived in Cranleigh, Surrey  since 1995 where she teaches and freelances with various orchestras and choral societies. She began her oboe studies with John Williams of the  Bournemouth  Symphony Orchestra and then moved to Trieste, Italy to study with Alessandro  Bonelli at the Tartini Conservatorio. For the past fifteen years she has played with the wind       quintet ‘New Harmonie’ who work extensively in theSouth/South East.  In 2007  New Harmonie gained charitable status, and its director, Dr Geoff Richardson has worked tirelessly to obtain funding to work with primary school children, children with special needs, and latterly people suffering with dementia.  She met David while teaching at Farlington School and they made the decision to become a duo specialising in Latin American music. This has been an incredibly rewarding experience and she has thoroughly enjoyed working with David and benefitting from his expertise in this field.






David Caswell

David enjoys a varied  career, teaching, performing and researching into the area  of Latin American guitar music. Early studies were with his father, a keen amateur guitarist and pianist, and later with Anthony Macmahon.  He entered the RCM in 1982 studying with Charles Ramirez and Patrick Bashford. He made his international debut in Buenos Aires in 1997 and has been a regular visitor to Latin America ever  since.  Visits to Venezuela and to Cuba introduced new and exciting repertoire, some of which will be heard in  tonight’s concert. It is a pleasure to present these duets with a musician of the calibre of Sarah Williams, the sounds of whose oboe and cor anglais are simply a delight . It is a pleasure too to share the concert with our very dear friend and colleague, the multi talented musician and poet Ricardo Curbelo and we hope that you will enjoy tonight’s presentation.

Ricardo Garcia-Curbelo


Latin American Harpist, Singer, Composer and Poet El Condor, from an early age has been an eminent representative artist of Latin America, nationally and internationally, on a wide variety of stages. He is considered today an ambassador of the Latin American poetry and music culture and one of the finest soloist composer-performers of the land.

Ricardo studied the harp in Colombia, his native country,

at the Music Academy of Villavicencio, with Luis Alberto Curvelo, his brother and Director of the institution. The two brothers founded The Music Academy of Puerto Carreño (Vichada). He studied music theory at the Music Academy Luis A. Calbo and voice production with legendary maestro Manuel Zapata Olivella, at the National University in Bogotá. Ricardo's development and commitment, from an early age as a performer, combined with the distinctive sound responses of his Modelo Corvado harps, make him today a solid, unique artist. His entire work is basically poetry; which exceeds to date five hundred compositions. From his works, pieces such as THE HOMO SAPIENS DREAM, bring Latin America’s music and poetry to a new dimension. This dramatic poetical-progressive interpretation of human evolution has been much acclaimed by audiences. In 2010, thanks to this piece, Ricardo was presented as the perfect act for the day at the London Natural History Museum, during the Exhibition Road Festival. In England his artistic career has expanded quite remarkably. He has widely performed solo concerts and with different accomplished performers from around the world. He is delighted to share this concert with David Caswell and Sarah Williams, both experienced accomplished musicians.

His programme will include pieces from his newly recorded album, Espíritu Llanero / A Londres.
