The trio Classico Latino was formed in 1999 by two rising stars of the British classical music scene, cellist Graham Walker and violinist Lizzie Ball, and Colombian pianist Iván Guevara. They joined forces to develop their unique interpretations of Latin American rhythms using classical techniques. These groundbreaking arrangements, along with compositions of their own, are performed with virtuosity and versatility, creating music with an extraordinary appeal to people from all cultural backgrounds.
