Her parents named her "Star" ... and with a grandfather, uncles and a father all famous musicians, how could she be anything but? The star in question is Estrella Morente, who has since exceeded every prediction of success to become one of the greatest flamenco vocalists alive today. Celebrated for her fresh approach to flamenco and popular Spanish songs, Morente has a supple and evocative voice, summoning heart-broken regret and boundless joy with equal ease (and often within the same song). So stirring is her voice, that director Pedro Almodóvar included it on the soundtrack to his Oscar-nominated film, Volver. Experience her intense rhythms and moody melodies -- and the accompaniment of a dazzling flamenco guitarist -- when Morente performs live at Cal Performances' Zellerbach Hall. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "(Dausgaard is) a conductor of rare conviction and insight." -<em>Daily Telegraph</em> (London)
Founded in 1995, the acclaimed Swedish Chamber Orchestra presents new perspectives, not only for traditional chamber ensemble repertoire but also for music that is usually perceived as belonging to the realm of the full-size symphony orchestra. The gifted ensemble of 38 musicians is led by Music Director Thomas Dausgaard ("a conductor of rare conviction and insight," says London's Daily Telegraph). The Berkeley concert also features Polish-Hungarian pianist Piotr Anderszewski, who has been widely praised for the intensity and originality of his interpretations after first coming to public attention at the 1990 Leeds Piano Competition. The program will include works by Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann, and a Swedish composer to be announced.
