Traveling from Brazil and Argentina to Mexico and the United States, cellist Lars Hoefs and pianist Rose Chen present a smoldering program of pan-American delights. Samba rhythms reinvigorate Bach, Stravinsky joins a mariachi band, and once-illicit tango takes the stage. Music by Villa-Lobos, Ginastera, Piazzolla, Chavez, Revueltas, and Barber draw expression and life’s essence from the new world, uniting North and South Americans in classical music’s wild Western hemisphere…
The event also features the world premieres of two culturally unique pieces – “Suite Adeline” by Canadian producer/techno pioneer Bruce Haack and “Fragmentos breves de todo un poco” by Cuban cellist/composer Yaniel Matos.
