A New World - Blue Rose Duo Plays Music from the Americas
+ two world premieres

Rose Chen, piano / Lars Hoefs, cello

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¡K

Join us for 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.
