LATIN–JAZZ SINFÓNICA! & Ramón Valle
Elegant, virtuoso, gripping, passionate.
The 65 musicians of “LATIN-JAZZ SINFÓNICA!” under the management of Julia Diederich, Christoph König and Andreas Schulz, fascinate with a completely new music composed of classical music, jazz and Latin and is far more than just the sum of its individual parts. It is the association of three different music styles that complement each other wonderfully, inspire each other and it is the result of high-caliber classical musicians, impressive jazz virtuosos and energetic percussionists.
The combination of Latin Jazz Sinfónica! with the Cuban pianist Ramón Valle could hardly be more suitable and exciting. Together, they perform a concert on the stage that presents their own compositions in orchestra surround sound. The classical musicians of the NEW PHILHARMONIKER BERLIN, jazz musicians and soloists of Latin Jazz Sinfónica! and the trio around Ramon Valle present an exciting mix of Cuban and world music jazz. The music is precisely tailored for entire orchestra and creates a moving sound experience that inspires and generates emotions.
Thanks to its energetic joy of playing in concert halls, the sleek elegance in the interplay of the full orchestra generates a dense "wall of sound” that thrills both classical music and jazz fans.
