Quartier Latin

Paquito D'Rivera (Saxophones; Clarinet); Chano Domínguez (Piano);

Chorus and Orchestra of Teatro Real;

With the magnificent sets of the Quartier Latin in Giancarlo del Monaco’s La Bohème as a backdrop, the Teatro Real presents an invigorating Latin jazz cross-pollination, featuring some of the world’s greatest jazz fusionists: the veteran Cuban saxophonist Paquito D’Rivera and the creator of the ‘New Flamenco Sound’, Spanish pianist Chano Domínguez. This vibrant tête à tête of two of Latin jazz’s most talented musicians offers some of the best Latin jazz of our times. Recorded live in High Definition video and true surround sound, this concert fires up the screen with virtuosic and electrifying performances of some truly multi-dimensional jazz, coloured with salsa, flamenco, tango, bolero, African and other Latin music elements.

Reviews

"To say there was chemistry between them is not enough to explain what we experienced this evening...thank God the concert has been recorded..." (El Pais)

"Mr. D’Rivera, a gifted saxophonist and clarinettist has become the man to call if you want a concert-hall presentation of Pan-Latin music." (New York Times)
