PROGRAM NOTE

A journey through the work and living spaces of pianist and composer Ernesto Lecuona, considered the most universal of Cubans. Three outstanding Latin jazz piano players will guide us in this odyssey: Chucho Valdes in Lecuona’s native Havana fuses jazz with Afro-Cuban rhythms, Michel Camilo in New York, creates elegant soundscapes, and in Seville, Gonzalo Rubalcaba fuses Latin jazz with flamenco.
