Harlem Quartet with Aldo López-Gavilán

March 1  Tuesday at 7:30 pm

Los Hermanos reunited, finally

Long-separated Afro-Cuban virtuoso brothers, together again. Schumann + Cuban jazz.

Finally reunited: Afro-Cuban virtuoso brothers on opposite sides of a geopolitical chasm a half-century wide. Now they take the stage with the marvelous Harlem Quartet (co-founded by one brother) in an enthralling performance featuring the Afro-Cuban / Jazz-flavored works by the other brother — plus a masterpiece by Robert Schumann.

ABOUT HARLEM QUARTET
AND
ALDO LÓPEZ-GAVILÁN

Harlem Quartet’s performances with Cuban pianist/composer Aldo López-Gavilán offer a joyously energetic concert experience. The collaboration reunites López-Gavilán with his older brother, violinist Ilmar Gavilán, who left Cuba at age 14 and went on to co-found Harlem Quartet. López-Gavilán and the quartet showcase scintillating chemistry in a broad variety of repertoire. Programs include American jazz standards, bossa nova classics, and, of course, several original compositions from López-Gavilán that take audiences on a journey through Cuba’s myriad musical traditions. The new documentary Los Hermanos / The Brothers tells the story of Aldo and Ilmar, tracking their shared childhood, their momentous first performances together, and their parallel lives as musicians
