The Alonso Brothers at Wave Hill in New York

Describing the artistry of the duo, The New York Times declared: “It is never about showing off what they can do technically, but rather about bringing the listener into the meaning of the music. They are real virtuosos of their instrument not only because of their rock solid performances, but because of their considerable intelligence, sensitivity, intense feeling and contagious joy.” In a dance themed program of four-hand piano works, Orlando and Orlay will offer works by Brahms, Debussy, Stravinsky, Piazzolla, Cervantes and more. For additional information, please call 718.549.3200 x251. See more details…

Bohemian Trio at Spoleto Festival, May 28-31

Bohemian Trio

Bohemian Trio

Spoleto Festival (Charleston)
May 28 – 31
Tickets: https://spoletousa.org/events/bohemian-trio/

Drawn to the idea that a blend of traditions would speak to the true voice of the Americas, Yosvany Terry (saxophone and chékere), Orlando Alonso (piano), and Yves Dharamraj (cello) pooled their cultural and musical backgrounds to form the Bohemian Trio in 2013. Together, they forge a new identity—a polyphony of cultures—that transcends old-world boundaries. Bohemian Trio intertwines earthy, Afro-Cuban rhythms with sweeping classical melodies, jazz improvisation, and the celebration of Latin dance to transport its audiences to an inspired and fantastical place, though one longing for a bygone era at odds with the modern world. Grounded in both distinct formal traditions and abstract ideas, each member exhibits his own brand of technical prowess and invention, creating an extension of the familiar. Their musical narratives—deftly woven into original and commissioned works—simultaneously evoke joy, nostalgia, and passion.
