    Latin Strings


  • January 2017

    Program 2017 - 10 years paul taylor orCHestra!


    The concert project «Latin Strings», with EOS Guitar Quartet, the world renowned ensemble, is a marvelous collaboration for paul taylor orCHestra in 2017!


    A scintillating program awaits:

    orCHestra will flesh out the Latin soul in Italian Baroque nobility of Alessandro Scarlatti, contrast this with passionate "7 Canciones" from Manuel de Falla performed by Laida Alberdi, solo violinist, as well as with Falla‘s fiery dances in „El amor brujo“, in a special quartet arrangement by EOS.

    Greatly anticipated is a new work : „Retrato de H.S. a fuego lento“, commissioned by paul taylor orCHestra with EOS Quartet from the remarkable composer-improvisor, Jacques Demierre of Geneva. Our program then culminates in the concerto-hommage „Gismontiana“, for four guitars and string orCHestra, by legendary Cuban guitarist composer, Leo Brouwer.


    June 2017 also awaits the exciting return to Brugg and Zürich of two jubilee performances of «Alphorn & Nordic Winds», with our in every sense, breathtaking soloists, Eliana Burki, Alphorn, and Karoliina Kantelinen, vocals. It will be a pleasure to introduce as special guest, multipercussionist David Panzl, of Vienna. The concurrent release of the LP audiofile version of «Alphorn & Nordic Winds: Ethnic» on Solo Musica, marks our celebration:

    - 5 years «Alphorn & Nordic Winds»

    - 10 years paul taylor orCHestra

    - 100 years of Finnish independance
