Roberto Fonseca - Cuba 2.0

Ende der weiteren Informationen
Porträt

On the musical map, little Cuba is above all one thing: the home of the Buena Vista Social Club. To reduce a pianist like Roberto Fonseca to that would be fatal. But it is true: as the successor to the legendary Rubén Gonzáles, he has earned his spurs as pianist of the »Club« with over 400 concerts worldwide. Since then, Fonseca has worked for many stars of Cuban music such as Omara Portuondo or Ibrahim Ferrer as an arranger, producer and musician. Meanwhile, as a jazz pianist, Fonseca has become a brand of the Cuban music scene. He embodies Cuba on a new musical level, looking for new sounds and connections to other musical styles. And who better to find it than Fonseca, who has learned the »Son Cubano« from the greats and now takes the next step. Fonseca is cosmopolitan, technically precise and has a sure sense for melodies and rhythm.

Family concert - Peter and the Wolf

Ende der weiteren Informationen
Kinder im hr-Sendesaal

When the wolf appears at the edge of the forest, it is over with rural carefreeness. The violin melodies give way to the horns, which enter the scene with hair-raising chords - until Peter catches the wolf to the good end with cunning and only from the belly quacks the swallowed duck as an oboe. The symphonic tale »Peter and the Wolf« is a classic with which generations of children have become acquainted with the instruments of the orchestra. Katharina Thomsen has shaken up Sergei Prokofiev's music. In their big-band version, saxophones, trombone, double bass and other jazz instruments depict the characters and animals, and the Frankfurt Radio Big Band musicians will bring them to life. No wonder that the also story is a bit different then in the original.
