Summer 22 News & Mozart y Mambo -Cuban Dances
What a wonderful summer it has been, I hope for you too! After our Berlin Philharmonic Waldbühne concert it was straight into the Studio with the brand new brass ensemble Philharmonic Brass to record our very first album. Then is was off to Ingolstadt to present some concerts for the Audi Sommerkonzerte and as soon as that was over I flew to Japan – finally back in Japan again after 3 years!! It really felt like coming home.
First stop was Tokyo for a fun event with the Alexander Horn Owners Club at Yamaha on the Ginza then 10 days teaching and playing in Sapporo at one of my favourite festivals of all, the Pacific Music Festival. I simply love this festival!
After hugging my PMF horns goodbye, it was off to Los Angeles to be part of the teaching faculty for Gustavo Dudamel‘s “Encuentros” project where 109 young musicians from all over Latin America came together in LA for two weeks of intensive rehearsals and teaching to prepare for a fantastic concert at the Hollywood Bowl. It was an unforgettable experience for us all and I am still missing my Encuentros horns- together we represented Venezuela, Uruguay, Mexico, Panama, USA and UK and Encuentros has connected us all for life. Los extraño!
Then a few days to recover in Tuscany from literally flying once around the world and now…. We are preparing for the release of the second part of the Mozart y Mambo project: our new album called “Mozart y Mambo – Cuban Dances”. I have so much to tell you about this, so watch this space but meanwhile check out the first single from the album – a movement from the newly composed, first ever Cuban horn concerto called the Sarahchá. This will hopefully get you in the mood for the rest of the album, coming on September 2nd. So excited to share it with you! More soon…. Sarah
