The acclaimed Harlem Quartet joins Cuban pianist and composer Aldo López-Gavilán for an electrifying evening of music that The Washington Post hails as “lively and engrossing.” López-Gavilán and the quartet offer a joyously energetic concert experience, showcasing scintillating onstage chemistry in a rich variety of repertoire that ranges from jazz and Afro-Cuban to contemporary and classical music. A rare treat for all music lovers, the program begins with Robert Schumann’s beloved and exuberant Piano Quintet in E-flat Major, followed by an exhilarating lineup of works by López-Gavilán that takes audiences on a journey through Cuba’s myriad musical traditions.
