About This Program

Approximate length 2:00

The Sphinx Virtuosi is one of America’s most dynamic string ensembles, composed of the nation’s top Black and Latino classical string soloists who are all alumni of the prestigious Sphinx Competition for young American string players. Latin Voyages: Viajes Latinos takes audiences on a journey that honors our vastly diverse backgrounds through music. Featuring the tantalizing Argentine tango, the nocturnal imagery of Mexico, a grand tribute to the great Piazzolla and a final invitation to a Catalan dance, this program explores the great palette of the string medium through the prism of both revered and lesser known composers of Latin heritage.

Please note: The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra does not perform on this program.

Copresented with the Ordway and The Schubert Club.
