from 9:00 o’clock p.m.

Together with the two solo tuba players Patricio Cosentino (Argentina) and Wolfgang Rabensteiner (South Tyrol) the Sonoton Gherdëina Orchestra, conducted by Matthäus Crepaz, offers a truly fiery night with Latin American music.
The music of Latin America is well-known for its passionate melodies and hot rhythms. Tango, salsa, samba and rumba are music terms that represent “good mood music” all over the world.
This year, the Sonoton Gherdëina Orchestra has again come up with something very special: the program “Con Fuego!” gives the audience an insight into the Latin American “classical” music with works by Arturo Marquez, Alberto Ginastera, Astor Piazzolla, and others.
Moreover two premières will be performed: the concerto for two tubas by the Argentinean composer Noelia Escalzo and the tango “La Pasion” by Matthäus Crepaz.
The tuba rarely serves as a solo instrument; however, right now it is experiencing a world-wide “boom”. The Sonoton Gherdëina Orchestra would like to be a pioneer in this respect and will offer its audience an extraordinary and fiery program at the end of July 2016.
