Purpose of this CD
El canto del cisne negro emerged as a concept for a concert, which took place in June 2017 in Vienna. With your support it might turn soon into a CD production. Why this program? On the one hand we had the need of spreading the classical Latin American music, especially the least known genre of it, the chamber music. On the other hand the cello, the most versatile string instrument that goes from an accompanying role to a soloist one, is still a quite unknowned instrument in the Latin American culture, where mainly the voice, piano, guitar and violin are more popular. We also wanted to show the high quality of these compositions to the mainstream public. This project will be recorded at the end of 2019 and will be released next year. We thank you already for your support!
