Award winning pianist Daniel Rojas and the charismatic Ensemble Apex string quartet create a heavenly alchemy of Tango, Salsa and more!
Australia’s tango piano specialist, and international second prize winner in the 2021 Piazzolla Music Competition, Daniel Rojas will perform with Ensemble Apex String Quartet – Sydney’s creative and charismatic collection of Conservatorium-trained young musicians including rising star Anna Da Silva Chen. Irresistible rhythms and a melting pot of melodies, Chilean-born Rojas reimagines some of Latin America’s best-loved tunes and tangos.
A heavenly alchemy of Mambo, Salsa and Andean folk music fused with classical sensibilities – supported by the high-energy Ensemble Apex String Quartet – it’s music you know but as you’ve never heard it before. With Piazzolla’s Libertango, Chucho Valdés’ Mambo Influenciado and surprising Peruvian melodies traced back to the 1600s, Rojas’ sensitive arrangements and soulful original work is guaranteed to lift your spirits, and leave you wanting more. Renowned as an award-winning composer specialising in the rich and vibrant Latin American aesthetic, Rojas is also one of the few composers who performs his own work, bringing real, inimitable warmth and verve to every performance. Book early as this will sell out.
Doors open at 6pm and the In-flight Bar and Diner will be open for a glass of wine and delicious snacks (please note: card only, no cash). Arrive early to ensure you have enough time to have your ticket scanned.
