The concert features a new composition for piano, cello, laouto, violin, voice and percussion, co-commissioned by EFG London Jazz Festival, Detroit Jazz Festival, Jazztopad (Wroclaw) and the Telus Center (Toronto).
With this work, Danilo Pérez observes how change and uncertainty in the social landscape can cause division. He believes music can provide an uplifting message and speaks of ‘recovering the function of the artist to redirect humanity in a positive direction.’
Pérez has been one of the pillars of Wayne Shorter's great quartet since 2000, following a dazzling career including collaborations with Jon Hendricks, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Haden, Michael Brecker, Tito Puente and Wynton Marsalis, eight albums and several Grammy nominations.
Under-14s should be accompanied by an adult.
