About the Event
Outside the winter air, inside the scent of candles. Baked apples stewing in the oven. Sounds of joyful expectation. Memories of your own childhood. Quadro Nuevo plays Christmas songs: unfamiliar and yet familiar. Well‐known and rarely heard pieces are charmingly interpreted. Unique, filigree, soulful. New and yet familiar. Atmospheric, virtuosic and yet simple.
The world music ensemble Quadro Nuevo, which has released three Christmas albums in its long band history since 1996, dedicates its new program 'December' to the special mood at the end of the year. Winter is approaching, the days are getting noticeably shorter. Advent candles and Christmas scents convey a sense of security, stand for the joyful expectation of the feast of love. It is an intense and spiritual force that creates space on dark December evenings for new encounters with our dreams and hopes, with memories of childhood days long gone. Man's constant search for security and love, the longing for peace — Quadro Nuevo reflects all of this and offers an atmospheric pre‐Christmas program with shimmering jazz harmonies, meditative or funky rhythms to Klezmer‐inspired improvisations that could hardly be more present.
