The magical lyricism and warm harmonies of Catalonian piano composer
Federico Mompou are given new life in the setting of this “chamber band”
comprised of winds, brass and strings.

Mompou’s music is a missing link in the marriage of 20th century classical
music and jazz, having been a marked influence on Bill Evans and Miles
Davis.

Focusing on the 28 short vignettes that make up the masterpiece Musica
Callada, the ensemble will begin to explore brand new orchestrations of
this unheralded artist in a fun and casual workshop performance meant to
provide a friendly backdrop or engaging distraction to your Saturday
brunch.
