Immediately after performing live with the Cuban Malpaso Dance Company for the opening of the summer festival, piano virtuoso Arturo O'Farrill will make his Elbphilharmonie debut.

 With a total of six Grammies, pianist Arturo O'Farrill is one of the most influential innovators of Latin jazz. As the son of the Cuban jazz pioneer Chico O'Farrill, Arturo on the one hand succeeds in sensitively crossing over different times and styles. Without nostalgia, he takes up the great pioneers of jazz influenced by Latin American rhythms, such as Mario Bauza and Tito Puente, whose pieces are also part of his octet repertoire. On the other hand, O'Farrill also stands for the presence of mind and the future of Latin jazz, whose polyrhythmic complexity gets a euphoric lightness in his hands - far from any salsa clichés, but also from self-referential jazz abstractions. O'Farrill's notes radiate life. How many impulses for movement are in Arturo O'Farrill's play can be experienced in the days prior to the Elbphilharmonie concert: the Malpaso Dance Company, currently the most exciting contemporary dance company from Cuba, will open up this year’s summer festival and give it’s Europan debut from August 8-11 at Kampnagel - accompanied live by Arturo O'Farrill.

This concert is one of four co-operation concerts with the Elbphilharmonie Sommer program. For these four concerts there will be two pre-sales through Kampnagel's webshop: end of April and after the release of the entire summer festival program in mid-June. The exact pre-sales data will be published in advance in the Kampnagel Newsletter (registration for the English version HERE).

The first 100 buyers of tickets for the Malpaso Dance Company get an exclusive pre-sale for tickets of the concert of  Arturo O'Farrill in the Elbphilharmonie and  will get informed.
