Pictures and infos about our programmes
Our current programmes are – unless stated otherwise – Flying Carpet, Wonder World Music, TANGO, Canzone della Strada, Quadro Nuevo, Mocca Flor, End of the Rainbow and Grand Voyage.
Quadro Nuevo performs in the following line-up:
Mulo Francel (Saxophone, Clarinet, Mandolin), Andreas Hinterseher (Accordion, Vibrandoneon, Bandoneon), D.D. Lowka (Double Bass, Percussion) und Evelyn Huber (Harp, Salterio).
For the programmes Tango, Ragazzo Music and in various other concerts when announced, Chris Gall joins us on piano instead of Evelyn Huber (Harp).
During their 20 years of touring, Quadro Nuevo has been on a quest to find the very soul of Tango. The intrepid Virtuosi have travelled to countless places, boldly sounded out more adventurous ways of playing and have been rewarded twice with the ECHO for their efforts.
Programme „Flying Carpet“
An intoxicating flight through the Occident and Orient.
The music of the multi-ECHO-winning ensemble creates a momentum that audiences cannot resist: the magic carpet takes flight.
Programme „Flying Carpet: Quadro Nuevo meets Cairo Steps“
Quadro Nuevo meets Cairo Steps
An exotic, inspiring and sweeping sound experience. Music as a magic carpet, crossing all boundaries of time, politics and religion.
Programme ‚‚Wonder World Music‘‘ (Quadro Nuevo as Quartett with Chris Gall on piano)
From Tango and extravagant Flying Carpet melodies, Quadro Nuevo now brings bold instrumental interpretations of German folk songs to the stage:
daring - wordless - moving.
Programme „Canzone della Strada‘‘
In its programme Canzone della Strada, Quadro Nuevo explores old Italian tango and lyrical canciones.
Music of an Italy almost lost in time, once so enchantingly presented by long forgotten singers of the likes of Carlo Buti, Nilla Pizzi and Claudio Villa.
Programme ‚‚Quadro Nuevo - End of the Rainbow‘‘
How do you reach the end of the rainbow?
A realist would say: not at all
A philosopher would say: through your imagination
A priest would say: by faith
A crook would say: give me some money and I’ll show you
A mother would say: in your dreams
A child would say: that’s easy!
A fool would say: beyond the next hill, that’s where it must be, I can see it
A musician would say: just listen.
Programme ‚‚Quadro Nuevo & Orchester - End of the Rainbow‘‘
Passionate Tangos, beguiling arabesques, melodies from old Europe. Presented in an orchestral setting yet intensely intimate.
Programme „Grand Voyage‘‘
Songs of a Grand Voyage
Each one of Quadro Nuevo’s songs transports us to a different part of the world and carries within it the pure atmosphere of that particular place:
a wild ride across the harsh Crimean peninsula, London’s old world charm, the lightness of the Mediterranean, a Tango from New York, crazy days in Istanbul, a night of revelry in Transylvania, secret gardens in Malaysia, warm rain in Paris.
Ensemble „Quadro Nuevo‘‘
Quadro Nuevo is the European answer to the Argentine tango
Arabesques, Balkan swing, ballads, daredevil improvisations, the melodies of old Europe and the lightness of the Mediterranean merge into fabulous songs full of joyous colour.
