Two old friends, singer and recent Latin Grammy Nominee Miriam Ramos and pianist Ulises Hernandezâ€”both virtuosos in their own rightâ€”will share an evening of unforgettable Cuban classics ranging from Hernandezâ€™s classical Latin works to Ramosâ€™ interpretations of cherished Cuban popular ballads accompanied by awarded pianist Rolando Luna. Bound by their long-standing mutual respect, in two extraordinary evenings these two artists will navigate the classical masterpieces of Cervantes and Lecuona and a soulful variety of popular Cuban musical genres such as Filin and Bolero. These exciting side-by-side concerts offer a sumptuous repertoire of classical favorites together with contemporary exploration, passionate expression, and musical innovation. Ulises Hernandez represents a remarkable tradition of Cuban classical piano that is uniquely Latin, and unrivaled in its mastery; Miriam Ramos will be playing songs from her latest cd, â€œLa CanciÃ³n Cubanaâ€, which features a repertory of the most traditional songs from IXX Century to contemporary compositions by todayâ€™s Cuban songwriters.
