Cuban piano prodigy Aldo López-Gavilán joins the Harlem Quartet in this dynamic cross-cultural collaboration. The program will consist of Latin jazz and classical repertoire, as well as original compositions by Mr. López-Gavilán.

Los Hermanos/The Brothers
Separated by geopolitics, united by music, two Cuban Brothers navigate an uncertain time.
Time: 6:00-6:40 pm

Preceding the concert ECA is proud to present a special screening of the new documentary short Los Hermanos/The Brothers, followed by a Q&A with Ilmar and Aldo López-Gavilán. Born in Havana, these virtuoso musicians are brothers—long separated by geopolitics. Ilmar left for Moscow at fourteen, sent by the Ministry of Culture to study classical violin with a Soviet master after he outgrew his Cuban teachers. He never lived in Cuba again, ultimately landing as a hard working musician in the U.S. Younger brother Aldo grew up mentored by Cuba’s impressive jazz and classical pianists, his extraordinary talent easily achieving renown on the island but stymied from attaining wider fame by the U.S. embargo. He too left Cuba—for the London Conservatory—but returned to his home country to make a life. After 30 years, a thaw in U.S.-Cuba relations offers the brothers the opportunity of a U.S. concert tour together. But just as they hit their stride, Fidel Castro dies and Donald Trump is elected, threatening the future of their dreams.

This program is free-of-charge and open to the public.
