Dino Saluzzi, Anja Lechner & Felix 'Cuchara' Saluzzi On Tour

Dino Saluzzi: bandoneon
Anja Lechner: violoncello
Felix ‘Cuchara’ Saluzzi: tenor saxophone, clarinet

“Their capacity to evoke images of everything from dark mountainscapes to village dances is seductive, and variations ebb and flow beneath the mournful sweeps of bandoneon chords and fragile upper cello sounds that dive dramatically into low reverberations. ... The instruments gracefully chase each other and then weave contrapuntal passages where improvised and composed parts are almost impossible to separate.” (John Fordham, The Guardian)

Dino Saluzzi, Anja Lechner and Felix 'Cuchara' Saluzzi are setting out on a European tour, with concerts in Germany, Holland, Switzerland, Poland, Sweden, Ireland and Norway, playing music from their “Navidad de los Andes” album and other sources. The trio will also perform with Jules Buckley and the NorrlandsOperans Symfoniorkester in Umeå (24th October), where they will present Saluzzi’s symphonic work “El Encuentro”.

In Bern (16th October) Dino Saluzzi gives a duo concert with long-time musical partner Anja Lechner. Their shared musical language, drawing on South American heritage and the European classical tradition, has been documented on “Ojos Negros” and more recently on Norbert Wiedmer and Enrique Ros film about the two artists, selected in the quarterly shortlists of the Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik earlier this year.

After the tour’s final concert in Oslo, Dino Saluzzi heads to Rainbow Studio (where he last recorded for Giya Kancheli’s CD “Themes from the Songbook”). There, he and Manfred Eicher will supervise a recording of his compositions for piano, with young Argentinean pianist Horacio Lavandera.
