Renowned Violinist Alexandre Da Costa And Pianist Jean-Philippe Sylvestre Present Music From Around The World

Canadian violinist, Alexandre Da Costa is currently one of the top and most sought-after violinists in the world: recipient of a JUNO award, the Virginia-Parker Prize (one of Canada’s highest cultural distinctions), the Sylva Gelber Foundation Award from the Canada Council for the Arts, and first prize in the International Violin Competition Pablo Sarasate. Playing a Stradivarius from 1701 he has just released two new albums, including his new project ‘Stradivarius BaROCK’.

He’s appeared as guest soloist in more than 2000 concerts across 30 countries in four continents, in the world’s most prestigious venues, with the most renowned orchestras and conductors – most recently the Royal Seville Symphony Orchestra (Spain), Bogotá Philharmonic Orchestra (Colmbia) and the Colorado Springs Philharmonic Orchestra (USA). Now Artistic Director and Chief Conductor for the Orchestre Symphonique de Longueuil (OSDL), in Montréal, and Artistic Director of the Festival International Hautes-Laurentides (Québec), on this tour he performs with fellow Quebecois, pianist Jean-Philippe Sylvestre.

Gypsy Swing Artis Lollo Meier Carries On The Music of Django Reinhardt

Raised on Gypsy Swing from an early age, Lollo Meier is a master guitarist, composer, bandleader and arranger; Lollo comes from an elite family of Gypsy musicians and is cousin to two of the greatest guitarists of the genre; Fapy Lafertin and Stochelo Rosenberg. His goal: to carry on the music of Django Reinhardt, with a style and technique that’s traditional, melodious, lyrical, sensitive and joyful. His mellifluous compositions have a refreshing authentic Django flavour and are played with extraordinary talent, unique style and amazing suppleness that clearly reflects that he makes music he loves. His Quartet is sought after around the globe and is famous for playing the lesser-known Reinhardt tunes and his own compositions. A man of style, grace and humour, Lollo’s pure melodious playing touches his audiences and makes Django’s music as fresh today as it was 80 years ago.

“It felt like the legendary Django Reinhardt was performing again” Zutphen Paper

“We lit a candle and were given grace, so much beauty, so much harmony and so much variation and so much of Lollo” Pedro Ramacher, Dutchnews.nl
