Alexis Cuadrado: A Lorca Soundscape at 92YTribeca

Date: 
Friday, March 1, 2013 - 6:00pm

As soon as composer Cuadrado of Barcelona earned his Master's in Jazz Performance at Queens College and settled in Brooklyn, the stock market plummeted. Cuadrado remembered that 80 years earlier, in 1929, poet Federico García Lorca of Granada was visiting New York when the stock market crashed. Lorca wrote verse about it, collected in Poeta en Nueva York (A Poet in New York). Now, Cuadrado has set Lorca's poetry to music, performed by Claudia Acuña, voice; Miguel Zenón, saxophone; Dan Tepfer, piano; the composer on bass; Mark Ferber, drums.
