We are thrilled to welcome back this incredible group of musicians.
Trace of Time is a journey of musical discovery and cultural connections, from spirituals to the evolution of the tango. Program showcases music by Adolphus Hailstork, Astor Piazzolla and Latin Grammy-winning composer and bandoneon performer Hector Del Curto. Featuring Texas’ premiere tango duo Hugo Patyn and Celina Rotundo.
Houston-based APOLLO CHAMBER PLAYERS “performs with rhythmic flair and virtuosity” (The Strad) and “recasts music for a diverse and multi-ethnic generation” (Strings Magazine). The ensemble’s globally-inspired programming and multicultural new music commissions have garnered international acclaim, including sold-out performances at Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, and in Havana, Cuba as well as a Chamber Music America Residency Partnership award and regular features on American Public Media’s Performance Today.
Released on the Grammy-winning Azica Records label, Apollo’s With Malice Toward None album reached No. 1 on Amazon’s Hot New Release chart. The ensemble’s catalog of records has been featured on hundreds of radio and media stations worldwide Sirius XM, WQXR-NYC and the BBC. Apollo’s vanguard Library Voyage project, an initiative to perform at all Harris County/Houston Public Libraries, is the first of its kind in the nation.
