Thomas Yee and Jose Rodriguez teamed up to create Duo Revirado; a dynamic and unique ensemble that explores different styles and genres including Classical, Latin, Tango, Jazz, Folk, Our Arrangements, and New Music. Audiences experience Music of a wide spectrum that includes extended techniques and improvisation. The duo’s mission is to branch out to a broader audience, by presenting educational and musical programs through cultures and time that excites, inspires, and communicates positively with audiences of all ages.
This particular program features music from 3 living composers. Selections from Terry Riley’s Cantos Desiertos (Songs of the Desert.) A work commissioned and written for us by Beeri Moalem titled Kinneret (which is the largest freshwater lake in Israel.) Kevin Cope’s 3 Jewish Sephardic Songs. These 3 pieces have an eastern flair to them, evoking sounds of the desert. Tying into that will be Bartok Romanian Folk Dances. Finishing the program will be the historical rendition of the Tango through Piazzolla’s view in his amazing 4 movement work History of the Tango.
