Mozart y Mambo. A Cuban Journey with Sarah Willis


Mozart & Mambo: These musically irresistible encounters have been a long-cherished dream of Sarah Willis, hornist at the Berliner Philharmoniker, which came true with a grand concert in which she performs with the young musicians of the Havana Lyceum Orchestra and conductor José Antonio Méndez Padrón, as well as a Cuban salsa mambo band. A joint celebration of Mozart as never before seen and heard, including works such as Mozart’s beautiful Horn Concerto No. 3 and lots of Cuban rhythms! The documentary focuses on the musical challenge: European precision meets Cuban momentum. On the one hand, the rehearsal work is characterized by hard work, but also incredible fun with the music and the interaction of these two musical worlds on the other hand.
