Latin percussion in the orchestra
Claudio Estay & Carlos Vera Larrucea
Pavillon, theatre hall 1
“West Side Story, between the classic and the popular”,
a look at the original oral and written tradition in percussion.
Latin percussion in the orchestra — a difficult field. On the one hand, following the orchestra and the conductor, on the other hand, fulfilling the special requirements of the style. Carlos and Claudio have excellent experience in both and would like to give the participants tips and tricks along the way. In doing so, they will focus on the classic par excellence: West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein.
