Cuban Night

Greetings from the «Buena Vista Social Club»: just like the world-famous jazz group in which Roberto Fonseca spent many years as replacement for the legendary Rubén González, this exceptional pianist, composer, arranger and leader has been a musical export success of the Caribbean island state. In the jazz world, Roberto Fonseca is acclaimed as one of the most impressive and charismatic musicians of our time. His exuberant musicality is the thread that holds all his rhythms, styles and sounds together: salsa, mambo, cha-cha-cha, danzon and bolero here; jazz, big band and a dash of hip-hop there. His performance, a magical combination of rhythmic precision, dynamics and intense emotion, flirts with jungle, drum ’n’ bass, classical and soul. With musical support from his quartet, the keyboard maestro from Havana lends a note of tropical heat to the Plugged-In programme. See you in Cuba!

Chill Out, the popular jam session series after the Plugged-In concerts in the Wiener Musikverein, can no longer take place at Schwarzberg in Schwarzenbergplatz, Vienna. The event is therefore being discontinued as of now and until further notice. The Tonkunstler Orchestra would like to thank Schwarzberg for its cooperation and the artists and the audiences for the unforgettable experiences.
