A subtle fusion of the power of Classic music and the authenticity of Cuban rumba
Brought to the forefront by his scores for Cinema, collaborations with talented artists such as John Legend or Michael Bublé and his viral video – 10 million views – of his extraordinary Beethoven in Havana, cover of Beethoven’s 7th Symphony, movement II, Joachim Horsley reveals his ambitious project : arranging and playing works of the most gifted classical music composers on Cuban rhythms.
He makes Beethoven and Shostakovich symphonies dancing on rumba beats, while Mahler and Rimsky-Korsakov works are strutting on latin
jazz tunes with the help on stage of a percussionist, a drummer and a double bass player.
Multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter, orchestra conductor, arranger and among Steinway Artists, Joachim Horsley plays his
preferred instrument – the piano – transport his audience, a sound journey beyond genres and boundaries.
