“Music in Motion—That motion is the gentle rocking of a boat for this series of family neighborhood concerts presented by Bargemusic, the floating barge at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge. As always, the material — announced just before the performance — is chamber music, but these programs differ in important ways from the regular Bargemusic fare: With unreserved seating, they last only an hour, include a post-show question-and-answer session with the musicians and are all free.” —New York Times, August 21, 2015

Masterworks Series

El Violin Latino

The idea of the El Violin Latino series developed some time ago in a café in New York during a session—and resulted in two CD releases and a 3rd one coming. Mappy Torres, a Cuban poet, described the “Latin Violin” with words, Gregor Huebner described it with his music. To him the violin is the common denominator of different genres. While his personal style slips in the compositions, too, Huebner was heavily influenced by Eastern European Folk and Gypsy music. The result is a line-up of compositions of the most important Latin American composers and his own works written in the same unmistakable style. For Gregor Huebner, the influence of Eastern European music is clearly audible in the music of South America. He feels comfortable there. There he is at home. Huebner’s recipe for success is: “Absorb everything you experience, and then concentrate on the things that interest you. But never deny where you came from.” Thus his own roots and personal experiences play a central role in his music and in his playing. Gregor Huebner put together a band specifically for his concerts, because going on tour with three different bands would go beyond the scope of practicability.
