Pacho Flores & Turriago

The premiere of Tuomas Turriago’s Trumpet Concerto is scheduled for 5 April, at the Tampere Hall. It has been commissioned by the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra and Venezuelan Pacho Flores, a star trumpeter who records on the Deutsche Grammophon label and has twice been the winner of a Latin Grammy. Lasting 20 minutes, the concerto is a Latino, jazz and contemporary classic hybrid and treats the listener to some exciting Turriago soundworlds.
