St. Charles Public Library

Carnegie Community Room

Join virtuoso guitarist Fareed Haque and the critically-acclaimed Kaia String Quartet for a magical afternoon of Latin American Music for Classical Guitar and String Quartet.

They will perform songs from their brand new album on Delmark records.

DOWNBEAT Magazine says, "The album beautifully blurs the lines between jazz, classical, Latin and world music.... The centerpiece of the album is a stellar, 28-minute arrangement of Piazzolla’s suite Five Tango Sensations. Here, DeCelle’s cello work provides an intriguing, sturdy foundation in the movement titled “Loving.” Throughout the Piazzolla segment, and particularly during the rendition of Angulo’s suite El Alevin (The Minnow), Haque’s intricate playing techniques and sensitivity to the setting make for memorable music that warrants repeated spins. This album would appeal to fans of genre-blending artists such as the Kronos Quartet or Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble and is a wonderful entry in the expanding catalog of the 65-year-old Delmark label."
