Hugo Fernandez Quartet Feat Vladimir Karparov, is the meeting four three top-level musicians, around a new vision of contemporary jazz. The interaction and energy of this ensemble, will naturally take us to unexpected sounding places.
Music inspired by the rich legacy of jazz that blends with other styles such as pop/rock, folklore and classical music. This singular trio is the encounter of artists who separately have wide and eclectic careers that have taken them through classical music, pop, folklore and jazz. Their repertoire is mostly original compositions and a couple of jazz arrangements of renowned pieces.
