Das Latin-Classical-Crossover Ensemble „Crossmopolitans“ wurde aus der Idee gegründet, die Grenzen zwischen klassischer und popularer Musik zu lockern und beide Genres miteinander zu verbinden.
Die drei aus Südamerika stammenden, erstklassig in Wien ausgebildeten und bereits erfolgreichen Musiker haben sich zusammengeschlossen, um mit Freude neue Arrangements zu kreieren.
So interpretieren sie zum Beispiel große Meisterwerke der klassischen Musik neu, indem Sie Rhythmen Ihrer Heimatländer, folkloristische Musik und moderne Musik einfliessen lassen und neue, aufregende Stücke formen.
Mit diesem Vorhaben schaffen Sie es, das Genre „Classical-Crossover“ auf eine vollkommen neue Ebene zu stellen.
