The bandoneon and the accordion often can be found as solo instruments. But for this series of concerts with the Hartford Symphony, Labro will be accompanied by a full orchestra.
“I love the sound of both the accordion and the bandoneon against the backdrop of an orchestra,” said Labro. “I think both instruments work beautifully in the classical setting… Both instruments have such rich sounds that they bring unique textures, depth and tones when layered with big or small classical ensembles.”
For “Latin Lovers,” Labro will be performing “Aconcagua” by Astor Piazzolla.
