World-known jazz trumpeter, pianist and composer Arturo Sandoval will appear at Lisinski Hall on 9 October, 2019. For his 2013 performance at Lisinski Concert Hall tickets were sold out in a record amount of time, and ten Grammys, six Billboard awards and one Emmy are more than a good invitation to a jazz spectacle that will give to the fans of this genre an unforgettable experience.
His successful career started back in 1977 in his home country of Cuba, where he was strongly influenced by jazz musicians such as Charlie Parker, Clifford Brown and Dizzy Gillespie, who became his mentor and colleague. A film with Andy Garcia in the leading role was made about his life, and former U.S. President Barack Obama awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
“Born into poverty in Cuba and held back by his government, he risked everything to share his gifts with the world. In the decades since, this astonishing trumpeter, pianist and composer has inspired audiences in every corner of the world and awakened a new generation of great performers. He remains one of the best ever to play.” Obama said, amazed by the impression that Sandoval made on him.
Tickets for his performance with Croatian Radiotelevision Jazz Orchestra at Lisinski in Zagreb cost 200- 280 kn.
