Sarah Willis - Mozart y Mambo - WQXR

Cuba may be the last place you’d expect to find top-flight Mozart playing, but thanks to the Havana Lyceum Orchestra (founded in 2007 with support from the composer’s hometown Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation), his music is flourishing there. Here the ensemble is joined by British horn player Sarah Willis, whose burnished tone and effortless virtuosity shines in these innovative mashups of Mozart’s melodies and vivacious Mambo rhythms.
