Julian Coco and Curaçao: Randal Corsen meets Marlon Titre

Winternacht 2 -

Randal Corsen (piano) and Marlon Titre (classical guitar) with their band and the New European Ensemble chamber orchestra pay tribute to Julian Coco, the Curaçao guitarist/double bass player, who merged European and African music into new Caribbean music. Coco not only played the double bass in the Urecht Symfonieorkest, he also recorded Caribbean records, worked with Curaçao composers such as Emilio Prudencia and Albert Palm, and played with Dizzy Gillespie. With this programme Corsen and Titre bring arrangements of Coco's music, in addition to some compositions of their own.
