A portrait of Django Reinhardt, the fulfillment of his own symphonic dream, featuring master guitarist Martin Taylor and the breathtaking violin wizardry of Florin Niculescu.
Django Reinhardt and the legendary violinist St├®phane Grappelli perfected a European jazz form in the legendary Le Quintette du Hot Club de France. However, the self-taught guitar genius Reinhardt was also fascinated by symphonic music and left behind a significant number of distinguished compositions which he dreamed of performing in a symphonic setting.
After sold-out concerts in Th├®├ótre des Champs Elys├®es Paris, Victoria Hall Geneva, and Auditorium Lyon, the celebrated Symphonic Django project – a posthumous fulfillment of Django’s lifelong dream – is to be performed for the first time in the UK by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and a specially invited line up of international soloists.
