Paquito D'Rivera's Flute Party

Paquito D'Rivera was commissioned by the National Symphony in Washington, DC to create a flute concerto to be performed by virtuoso flutist, Marina Piccinini that would be influenced by the danzon of Paquito's native Cuba.

To introduce Marina to this music, he invited flutists, Jose Fajardo, Johnny Pacheco and Eddie Zervigon in addition to a host of other New York area musical artists including Sonny Bravo and Alfredito Valdez to share in this historical musical evening.

Watch a movie, see a photo gallery and hear the songs of the evening.
