Venezuelan classical trumpet player Pacho Flores will play at Tampere Hall for the first time in the spring! Known for his energetic interpretations, Flores combines classical and popular styles effortlessly; in fact, he is considered one of the best classical trumpetists of our time. At Tampere Flores will play a recital with his eight different trumpets and pianist Tuomas Turriago. This multi-awarded virtuoso won the Global Music Award gold medal for his album Entropia last year.
Pacho Flores’ (1981) musician father once said to his young son: “Pachito, you have good lips. You will become a trumpetist.” Flores started to study trumpet at eight years of age, at Venezuela’s well-renowned music education programme El Sistema. He made a meteoric rise to the highest echelons of the classical music world and, among other feats, won the best-known international trumpet contest, the ‘Maurice André Competition’.
Flores has been soloist with many of the world’s most acclaimed orchestras and played recitals in Carnegie Hall in New York and Opera City in Tokyo, for instance. He has played first trumpet with conductors such as Claudio Abbado and Sir Simon Rattle.
Flores is also the founder and director of the Latin-American Trumpet Academy. In addition to training young professionals, he is interested in contemporary music and has often premiered new musical works. His trumpets are by the Stomvi family, exclusively designed and made for him.
