01 Feb , 2018

CreArtBox and Le Train Bleu will perform at the sixth edition of the CreArt Music Series at the New York Society for Ethical Culture, 2 W 64th St, New York, by 7:30 pm on Friday the 30th of March, 2018.

In this edition, musicians of Le Train Bleu and CreArtBox will play together the chamber music arrangement by  Erwin Stein of Gustav Mahler’s Fourth Symphony with guest artist, soprano Janna Baty and conducted by Ransom Wilson.

CreArtBox serve as ensemble-in-residence at the New York Society for Ethical Culture. Directed by Guillermo Laporta and Josefina Urraca, the group gathers world-class musicians, composers, designers, and visual artists to create innovative multimedia and visual designs that enhances the musical experience, creating a performance that reaches a wider audience than traditional chamber music performances.

The group has been described as “a wholly authentic, visually and aurally compelling experience” (Broadway World) and “a new ensemble devoted to multidisciplinary events” (Time Out New York).

Le Train Bleu’s musicians are among the most exciting young players in New York and are chosen for their brilliance and expressive qualities.

The New York Times said of their 2010 debut performance: “Under Mr. Wilson’s baton, Le Train Bleu ensemble was both incisive and joyous in execution.” Recently, Le Train Bleu appeared at the Arts and Ideas Festival and the River to River Festival in New York City.  Last April they released their first CD on the Innova label, and in August were in residence at the Bravo!Vail festival in Colorado. The present season sees Le Train Bleu in collaboration with the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company, in concert at the New York Botanical Garden, in residence at the Ocean Reef Festival in Florida, and in concert at the 92nd St. Y.
