Paquito D’Rivera is playing Jazz, Bebop and Latin music.

He has balanced a career in Latin jazz with commissions as a classical composer and appearances with symphony orchestras.

He is joinning many classical orchestras as solo performance.

In 2003 Paquito D’Rivera and the Assad brothers – guitarists Sérgio and Odair – first got together as participants in Yo-Yo Ma’s “Obrigado Brazil” project.

They recorded live in concert with Yo-Yo Ma at Carnegie Hall, September, 2003.

Chamber Music America awarded Paquito D’Rivera with the 2017 Bogomolny National Service Award in 2017. Go here

In addition to his extraordinary performing career as an instrumentalist, he has rapidly gained a reputation as an accomplished composer.

My favorite composition is “Contradanza” for Clarinet and Piano.
