ABOUT ¡CON FUEGO! (With Fire!)
"Passion and energy of flamenco to the refinement and complex harmonies of classical music” – PlanetFlamenco.com
¡Con Fuego! - Original flamenco and classical Spanish dance choreography accompany the transcendent musical beauty of the Spanish guitar with music by Isaac Albéniz, Manuel De Falla, & Joaquín Rodrigo and Paco de Lucia. With the artful blend of traditional, modern and classical bolero techniques, castanets, footwork and song, the Spanish music experience is brought to a new level: a fiery tour-de-force program of flirtation, humor, passion, love and loss. www.ConFuegoMusic.com
Founded by guitarist Aaron Larget-Caplan in 2006, Aaron sought to combine the complexity of classical music and the raw visual passion of Flamenco dance. Working with the best in the fields, award winning New York based flamenco artists and La Conja and Gabriela Granados joined the group.
In 2010 ¡Con Fuego! was the featured guest artists with the Waltham Symphony Orchestra, and in 2011 Aaron and Gabriela will be joined by award winning cellist Raffael Popper-Keizer at the International Festival of Arts & Ideas in New Haven CT. Concerts in Colorado, New Hampshire and Massachusetts are also on the calendar. Whether performing as an ensemble, with orchestra or doing educational programs in schools and community setting, ¡Con Fuego! is an exhilarating ensemble with music and dance that transcend the classical and world music genres. www.ConFuegoMusic.com
“Larget-Caplan’s playing came through exuberantly bringing forth a Hemingway-in-Spain ardor and ambiance to the hall.” – Armenian Weekly
