Sephardic JourneySunday, April 17, 2016 - 2:00 pm
Husband and wife musicians Eugenia Moliner, flute, and Denis Azabagic, guitar, are dedicated soloists and chamber musicians. As the internationally acclaimed Cavatina Duo, they have performed in major venues around the world — from the Ravinia Festival here at home to as far afield as the National Center for the Performing Arts in Beijing.
For their new Cedille Records CD, they commissioned new compositions inspired by Sephardic music from the Jews of Spain.
For this Spring Spertus Concert, they were joined by special guests Desirée Ruhstrat and David Cunliffe of the Lincoln Trio.
The musicians also signed CDs following the performance.
This project was born of profound personal discovery for Eugenia Moliner (who is from Spain) and Denis Azabagic (from Bosnia), when both found out as adults that their families are descended from Spanish Jews.
