David Mendoza and Friends - concert

Violinist David Mendoza-Diaz is a one-of-a-kind musician. The Grammy‐nominated recording artist Michael Hoppé says Mendoza's "wonderfully expressive violin playing" is, quite simply, "one of the most beautiful sounds one can hear in San Miguel de Allende."

Mendoza's music cannot be classified with a single term. Take gypsy jazz, Paganini‐level classical technique, a sighing and breathing bow, dancing fingers, and a rainbow palette of musical colors, and combine them. Mix in elements of "post‐rock" – the use of electronics to create ethereal timbres and textures, and the hypnotic repetition of musical motifs à la Brian Eno. You'll start to get the idea.

David Mendoza is giving a single concert on Wednesday, March 20, at 5pm, at the Teatro Ángela Peralta in downtown San Miguel de Allende. The concert is called Maxuul (Without Borders), but it is also being billed as David Mendoza and Friends, because five other musicians, all of them marquee names in their own right, are participating: accordionist Camille Garcia, pianist Lorelei Capell, bassist Ruben Olvera, percussionist Victor Monterrubio, and multi‐instrumentalist Billy White,

David and his guests will be performing the music of Ennio Morricone, Michael Nyman, Jules Massenet, Astor Piazzolla, and Mendoza's original compositions.
