About Emilio Solla

Grammy Nominee Emilio Solla is able to summarize through this small orchestra his different ideas as composer and arranger in a large ensemble format. During the last few years he has been highly in demand as orchestrator and arranger for larger ensembles for artists such as Paquito D’Rivera and Arturo O’Farrill, both of his own pieces and the work of others, and these experiences have expanded his taste for orchestral color, bringing his writing to a new level of accomplishment.

La Inestable de Brooklyn is a nine piece orchestra with an unusual instrumental combination including two reed players, one trumpet, one trombone, accordion, violin, piano, double-bass and drums. This peculiar ensemble, made up of many different smaller units, can project textures and sounds that evoke a wide range of styles and influences. Commenting on a performance by Solla recently, The New York Times said “The virile throb of Astor Piazzolla’s nuevo tango was omnipresent in the pianist Emilio Solla’s stately pulse.” But even as the influence of the great creator of modern tango is present in Solla’s compositions, he takes here a broader approach, from academic counterpoint writing to free improvisation, from traditional tango and Latin American sounds to a standard trio plus horns that brings at times the classical color of the greatest and most distinctly American art form: jazz music.
