Joachim HORSLEY

Joachim Horsley is a composer, Steinway endorsed pianist, and arranger living in Los Angeles, California, USA. His VIA HAVANA videos, where he performs new arrangements blending great works of classical music with afro-carribean rhythms, has been viewed millions of times online garnering him international attention. In 2018 he performed to full houses with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center and with his band at the Folie Bergere in Paris, France.

He recently composed the original score for the Disney animated series “Big City Greens. Other recent projects include arranging for Michael Bublé, John Legend's “All of Me” tour.


ALBUM

Strengthened by this success, Joachim continues on his path, summoning all the great European composers, whether German, French, Russian, Austrian (from the 18th, 19th or 20th century), on all styles of Latin music (salsa, rumba, Cuban jazz, Venezuelan music...). A bubbling creative magma that leads him to his first EP in October 2018 and the preparation of his first live.

"Via Havana" is therefore not a simple album of covers. It is a project as singular as unclassifiable. An ambitious musical concept that aims to reconcile two musical worlds that everything seems to oppose. The symphonies of Beethoven and Shostakovich start to dance on rumba rhythms, while the works of Malher, Mozart and Rimsky-Korsakov strut on Latin jazz tunes, offering to the public a unique meeting between Europe and Havana.
