The camera joins the journey and underlines the point, illuminating the processes of music making in very different contexts. They come from backgrounds that could hardly be more diverse – Saluzzi from South American tango and folk traditions and Lechner from the world of European classical music, but have worked closely together since the mid-1990s. (3z(BEl Encuentro(3y (Boffers insights into the life of these travelling musicians seen here in concert, in rehearsal sessions, at recording studios, and in informal settings, variously joined by a cast that includes composer Tigran Mansurian, arranger Levon Eskenian, pianist George Gruntz, and Saluzzi’s brother, saxophonist/clarinetist Felix Saluzzi. The journey culminates in a concert of Saluzzi’s music with the Metropole Orchestra in Amsterdam’s Muziekgebow.
