Hernn Jacinto and Andrs Beeuwsaert on piano, each in their own way, also marked the broad horizons that Charly’s music can encompass and that like a treasure can expand and reach unsuspected dimensions that make the original versions even more beloved.

The first block, a pure chamber assembly

The megaconcert began with the chords of the emblematic “Winter Confessions”, one of the first hymns that the singer immortalized on the second Sui Generis album and that was approached by a Chamber orchestra with three violins, three violas, two cellos, double bass, flute, oboe, horn, percussion and piano.

This formation, with its fifteen musicians and two conductors dressed in black and wearing Say No More bracelets She was in charge of reviewing part of Charly’s production in camaraderie format in the first of four blocks that will have this free concert that is transmitted in streaming and will last until 22.
