Fandango! is a toe-tappingly spicy mix of Latin, Spanish, Sephardic, Balkan, and classical sounds founded by four multi-award-winning, globe-trotting virtuosi who hail from Spain, the USA, former Yugoslavia, and the UK, and who have played, separately and together, on the world’s most prestigious stages.

  • Flutist Eugenia Moliner, a native of Spain, has been acclaimed as “brilliant” by the British Flute Society magazine.
  • Prizewinner in twenty-four international competitions, Bosnian guitarist Denis Azabagic has been described as a “virtuoso with flawless technique” by Soundboard Magazine.
  • The artistry of American violinist Desirée Ruhstrat has captivated audiences throughout Europe and the Americas. Desirée has won numerous awards including First Prize at the National Young Musicians Debut Competition in Los Angeles.
  • British cellist David Cunliffe has served as principal cello in performances with BBC Philharmonic, BBC Scottish and Royal Scottish Symphony Orchestras.
