An evening of symphonic tango with two U.S. premieres! Concierto de Nacar for tango ensemble and orchestra by the master of nuevo tango, Astor Piazzolla, features his signature melodies and harmonies with soaring solos throughout by guitar, violin, and cello.
Latin Grammy winner, Argentine pianist Pablo Estigarribia performs his Tres Tangos Concertantes, imitative of the classical concerto form in three movements, inspired by traditional Argentine tango and American jazz. Rounding out the program is Tangazo for Symphony Orchestra by Astor Piazzolla, first performed in Washington, D.C. in 1970. An edgy tango that opens with searing harmonic intensity and lyrical episodes, this work features pronounced horn solos. With Javier Sanchez on bandoneón, Sami Merdinian on violin, and Pedro Giraudo on bass.
