About The Concert
Angelic or demonic? Discover the passionate tango masterworks of Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla. Follow the music into the Buenos Aires night where tango was born, with the acclaimed Tango Siempre Septet and guest operatic soprano Ann Liebeck.
In the 1950s Piazzolla shook up the world of traditional tango with his new style termed ‘nuevo tango’, incorporating elements from jazz and classical music. Although controversial during his lifetime, he soon became an important musical figure and is now known as one of the world’s foremost composers of tango music.
The concert features Piazzolla’s rarely performed vocal tango ballads, plus instrumental works by classic tango masters of The Golden Age of Tango.
Guest appearance by baritone Nuno Silva and tango dancers David and Kim Benitez.
‘Here is the tango: raw, intoxicating, speaking with its true voice’
