‘100 YEARS ASTOR PIAZZOLLA’

Online event

Astor Piazzolla, the grandmaster of the tango, was born exactly a century ago. Using elements of classical music, Argentine folk music, the jazz, pop and rock scenes, he revolutionised the traditional tango in the 1950s. His passionate, erotic and dramatic music also demonstrates an unprecedented compositional ability.  
 
On the occasion of Astor Piazzolla’s hundredth birthday, the renowned Brussels tango ensemble SONICO previews its latest album at Klarafestival. Piazzolla – Rovira: The Edge of Tango reconstructs the music of the first avant-garde tango group: Astor Piazzolla’s mythical Octeto Buenos Aires. As the tango nuevo was not a revolution of one, SONICO also performs music by the  Argentine composer Eduardo Rovira and his Octeto La Plata
 
Next, the Belgian accordion and bandoneon player and composer Gwen Cresens performs some Astor Piazzolla classics with his own Orquesta Tanguedia. The programme includes Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas: four tango compositions inspired by Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons.
