Here's a flavour of nuevo tango!
LMP will transport you to the sweltering squares of Buenos Aires as they mark the centenary of Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla with a sultry, slinky and seductive set of works that will raise all our temperatures!
Piazzolla revitalised the music of his homeland, particularly music inspired by the tango. Passionate, tense and driven by an endless supply of rhythmic energy, his spine-tingling compositions translate the aching soul into music.
The four movements of his ‘Four Seasons of Buenos Aires’, inspired by Vivaldi’s famous take on the seasons, appear at intervals through the concert, interspersed with other dance-inspired works by Bartok, Tchaikovsky, Brahms and Copland.
Piazzolla: Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, Oblivion, Libertango, Grand Tango
Bartok: Romanian Dances
Tchaikovsky: Waltz from Serenade
