About This Event
Join Orchestra Miami as we celebrate the 100th birthday of groundbreaking Argentinean composer Astor Piazzolla! On Argentinean Independence Day, Friday, July 9th at 8 PM, join Orchestra Miami as we celebrate one of Argentina's most famous citizens with an all-Piazzolla program at Miami Beach's North Beach Bandshell. Joining the orchestra will be special guests from Buenos Aires, guitar & vocal duo Rosa Incaica, and Bandonen master David Alsina, conducted by guest conductor Andrés Cárdenes.
Orchestra Miami's tribute begins with Piazzolla's Libertango, a statement of nuevo tango (the name fuses the words œlibertad [liberty] with tango, symbolizing the break from traditional tango to nuevo tango) in an arrangement by Thomas Kalb. Bandonenista David Alsina joins guitarist Pablo Gonz¡lez Jazey in the Double Concerto for Bandonen and Guitar, followed by David Alsina's arrangement of Histoire du Tango, for Bandonen, Guitar and bass. Following intermission, vocalist Annelise Skovmand joins Pablo Gonz¡lez Jazey and the orchestra for a selection of Piazzolla's most recognizable tangos.
