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 Bandoneón 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 “libertad” [liberty] with tango, symbolizing the break from traditional tango to nuevo tango) in an arrangement by Thomas Kalb. Bandoneónista David Alsina joins guitarist Pablo González Jazey in the Double Concerto for Bandoneón and Guitar, followed by David Alsina’s arrangement of Histoire du Tango, for Bandoneón, Guitar and bass. Following intermission, vocalist Annelise Skovmand joins Pablo González Jazey and the orchestra for a selection of Piazzolla’s most recognizable tangos. Maestro Andrés Cárdenes leads Orchestra Miami in this unforgettable evening.
