Join Thomas Gould and Britten Sinfonia for a heady summer evening celebrating the rhythm of the dance, from spicy tango to gypsy folk music.
In what would have been Astor Piazzolla’s 100th birthday year, the quintessential sound of the Argentinian tango, the accordion-like bandonéon, takes centre stage with a performance of his virtuoso concerto by the legendary Argentinian master, Marcelo Nisinman - a piece that blends all the sultry elegance and frenzied intensity of the Latin dance-hall. There’s a nod to Bach’s influence on Piazzolla, a dash of folk and dance music from around Europe, and finally Piazzolla’s most iconic pairing: the smoky Oblivion and the raw, racy Libertango.
